You May Soon Be FORCED To Submit Your Social Media History To Buy A Gun In Some States
Completely ignoring the fact that the Constitution and the Supreme Court respectively have hammered down pretty clear rules when it comes to gun laws, the state of New York has decided to somehow get even more like 1984 when it comes to firearms.
According to a new report, if you want to buy a gun in that state there is a bill being proposed that if passed would require someone to submit their social media profiles and internet search history prior to purchasing a weapon.
Now, this is a ridiculous notion all in itself but there are people that have their own personal social media accounts and the accounts that they administer that aren’t of a personal nature (people that post for museums and old newspaper clippings to name a couple) that would somehow have an ad for a television from sixty years ago somehow be relevant to their purchase of a firearm.
The legislation was drafted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and State Senator Kevin Parker.
You’ll be shocked to know they are both Democrats. They want you to submit up to three years’ worth of search history on social media for review. Other leftist states are considering similar measures. Fox News has more on this unconstitutional move by the left:
Those looking to buy a gun in New York may need to submit their social media profiles and search history prior to purchase if new firearm legislation in the state becomes law.
Under the legislation drafted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and State Senator Kevin Parker, both Democrats, up to three years’ worth of search history on social media would be able to be reviewed, ABC Action News reported.
Under the proposed legislation, law enforcement officials could investigate “commonly known profane slurs used or biased language used to describe race, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, disability or sexual orientation; threatening health or safety of another person, or an act of terrorism.”
“There should be more restrictions on how guns are purchased. We should have more background checks,” Paul McQuillen, director of the Buffalo chapter of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, said. “We’ve obviously seen some of the mass shooters have a social media history that should have sent red flags,” he said.
