NY Democrats Want to Look at Your Facebook Page Before Selling You a Gun

New York’s WCBS 880 reported this week that two state lawmakers are collaborating on a new bill that would require gun purchasers to submit to a review of their social media history before being allowed to buy a firearm. The bill is being drafted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and State Sen. Kevin Palmer, and it would give authorities the right to search three years’ worth of not just your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram activity, but your internet search history as well.

“A three-year review of a social media profile would give an easy profile of a person who is not suitable to hold and possess a firearm,” said Adams.

Adams said that their bill was only building on what police departments and federal authorities do in the wake of a mass tragedy.

“If the police department is reviewing a gang assault, a robbery, some type of shooting, they go and do a social media profile investigation,” he said.

Therefore, no reason why they can’t do it pre-emptively, eh?

And you thought Minority Report was science fiction.

“We certainly want to make sure that we’re adding to the protections that we need to make sure that people that we’re putting handguns and rifles and shotguns in their possession, that they in fact are the people that are using them in the right way,” said Sen. Parker.

The two Democrats were reportedly inspired to come up with this legislation after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left 12 people dead.

“The shooter in Pennsylvania had no criminal flags,” Adams told the New York Daily News. “You would have thought this person was a model citizen until you examined his social media profile. He was a broken citizen. He was a time bomb waiting to explode, and that is why it’s important to do this type of review.”

People who wanted to re-certify their license to carry in New York would also have to submit to the review.

We thought we were past the point where these gun-grabbing liberals could surprise us, but you can never underestimate the enemies of freedom. If we’re at the point where our right to bear arms is contingent on letting a bunch of Democrats peruse our internet histories for “red flags,” then the Second Amendment is already a relic of the past.

We doubt this bill is going anywhere – not even in a left-wing outlier like New York – but the mere fact that they’re out there proposing this kind of thing bodes ominously for the future.

  1. The responsible gun owners of New York should fight this with all means possible.This is a 4th amendment violation and needs to be pursued.

      • EASY SOLUTION, DONT REGISTER ANY WEAPONS, AND DONT SUBSCRIBE TO FACEBOOK OR TWITTER OR ANY OTHER LEFTIST ORWELLIAN BULLS%$T.

    • Although my Facebook page is public to my family and friends, I already find it an invasion of my privacy for my boss or the company I work for to be able to access it for any reason! What constitutes a red flag? A very pious and religious person? A hard core Conservative? A soldier coming back from a war zone? (I know SoCal!) Maybe if we took better care of our soldiers and quit giving to illegals and wealthy politicians, PTSD could be handled better!
      The fact is that if you take my guns…you leave me at the mercy of criminals, police, and our oh so very beloved government! Remember, sci-fi like George Orwell, or just political fiction as in Ayn Rands ‘The Fountainhead, or Atlas Shrugged’ are rearing their ugly heads! Now is the time for the whole country to read these books! It is happening! It can be turned around though, WAKE UP! I would rather trust my double barreled shotgun or my 9mm Glock than wait for the police to arrive! Sometimes the cops are wayyy too late. What about AntiFa assaulting Carlson’s front door? He was at work! What gave them the right to do that? It is not civilized nor acceptable behavior. They are getting away with it though. Just like when the PTB. (Powers that be) decide to tell cops to stand down at rallies when 2 opposing factions are going to be there. Kinda like gang wars in the 70s the difference is only AntiFa and like minded protesters are violent!

  2. Now that would present a problem. I don’t use any sort of “social media” such as Facebook, Twitter or the like. However, I will drop my pants and they can kiss that.

  3. All voters for “so-called Progressive Liberals” should have thought of the invasive methods of Governing that the Left would use if in power. No Democrats should complain, specially in the coming two years, that the “Government” is invading their privacy. You get what you vote for. I wonder what part of the US the Government bodies, who are so inclined, will use as a Siberian Gulag? North Alaska? Anywhere else is a Paradise by comparison.

  4. The Liberal NAZIS That Ruin The Once Great State Of NY Had Better Stop Playing Big Brother Is Watching Violations Of The 2 Will Be No Longer Allowed The Courts Now Will Over Turn These Bad Laws

  5. it is the crazy democrats that should not be allowed any type of weapons since they are the one who is murdering everyone in these shooting.

  6. I don’t have a Facebook page. Never did. Closed my Twitter account. Have already gotten feedback that this alone makes me appear “suspicious”.

  7. I wish new york could get its crap straightened out so all these da– yankies would quit moving to North Carolina and screwing our state up. They can’t figure out their libtard ideas won’t work but just keep on with this junk. PLEASE STOP

  8. The progressives, which probably include all running for office on the democrat ballot, count on the honesty and decent and in orderliness of the good honest and God fearing to be honest and then want everyone to consider them as honest. This may end in a most ugly and destructive way as the progressives will not stop until they are usually stopped by force. Madeline Murray OHare and the evil Supreme Court of her day began this and it will only end in destruction.

  9. The Dumbocrat/Socialists “Not Democratic Patriots” want to know about my protection “SCREW THEM” !!!
    The first thing people that want warped forms of government is who to take weapons from Good People!!! The Nazis did it, the Communists did and Dictators do!!! They want to be the only people left with weapons it makes things so easy for them !!!

  10. How can you tell what is a true or false item on facebook?
    How about a fake account?
    What if I don’t have a facebook account?

    Once they get your facebook, they will want to investigate your friends and followers…. a slippery slope!

    It’s my facebook page, no one has right to look at it if I have it private.

    • Think about it, If CORRUPT “king” andy cuomo wants your guns (and he DOES, like any rabid COMMUNIST) his “henchmen” will plant “misinformation” on your site to make you LOOK the way they want. NEVER underestimate the “governor” and his “minions”. Don’t forget he thinks he is a “king” so “laws” don’t bother him.

  11. Given the political leaning for NY liberals, I’m sure those voicing support for Trump would be treated fairly (not).

  12. I did not buy my weapon from a New York Democrat but from a reputable Gun Store. Why do the New York democrats think they have the right to tell me or anyone else what we can do with our money? Sounds to me like they need to find somewhere else to stick their heads rather than into my Rights as an American citizen.

  13. Idiots may search my NRA Golden Eagle membership too if they wish.
    Just to make it interesting though, this would only be valid after they have
    published the complete list of NRA murderers.

    how’s that? — I didn’t hear you.
