  • Social Media Checks for Firearm Purchase?

    Leave it to New Yorkistan.

    NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Two New York lawmakers are working to draft a bill that would propose a social media check before a gun purchase.

    Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and state Sen. Kevin Palmer’s proposal would allow authorities to review three years of social media history and one year of internet search history of any person seeking to purchase a firearm.
    “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 fire arm,” Adams explains.

    The two are hoping to identify any hate speech on social media profiles, which are often revealed only after someone is arrested in a mass shooting.
    I wonder who will get to define what is considered hate speech.

    I'm sure this will be a quick and timely check that doesn't cost taxpayers any money.

    Meanwhile, members of the liberal "media" can publish whatever disgusting garbage they please and not have to worry about any limitations on their 1st amendment rights.
