Default New York Lawmakers Want Social Media History To Be Included In Gun Background Checks

Quote:
Eric Adams, the president of Brooklyn Borough, and state Senator Kevin Palmer are currently writing the proposed legislation, which would give law enforcement authorities the power to check up to three years of an individual’s social media accounts and internet search history before they are allowed to buy a gun,

“If there’s something that a law enforcement officer of a reasonable mind reviewed that shows this person does not hold the mental capacity to own a gun, then he should not be able to get a permit. We should use the same standard that determines whether a police officer can carry a gun.”
This would require you to hand over the passwords of your social media accounts to authorities. That is unreasonable search and seizure, in my opinion, which violates the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, let alone the blatant violation of the 2nd Amendment's right to bear arms.

It also leaves it up to the personal disgression of an un-elected official.

New York is f*cked up. We know that when you cram 10 million people into a city, there are going to be problems. The bad guys will ALWAYS find a way to get firearms [homemade, stealing, etc.], so why keep making it harder for the good guys to bear arms? I realize that we don't want every nutjob with a mental disorder to have a gun, but law enforcement should not be the ones to deem a civilian fit or unfit to own a firearm.

not making it harder for the "good guys" to get guns in this scenario

making it harder for crazies

I imagine they'd just scroll through your Facebook not use your password, lots of employers are now doing that as part of their background check

if you're a conspiracy type I don't know why you'd have social media at all, that **** is obviously compromised half a dozen ways

I agree that we should filter out the crazies, but we have to do it the right way. Also, if your Facebook account is set to private, only friends can see your posts, so that would mean the cops forcing you to unlock your private media for them to view.

"No matter how it's pitched, it all comes down to this: no Second Amendment rights for New Yorkers if they don't use their First Amendment rights in a way their government approves."

I doubt it.

what it looks like the bill would say is that social media can be used as grounds to deny a permit

we're seeing that a few of these mass shooters had huge glaring red flags up online in plain sight

idk should employers run background checks at all?

without social media, stuff like your credit score is still fair game and they get to make you pee in a cup

to me using Facebook actively at this point is madness, but maybe that's a bit of Merit in me

Every key stroke under our social media accounts is monitored by artificially intelligent computer systems, which funnel it to the NSA, who archives the metadata at their facility in Utah.
