New York state bill to require review of gun-license applicants’ social media & search history

5 (100%) 3 votes

Behind the mask of the Left is the face of totalitarianism.

There is a bill in the New York State Assembly, S. 9191, which would require:

  1. A review of one’s social media and search engine prior to the approval of an application or renewal of a gun license.
  2. The consent of anyone applying for a license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver or a renewal of such license to have his/her social media accounts and search engine history reviewed and investigated for certain posts and/or searches over a period of 1-3 years prior to the approval of such application or renewal.
  3. The state government investigator will look for slurs or “biased language” about race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation; threats against another’s health or safety; “acts of terrorism”; and the all-purpose “any other issue deemed necessary” by the investigator.
  4. All of this intrusion into one’s privacy and, therefore, violations of the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, is justified in order “to show the good character, competency and integrity of each person or individual signing the [gun license] application.”

S. 9191 states:

In order to ascertain whether any social media account or search engine history of an applicant presents any good cause for the denial of a license, the investigating officer shall, after obtaining the applicant’s consent pursuant to subdivision three of this section, and obtaining any log-in name, password or other means for accessing a personal account, service, or electronic communications device necessary to review such applicant’s social media accounts and search engine history, review an applicant’s social media accounts for the previous three years and search engine history for the previous year and investigate an applicant’s posts or searches related to (i) commonly known profane slurs or biased language used to describe the race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability or sexual orientation of a person; (ii) threatening the health or safety of another person; (iii) an act of terrorism; or (iv) any other issue deemed necessary by the investigating officer. For the purposes of this subdivision, “social media accounts” shall only include Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram, and “search engine” shall only include Google, Yahoo and Bing.

On November 14, 2018, S. 9191 was referred to the Rules Committee.

S. 9191 is sponsored by state senator Kevin S. Parker, Democrat, who has a history of assaulting people. From Wikipedia:

  • In January 2005, Parker was arrested after punching a traffic agent in the face during a dispute over a traffic citation that he had been issu. He was subsequently charged with third degree assault, a misdemeanor, but the charges were dropped after he agreed to take anger management classes.
  • In 2008, an aide filed charges against Parker, claiming he pushed her during an argument and smashed her glasses.
  • On May 8, 2009, Parker was charged with felony criminal mischief for attacking a New York Post photographer, breaking his finger, and damaging the photographer’s camera and car door. Parker was stripped of his leadership position as majority whip and chair of the Energy Committee; convicted of a misdemeanor charge, criminal mischief; and sentenced to three years probation and a $1,000 fine.  Senate Democrats expressed an unwillingness to expel Parker.
  • In February 2010, Parker was restrained by his colleagues during a profane tirade against Senator Diane Savino in which Parker referred to Savino as a “b****”.
  • In April 2010, Parker launched into a 2-minute tirade while colleague John DeFrancisco of Syracuse was questioning a black nominee for the New York State Power Authority. When committee chairman Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn) told Parker he would be removed from the hearing room if he didn’t settle down, Parker accused his colleagues of racism, and followed up in a radio interview by accusing his Republican “enemies” of being white supremacists.

Parker should be the first to have his social media and search history investigated. Given his history of assaults, physical and verbal, he would also be the first to flunk the investigation.

  1. Well, here we go, communism in its early beginnings, who can purchase the guns? Nobody!!!! I hope not to be around buit is knocking on the door and getting one foot in. BEWARE! My beloved Father once told us communism will be a reality. Papa, you were so right.

    • Yep, just apply here and we’ll get you to a reeducation center soon. Isn’t it remarkable that they are always eminently qualified to review our history and make determinations on our proclivities?

  2. Parker is a dumb a** and useful idiot/moron. He wouldn’t be able to pass the provisions in his own bill. He has major anger issues, is a menace to society and definitely should not own firearms.

  3. This is such BS. These commie bast@rds will find any way to strip us of our rights.

    I hope a pro-2A organization can fight this baloney bill.

    • What used to happen was that the Supreme Court would remind them of what “…shall not be infringed” means. Then they would tuck in their tails and go to their corner for a while. That hasn’t happened for quite some time.

      We need to have them either issue (or at least support) a major statement/resolution that this country abides by its enduring Constitution. Certain things are off limits and gun legislation is one of them.

  4. My father, who was forced at age 22 to flee Italy from the Black Shirts before they came to assassinate him, ex judicio, told me that when common people can no longer bear common firearms, then their rulers will be tyrants. What was his political offense? He was a pacifist anarchist, surely the tamest political position in fascist Italy.

    This ignorant clown, dressed in the best charcoal grey and pink high fashion of the early 60s, is of the Supreme Class of stupidity, which does not realise how profoundly stupid it is. I doubt that he has enough cunning to grasp how hypocritical he is.

  5. This will be used as a way of putting the government’s foot in the door to get the people to accept constant surveillance and universal investigation. “It’s for our own good” is what people will be conditioned to think. The same with investigations into people’s mental health, which is being pushed by the psychiatric profession. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5), actually lists “Oppositional Defiant Disorder” as a mental affliction. One of the symptoms of this dread disease is “often argues with authority figures.” Here is a link to a PDF that describes this “disorder”:

    The first amendment doesn’t allow Congress to outlaw certain opinions, but that doesn’t mean that the psychiatric profession can’t define them as illnesses.I’d heard that the Soviet Union put many of its dissidents in mental hospitals both to silence them and to brand them as examples of mentally ill people. We may or may not go that far, but there have also been calls to put psychotropic drugs into the drinking water. Some claim that areas with higher natural levels of lithium in the water have lower suicide rates, but a recent study demonstrates that this is not the case:

    We may not end up putting lithium in the water, but precedent has already been established with fluoride. Also, studies have shown that consuming fluoride does not enhance dental health, but the dental profession still insists that we continue fluoridation.

  6. The useful idiot, Parker must know he will NEVER get his bill in the hopper. No co-sponsor and no republicans. Why would he do this when less than 1% of the population get permits; 0.57% to be exact from statics link below.

    What puzzles me is–why the “Red Flag gun bill” started in MD (then 1-1/2 months later, one man is killed in his home by Police) and earlier this week, 4 more shot dead @ Mercy Hospital in Chicago, another “Red Flag” state? @ Mercy Hospital. As of May 31, 2017, Illinois issued 243,245 permits; 2.46% of population. Once again, same pattern – no photo/video of crime scene in Chicago?

    States with UNDER ONE PERCENT of the Population issued permits to carry.
    New York 0.57%
    Maryland 0.37%
    California 0.31%
    Rhode Island 0.30%
    District of Columbia 0.02%
    New Jersey 0.01%
    Hawaii 0.00%

  7. “When Communism comes to America, it will be under the label of Liberalism”

  8. Beware of politicians wearing pink. I wonder if he’s a “top” or a “bottom”?

  9. Talk about the camel’s nose under the tent… no one could pass, either to buy new guns or to keep the ones they had.

    • Yeah, just look how that reads:
      “or (iv) any other issue deemed necessary by the investigating officer.”

      Reminds me of the old jokes about poll tests. “Lawd, lawd, look’s like no colored’s votin’ heh tonight”.

  10. That wording, “any other issue deemed necessary by the investigating officer,” becomes an obvious “black box” for rejecting conservative white Christians whose social media and search engine background check came up clean yet marked them for the purpose of denying them a permit or renewal.

    Connecting the dots, the list of “dignitary harm” disqualifiers in this bill is too much like those mentioned in fotm’s recent article on the Dems’ push on the national scale to gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by elevating hurt feelings above the First Amendment. Basically, in this NY bill both the First Amendment and Second Amendment are nullified.

    One of the glaring inconsistencies in this NY bill is its absurd pretense that political incorrectness is a predictor of gun violence while the pre-crime predictive-policing technology in place in leftist-controlled cities already quietly red lines high crime areas and would actually cut gun violence by denying permits or renewals in high-crime areas and to criminal thugs like Parker.

  11. any move in that direction is a move toward thought crime. not a slippery slope. a straight down cliff.

  12. Think of this…. 2 of the 3 ass clowns that rammed NY-SAFE up our collective asses are now convicted felons…. Sheldon Silver is sentenced to 7 years Federal time and Dean Skelos got 4 years 3 months…. Andrew Cuomo should be indicted and convicted along with them… All of his goombahs have been run in for corruption…. As far as that fancy fool putting forth this insane drivel, he could not pass his own litmus test…. I guess my words are hateful then because I think all those bastards are so crooked that when they die they will have to be screwed into the ground…. Watertender hath spoken!!

  13. In my opinion, guns will be the last threshold….make it or break it.

  14. The bill is unconstitutional on its face. But this is what George W. Bush & Dick Cheney ushered into America in the so-called “War on Terror.” The Fourth Amendment was basically the first to be effectively neutered. Now the First Amendment, thanks to Big Tech is on its way out, and of course the little lugubrious leftist lemmings of doom are once again salivating over the Second Amendment.
    Parker should be locked in a cage with Alec Baldwin! I’d pay good money to see that!

  15. Parker should be the first to have his social media and search history investigated. Given his history of assaults, physical and verbal, he would also be the first to flunk the investigation.

    Hear, hear! The hypocrisy of these people NEVER ceases to amaze me…
