Wow, New York just doesn’t learn. The AP is reporting that the New York legislature is considering a bill that would require people applying for a handgun license to turn over a list of their social media accounts so their “character and conduct” could be verified … by whom? We don’t know.
New York would require people applying for a handgun license to turn over a list of their social media accounts so officials could verify their “character and conduct” under a bill being considered Friday by the state Legislature. https://t.co/7rDdbV9zNU

“Shall not be infringed” just means nothing to these people.
Back to #SCOTUS it will go.

Who wants to apply for the job of vetting people’s personal media? I can’t decide if that would be the funniest thing in the world or if I would hang myself after the first day.

We just went through this? Why again?

What if someone doesn’t have a social media account like my husband? I’m sure the Left would consider that type of person an extreme danger to society.

We can infringe on your rights if you don’t follow the right people on Twitter. Fuck New York

So New Yorkers get to choose between their 1st or 2nd Amendment Rights?

Better headline…New York headed for another beat down at SCOTUS. Good Lord…a bureaucrat gets to decide a person’s character and conduct. Nothing subjective there….

Gotta make sure your social credit score is good and you’re not subverting the societal norms (which are largely a debasement of everything natural and good).

Who’s evaluating the character of the officials?

Bruen ruling overturned all subjective criteria for CCW permitting. Also, new gun laws must strictly adhere to text & history.
This whole NY bill is subjective and capricious.

That is against the first and fourth amendment, not to mention the second. I mean, hell!

Well, that sounds a little infringy.
Do the same for registering to vote.

They should make this a law for getting hired at the New York Times. A lot of journalists have a lot of juicy tweets in their past.
