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.

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

There are some logistical concerns as free speech and gun rights complaints are likely to come up. Though, Adams and Palmer say it is doable and needed.

Not the worst idea in history, working around the 1st amendment might be touchy though.

When "it's on the internet, it must be true" becomes a real life law....

Lets see how many amendments of the Constitution we can piss on today. Maybe they should propose bringing back literacy tests for voting that Democrats liked so much up into the 60s.

1 year of internet search history?

Worst idea ever. Instant big brother. People would be afraid to run searches that might make them look bad. "Can't look up a fix for my broken AK. Can't look up fireworks. Can't look up mental health issues..."

This bill is nothing but grandstanding. It won't go anywhere.

On the 1% chance it did turn into a law, it would be overturned by the courts. It's against at least the 1st and 4th Amendments.

They need to make it so that anyone drafting or signing legislation that is deemed unconstitutional that the people drafting it or signing it are removed from office. :s00ls:

Thankfully we got Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in, if it had been Hillary in office I might be worried.

They'd probably go out of their way to shut this site down if they knew anything about it, so much pro American/anti socialist posts. And we even have an official gun thread!!!

SHUT... IT... DOWN!!!!

Just wanted to say if they were honest they'd just say they were trying to imitate China's social credit.
