"Available to the public"

They just can google your name and decide to use your profile to deny you. Its not handing over credentials.

I think it was New York that took it a step further and wanted login creds as well.

laughable at best; the poor boys and girls in the FOID section are about 8 months behind. Now check applicants social media account? That means tasking investigations to conduct it. What a fucking joke and these are the fucking bone heads we vote into office that come up with these bills. Maybe these politicians should focus on why manpower is at an all time low in the State Police and how we can't even man offices like the FOID section with bodies to keep up with the work load. Fuck, your average wait time for a crash report is at a minimum, 30 minutes, in a snow storm its hours. We dont have enough bodies to do the bare minimum, let alone check social media accounts for a FOID card application.....................

I don't know Leo too well, but he doesn't seem like the type of guy to want anything to do with something like this.

Great guy, unfortunately his term ended the other night. Best director ive worked for, cant say enough great things about him. He didnt care if you were a trooper or colonel, he took the time to give his support.

Probably what the Democrats want. It will take years for people to get FOID cards....

Eventually we'll just hire some more government workers to pick up the slack and make the machine bigger.... thus raising your taxes
