What Could Possibly Go Wrong With This Method of Vetting Gun Purchases?

Dana Mathewson

I mean, if you trust everything you read on social media, I suppose this is a good idea. Maybe it even rates a "3" on a scale of 1 to 10 -- but only if you're using a logarithmic scale like the Richter Scale.

That's why a Democrat politician from New York City is pushing it (tell me you're surprised). And it appears that the guy has some skeletons rattling in his own closet. But that's no problem, as Democrats are afraid of guns, as we all know; they hire others to carry guns for them.

Be careful what you tweet,if you hope to someday lawfully own a firearm in New York state.

A Democratic state lawmaker from Brooklyn has submitted a bill calling for all gun-license applicants to let the government review their social media posts going back three years and their internet searches going back one year.

Investigators would then look [for] "any good cause for the denial of a license," such as racial slurs, threats of violence and terrorism-related posts.

But the bill's sponsor, state Sen. Kevin Parker, has a history of his own legal skirmishes.

Parker was convicted in 2010 of roughing up a New York Post photographer-- and allegedly did the same to a traffic agent in 2005, but avoided punishment by agreeing to undergo anger management training.

In addition, government records cited by the Post in 2017 indicated Parker owed more than $50,000 in property taxes and water bills.

As for his background-check bill, gun-license applicants would surrender their passwords for Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram accounts, and subject to scrutiny their search histories on Google, Yahoo, and Bing search engines.

Nope. I don't think so, folks. But I have a counter-offer. Let's require the same kind of scrutiny for people who wish to hire armed bodyguards -- make them justify them.
