NY state senator Kevin Parker has introduced a bill that if passed would require a proposed gun buyer to surrender his social media accounts and passwords to the NYSP. The NYSP would then check the social media for any possible "hate speech". If any is found, the purchase would be denied. The question remains, who determines what speech is hateful.

Does anyone actually think this will stop at gun buying? Once enacted I'm sure NY will think it will be a fine idea to check the Social Media of "current" gun owners to see if they should continue to own their guns.
Why are we encouraged not to judge all Muslims by the lunatics BUT are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the very few lunatics? Ironic?
I don't have a twatter, instascam, etc. account. If I tell them I don't have any, what are they going to do? Deny me outright?
When seconds count, the police are only minutes away!
If you beat your swords into plowshares, you will become farmers for those who didn't!
Political Correctness is fascism pretending to be Manners-George Carlin
Too many NY gun owners are misinformed or not well enough informed. There never was a 5 round limit. The NY safe act limited us to 7 in a mag and the courts said they had to allow us 10. The law was never amended so the 7 round BS was apparently still in effect but recently in Erie County (Buffalo) the DA said he had no problem with 10 rounds.
This is the same asshole that apparently has an anger management issue himself. Typical leftist asshole.
Democrat State Senator Kevin Parker’s Suggestion to Woman: ‘Kill Yourself’
New York State Senator Kevin Parker, a member of the Democrat, told a woman on Twitter to kill herself, Tuesday. He apparently became enraged when she pointed out he parked his car in a bike lane.
Parker then deleted the tweet and apologized, posting, “I sincerely apologize. I used a poor choice of words. Suicide is a serious thing and should not be made light of.”
Despite apologizing to Giove, Parker continued to attack her on Twitter, claiming she was on “the wrong side of history.”
Twitter users quickly called for Parker’s resignation from the State Senate, with many expressing disbelief over his comments.
According to Gothamist, Parker “is known for having something of a temper,” and the state senator has previously been involved in several violent incidents.
“The [New York] Times wrote about several incidents involving him, saying he had ‘toxic’ anger,” Gothamist reported, adding that incidents have included him punching a traffic officer, attacking a New York Post photographer, and assaulting an aide before smashing her glasses.
Parker’s comment on Twitter goes against Twitter’s rules, which state users may not “wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual,” or “promote or encourage suicide or self-harm.”
Twitter also prohibits “abuse” on the platform, which it defines as “the targeted harassment of someone,” and “an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.”
As of this writing, Parker has not lost his verification or had his account suspended.
Just yesterday NY Senator Kevin Parker tweeted "Kill Yourself!" to a GOP Staffer that called him out re: misuse of an Official Parking Placard....I wonder if that qualifies as 'Hate Speech' in New Yorkistan??
ETA - Apparently typing speed is not one of my God given talents!
If Some is Good, and More is Better.....then Too Much, is Just Enough !!
