New York to Demand Social Media History For Gun Ownership

Chinese-style social credit score in full swing.

People in New York who want a license for a gun will be required to hand over their social media history in order to pass a “character and conduct” test under new legislation.

The new program bears a chilling resemblance to China’s social credit score system and raises the prospect that conservatives could be denied gun ownership based on their political opinions.

The move came in response to the Supreme Court striking down a law that required someone to prove they faced a unique threat before being allowed to conceal carry outside their homes.

Applicants for a gun license in the state will now be required to display, “the essential character, temperament, and judgment necessary to be entrusted with a weapon and to use it only in a manner that does not endanger oneself and others.”

That includes handing over all of their social media profiles they have maintained over the past three years, with authorities given the opportunity to trawl through every single political opinion and lifestyle choice the applicant has posted.

“The law does not specify whether authorities will require private accounts, those that are not visible to the public,” reports Reclaim the Net.

Republicans have vowed to oppose the new law.

“Now we’re going to let the pizzeria owner decide whether or not I can express my constitutional right,” said Sen. Andrew Lanza, a Staten Island Republican. “This is a disgrace. See you in the courts.”

As we previously highlighted, citizens in China also have their social media footprint monitored by authorities under the country’s onerous social credit system.

Those who are deemed to have engaged in anti-government speech are denied basic rights such as the ability to use public transport and are denied loans, bank accounts and other financial services.

Report: FBI Raid Targeted Docs Trump Collected To “Exonerate” Himself From Russiagate Hoax

“Material that Trump apparently thought would exonerate him of any claims of Russian collusion in 2016 or any other election-related charges.”

A report in Newsweek citing U.S. intelligence officials has claimed that one of the main purposes of the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago was to find documents that President Trump had collected and intended to use as proof to put to bed once and for all the Russian collusion conspiracy theory.

The report states that Trump intended to “weaponise” the documents as part of his campaign for 2024.

The article notes that “The sought-after documents deal with a variety of intelligence matters of interest to the former president, the officials suggest—including material that Trump apparently thought would exonerate him of any claims of Russian collusion in 2016 or any other election-related charges.”

The piece also quotes a former Trump official who states that “Trump was particularly interested in matters related to the Russia hoax and the wrong-doings of the deep state.”

“I think he felt, and I agree, that these are facts that the American people need to know,” the anonymous former aide added.

This development comes as a Florida federal magistrate is scheduled to hold a hearing on whether or not to unseal the probable cause affidavit for the raid.

Commenting on the ongoing matter, Senator Rand Paul stated that “the burden is on the FBI to justify this raid.”

In a Fox News appearance, Paul said “This is extraordinary. This is also the same FBI that used a foreign intelligence warrant to snoop on and spy on the Trump campaign to investigate them for over two years. So I think the burden really is on the FBI. They’ve been wrong in the past. They’ve broken the law in using these foreign intelligence warrants. Now they used a domestic warrant, but I do think they need to release the justification for this, because this is extraordinary.”

The Senator further urged “We should not lose sight of the fact this has never, ever happened before for good reason, because we need to have confidence in the FBI. We need to have confidence in our intelligence agencies that they’re there to protect us and not to go after people for political purposes. So the burden is on them to prove that this is not a politically motivated witch hunt.”

Paul hit out at FBI director Christopher Wray, asserting that he “thinks it’s fine to use FISA or foreign intelligence warrants on Americans, and a lot of people think that’s true. I don’t, but this is part of the abuse. But this is part of the same people who are still running the FBI. They have a different understanding, maybe, of what they think the FBI can and cannot do and how it should be used on Americans, but I’m going to require proof that there was actually some sort of probable cause of a crime, and I’m suspicious that there was not.”

    She couldn’t get 40% of her own constituents to vote for her

    After failing to convince even 40 percent of her own constituents to vote for her, Liz Cheney suggested Wednesday that she might try running for President.

    Cheney made the comments on the TODAY show, stating “That’s a decision I’m going to make in the coming months… It is something I’m thinking about.”

    Cheney also declared “I will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.”

    As host Savannah Guthrie noted, Cheney will lead an organisation that will mount a “unified effort” to prevent Trump from running for President.

    “In coming weeks, Liz will be launching an organization to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president,” Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told Politico.

    Surely this will all just help Trump.

    In her speech earlier this week as it became clear she had lost in a landslide, Cheney actually compared herself to Abraham Lincoln:
