So um… some libs think the best way to keep crazies from having guns is for someone to look over all of YOUR social media posts.
This idea could potentially save lives.
Please consider this for Florida.
It could have aided in preventing the Parkland shooting given the disturbing recorded social media history of the shooter.

According to Newsweek:
If the bill passes, investigators would be able to look for posts or searches that contain threats to the health or safety of others; intentions to carry out an act of terrorism; or commonly known profane slurs or biased language describing the race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation of a person.
In order for investigators to access personal accounts, applicants would have to give over their login details to social media platforms such as Facebook Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.
“Commonly known profane slurs or biased language describing …gender…sexual orientation of a person” will get your guns rights stripped.
SO, depending on who’s monitoring your social media, a post like “there are only two genders” or “transgenderism should be treated as a mental illness” might kiss your gun rights goodbye.
This is INSANITY.
The Broward Sheriffs Department had 40+ warnings about the shooter. Their lack of access to his Youtube comments was not the problem.
But sure, let’s make government approval of our social media posts a condition for exercising our constitutional rights. What could go wrong? https://t.co/p8BUUxXh7u

Remember that the FBI had access to his YouTube comments, but couldn’t figure out what “I want to be a professional school shooter” meant.

The true disconnect here is that people think that giving away someone else’s rights is a solution. They fail to understand that once you set a precedent that taking away rights to achieve “security” it doesn’t end with other people’s rights. Governments will abuse power.

No. If the FBI had acted on the call from the shooters family or Broward County had put student safety over the feel good BS of the Promise program, Parkland doesn’t happen. Stop advocating rights erosion when the the laws on the books now are not properly enforced.

Such a law violates the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 14 Amendments. Putting the Constitution through a paper shredder will not stop mass murderers.

Perhaps we should also have the government review social media posts to determine who should have the right to free speech? If your posts are too stupid and unconstitutional perhaps you shouldn’t be granted the right to speak?

It’s a dystopian and authoritarian proposal.
So of course I’m not surprised to see today’s left embrace it.

I’m too exhausted to be shocked by this… because I’m not. This is all par for the course.
