Infringed! N.Y. Gov. Hochul Requires 3 Years of Social Media History for Concealed Carry

Who’s worse? Alleged nursing home murderer and former New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, or far-left authoritarian, unelected replacement, Gov. Kathy Hochul? Trick question — they both suck in stereo.

Only a week after the Supreme Court determined that a New York law requiring people to provide “proper cause” in order to procure a concealed carry license was unconstitutional, Hochul signed legislation making handing over three years of social media activity one of the requirements for concealed carry applicants going forward.

Think China’s “social credit score” or President Joe Biden’s regime’s push to judge Americans' everyday activities by what is essentially a social credit system, otherwise known as environmental, social and governance (ESG) scores.

According to the actual legislation, one of the requirements Hochul is mandating for law-abiding gun owners is “(iv) a list of former and current social media accounts of the applicant from the past three years to confirm the information regarding the applicants character and conduct as required in subparagraph (ii) of this paragraph.”

“Subparagraph (ii)” of the legislation states that another requirement is to provide “names and contact information of no less than four character references who can attest to the applicant's good moral character and that such applicant has not engaged in any acts, or made any statements that suggest they are likely to engage in conduct that would result in harm to themselves or others.”

They also want your left arm, your first-born child as a sacrifice and the deed to your home. Okay, that’s all hyperbole, but you get the idea.

How ridiculous is it that if you want a concealed carry license in New York, you basically have to do the job the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) apparently refuses to do — provide information that could be construed as “red flags” so that particular “Alphabet Agency” doesn’t look horrible — again — when pressed on what they knew about a mass shooter before the act occurred?

Maybe if our government did the job that our tax money pays them to do, we wouldn’t have to do it for them. Then again, it is government, so expecting them to do a quick and thorough job when it comes to pretty much anything is probably asking too much.
