Apparently, you turn over your password? That’s the gist off the conversation Tucker Carlson had with the moron who is sponsoring the bill.
Automatic disqualification, comrade. Your “social credit” score is zero.
Now join up and post glowing praise of progressive causes.
I wish they would just do away with the no-cross state border purchases. It would help to cure all of this madness.
Since more people are killed each year in auto accidents than in gun accidents and homicides, it would also be reasonable to require this for auto licensing.
exactly, funny how NY could cite ‘imminent need’ in order to ram through their ‘emergency gun laws’ to prevent death, yet there doesn’t appear to be any ‘imminent need’ to prevent death by passing auto laws
They are going after Jim Thompson!
The Democrats desperately want thought police, block wardens and social responsibility monitors.
NY State Legislators need to surrender their social media history first, along with their tax returns, and college diaries/high school calendars.
Turning over your password would work for social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where you can log into the account from anywhere. But you need the physical device to examine browser search engine histories, which are only stored on the local device's hard drive or solid state memory.
Here is the language proposed by State Senator Kevin Parker: (all caps are the changes to the law, and are part of the pdf. I'm not going to retype it just to get rid of the caps, so live with it. Bold emphasis is mine.)
"IN ORDER TO ASCERTAIN WHETHER ANY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT OR SEARCH ENGINE HISTORY OF AN APPLICANT PRESENTS ANY GOOD CAUSE FOR THE DENIAL OF A LICENSE, THE INVESTIGATING OFFICER SHALL, AFTER OBTAINING THE APPLICANT'S CONSENT PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION THREE OF THIS SECTION, AND OBTAINING ANY LOG-IN NAME, PASSWORD OR OTHER MEANS FOR ACCESSING A PERSONAL ACCOUNT, SERVICE, OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS DEVICE NECESSARY TO REVIEW SUCH APPLICANT'S SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS AND SEARCH ENGINE HISTORY, REVIEW AN APPLICANT'S SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR THE PREVIOUS THREE YEARS AND SEARCH ENGINE HISTORY FOR THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND INVESTIGATE AN APPLICANT'S POSTS OR SEARCHES RELATED TO (I) COMMONLY KNOWN PROFANE SLURS OR BIASED LANGUAGE USED TO DESCRIBE THE RACE, COLOR, NATIONAL ORIGIN, ANCESTRY, GENDER, RELIGION, RELIGIOUS PRACTICE, AGE, DISABILITY OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION OF A PERSON; (II) THREATENING THE HEALTH OR SAFETY OF ANOTHER PERSON; (III) AN ACT OF TERRORISM; OR (IV) ANY OTHER ISSUE DEEMED NECESSARY BY THE INVESTIGATING OFFICER. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SUBDIVISION, "SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS" SHALL ONLY INCLUDE FACEBOOK, SNAPCHAT, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM, AND "SEARCH ENGINE" SHALL ONLY INCLUDE GOOGLE, YAHOO AND BING."
So are you going to be required to surrender physical custody of your desktop computer, laptop computer, and smart phone to the investigator until s/he completes the required searches in the browser history?
This stupid State Senator probably hears reports after a nutjob is caught or kills themselves after a mass shooting, that the FBI found disturbing information in their search history of seized computers. This wacko of a State Senator must think that it's just as easy to look at someone browser search engine history as it is to look at their Twitter feed.
Lol Make yourself appear to be a Progressive and you’ll be fine.
Jim Thompson sounds familiar but I need help. Who is that?
Having political opinions unpopular with the liberal orthodoxy
I think they want to do this with getting on an airplane. You’re not meeting their standards and you’re considered a threat and denied a ticket.
Liberal writer thinking that is our leader, Jim Robinson. A few years back.
Wiki: "...The New York State Supreme Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in civil cases statewide and in criminal cases in New York City."
I have an idea - let those who want to purchase guns have access to the same amount of social media that those who propose the law have put out there...just to be sure they are qualified to judge.....
[[NY’s SC ain’t squat...it’s the lowest level of state court.]]
Perhaps- but i believe the SC stated that NY’s SC rule would stand- so yeah- it may be squat- but they got their unconstitutional law through- and apparently the people are not able to do anything about it-
I did have one, many years ago, but it was among the cargo never recovered from that horrible boating accident.
Come to think of it, I don't think I even know anyone who owns a computer.
Lost all my social media in an unfortunate boating accident...
Same question I had; I don’t have any tweeter, face book, or any of that other instant crap.
This site is as close to social media that I will ever get.
