Posted on 12/10/2022 7:12:40 AM PST by rktman
House Democrats introduced a bill Tuesday known as the “Identifying Mass Shooters Act” that will direct the National Institute of Justice to collect, study and analyze online content to identify potential mass shooters before they act, according to a copy of the bill obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The bill, introduced by Democratic Maryland Rep. Kweisi Mfume along with several other Democrats, will require the director of the NIJ to create and submit a report to Congress detailing the “content patterns” of mass shooters within two years of the legislation’s enactment. The bill claims that existing oversight and accountability measures for social media platforms produce an environment that fosters hate speech, extremism, radicalization, and violence.”
The bill claims that perpetrators of mass shootings have “utilized various online channels” such as manifestos, blog posts, social media posts, and direct messages to announce their intent to commit violence. While creating the report, the director must review “linguistic patterns used by previous mass shooters” and “identify items for further study relating to the effectiveness of the best practices developed under subsection.”

Meanwhile preventive detention for pro-2A Tweets.
The Bee, right?
This is just a scheme to identify gun enthusiasts.
Oh look Nancy pulled something else out of her backside
There was a movie with this plot.
Profiling in lieu of evidence.
The end of due process.
There are profilers on this board.
They are easy to spot.
More political censorship and cancel culture…
They could have done this long ago but waited until the GOP controls the house ,LOL
What could possibly go wrong?
Why don't they just ask the FBI for a list of potential mass shooters since the FBI seems to have known something beforehand about almost all of them?
Hmmmm. NOT on social media and also not a mass killer. Weird eh? What could I be hiding? LOL! I suppose the “powers that be” look at folks that don’t care to be on social media the same way they look at someone that may wish to own firearms. Obviously crazytown!
How bout when sinators threaten SCOTUS justices.....asking for a friend.
So much for the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 14th amendments.
Maybe it’s to identify potential democrat candidates for congress. Somehow, they’ll use this to their political advantage. We’ve already suspected their profiling of potential mass shooters in the past.
Combine this unconstitutional legislation with Red Flag laws and the DemComs do not need to repeal the 2A.
Even the article makes it clear that this “Act” does zip to stop mass killings. It seems aimed at identifying more “known wolves” about which nothing will be done (except maybe some recruiting as operatives) until after they attack. I thought the FBI already excelled at that.
But studying the feasibility of uncovering potential mass shooters in advance is just a cover story for what this is really about: legalizing universal warrantless spying on American citizens. It’s Beria’s “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” for the digital age. Once this “study” sets up the infrastructure, it will be off to the races.
Kwazy should be thrown out of Congress for proposing this, though it might be a useful diagnostic. Anyone who approves of it is an existential threat to the Constitution and Freedom.
