Democrat officials unable to crack down on lawful gun ownership due to high court decisions are making it increasingly difficult for citizens to arm themselves.
They can’t make gun ownership illegal as they desire, so they’ll destroy your life if you dare try to protect yourself.
Applicants for a concealed carry permit must submit a list of all their social media accounts used in the past three years, according to a new gun law in New York that goes into effect Thursday.
The requirement will be part of the law’s review process after reports revealed that recent mass shooters often posted on social media prior to their shootings. The shooter at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and the shooter at a Buffalo supermarket in Buffalo, New York both posted disturbing online content prior to the shootings.
The law is needed as the country faces a “national gun violence crisis,” according to Gov. Kathy Hochul, who signed the law in July.
“The reality is that we’re in the middle of a national gun violence crisis,” Hochul said at a press conference.
Meanwhile, not Hochul nor any other Democrat is willing to admit the true nature of America’s supposed “gun violence crisis.”
If we are in fact experiencing a crisis of gun violence, it’s because gang members of certain a certain demographic are disproportionally murdering each other in the streets.
While only consisting of 13% of the U.S. population, black Americans commit more than 50% of all gun violence committed in the previous decade. Meanwhile, Democrats continue to attack law-abiding gun owners with ineffective gun control laws.
The law will also require a more in-depth background search on applicants, including in-person interviews with family members prior to approval, Hochul said. Applicants will also need to undergo 16 hours of classroom training and two hours of live-fire exercises.
The legislation also creates a statewide database for ammunition sales and license records and mandates that sellers keep records of every ammunition transaction.
The law came one week after the Supreme Court struck down an existing New York gun law that limited gun sales to those who have a “legally recognized reason for wanting to possess or carry a firearm.”
The Supreme Court decision was condemned by Hochul for striking down the gun law shortly after the shooting in Buffalo.
The new law, which raises the legal age to obtain a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21, additionally creates dozens of “sensitive” places that will ban guns, including schools, churches, subways, theaters, amusement parks, and Times Square in Manhattan, though there is still discussion over whether all of Times Square will be considered “sensitive,” according to CNN.
In other words, the state of New York will eventually give you a concealed carry permit but only after you jump through several hoops and abide by laws that prevent you from carrying your weapon practically anywhere in the city.
Make it make sense…
