Democrats' loathing of the Second Amendment is directly tied to the party's loathing of individuality, freedom, and personal liberty. Why else would they spend so much time trying to figure out new and improved ways of restricting Americans' right to keep and bear arms?
The latest Democrat gun control scheme involves the Left-wing tech-media giants, as reported by CBS Chicago: Specifically, the party of the donkey wants to use a person's social media history to deny them the right to buy and own guns. As much as the tech giants despise conservatives and the Second Amendment, what could go wrong?
Like other Leftist Democrats in Congress and in state legislatures around the country, anti-gunners in Illinois are attempting to use the Parkland, Fla., shootings as the impetus to further punish law-abiding gun owners with onerous new rules that won't be any more effective than the myriad of gun control statutes already on the books, critics note.
CBS Chicago reports:
Before Nicholas Cruz killed 17 people at Florida's Parkland High School last year he posted images of guns, bullets and a dead frog on Instagram. And before former Marine Ian David Long gunned down 12 last year at a California bar he posted on Facebook, "I hope people call me insane."
"This is something my community is demanding action on," Rep. Daniel Didech (D-Buffalo Grove) said, adding that's why he is proposing that all gun buyers be forced to reveal their social media counts to police before they can then be 'approved' for a government-issued firearms license.
"A lot of people who are having mental health issues will often post on their social media pages that they're about to hurt themselves or others," Didech said, according to the local CBS affiliate. "We need to give those people the help they need."
It should be noted that Cruz was crying out for help, but nobody was listening. The Miami Herald reported in November that one of his classmates told police a year before the shootings that Cruz had "mused" about it.
