Based on an estimate from the National Shooting Sports Federation, about 1 million firearms in New York State meet the law’s assault-weapon criteria, but just 44,000 have been registered. That’s a compliance rate of about 4 percent. Capanna said that the high rate of noncompliance with the law could only be interpreted as a large-scale civil disobedience, given the high level of interest and concern about the law on the part of gun owners.
Opposition to the SAFE Act has been widespread across upstate New York, where 52 of the state’s 62 counties, including Ulster, have passed resolutions opposing the law. Upstate police agencies have also demonstrated a marked lack of enthusiasm for enforcing the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines.
A new act introduced in the state assembly this month would require pistol owners to submit to a "social media review."
Anyone applying for, or renewing a pistol permit would have to give up all login information, including passwords, for any social media sites they're a part of.
Posts from the past three years on site like Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat would be reviewed for language containing slurs, racial/gender bias, threats and terrorism.
One year of search history on Google/Yahoo/Bing would also be reviewed.

I welcome the checks. Who cares? If you have nothing to hide you should have nothing to worry about.
Your membership to this conspiracy website might put you on a list of questionable citizens.
Or do you trust the governments judgement?
