    Want your 2nd amendment privilege? We need to see any social media accounts please.

    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    Facebook User Name and Password Required on Permit Apllication

    Today, social media is a vital investigative tool and we make a use of it in these background investigations in order to render a well-founded and complete recommendation on applicants to the courts.

    Give them a password... when it doesn't work, tell them you just went and changed it since it was no longer secure, but it was the password when you filled out the form :-P

    Really though, I don't see how this is legal... oh, its New York, the government there doesn't let laws or rights get in their way.

    Hehe, this wouldn't work in my case. I have the login verification turned on. They would need my phone at the same time they tried to log in (which I certainly won't give to them).

    Ask your kids how they create multiple Facebook accounts - one for the parents and one for their buddies.

    None of the eight (8) applicants who supplied Facebook information have had their accounts accessed, which I know because I am the investigating officer and the only person conducting background checks.
    I approach this duty with the greatest respect for gun owners and their rights, a perspective that is shaped by my 9-year service in the U.S. Navy and exposure to guns at a young age through my grandfather, a well-respected gunsmith. I do not take guns, gun safety or our freedoms as Americans lightly, and as Chief of Police I have a serious job to do, and I approach it with respect.’
    – Watervliet Police Chief Ronald A. Boisvert, Jr.
    The FaceBook information is so vital to the investigation of the applicant's suitability to receive a pewrmit that they have not even bothered to look at the FaceBook account of the folks who caved in and gave up that information.

    THIS FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!

    Heck; I lie on so many government accessible forms I have trouble keeping track of who I really am. Had to see a new doctor (specialist) last week and filled out the now (or soon to be) Obama accessible forms. I was a Pacific Islander between 25 and 35 years old who has never smoked or drank who's social security number was NOYFB.

    Some variation of c0p$Su(k ?

    I saw one response from the police chief that basically said, "that shouldn't have been in the application packet; it's something we use in interviews".
    So now that the public knows about it, will they stop being nosy?

    I see above I had a comment deleted...I do not believe I typed an F bomb. I have more respect than that. Are you sure?

    I guess maybe I could have...I sure don't remember it though.

    Well, I used an acronym which suggests it. It's also one which is obscure enough that kids wouldn't know what I meant, methinks.

    Oh well.

    Well, copper, I don't do Facebook, Tweeter, MySpace et al... I have a land line and a cellphone that I use to make voice calls...you do remember what a voice call, do you not? I don't do text/SMS messaging either. Have not activated my voice mail either or have a answering machine. Oh, and, how about supporting the USPS while you're at it and mail me the permit you commie pinko!
