Tucker Carlson and New York Sen. Kevin Parker debated a bill proposed by the BrookDemocrat that would call for a social media check by the government for anyone in the state applying for a gun license.
Parker's bill would allow the New York State Police to investigate "for certain posts and/or searches over a period of 1-3 years prior to the approval of such application or renewal."
He said on Tuesday that his bill is all about making New York safer and wouldn't infringe on the rights of the state's residents.
"Why restrict it to gun owners?," he asked. "Why shouldn't I have the password to your social media accounts so we can assess whether you should be wielding the power that you do? ... Would you send me your passwords?"
