Trump Admin Considering Social Credit Score System to Determine Who Can Buy a Gun

President Trump has done an amazing job. He has exceeded all of our expectations, and it’s hard not to be happy with his string of wins. But, he’s still human. He won’t always be right all of the time, and the issue of guns and gun control appears to be his Achilles’ heel.

To be fair, the problems might come from his staff rather than the President himself, but this is a case where the buck stops at the top.

If you haven’t heard, the Trump Administration has discussed the idea of incorporating a social credit score into red flag laws. The idea is that the government could use social media posts and the like to try and screen for potential mass shooters and prevent them from legally obtaining firearms. This sounds so left-wing it’s disturbing.

A system like this doesn’t just violate the 2nd Amendment. It violates the 6th and 14th, and possibly a handful more. Due process is just as fundamentally important as gun ownership, and the Trump Administration just aimed a slap at both.

Think about it this way. A social credit score, or any red flag law, would violate the rights of millions of Americans. If it worked perfectly, it would stop maybe a dozen crimes. That’s not an appropriate trade.

Before we pull out the pitchforks and torches and storm the White House, watch the video. It will help pinpoint the real source of the problem. It will also reinforce why these infringements can’t be tolerated.
