In his latest original video, National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke warns Americans of a new gun control measure that threatens citizens’ privacy and Second Amendment rights.

“As part of a sweeping set of gun control proposals that are currently under consideration in New York State,” Cooke begins, “a Brooklyn-based state representative named Kevin Parker has proposed a measure that, if enacted into law, would require anyone in New York applying for a handgun to hand over their social media username and password to the police.”

Members of the National Review editorial and operational teams are included under the umbrella “NR Staff.”
