The New Zealand Prime Minister says he needs to change gun laws following the terror attack used with guns bought legally.

Here in the U.S. given these were white people very concerned politicians would say, "we need better mental healthcare" and not do anything.

The theory used in the lawsuit from sandy hook and gun makers could be re-purposed to go after people and sites that promote hate. It would be a slippery slope.

Just spitballing here.

We leave the first amendment as it is, but start looking into laws clamping down on the distribution of hate speech?

Twitter or Facebook leave up hate speech posts... The fines for them get exponentially larger.

Just a thought.

Probably wouldn't help all that much. For instance, the stuff Trump constantly says would not be treated as hate speech even though that kind of rhetoric is exactly the kind of thing encouraging guys like in NZ.

The problem is that there's obvious hate speech, like using racial slurs, but there's also what is effectively hate speech that just promotes hateful ideas.

And there are web hosting sites that allow various hate groups to maintain a presence world wide.

If the crazy want to stand on a corner yelling like idiots, fine.
Just remove their anonymous platforms.

Yeah. I'm not a fan of limiting speech by the government usually, but there's usually plenty else to go after. Not to mention the market itself making it not worth it for services to host that sort of content.

For several years there was much concern about Muslims being radicalized online and how "something must be done." However, we don't seem to be hearing much concern about white kids being radicalized online, despite evidence showing radicalization of white nationalists, which has resulted in terror attacks.

I'm not talking about limiting speech. I'm strictly talking about disseminating hate speech.

A person has the right to say whatever they want, but companies should not be allowed to amplify and transmit that speech.

I get that, but beyond really blatant hate speech, it quickly becomes a slippery slope.
