    The social media nonsense? FFS, in several cases of crazies shooting up schools or whatever, the cops ALREADY KNEW of social media posts, and failed to follow up on them. If the cops don't have the resources to follow up on obvious problems, what makes anyone think that they'll find time to follow up on every application for a concealed carry?

    You're missing the point here. The cops won't follow up anything. Applications will simply be denied.
    In fact, if the law stands, I would bet that the next step would be that you must have an "approved" social media profile. Simply not having a bad one won't be good enough.
