The FBI isn't allowed to do web searches of suspects?

Washington Post:
After Orlando, Senate bill seeks to allow FBI Web searches without court order

The measure from Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr would also permanently extend the government’s right to conduct surveillance over potential “lone wolf” attackers.
Why would the FBI need a court order to do open source web searches?  Well, they can, but the law would permit them to also search the suspects "Internet browsing history, email account data and other electronic communications without a warrant in terrorism and spy cases."

The proposal will certainly raise questions about the determination of lawmakers to stop the terrorists.  It si focused on suspects and not everyone who is buying a gun.
