Ever since he took office, Barack Hussein Obama has been on a mission to destroy the Second Amendment in this country. Knowing that this is his final year in office, Obama is stepping up his game to take guns from the American people, and he’s starting with Social Security recipients.
The president is trying to do this quietly so that Americans won’t have time to fight back, but we aren’t going to let him get away with it…
Now the Los Angeles Times has reported that Obama wants to keep Social Securityrecipients from owning guns. Specifically, those who have their monthly disability checks handled by others would be unable to purchase firearms, just like drug addicts, felons and illegal aliens.
People who are “unable to manage their affairs” are those who have been defined by the government to have “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition or disease.” Consequently, the expanded gun ban could affect about 4.2 million individuals receiving Social Security checks.
Opponents of this latest plan believe that expanding gun control by preventing people from owning firearms based on financial competence doesn’t make sense (H/T Fox News). This means, if you are not good in math or have trouble balancing your checkbook, well, then … no gun for you.
Yet Dr. Marc Rosen, a Yale psychiatrist said, “Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe. They are very different determinations.”
Rosen is also fearful that some veterans may avoid seeking help for mental health problems if they know they may have to give up their guns.
This new proposal, if implemented, would especially affect veterans such as Steven Overman, 30, a Marine who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and compromised memory and cognitive ability. The Veterans administration classified Overman 100 percent disabled. Overman let his wife handle his Social Security income. Overman would not be able to own a gun. Nevertheless, Overman can still operate firearms competently for target shooting and hunting in rural Wisconsin.
“I didn’t know the VA could take away your guns,” he said.
The Obama administration’s lack of transparency regarding this proposal has been par for the course. The National Rife Association (NRA) wasn’t initially aware of the plan. Once the NRA caught wind of this proposal, their chief lobbyist, Chris W. Cox, said, “If the Obama administration attempts to deny millions of law-abiding citizens their constitutional rights by executive fiat, the NRA stands ready to pursue all available avenues to stop them in their tracks.”
