Right before Christmas, when no one was paying attention, the Obama Administration put a “Social Security Gun Ban” into effect, robbing tens of thousands of American senior citizens of the right to selfdefense.
The ban focuses on any Social Security recipient who needs help managing their finances. Apparently, to the Obama administration, if a senior citizen needs some help making sense of their finances, like millions of middle-aged Americans do, they’re considered anything from “subnormal intelligence or mental illness” to “incompetency,” an unspecified “condition,” or “disease.”
It’s nothing but a way for Obama to begin taking away 2nd Amendment rights under the guise of “helping” people who supposedly need it.
What’s most frightening about this type of gun ban is the fact that there is ZERO oversight – the federal government is the judge and jury in every case, determining unilaterally, often with no evidence, that someone is incapable of owning a firearm.
The moment a Social Security beneficiary asks for a little assistance with their finances, the process for determining “mental health status” begins, and incrementally becomes more intrusive into Senior Citizens lives as the process goes along.
And if, or more appropriately when, a “ruling” of mental illness sufficient to meet the reporting threshold is handed down, unilaterally by the people who enacted the measures, the beneficiary is immediately reported and prohibited from purchasing firearms from that day forward.
No questions asked.
This is nothing but Obama’s last ditch effort to enact his radical liberal gun agenda on innocent, law abiding Americans who are the most vulnerable among us.
It’s sickening and despicable.
