Lame Duck Obama Goes After Lawful Gun Owners On Social Security.
"You never let a serious crisis go to waste”. Rahm Emanuel.
And so it should come as no surprise when the sudden tragic event in Chattanooga, Tennessee of 4-Marines and a Navy Petty officer gunned down by an Islamic terrorist that the issue of gun control is once again taking center stage, however this time targeting the most vulnerable members within our society, and those least able to defend themselves…the disabled and elderly.
And how will the Obama Administration target seniors or those receiving disability benefits? By going after information that is tied to Social Security beneficiaries…in short by invading the health records of seniors and attempting to sort out those they deem incompetent, or those that are unable to manage their own affairs.
The push is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws regulating who gets reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, which is used to prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the country illegally and others.
The irony of course is that while senior citizens and disabled Americans would be subjected to stringent background checks, the administration all but ignores and actually protects those who are actually committing crimes with handguns, those thousands of “illegal criminal aliens”, who purposely live in sanctuary cities and are free of government scrutiny.
Although the Social Security Administration has never been subjected to background checks in the past, this lawless intrusion by the administration would affect over 4.2 million adults now receiving monthly benefits that are managed by “representative payees”.
And while the administration attempts to once again write legislation and draft policy in secret and behind closed doors and away from public scrutiny. The National Rifle Association has just recently found out about this latest move, and issued this statement; "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."
