Obama Admin Wants To Ban Social Security Recipients The Right To Own A Firearm
Perhaps the sign outside gun stores should now read “Seniors Need Not Apply”, if this administration gets it’s way with attempting to chip away at our Second Amendment Rights or perhaps this administration can tie ObamaCare to those monthly disability Social Security checks and prevent seniors from protecting themselves with some bogus claim that they are unable to manage their own affairs. And if forcing them into second class status doesn’t work, then there’s always those rumored ‘DEATH PANELS” waiting to kick in, and eliminate them all together.
Obviously this is another attempt by this character to do an end run around our right to protect ourselves and our loved ones. The push would potentially affect the most vulnerable within our society, those millions of seniors who collect monthly disability checks and now would be classified along with felons, drug addicts, illegal immigrants, and other unsavory characters, as a potential threat.
And while no reasonable individual would ever suggest that someone who cannot manage their own affairs due to “marked subnormal intelligence, mental illness, or incompetence should be allowed to own a firearm, it seems that this administration has once again picked a “straw man” to distract from the real issues of gun violence in America…simply ask yourself how many 70-year olds you know are committing violent crimes with handguns?
If Social Security, which has never taken part in the background check system, uses the same standard as the Department of Veterans Affairs – which is the idea floated – then millions of beneficiaries could be affected, with about 4.2 million adults receiving monthly benefits that are managed by “representative payees.” In short if you forget where you put your car keys, you just may be incompetent.
However as in “everything Obama” what you see isn’t what you get, in that the sole purpose of this attempt to gut our Second Amendment and target seniors, is the same reason why Obama ignores illegal criminal aliens who commit violent crimes with handguns, seniors simply don’t fit into his narrow agenda of “transforming America”, and are a safe and easy target to exploit.
