Obama continues to try to “backdoor” the unconstitutional effort to remove our 2nd Amendment right to have a gun.This time he is targeting those on Social Security retirement. You have got to be kidding! If that isn’t “ageism”, discriminating against a person because of their age, I don’t know what is. What is more important is that this tyranny has to stop before all of our rights are taken from us! MB
The gun-grabbing left refuses to learn the obvious importance of self-defense, regardless of how many opportunities thugs and terrorists provide. In a sweeping move to rip weapons from 4.2 million law-abiding citizens, our country’s Commander-in-Chief flips off the Second Amendment once again. This time, he plans to disarm feeble people who could benefit from it the most — aging Americans.
The LA Times reported Saturday that Obama is “seeking tighter controls over firearm purchase by banning Social Security beneficiaries from owing guns,” if it’s determined by loose measures that they are mentally incapable of managing their own business. This would apply to all elderly people who has certain affairs taken care of for them, which could affect millions of some of the most vulnerable citizens in the U.S.
These victims of Obama’s anti-Second Amendment agenda aren’t drug addicts, convicted felons, or illegal aliens. They are people who worked and paid into the system for years, and now in the twilight of their lives they could be ripped of their right to protect themselves from intruders who target the elderly. There are many reasons why a friend, family member, or hired caretaker may be given fiduciary responsibility over an older person, but that wouldn’t be taken into account when it comes to taking away guns from people who need them.
The convoluted legal language on the proposed restriction simply indicates that it would apply to a broad spectrum of Social Security claimants, including anyone with “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.” But by their own admission, they acknowledged that there is no easy way to identify who qualifies as part of that group, other than a “strategy” used by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, and we’ve all come to learn how ineffective that organization is. In addition, if they don’t give their guns up, they can say goodbye to their benefits!
