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!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
