In one of the most disturbing moves for gun control this administration has tried yet, Obamas ilk in Washington are poised to strike down the 2nd amendment rights of some 4.2 million Americans. If Obama gets his way, gun ownership will be determined illegal for 4.2 million social security recipients because they dont manage their own paperwork to receive the benefits.
I kid you not.
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.
A potentially large group within Social Security are people who, in the language of federal gun laws, are unable to manage their own affairs due to marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.
There is no simple way to identify that group, but a strategy used by the Department of Veterans Affairs since the creation of the background check system is reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and assigned a fiduciary.
If Social Security, which has never participated in the background check system, uses the same standard as the VA, millions of its beneficiaries would be affected. About 4.2 million adults receive monthly benefits that are managed by representative payees.
This is outrageous and evil. What kind of people feel they have a right to determine Americans have no 2nd Amendment rights simply because they get assistant with their paperwork?
