THIS TIME HE’S GOING AFTER SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFICIARIES …
|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama‘s administration is attempting to prevent up to 2.4 million recipients of Social Security benefits from owning guns.
The move – reported on by The Los Angeles Times – would deny Second Amendment rights to Social Security beneficiaries whose accounts are managed by others due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.”
According to the Times, though, “there is no simple way to identify that group.” As a result, Obama’s gun-snatchers are interpreting it as broadly as possible, seeking to deny firearm ownership to “anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and assigned a fiduciary.”
“When the Obama administration can’t get its way by attacking gun owners head on, it merely turns to extorting the elderly and disabled whom it holds hostage via their need to receive Social Security benefits – benefits I might add, that are owed to them,” noted Brandon Turbeville over at Activist Post.
Obama’s latest gun grab comes on the heels of two mass shootings: One in Charleston, S.C. (perpetrated by a 21-year-old white supremacist) and another in Chattanooga, Tennessee (perpetrated by a 24-year-old Muslim suffering from depression).
Why either of those incidents would prompt a gun grab from older Americans is beyond us …
This website has consistently called out Obama’s anti-Second Amendment machinations.
Why? Because as much as liberals hate to admit it, guns save lives. Like it or not, more guns = less crime.
