Obama Targets 4.2 Million in Massive Gun Grab
Since being elected, we have been told Obama is not coming after our guns. Recent reports indicate the administration is currently targeting Social Security recipients- some 4.2 million of them- in a new gun control measure.
Seeking tighter controls over firearm purchases, the Obama administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, a move that could affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by 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.”
“Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe,” said Dr. Marc Rosen, a Yale psychiatrist who has studied how veterans with mental health problems manage their money. “They are very different determinations.”
Essentially what this boils down to is a concentrated effort to target the largest segment of the population who are in some way dependent on the government for some form of financial support. It seems to be essentially a blackmail scheme… give your rights up, or forfeit any additional financial help from us.
Just when you think they can’t stoop much lower, this administration drops to new depths.
