Obama will try to control guns any way he can. This is another back door to take guns from private ownership. This is more of the continuous attack on the Second Amendment. He is now going after retired folks on Social Security….
This is obscene, unethical and unconstitutional in the extreme. This is definitely one of the most evil and despicable moves I have seen to date. Basically, it comes down to this, either you can have your Social Security, which you have paid into your whole life, or you can have your guns. The day after a massacre in Chattanooga, Tennessee is committed by a radical Islamist, where four Marines and a Navy officer are gunned down, Obama made this move. The timing is not a coincidence. This will effect 4.2 million Americans. If they deem you of “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease,” they will come after your weapons. And this is an issue that the NRA bought into years ago and I warned about. Allowing a carve out for mental illness has allowed the eradication of our Constitutional rights. Those are very, very vague definitions and will be used as fodder against us, trust me. The ban also covers anyone who has their finances handled by other members of their family if they are on Social Security. Have you had enough yet? Because, I know I have.
From Mad World News:
While America was distracted with the attack on helpless victims who were not allowed to be armed at their military recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, President Obama made a move to take guns away from more lawful citizens.
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.
This approach by the Obama administration is the swiftest way for them to take away gun rights from the most people in one swoop, not to mention they’re financially holding them hostage for their firearms. If this move goes through, the most susceptible group of citizens to crime, who are also reliant on the government for they’re monthly checks, will lose their benefits if they don’t relinquish their right to bear arms. The fact that the chance of recourse is slim to none, makes it all the more enticing for the administration.
Obama is going after the largest segment of the population – retiring baby boomers. He’s using a tactic that was used by Hitler in Nazi Germany and by communists in the Soviet Union. It’s the use of psychiatry as a soft enforcement arm of the federal government. The Nazis began a huge propaganda campaign against mentally and physically disabled Germans. They did not fit into the Nazi stereotype of the pure Aryan, that is physically fit with an obedient mind to serve the Reich. In addition, they were viewed as a burden on society, as they were unable to work and drained resources from the state. Sound familiar? Now, Obama is making similar moves against the retired and elderly. You can either starve or be a casualty of crime in Obama’s new and improved regime. Either way, the feds win. Either you die off saving them money and resources or you are disarmed and stand a good chance of being eliminated by criminals sanctioned by the State. This is massive extortion against Americans, attempting to force them into relinquishing their Second Amendment rights and into giving up their guns. To this I say,“Aw, nuts!”
