On Monday, Obama’s White House released a four-page factsheet that previewed the executive action he is set to announce today. One particular section of this factsheet has many American patriots particularly disturbed…
According to Young Conservatives, one aspect of Obama’s new gun controls is the inclusion of “information from the Social Security Administration in the background check system about beneficiaries who are prohibited from possessing a firearm.”
This effectively means that Obama is now going to ban certain Social Security recipients from buying firearms.
The White House Executive Order Preview stated:
“Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to NICS. The reporting that SSA, in consultation with the Department of Justice, is expected to require will cover appropriate records of the approximately 75,000 people each year who have a documented mental health issue, receive disability benefits, and are unable to manage those benefits because of their mental impairment, or who have been found by a state or federal court to be legally incompetent. The rulemaking will also provide a mechanism for people to seek relief from the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm for reasons related to mental health.”
It’s sickening that many Social Security recipients will now be stripped of their Second Amendment rights. SHARE if you think this is WRONG!
