Obama’s Deceptive Plan Uses Social Security To Confiscate Guns
The Obama administration’s latest attempt to strengthen gun-control laws- this time with the help of the Social Security system- appears to be another attempt to disarm law-abiding Americans.
President Obama wants people who’re unable to financially manage their own affairs reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System by the Social Security Administration which prevents gun sales to felons, drug abusers, illegal immigrants and others.
Alan Gottlieb- an Army veteran, and founder and Executive Vice President of the Second Amendment Foundation, said, “The Obama administration wants to equate some Social Security recipients who own guns with felons, drug addicts and illegal immigrants. That’s not simply insulting, it’s insidious, because who knows where this could lead?”
Many are calling this another transparent and disingenuous attempt to circumvent- or violate- the Second Amendment.
Mr. Gottlieb added – “It’s unconscionable that someone who might have problems balancing a checkbook or managing their finances would suddenly find himself or herself stripped of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”
Considering the implications of such a policy if implemented, Gottlieb wondered, “What’s next? Will they take away someone’s right to vote, claiming they’re not competent?”
