Obama To Stop Social Security Recipients From Exercising Their 2nd Amendment Rights

Since he became president, Barack Obama and the Democrat Party have been on a mission to destroy the Second Amendment by taking away guns from Americans. Now they have set the wheels in motion to stop those with Social Security benefits from owning guns.

According to Conservative Tribune, under this plan, those who have their monthly disability checks handled by others will not be allowed to purchase firearms. Essentially, Social Security recipients will be placed under the same restrictions as felons and illegal aliens.

This proposed gun ban could affect about 4.2 million individuals who are labeled by the government as “unable to manage their affairs,” and are therefore defined to have “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition or disease.”

Opponents of this plan have pointed out that preventing people from buying guns based on how well they manage their finances doesn’t make sense.

“Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe,” said Dr. Marc Rosen, a Yale psychiatrist. “They are very different determinations.”

Rosen added that this ban will likely stop many veterans from seeking help for mental health issues, as they will be afraid that they will lose their Second Amendment right in doing so.

Since the Obama administration demonstrated a total lack of transparency in launching this plan, the National Rifle Association was unaware of it until very recently, and they aren’t having any of it.

“If the Obama administration attempts to deny millions of law-abiding citizens their constitutional rights by executive fiat, the NRA stands ready to pursue all available avenues to stop them in their tracks,” said Chris W. Cox, the NRA’s chief lobbyist.

  • this is yet another treasonous act by this administration, this must be stopped and prosecute to the fullest degree of the law

  • Anyone smell a thunderstorm a comin'? Damn! I was prayin' for some lightnin' to strike down our O-r-e-o in the Black House, The Rainbow House, The Party House, anything but the White House--that's too politically correct, he'd be doing his duty as a president.

  • I disagreed with so called President Obama. he's not my President .Gun saves lives If the intruder or more broke in the house How can i protect my family from those intruders since we live in a small town, the nearest police is 7 miles away. No way we give up our guns. because He want to take it away from us. I denounce that Jackass.

  • I guess I'm the eternal pessimist.I have seen how Hitler came to power and all the things he did to take the guns from the people,especially the Jews.I believe that Obama personally has built up his own popularity base which is above any so called polls that the news media posts.People foolishly talk of impeachment which would of course result in the riots he needs to declare martial law.He has people so divided along every line possible,race,religion,age,citizens,illegals,and on and on it goes.I have come to the conclusion that America is in its final days and it's just a matter of time for the collapse to happen.He and his "wife" spend tax payer money as if it is their personal bank account.He isn't in Kenya for some sentimental reason I believe his next step will be to start importing radicals from there also.

  • Obama should be concentrating on "Mental Health Reform" rather than stomping on the Constitutional rights of the American people!! GUNS CAN'T KILL WITHOUT A LITTLE HELP - BUT MENTAL ILLNESS CAN! Get your priorities in order, Obama!!! AND, leave the Senior Citizens alone!!! WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A SENIOR CITIZEN SHOT A GUN INTO A CROWD????
