Obama Admin To Use Social Security To Deny Guns To Payees

From LA Times:

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.

The push is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws regulating who gets reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, which is used to prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the country illegally and others.

We all know that crazy senior citizens are the problem. This is simply to set a precedent on restricting our  civil rights even further. When we give the government the power to “take care of us” they can then do almost anything to us “for our own safety”.
