Dear Law Abiding Gun Owner Barack Obama understands it is the Second Amendment community that has destroyed his legacy. And now, like a rabid dog, he is lashing out in an effort to destroy as many law-abiding gun owners as possible. His most recent scheme is the SOCIAL SECURITY GUN BAN, which was formally published in the Federal Register last month. How broad will this regulation be? If you are on Social Security disability by reason of a mental health impairment, then your gun rights are gone. Period. The regulation promises to aggressively search for and take away the gun rights of Social Security Disability recipients with PTSD, ADHD, post partem depression, Alzheimer’s, etc. But understand this: Some parts of the regulation, like the definition of “adjudicated as a mental defective” in proposed CFR 421.105, are applicable to all Title II recipients, including old-age programs. Thus, under this language, if you are a senior and can’t “manage [your] own affairs,” you are specifically acknowledged by the Social Security Administration as being a “mental defective” for purposes of making you a prohibited person. And, under the NICS Amendments Improvement Act, this would impose a legal obligation on the Social Security administration to search for and turn in your name to NICS as well. So the question is: Do you trust Barack Obama? Because this regulation potentially opens a broader gun ban than it now acknowledges. And if Obama decides to extend the gun ban to seniors by “executive action,” this regulation will have put all of the procedures and definitions in place to do so. And guess what? Obama MAY argue that, if this regulation specifically acknowledges that seniors are prohibited persons, then the NICS Improvement Act will require Social Security to take their guns away.
