Default Obama looks to ban Social Security recipients from owning guns

The Obama administration wants to keep people collecting Social Security benefits from owning guns if it is determined they are unable to manage their own affairs, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The push, which could potentially affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others, is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws that prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the United States illegally, and others, according to the paper.

The language of federal gun laws restricts ownership to people who are unable to manage their own affairs due to "marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease” – which could potentially affect a large group within Social Security, the LA Times reported.

Many of these people may have gun collections from their past that are investments. The government must pay face value for these guns to be removed from a family's estate or it is robbery by the state.

How many of these people that they are targeting have gone on shooting sprees? Hello? Anyone? As usual, the government is trying to apply a fix to a non problem. It's all about control.

Social security recipients is a huge number. So lets declare them all incapable of taking care of themselves and confiscate all their weapons. Remember, it's for your own good and for the children.

Now I wonder who was first to make the order. Boehner or BHO. If I was a bettin' man, I'd say Boehner did it first and BHO did it to save face. But that's just my distain for BHO getting out.
