Barack Obama’s gun control policy, aimed at preventing the mentally ill from obtaining firearms, was so wacky that even liberals can’t defend it.
Just look at a rule of his that tried to keep guns from the supposedly mentally-ill elderly. I use the word “supposedly, because under the rule, Social Security recipients with psychiatric disabilities who are assigned a money manager for their disability benefits, would be reported to the FBI’s background check database, thus making them ineligible to own a firearm.
If being bad with money disqualifies one from owning a firearm, I can think of a heck of a lot more people who shouldn’t be able to own one. Luckily, there isn’t a “unless you blow with money” provision in the Second Amendment.
Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted to scrap a regulation put in place by the Obama administration requiring a background check for Social Security recipients mentally incapable of managing their own affairs.
Today, the Senate voted 57 to 43 to eliminate the regulation. Independent Sen. Angus King (ME) and Democratic Sens. Joe Donnelly (IN), Joe Manchin (WV), Jon Tester (MT) and Heidi Heitkamp (ND) voted with Republicans.
H/T Bearing Arms
Sen. Chuck Grassley explained in a lengthy statement, all the problems with Obama’s gun regulations affecting Social Security recipients.
Such petty regulations are a reminder that liberals aren’t going to push for gun control by outlawing them and rounding up the nation’s firearms. What it will be, is death by a thousand cuts, as each additional regulation further encroaches on our Second Amendment freedoms – and that’s why we have to stand against EVERY proposed gun control policy.
