The Social Security ban targets those most in need of self-defense: the elderly.
The reasoning behind targeting the Social Security Administration for tighter regulations is staggering.
A potentially large group within Social Security are people who, in the language of federal gun laws, are unable to manage their own affairs due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.”
If Social Security, which has never participated in the background check system, uses the same standard as the VA, millions of its beneficiaries would be affected. About 4.2 million adults receive monthly benefits that are managed by “representative payees.”
If someone has a guardian manage their pension or medical finances, by liberal logic, that person is a risk. Apparently, the elderly are a threat to public safety, and while any other sweeping generalization is bigotry, the vague notion of incompetency is more than enough reasoning to question an American citizen’s Second Amendment rights.
Mental health and disabilities advocates and experts agree the ban places a bizarre correlation between personal financial management decisions and violence.
