Obama Gun Grab on Social Security Recipients Part of Long-Term Citizen Disarmament End Game

(excerpts from David Codrea's newest article at Oath Keepers)
"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 Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. "There is no simple way to identify that group, but a strategy used by the Department of Veterans Affairs since the creation of the background check system is reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and assigned a fiduciary.

"About 4.2 million adults receive monthly benefits that are managed by 'representative payees,'" The Times notes.

The move to disarm veterans is one Gun Owners of America has taken point on issuing warnings against.

"For nearly twenty years, GOA has been telling you about the anti-gun atrocities being performed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Justice Department against law-abiding veterans," the group explains. "When a veteran, as a result of a traumatic experience abroad, seeks disability benefits and/or counseling, VA moves to appoint a guardian to manage his financial affairs. Under illegitimate Clinton interpretations by ATF, this 'inability to handle his financial affairs' would make the veteran 'mentally defective' under 18 U.S.C. 922 (g) (4), and hence legally barred from owning a gun or ammunition."

The above is just a teaser from David Codrea's article at Oath Keepers.
