If you’ve ever filed for disability with Social Security, then you might want to take a look at what Obama wants to take away from you. He isn’t done yet.
If you are a recipient of or have filed for Social Security disability, you may soon have your Second Amendment right nullified.
Back in January, Obama penned an executive order allowing the Social Security Administration (SSA) to report certain individuals to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, the database Federal Firearms Licensees use to determine whether a prospective buyer is eligible to purchase firearms.
“The reporting that SSA, in consultation with the Department of Justice, is expected to require will cover appropriate records of the approximately 75,000 people each year who have a documented mental health issue, receive disability benefits, and are unable to manage those benefits because of their mental impairment, or who have been found by a state or federal court to be legally incompetent,” a fact sheet released by the White House on January 4 states.
Acting Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin signed the rule and it was posted to the Federal Register on April 28, according to Guns.com.
The “Implementation of the NICS Improvement Amendments Act” spells out a five-step qualification process that will be used to first identify and then report selected Title II and Title XVI beneficiaries to the Department of Justice.
Americans who have filed a claim with the agency based on disability and are adjudicated as having a diagnosed Mental Disorder Listing, are over 18 but under retirement age, and receive benefits through a representative payee approved by SSA due to being incapable of managing their own payments will have their Second Amendment right stripped.
