In the 8 years of his presidency, Obama has made an enormous amount of destructive ideas which reflected his incapable ruling. In his repetitive attempts to peddle his liberal agenda onto Americans he has continuously assaulted the Second Amendment. Now, within days left in the office, he is making sure he will go down with a bang as he reaffirmed the title of the worst president in the American history. His latest ridiculous decision is to take away Americans’ rights to bear arms, reports US Herald.
The Social Security Administration issued the final version of a rule that would deny tens of thousands of law-abiding citizens their gun rights because of their receipt of disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income, according to the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action.
This new rule considers these recipients as “mental defectives,” forcing Social Security applicants with mental health problems to choose between their needed benefits and their constitutional right to own guns.
Not only does the rule not consider the individual’s propensity for violence as a necessary condition to stripping his or her fundamental right to own guns, but the rule also does not provide its subjects the ability to defend their suitability to possess firearms before the actual loss of rights takes place. The question that determines the applicant’s ability to own firearms is whether or not the individual has any sort of mental condition and whether he is responsible in handling money. It’s simply ridiculous to involve someone’s financial managing into the decision of giving them the constitutional law to bear arms.
And the individuals have no chance to defend their rights before the decision takes place. Only after the SSA has stripped away those rights, the beneficiaries can file a petition for ‘restoration’ of the rights. They must also prove that their possession of firearms is not harmful for the public safety or interest.
The SSA’s response to thousands of submitted concerns regarding this rule was: “We are not attempting to imply a connection between mental illness and a propensity for violence, particularly gun violence.”
This means that the government can simply strip someone of his right to bear arms without the need to prove their mental condition, but the applicant, in order to ‘restore’ the lost rights must show that he’s capable of managing his finances?! And not only the effort and the time lost, but also the expense the applicants must bear to get their psychological and medical evaluations must be taken in consideration. Regarding this, the administration claims it’s ‘reasonable’, not even mentioning that it may not be affordable, especially because the people who have to prove all this are recipients of government benefits to begin with.
Luckily, this is one of Obama’s final attempts of causing chaos and tensions, since his days in office are numbered. Very soon he will have to make room for the new administration that actually cares for the rights of the American people. Go away, Obama, and take your idiotic rules with you!
