Today is Christmas Eve, a time to celebrate Christ’s birth, remember his death, spend time with family and friends, and yes, even make some last minute gift purchases.
But today also marks a different occasion: the Obama administration has officially announced they have begun drafting disarmament letters for Social Security beneficiaries. That is Obama’s Christmas gift to you: a gun ban.
For months, we have been warning about Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. With just weeks left in his Presidency, he actually had the gall to finalize his plan.
Starting next week, anyone who receives Social Security and has also assigned a family member or friend as a “representative payee” will automatically be prohibited from owning firearms.
We are talking about hundreds of thousands of people being disarmed if this executive order is kept in place.
It’s not as simple as having Trump repeal this order. It is going to take an act of Congress to get this done.
Plenty of Social Security beneficiaries decide to assign representative or designated payees for perfectly normal reasons.
Some people reach the age when they are no longer comfortable driving and need a family member or friend to deposit their benefits checks or pick up their prescription at the pharmacy. Others simply have a hard time paying bills on time and need a little help sticking to the schedule.
What Barack Obama just did is officially declare that because these people need help managing their finances, they are "mentally defective" with “sub-human intelligence” and can no longer be trusted with firearms.
In the first year, this program plans on disarming between 75,000 and 100,000 beneficiaries. That’s not my estimate, that’s the Social Security Administration’s own quota…
They will start with people who have concealed carry permits, hunting licenses, or have registered their firearms. Many elderly Americans will go to the gun shop to make a purchase and will be denied during the background check process, triggering law enforcement to make a home inspection to look for any other guns.
We are talking about hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans being disarmed. All because of Barack Obama…
I always tell the story of Eddie Frank Smith, a 69-year-old wheelchair-bound Vietnam Veteran who heard someone breaking into his Georgia home earlier this summer.
Being disabled and bound to a wheelchair, Smith grabbed his pistol before investigating the sound. The intruder lunged at Smith from the shadows and he was luckily able to get a single shot off.
The home invader fled the house but ultimately died before even reaching the end of the driveway.
Being wheelchair-bound, there is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Smith has someone assigned to help him with finances. If that is the case, this Obama executive order will disarm him.
That is not hyperbole. If this executive order is implemented, the next time someone tries to break into Mr. Smith’s home, he will be powerless to defend himself…
This is what is at stake. The NRA just confirmed all of this. No, this is not hyperbole.
Trump can’t undo this. It will take an act of Congress. Luckily, the Social Security Beneficiary Second Amendment Rights Protection Act has already been filed. It would completely undo Barack Obama’s executive order. The good news is that it has more than 150 co-sponsors.
With your help, we will not stop until this legislation is passed. Starting after the Christmas holiday, elderly Americans will begin receiving their notices in the mail.
I refuse to stand by while Obama goes after gun owers and I hope you will join me in fighting back!
Stand and fight!
