Using Social Security Information To Restrict The Rights Of Some Beneficiaries To Own Guns

Here’s an interesting development and article from the Los Angeles Times, CLICK HERE, discussing the Obama Administration’s push to use social security and social security information about elder and other beneficiary disabilities and limitations as a means to restrict people from owning guns. Putting aside whether you are pro-gun or anti-gun, I have problems with the use of that information for this purpose from a government mandated program, which information also should be private, how the government would determine that someone is incapable of owning a gun, and that the determination is made without any legal adjudication by an independent court. This effort targets the elderly, people who have been mandated to pay into the social security system, and people with disabilities including disabilities that don’t necessarily establish an inability to own a gun.
