When serving as Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel believed in the adage that you should never let a serious crisis go to waste; and even though Rahm has moved on to the city of Chicago where he is destroying the Windy City as its mayor, the White House still practices the “serious crisis” philosophy when making policies that would normally meet with great resistance from the voting public as we see in this latest example.
With a nuclear Iran now official, Obama is busy preparing to take advantage of their self-made crisis with a new plan to block millions of seniors from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. According to The Los Angeles Times, Obama has targeted some 4.2 million Social Security recipients who use a fiduciary (a third-party) to handle their monthly benefits, looking to prohibit those who have been found incompetent to manage their own financial affairs from owning guns.
The figure breaks down to about 2.7 million people with mental health problems—“a potentially higher risk category for gun ownership”—and 1.5 million who have their finances manage by others “for a variety of reasons.”
Heck, if ability to manage finances becomes a criteria, wouldn’t that disqualify Congress and the White House from ever owning a gun? But seriously, someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous; my wife’s inability to balance her checkbook is proof of that.
What we are really witnessing is the “one-size-fits-all” approach so typical of big government liberals; the same big government attitude that brought us such stellar programs as Obamacare.
Actually, this latest attempt by Obama to disarm America has a lot in common with Barry’s healthcare law:
- Obamacare denies healthcare to seniors
- Obama’s gun plan denies the 2nd Amendment to seniors.
And here’s another similarity:
- After destroying healthcare for seniors, Obamacare went on to destroy healthcare for every American.
- After destroying the 2nd Amendment for seniors, Obama will destroy it for every American.
It began in 2009…
The transformation continues in 2015…
