Obama Finalizes Social Security Rule Banning “Mental Defectives” from Owning Guns

One of the biggest victims of President Barack Obama’s progressive agenda has been the Second Amendment, and despite the prospect of leaving office in less than a month, he has continued his attack on gun rights in recent days.
Reported by Conservative Tribune:
The Social Security Administration issued the final version of a rule on Monday that would strip tens of thousands of law-abiding citizens of 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.
Under the new rule, these recipients would be re-characterized as “mental defectives,” which would effectively force Social Security applicants with mental health problems to choose between their needed benefits and their constitutional right to own guns.
The SSA’s new rule is rife with problems, including its egregious lack of due process for those whose rights are taken away.
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.
