The sickening sound of our Second Amendment rights being taken away is here again, but this time it involves the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA wrote in a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee that it will be placing some recipients on the background check system, which efficiently would bar them from legally purchasing a firearm.
The SSA’s acting commissioner Carolyn Colvin said, “We are looking at possible implementation scenarios. However, we are not exploring any option that wouldrefer all SSA beneficiaries with representatives payees to the NICS (National Instant Background Check System). According to the freebeacon.com, the letter which came a week after the committee had requested a response from the agency, said that while SSA is considering adding some recipients to NICS, they do not plan to add every recipient who has designated another party to manage their finances.
“The Obama administration will stop at nothing to strip as many people as possible of their Second Amendment rights through executive action,” said Jennifer Baker, spokeswoman for the NRA. “We know that the Veterans Affairs Department is denying people their constitutional rights based on having a fiduciary and that the Social Security Administration is developing a similar system to enter people into the NICS system. The SSA response does not adequately address our concerns and leaves the door open for abuse. The NRA will continue to employ all means available to prevent the implementation of such a widespread injustice.”
Jennifer Baker has a point. If such grievances against our rights goes unchecked and undisputed, than the abuse of our second amendment rights will continue to taken away through devious back door attacks.
