Obama plans to deny guns to millions of seniors
Jul 20 15
Big Brother is everywhere, and now federal databases could cost seniors their guns. And that's just one of the problems from Big Brother's Big Data.
Behind the scenes, the Social Security Administration is preparing to add millions of seniors to the FBI's list of people disqualified from owning a gun.
These are seniors who have relatives handle their benefits and finances for them. The Los Angeles Times reports the White House claims the mental competency of such people is questionable, making them a potential threat to others.
Obama will grab any excuse to ignore the Second Amendment and establish gun control
Like the Social Security list, Obama uses other gigantic federal databases to snoop on our personal finances, and to micro-manage where we live. Bureaucrats will insist on re-zoning and other local changes wherever there is a mostly-minority population.
But housing usually reflects income, not prejudice. And wanting help with your finances does not mean you are mentally unstable.
But Big Brother is everywhere, and Obama wants him to control our lives.
