Gun Ban Officially Removed from Federal Code

on

Again we have discovered Barack Obama’s evil intentions on another important issue in America.

The Social Security gun ban he enforced was only targeted at “vulnerable” citizens, not the dangerous individuals causing havoc.

Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science prof. Jeffrey Swanson points out the ban walks over our very own due process rights. He believes it is a serious heinous crime to go after the “vulnerable group or beneficiaries” because they have a mental problem that needs professional help.

He wrote that the ban “[takes] away the gun rights of a large category of individuals without any evidence that they pose a risk of harm to self or others.”

According to breitbart,

On May 18 the Social Security Administration (SSA) announced that it officially removed the Social Security gun ban from the federal code.

The Social Security gun ban allowed the SSA to strip certain recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process. It did this by allowing the SSA to investigate beneficiaries who required help managing finances and were subject to a broad mental health moniker. The moniker covered everything from treatable, sometimes temporary issues like anxiety and depression to major issues like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

In light of the breadth of the mental health moniker, Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science professor Jeffrey Swanson observed that Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban targeted the “vulnerable” rather than the dangerous. The Washington Post quoted Swanson’s explanation that the ban “[takes] away the gun rights of a large category of individuals without any evidence that they pose a risk of harm to self or others.”

So, a group that was vulnerable rather than dangerous was the target of the gun ban, and those whom the SSA singled out were liable to lose their Second Amendment rights without due process. This would occur when the SSA turned gave names of Social Security beneficiaries to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System (NICS), thus barring those beneficiaries from buying guns.

On February 2 the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted to repeal the ban. On February 15 the GOP-controlled Senate voted to repeal the ban. And on February 28 President Trump signed the repeal.



On May 18 the SSA’s announced:

We are removing from the Code of Federal Regulations the final rules, Implementation of the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 (NIAA), published on December 19, 2016. We are doing so because Congress passed, and the President signed, a joint resolution of disapproval of the final rules under the Congressional Review Act.
