Ronald Reagan made this statement as the most feared words you ever want to
hear from your government, and he was so right. Let me give you another example
as to how they are here to help us.
I am a member or the NRA and in the October issue of The American Rifleman
is a very interesting article involving many of us our friends and relatives. I
had heard about this before but after reading the article it becomes more clear
as to how they want to help us.
The article states that if you are a veteran and/or collect Social Security
you are in the crosshairs of the Federal Government. The Dept. of Veterans
Affairs along with the Social Security Adm. has created a background checking
system and reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension
or disability payments and has assigned as fiduciary, someone to handle you
financial affairs for whatever reason. This information is forwarded to the FBI
National Instant Criminal Background Check System better know as NICS.
In the article it explains how it works. It states “they can assign a
“representative payee” to receive a beneficiary’s benefits either at the request
of a beneficiary or at the initiation of the agency itself or someone that knows
the beneficiary. According to a former SSA employee, this process typically
takes place voluntarily at the behest of the beneficiary or a loved one and if
often for the sake of convenience.”
For instance, “elderly individuals may choose this option if they no longer
drive, live far from a population center or have physical difficulty traveling
to a post office or bank. The assignment of a representative payee is typically
perfunctory bureaucratic procedure offering no evidence that the person of
diminished mental capacity whatsoever and it certainly does not rise to the
level of “adjudication” as required by statue. For those assigned a
representative payee, this program will automatically assign them
prohibited-person status and forward their name to NICS, with no due process or
finding of dangerousness.”
The next statement is very troubling to me and should be to anyone who is
thinking about helping someone. “To SSA once you’ve been assigned a
representative payee you’re in the same category as a violent felon and other
prohibited persons and should be stripped or your Second Amendment protected
All of this was accomplished by your president and by Executive Order. He
has a pen and a phone and that is all he needs.
The article gives more information and numbers of people that are affected
by this giant gun-grabbing move by our government, who by the way wants to help
us, but I think you get the jest of what is going on.
US Sen. John Cornyn, of our great state, has introduced a bill that
provides some protection against the Obama administration’s bureaucratic
overreach. If you want to look at the bill it is under S2002, Title 3 Sec.
301-302-304 and 305.
Now, don’t you feel better because they are going to help us….I don’t think
GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMMERICA
