"Last week, the Obama administration put the finishing touches on a new policy that would deprive
recipients of disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) of their Second
Amendment rights. The administration will now characterize those citizens as 'mental defectives,'
thereby having their ability to own a firearm subject to the federal Gun Control Act.

Supplemental Security Income helps blind, disabled, and elderly people with little to no income.
Previously, it was understood that "mentally defective" referred to one's mental health. Citizens
who have been institutionalized against their will are restricted from owning a firearm. The new
definition of 'mentally defective' has nothing to do with being mentally ill."

Honestly, I hate obama and wouldn't put anything past him, but I think this is "fake news".   There are no sources provided and there is no such thing as supplement security insurance (they meant social security), which you get if you're fully disabled.   Also, if this was real, don't you think we would have been flooded with notices from the NRA (along with another request for a contribution--jeez, how many times can they ask for money?!?!?!?).

Seriously, if it's a real story...that's awful. These are people that are in the worst neighborhoods and need to be able to defend themselves. At the same time, this is also a perfect example of how a welfare state enslaves people. You are only truly free when you don't have to rely on the government. Get off the public dole and you can do what you want.

You guys do realize that SSI is federal WELFARE right ?   One has to be either over 65 or blind or have a disability severe enough that it will last at least 12 months and a person could not be trained to do another job for significant gainful activity.  (I worked over 7 years taking disability claims for the SSA which administers both the federal welfare SSI program as well as straight Social Security Disability.)  The income and resource limits to qualify for SSI are also quite strict.   I guess these SSI recipients had enough money skimmed off the top or have hidden income making themselves ineligible as well, to pay for both firearms and ammo.   Maybe Trump ought to look at cutting these funds a bit.
