The Social Security Administration (SSA)has published information on the looming gun ban which was first found out at it was being fabricated behind closed doors in July 2015.
Specifics of the ban seeped out over the next few months then it formerly introduced by President Obama on January 5, 2016.
On July 18 the Los Angeles Times revealed that the ban would affect SSA beneficiaries who are ruled mentally deficient or tagged with a “mental illness” moniker. Once classified as having mental health issues the beneficiaries would be documented to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and put in to the prohibited persons list, thereafter banned from purchasing guns.
Reported by the Times, one of the measures of mental health stability would be whether beneficiaries could handle their own finances or not. Influenced by this measure alone up to “4.2 million” SSA beneficiaries were considered to be vulnerable to losing their Second Amendment rights because they have other individuals handle their finances for them.
On January 4 Breitbart News documented that Obama would be incorporating the SSA gun ban into his executive gun controls. The White House executive order preview stated:
Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to NICS. The reporting that SSA, in consultation with the Department of Justice, is expected to require will cover appropriate records of the approximately 75,000 people each year who have a documented mental health issue, receive disability benefits, and are unable to manage those benefits because of their mental impairment, or who have been found by a state or federal court to be legally incompetent. The rule-making will also provide a mechanism for people to seek relief from the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm for reasons related to mental health.
And at this point the SSA has released specifics making it apparent that beneficiaries who do not receive benefits themselves-but have them sent to someone who manages finances for them-take the chance of afoul of the SSA and being prohibited from buying guns.
On pages 19 of the SSA’s 41-page summary of the gun ban, we read:
Under our representative payee policy, unless direct payment is prohibited, we presume that an adult beneficiary is capable of managing or directing the management of benefits. However, if we have information that the beneficiary has a mental or physical impairment that prevents him or her from managing or directing the management of benefits, we will develop the issue of capability. If a beneficiary has a mental impairment, we will develop the capability issue if there is an indication that the beneficiary may lack the ability to reason properly, is disoriented, has seriously impaired judgment, or is unable to communicate with others.
Once the beneficiary has the SSA’s attention-by having someone assist with finances-the process of figuring out mental health status commences, becoming incrementally distressing. And if a ruling of mental illness satisfactory to meet the reporting threshold is handed down, then the beneficiary will be reported to NICS and forbidden from buying firearms.
