President Obama Against Guns From The Beginning

posted on July 31, 2015

Last week, President Barack Obama told the BBC that his biggest presidential frustration has been his inability to pass major gun control legislation.

However, the President’s gun policies already negatively affect thousands, such as veterans who require a representative payee to manage their VA benefits. By classifying them as mentally incompetent, they are reported to the federal background check system as “prohibited persons”—and as many as 4.2 million Social Security recipients are next. 

In a recent PoliZette piece, John Lott Jr., a former colleague of the president at the University of Chicago Law School, recalled a 1996 conversation with Obama, who stated, “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”

Obama’s latest statement to the BBC raises the question: How far would he go on gun control? The answer is all the way, and Social Security recipients are just the next target in his plan to annihilate our Second Amendment rights.
