Barack Obama is once again circumventing the legislative process in order to push his administration's unpopular leftist agenda. First, it was illegal immigration, then transgender bathrooms. This time, it's guns.
Earlier this year, the White House announced new policies for those receiving social security benefits in conjunction with the president's January 5th executive order on gun ownership. When it was released, few seemed to notice that the order allowed the administration to withhold Second Amendment rights from those who collect social security.
The move makes little logical sense. Social Security beneficiaries have never proven themselves as particularly violent or incapable of gun ownership. Instead, it seems as if this is part of Obama's larger plan to slowly and surreptitiously restrict gun ownership whenever and wherever possible.
The administration was likely hoping that this slow creep of new regulations would go unnoticed until it was too late to be repealed. Fortunately, the watchful eyes of conservative media caught them in the act.
