    Social Security Administration: Gun Ban Officially Removed from Federal Code - Breitbart


    On May 18 the Social Security Administration (SSA) announced that it officially removed the Social Security gun ban from the federal code.

    The Social Security gun ban allowed the SSA to strip certain recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process. It did this by allowing the SSA to investigate beneficiaries who required help managing finances and were subject to a broad mental health moniker. The moniker covered everything from treatable, sometimes temporary issues like anxiety and depression to major issues like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.




    On February 2 the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted to repeal the ban. On February 15 the GOP-controlled Senate voted to repeal the ban. And on February 28 President Trump signed the repeal.

    From what I've read guns could be taken away under the following scenario:
    Fred Smithers is 72 year old. Matilda his wife of forty five years dies. He goes into mild depression over that. Further, she handled the family finances. So, the SSA moves to take his guns away because he can't properly handle his finances.
