After a report claiming that individuals on Social Security could be prohibited from purchasing firearms the NRA and 2nd Amendment Foundation have vowed to fight to keep such a plan from going into effect.
Individuals who receive Social Security but have another party legally manage it for them would be considered a “prohibited person” under federal firearms law. This plan, if brought into effect, could affect as many as 4.2 million individuals.
The National Rifle Association has stated that it will do everything within its power to ensure that the plan is never implemented.
The Second Amendment Foundation has stated that it will file suit against the Obama administration if attempts are made to implement the plan.
