Before Barack Obama left office, he put measures in please to ban Social Security recipients from purchasing a gun if they have financial problems.
So basically, if you’re over 65, you can only buy a gun if you’re wealthy. I’m sure that’s what the founders intended.
The Omnibus is pure pork and should have been voted down. If regular people did this kind of budgeting they would be out on the street broke and homeless. Both parties suck.

The Republicans have once again let the people that put them into office, down. I can still remember the contract with America. They can now say goodbye, in November. They have just sealed their fate. If the Democrats are going to get everything they want, they might as well be in charge.

About 10 percent of all people 65 and older risked being classified as “financially incompetent” – about 4.2 million in all.
Using the Congressional Review Act, Republicans and two Democrats passed a bill overturning the regulation. But the bill did more than that. It also prevents any future president from reinstituting the ban without new legislative authorization from Congress.
Unfortunately, the spending bill passed Thursday allows the ban to be reinstituted because it reauthorizes the 2007 National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act. This act allowed government agencies, not just the courts, to determine if someone is mentally incompetent to buy or possess a gun.
House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said during testimony late Wednesday that he was “disturbed” that the bill would undo part of Republicans’ good work. But by Thursday morning, the House leadership had decided to go ahead with the measure.
Despite the name Fix-NICS, the bill is likely to cause more problems than it is worth.
I don’t remember any recent instances of “old timers with dementia” doing any mass-murders or drug-related killings, nor do I remember any “old timers on a fixed income” doing any such aggravated deeds. Come to think of it; I don’t recall any such incidents ever. But we all know what this is really about. Control. The corrupted control-freaks always try to get leverage somewhere.
The NRA needs to do something about this. I am seeing the Constitution being shredded and the end of western civilization happening right before my eyes.
The next stage of humanity will be a sorrowful sight to see.
