First District Congressman Jim Bridenstine said Tuesday he is cosponsoring legislation to block a portion of President Barack Obama’s gun initiative intended to include information about Social Security recipients prohibited from possessing firearms for mental health reasons in the background check system.

“The president plans to prohibit certain Social Security recipients from legally owning firearms,” Bridenstine said in a release. “In response, I will cosponsor legislation to prohibit the Social Security commissioner from turning over Social Security numbers to the Justice Department-run gun background check system.”

Congressman Bridenstine:

Today, President Obama once again usurped the legislative power of Congress by executive overreach.  The President’s gun control executive actions will infringe on the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, but do nothing to prevent gun crime and mass shootings.  I am confident that his proposals will be challenged in court and ultimately vacated. 

Obama’s new executive actions on gun control would have not prevented mass shooting tragedies from Columbine to San Bernardino. 

The executive actions broaden guidance on who must obtain a firearms license while being deliberately vague in defining who will be considered a gun dealer.  This will give federal agents undue power and make people reluctant to engage in gun transactions for fear of being selected for politically-motivated prosecution.  The actions not only violate 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bear arms but also 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Additionally, the President plans to prohibit certain Social Security recipients from legally owning firearms.  In response, I will co-sponsor legislation (H.R. 3126) to prohibit the Social Security Commissioner from turning over social security numbers to the Justice Department-run gun background check system.

Wise Men Seek Him all the Time; Wise Men Give Gifts; Wise Men Love Others

Every year, I try to write an annual letter because there are some people that I don’t see as often as I would like to and I love hearing from them and what they have been doing so I try to reciprocate. Some years it happens and other years it just doesn’t. Sometimes they go out at Thanksgiving time, other years near Christmas and sometimes they are around New Years. Looks like this one is headed for the latter zone!
