More Gun Control? Social Security Proposes Plan to Keep Guns Out of the Hands of the Mentally Ill


The Social Security Administration unveiled a proposal Wednesday to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

The move would bring together data gathered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) about the mental soundness of beneficiaries with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). SSA would report information on mentally impaired beneficiaries to the Justice Department four times a year to include in the NICS.

The plan “would identify, on a prospective basis, individuals who receive Disability Insurance benefits” or who “meet certain other criteria, including an award of benefits based on a finding that the individual’s mental impairment meets or medically equals” certain legal requirements. These people’s names would be provided to the Justice Department on a quarterly basis for their inclusion in the NICS — and any individuals named would be so informed of the possible prohibitions against them owning guns.

The Washington Times writes:

Some of the mental conditions the SSA screens for include schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, personality disorders, intellectual disabilities, anxiety-related disorders, substance addiction disorders and autistic disorders, The Hill reported.

The SSA said the proposal could affect as many as 75,000 individuals a year.

The move is part of a gun-control effort by the Obama administration following the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

NRA’s lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action, once called the plan “the largest gun grab in American history” and an “egregious case of bureaucratic overreach.”
