Gretchen's Take: President Obama's elderly gun grab is wrong

I find it interesting that on the same day we have members of Congress putting forth bills to allow our military personnel to be armed in military recruiting centers ... President Obama is presenting a plan to limit the ownership of guns for some of our elderly citizens.

The administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs -- but just because a son or a daughter may manage an elderly person's finances - does that automatically make them unable to have the wherewithal to own a gun?

Prohibiting gun ownership based on financial competence is wrong. Maybe some of those who no longer manage their financial affairs simply don't want to deal with the headache of balancing a checkbook or managing credit card payments. This plan is too wide reaching and discriminatory to older people who are still competent to own a gun
