The news broke over the weekend - background checks for those on Social Security.
Are they looking at everyone individually, and checking their situation, before making a decision?
Of course not.
They are taking an existing category - those who need help with their finances - and making a blanket decision on their ability to handle a gun.
People are different.
Government wants to make one decision instead of multiple decisions.
It makes their life easier.
Until it makes many people unhappy - unnecessarily.
