clearly, Obama never taught constitutional law

The Los Angeles Times reports Obama's trained flying monkeys now want to add any Social  Security recipient to the firearm prohibited list who has a "representative  payee," on the theory that if you can't manage your money, you cannot be trusted with a gun.  While there are certainly some SS Disability recipients in that category (because of mental illness), there are many who are not.  Obama needs to read the discussion of strict scrutiny and "narrowly tailored" in any law textbook.

Of course, while this proposal might prevent some mentally ill persons from obtaining guns, it won't do anything for mentally ill persons, using other weapons.  Heaven forbid we do something about our intentionally broken mental health system.

Obama may very well understand strict scrutiny.

He just doesn't care. On the progressive side, all that counts is results. It doesn't matter if you break the rules. It doesn't matter if innocents get hurt.
