Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

"Obama regulation that mandated the Social Security Administration must report on mentally ill recipients and people deemed unfit to handle their own financial affairs."

There are companies that get judgements against older people to declare them unfit to look after themselves and sell all of their belongings, their home and put them in a managed care facility all with no day in court.

The Social Security Administration is not equipped to determine the mental fitness of people. If there is a court approved custodianship, that would be firmer ground to assume that a person is not fit to purchase firearms provided the person involved had been evaluated by a licensed shrink and had the chance to appear in court or submit a deposition if they were physically able to be there.
