Accuracy in Media

It’s a bit tricky to explain, but here’s what the Free Beacon reported:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) said in a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee that it plans to add some recipients to the federal gun background check system, effectively barring them from legally purchasing firearms.

The letter was in response to the committee’s concern over a Los Angeles Times report that Social Security was planning to add millions of beneficiaries, those who have designated somebody else to manage their finances, to the National Instant Background Check System (NICS). The letter, which came a week after the committee had requested a response from the agency, said that while SSA is considering adding some recipients to NICS, they do not plan to add every recipient who has designated another party to manage their finances.
