CAN THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND SOCIAL SECURITY COEXIST? Terrified Politicians Believe One or the Other Has to Go By Aaron Zelman and Claire Wolfe In this article we argue that the coming collapse of social security is one reason politicians want to take your guns. We depict a violent scenario. The ideas expressed here are controversial. Not everyone in the pro-liberty camp, or indeed within JPFO, agrees on the details. Some readers might think we're being alarmist. Some might be confident that government will always be able to anticipate, avert, or at least soften any collapse of the social security system. Others might believe the American people would see a collapse coming and adjust themselves, however painfully, to the reality without violent outbreaks, bank closures, or martial law. Our aim is to stimulate people to think seriously about the possibilities and to work to prevent the worst from happening. Social Security seems poised to implode. Will that implosion bring down our liberties as well? Will desperate governments (who've constructed a house of cards built on "entitlements") use this as an excuse to confiscate your firearms? We invite readers to comment on any aspect of this article. Please click here to send your feedback or any ideas you have about the issues raised in the article.

This was a very interesting article. A pretty plausible scenario imo, except for the part about people going ape shit and rioting and looting because of SS collapse. The one thing that might cause me to get violent would be a SS collapse combined the the SS tax still coming out of my check.

its a plausible scenario, but it will never happen as government mind rays will numb the will of the people to fight before SS actually collapses. However, if you wear a hat fashioned out of very thin aluminum, the mind rays will be deflected.
