Maybe they signed up for Iraq in a fit of patriotism to defend our country and then got their ass bombed or some other thing and now are disabled. Maybe they were a fire fighter and then went and helped to save people from the world trade towers and then breathe the terrible air and then got disabled.
People become disabled, not everyone was born disabled. It's people like you that cause people who do get disabled to feel ashamed because they no longer contribute to society.
1) you can thank congress, Obama has tried and he's still trying to close Gitmo, but apparently, senators think muslims who have been tortured are some kind of super villain and will lay waste if they end up in a normal prison. Conservative senators are the biggest fraidy cats.. they are all bluster.
2) We only assisted with non-military aid on a number of conflicts, and we put no troops on the ground. I think the only significant event that we bombed was Libya. Even with ISIS we've reacted with restraint. Compare that to the last guy in office.
3) Obama has never ran on a campaign of taking guns away from people. In fact, he allowed guns in federal parks so you got a little more freedom. What he is incensed about is school shooting, and you should be too. A middle school filled with young children was shot up with many young children killed and the nation has done nothing about it. If we can't even take action when our children die, don't expect anything on guns to happen soon. Luckily, video games are removing the need for the upcoming generations to have guns. Over time, nobody is going to give two shits about guns except old codgers and hunters.
4) Moves or made. Perhaps you've forgotten that there is a very hostile conservative congress who do nothing but put obstacles up. Even balancing the fucking budget is political football.
This shows a fundamental misunderstanding.. yeah, you damn right they are going to purchase those things. Because their life SUCKS. All of those are all ways to escape, just for a little bit a life of poverty. Is it unwise? Yes. Is it completely asinine thing to do? Yeah. But there you have it. They didn't have the privileges that you and I had and it takes an enormous amount of discipline to get out of something like that.
So can the judgement and at least try to understand these people's lives are extremely stressful.
