The Department of veterans Affairs has begun to place severe gun restrictions on over thousands of veterans. The very men and women who protected our nation are now being disarmed by mistaken government employees. Countless are beyond upset by this notion and are pushing Congress to address the matter as soon as possible.
After the failed assassination attempt on President Reagan, Congress passed the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act. This act was passed in order to prevent a mentally ill individual from being able to commit acts of gun violence.
The VA has since used this law to determine which veterans are suitable to own a gun and which are not. This has led to thousands of veterans unable to bear arms.
Countless veterans have reached a state where they are unable to manage their financial affairs and thus have appointed fiduciaries to help them out. These fiduciaries, which is usually a family member, manage their federal benefits that they receive from the VA. There are a variety of reasons for a veteran to appoint a fiduciary.
The VA has thus made the decision that if a veteran has appointed a fiduciary then they are unable to handle a firearm.
When the VA makes this decision on behalf of a veteran, the VA does NOT conduct an investigation to see if the veteran is violent and the VA does NOT notify the veteran that their Second Amendment rights are thus being eliminated.
The VA immediately informs the federal National Instant Criminal background Check (NICS) system that the veteran is “mentally defective”.
Once a fiduciary is appointed, without a judge or a doctor to approve the notion, the veteran’s gun rights are immediately taken away.
This issue has received little public attention. Many are beginning to fear that if the VA has the false power to take away a veteran’s gun right then what else are they possibly capable of?Other Articles
