The VA Is Restricting Veterans’ Gun Rights Without Due Process!!!

What’s Happening

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.

“Mentally Defective”

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?

And you wonder why our vets don’t seek help at the VA – this is the very reason why – you can’t be trusted!
You lie and lie and lie to them, hook them on pills, then pull the rug out from under them by denying their claim…..force them to BEG for treatment….tell them they are broken and only the pills will help……
You damn people can’t even diagnose a TBI or PTSD and NOW YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY GOD! You got nerve that is for sure.

Yes, I agree some veterans should NOT have guns due to their illness but this is still AMERICA and we still have due process – if you want to strip them of a right they themselves fought for then do the paperwork and do it legally – this backstabbing is a slap in the face of every veteran. Maybe this is yet another way of cutting down on care and treatment for vets with PTSD/TBI? I mean if they don’t trust you to come in for care because they might loose their 2nd Amendment Rights without due process that makes the bean counters happy now doesn’t it?

Veteran’s are a captive group. Granted they are more likely to have PTSD, have issues with what they have been through, but to get their benefits, they have to show up. Anyone else that is just walking our streets, falling through the cracks, not required to be tested or helped are the biggest danger. Veterans know how to use a firearm, most of the general public does not. Yes, Veteran’s do go off the deep end and become a danger, but they are in the minority. Remove their firearms if there is definite proof they will be a danger to themselves or others. Make the medical field do the same do diligence with their patients.
