Why would the VA want our Veterans disarmed? Are they afraid the Vets are pissed off about the horrific treatment they receive? Could it be that Obama’s ‘gun control’ agenda has failed and this is his way of achieving his gun grab through the backdoor?
Most of the doctors doing this at the VA, if you look, are not trained in psychology. They are doing it because they received a ‘directive’ to do it from the top. The progressives fear and loath veterans as they’ve taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution against ALL enemies BOTH foreign AND domestic. In order to negate this perceived threat to them, they’re using the VA as a vehicle to disarm vets as many use the VA for medical services.
First, let’s just get out of the way the real problem here so we can see clearly. No authority has ever been given to the federal government to restrict any arms in any way. In fact, the Second Amendment is quite clear that “the rights of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” That doesn’t mean a little bit and it doesn’t mean the federal government can lawfully ban citizens from any arms. It means when they do such things they are traitors to the Constitution and the people and are in violation of the law they are entrusted to uphold.
With that out of the way, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley (R-IA) wrote a letter to Holder expressing his concern that the VA has been classifying our veterans as “mentally defective” and banning them from purchasing guns based on an unconstitutional federal background check.
In the four page letter, Grassley wrote, “The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is effectively a national gun ban list and placement on the list precludes the ownership and possession of firearms. According to the Congressional Research Service, as of June 1, 2012, 99.3% of all names reported to the NICS list’s “mental defective” category were provided by the Veterans Administration (VA) even though reporting requirements apply to all federal agencies. 1 And that percentage remained virtually unchanged as of April 2013.2 Given the numbers, it is essential to ensure that the process by which the VA reports names to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for placement on the NICS list recognizes and protects the fundamental nature of veterans’ rights under the Second Amendment.”
“In accordance with the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) adopted a regulation that defined a different standard for firearm regulation than that imposed by the VA,” Grassley writes. “The standard adopted is a ‘mental defective’ standard that, at its core, allows regulation only when someone is a danger to themselves and/or others. The regulation itself even states that the standard does not include persons suffering from mental illness but who are not a danger to themselves.”
The ATF is an unconstitutional agency just like every other alphabet agency in the executive branch. They should not even be allowed to exist under law. A corrupt government is scared of allowing battle hardened soldiers any access to firearms which they would use with great success against said government .
As Americans everywhere (including Vets) are waking up, and the “Silent Majority’s” voice grows louder, you can imagine the fear this administration has of an uprising. They continually pit Americans against one another using race, wealth and other things, keeping good people everywhere arguing over insignificant issues.
I have to give them credit. So far, in a way it is working.
They fear American people remembering we are all in this together and uniting against the political machine in Washington. Again, the largest threat in their eyes would come from the 20+ million veterans walking freely among us.
Wake up America, it’s why they are pushing for gun control. It has nothing to do with the shootings and lives that are lost. The elite care about nothing but the almighty profit margin and complete control.
