Many Veterans Are Wrongfully Denied Gun Rights!

According to the Congressional Research Service, more than 140,000 military veterans have been disarmed because of health-related information that is now being used to disqualify them from possessing a firearm. Typically, this determination is made solely at the discretion of government psychiatrists and bureaucrats without due process! The affected veterans are not even notified of this egregious act! (That kinda sounds lie the old USSR, doesn't it?)

I was assured by my congressmen that the NICS Improvement Amendments Act (HR-2640/S-2084) that was signed by President Bush in 2008 would rectify this problem. As I expected, it did not. (Why am I not surprised that my congressmen would mislead me?)

If the government is willing to use health information to prohibit our military veterans from owning guns, how many more millions of Americans will be denied the right to own firearms -- without due process -- now that ObamaCare has been enacted?

Senator Richard Burr has introduced S.669 (Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act) to restore gun rights to those veterans whose rights have been denied without due process. Congress and the Whitehouse must ensure this bill becomes law immediately!
