VA Has Revoked Gun Rights for 260,000 Veterans Since December

Veterans-DayBy Joshua Krause

The Department of Veterans Affairs has long proven that bureaucracy and medical care are incompatible. It’s bad enough that the incompetence and waste of the VA has led to the deaths of thousands of veterans in recent years, but apparently they’re also treating them like garbage while they’re still alive.

Last December the VA started reporting thousands of veterans to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check system, which is responsible for determining whether or not a potential gun buyer is legally allowed to own a firearm.

Specifically, they’ve been reporting veterans who have a fiduciary trustee to act on their behalf for legal or financial matters. All veterans with this arrangement are being automatically declared “mentally defective” according to Guns.com, and are having their second amendment rights revoked. Over the past 4 months alone the VA has reported over 260,000 veterans to the NICS, which now accounts for 99% of all “mentally defective” claims to the database.

Of course, not all veterans with a fiduciary trustee are a danger to themselves or others, and unfortunately the VA hasn’t bothered to investigate any of these individuals to see if they should be reported. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa has been questioning the VA on this matter, and hopes to put a stop to it. “The very agency created to serve them (veterans) is jeopardizing their Second Amendment rights through an erroneous reading of gun regulations. The VA’s careless approach to our veterans’ constitutional rights is disgraceful.”

    “Gun rights will only be suspended if a felon or if you are ADJUDICATED mentally ill” Obama said. Yeah right. Why do you think they want all our medical records online? So they can declare anyone who has ever seen a shrink or taken an antidepressant or anti anxiety med for any reason to be mentally ill & unable to carry a firearm; maybe even take away your rights & assign you a conservator to steal your assets & put you in a home.

    People who take “happy pills” better watch out too….I won’t take an antidepressent if I ever were to get depressed just for this reason. It’s a automatic classification of mental instability….a TRAP.

    S306 that Cruz is pushing wants to classify your kids in the same way so they will also be denied rights later on in life via Common Core mental evaluation standards. Cruz is a trojan horse.

    Besides they don’t work they just zombify you and possibly cause suicide….coping with problems & praying to God is the only way.

      Before 1988 depression was not that big of a problem. What changed? New medication that makes big money for pharmaceutical companies.

      The reason there are not enough births now, but there used to be is the side effect of anti-depressant drugs. Drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, etc. kill the libido and for those that have taken the drug for any length of time, the libido does not return when the user stops taking the drug.
      Research it yourself and you will read from people over and over with this problem. Before 1988 no one was taking these drugs and we didn’t need them as a society. Now there are millions of people on them and guess what? Once you take them for any length of time you can’t get off them. They change your nervous system and your se x drive never comes back – therefore no babies. The pharmaceutical companies and doctors are responsible for this wide spread problem. Someone has a bad day or a problem with a death or something and right away the doctors are giving them a drug they will be hooked on for the rest of their lives. Great for the drug companies, but disaster for se x lives and population growth as well as other health related issues.

        Important stuff BB, thanx..

        Drugs like Paxil , Zoloft,PROZAC are also high dose FLUORIDE and cause birth defects. Many lawsuits ongoing. A 2006 study of nursing home residents on Prozac showed a 50% increase in hip fractures because while F makes bone APPEAR denser on a DEXA scan it is very brittle & breaks easier. Another reason dentists ask on intake forms if you have ever taken biophosphinates for osteoporosis; because they cause “fossy jaw”.

      I was on the happy pills once during a difficult time. I didn’t know any better then and now im free of them. However, if you look at me and the fact that I have become an activist/truther, they could turn me into a terrorist in a heart beat! Watch my back guys!

      • betterboy

        I’m glad you brought that up. One of the side effects of getting off the drugs is the intense desire to kill people – the reason there are more mass murders than before 1988.

    It is an absolute trap. Never admit to mental disorder or struggles of any kind. They WILL remove your freedom and liberty in any way they wish, after you confess.

    • Well I admit, I like to eat healthy. But now that eating healthy is a mental illness, I’m not sure what to do…

      • Brett

        Yeah, couldn’t believe it when I read about that. I mean really? Who REALLY has the mental disorder?

  • betterboy

    Those that don’t own guns do not realize just how important the 2nd amendment is to their existence. People become complacent until there is a disaster and then it is too late. At the very least, every family should have a gun and plenty of ammo locked away for emergency and they should know how to use that gun. Look at the nightmare some people had during Katrina when the criminals got out of the jails and took over. You just never know what is in store for you. If there is a nightmare situation, it would be unlikely that could obtain a gun quickly. Here in CA there is a 10 day waiting period. Having a gun and learning how to use it is the cheapest life insurance policy you can own. Just to be clear, I stated the gun should be locked away for safety around children and unstable family members and to comply with applicable laws. Everyone should seek advice from a professional about owning and using guns. I am not a gun professional.

    The last thing the NWO fools want is a vet with a gun. Why? because they are trained to use them and know too much about warfare. Just another ploy to make sure any resistance from the people will be futile…

    To Chuck Grassley. You have done great work in the past. But this time Obamas gun grabbing bill is very clear. Collect SSDI, have a fiduciary trustee, government takes guns. How is that an eronious reading of the bill?
