URGENT: Veterans are receiving letters from Obama administration prohibiting the ownership of firearms… Developing…


[TWG UPDATE: Received this from a Friend today.  I have no idea it’s validity, but if true, it should give everyone serious cause for concern.  Just imagine how your life would change if one day you learned you have been labeled with a psychological diagnosis, without your input or cooperation….. Suddenly, you have no human and civil rights.  Our Veterans don’t deserve this.

 

“For all of you veterans out there needing services from the VA be aware of the following. A very good friend, veteran of Viet Nam war wanted medical treatment of shoulder pain, possible surgery. The VA during this process said he was suffering from PTSD. Okay. Well I have known this person for thirty years and PTSD is not there anymore than living in LA or Chicago. We hunt and fish as friends do and he recently tried to by a new hunting rifle…DENIED because he has PTSD according to the VA. So if you are a vet decide what you want.. PTSD or ability to buy a firearm or even own one… food for thought.”

TWG: I have not verified this, but if true, it should wake a few Veterans up.  I’ve been screaming about this for a few years, only to be told “they wouldn’t do that! This is America!”  Well, they will, and they ARE doing it. 

At what point do I just cross my arms, shake my head in disgust and say “I told you so.”?

 They’re using the PTSD scheme to disarm our Veterans on a MASSIVE scale.  They’re diagnosing PTSD for an overwhelming majority of our returning Veterans! Drugging them up, labeling them psychologically disabled and incapable of managing their lives and retaining their human and civil rights.
  This is why, EXACTLY WHY, we’re seeing so many leftists suddenly pretending to be concerned for our returning Veterans. They’ve created front groups pretending to be advocacy groups and support groups for Veterans,  with the very clear objective of disarming those Veterans.  It makes me SICK to see ANY Veteran supporting the obama regime and their diabolical schemes.  They are TRAITORS to this Nation and Her Citizens and they are TRAITORS to each and every military Veteran who ever fought for the cause of Freedom and Liberty.  I will only pray this latest stunt by the regime will wake a few Veterans from their slumber.

DEAR VETERANS……. WAKE UP!  WAKE UP NOW!  PLEASE WAKE UP!  WAKE UP!!!!!!!!

GOD Almighty…. What in Hell is it going to take to wake people up?

Written By Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, J.D.

How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.

What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?

That makes is sound like something right from a documentary on a tyrannical dictatorship somewhere in the world. Yet, as I write this I have a copy of such a letter right in front of me. It is being sent by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of America’s heroes. In my capacity as Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) I have been contacted by some of these veterans and the stories I am getting are appalling.

The letter provides no specifics on the reasons for the proposed finding of incompetency; just that is based on a determination by someone in the VA. In every state in the United States no one can be declared incompetent to administer their own affairs without due process of law and that usually requires a judicial hearing with evidence being offered to prove to a judge that the person is indeed incompetent. This is a requirement of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that states that no person shall “… be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”.

Obviously, the Department of Veterans Affairs can’t be bothered by such impediments as the Constitution, particularly since they are clearly pushing to fulfill one of Obama’s main goals, the disarming of the American people. Janet Napolitano has already warned law enforcement that some of the most dangerous among us are America’s heroes, our veterans, and now according to this letter from the VA they can be prohibited from buying or even possessing a firearm because of a physical or mental disability.

Think about it, the men and women who have laid their lives on the line to defend us and our Constitution are now having their own Constitutional rights denied. There are no clear criteria for the VA to declare a veteran incompetent. It can be the loss of a limb in combat, a head injury, a diagnosis of PTSD, or even a soldier just telling someone at the VA that he or she is depressed over the loss of a buddy in combat. In none of these situations has the person been found to be a danger to themselves or others. If that was the case than all of the Americans who have suffered from PTSD following the loss of a loved one or from being in a car accident would also have to be disqualified from owning firearms. It would also mean that everyone who has ever been depressed for any reason should be disarmed. In fact, many of the veterans being deprived of their rights have no idea why it is happening.

The answer seems to be it is simply because they are veterans. At the USJF we intend to find the truth by filing a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Veterans Affairs to force them to disclose the criteria they are using to place veterans on the background check list that keeps them from exercising their Second Amendment rights. Then we will take whatever legal steps are necessary to protect our American warriors.

The reality is that Obama will not get all of the gun control measures he wants through Congress, and they wouldn’t be enough for him anyway. He wants a totally disarmed America so there will be no resistance to his plans to rob us of our nation. That means we have to ask who will be next. If you are receiving a Social Security check will you get one of these letters? Will the government declare that you are incompetent because of your age and therefore banned from firearm ownership. It certainly fits in with the philosophy and plans of the Obama administration. It is also certain that our military veterans don’t deserve this and neither do any other Americans.
