VA Unconstitutionally Tries
To Disarm Veterans

Investot´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 2/26/2013 5:41:06 AM

Guns: Veterans who bore arms to defend their country are receiving letters that they may be declared mentally incompetent and have their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms stripped from them. Welcome home. The contempt by the Obama administration for our Constitution and our rights has reached a new low with news the Veterans Administration has begun sending letters to veterans telling them they will be declared mentally incompetent and stripped of the Second Amendment rights unless they can prove to unnamed bureaucrats to the contrary.

This is blatantly unconstitutional,so where´s all the lawsuits. You can´t take away a person´s right because they served in the military.
No where in the left´s quests for gungrabbing do they mention crime and criminals,only the rare occurrence where a legal gun falls in the wrong hands.There´s been no demand that criminal register their guns because they´re part of Obama´s army.

My cousin went to the VA hospital in Dallas a couple of weeks ago on a routine visit, definately not psych related, and he was asked if he has a weapon at home. This is getting scary!

They are preparing for war. There´s no way they can be buying up enough ammo to kill every American five times while they are rapidly closing in on disarming the populace so they can install an endless tyranny, that they are not preparing for war. The unarmed marines at embassies, the bolt-less rifles in the inaugural parade,the VA disarming vets, the unavailability of ammo. Folks! They´re serious and they know they have only four years to get it done.

Obama doesn´t want to leave guns in the hands of those most capable of using them - and who have the most reason to distrust and fear him.

Ultimately, the second Amendment is the Guarantee for all other Amendments.

Obama isn´t running again, but still dreams of being President after 2016.

Hey Bugs, you miss the point. Declaring someone incompetent without due process is unconstitutional. And where due process is breached is in presuming guilt and putting the burden of proof on the veteran. It says "guilty until proven innocent".
Do you support Miranda rights for a cop killer, but no due process for a veteran?
I say you do.

New administration policy (coming as soon as they think up some way to rationalize it): Those who own guns are mentally unstable and therefore should have their guns taken away from them.

Please re-read #s 3 & 10 because that is where we are! A Lucianne thread in December based upon a Washington Times article put the initial number of vets impacted at 100,000 and stated:

The Department of Veterans Affairs forwards the names of those labeled mentally incompetent to the FBI for inclusion in a national federal database, barring them from purchasing or carrying firearms.

There is a bigger nugget of truth in this article than is being commented on here and it highlights Obama´s strategy against an armed populace (not just the returning military).

The article says that under the Brady law, if you are "determined as unable to manage your benefits (then this) prevents you from owning and possessing a firearm or ammunition."

So since slightly more than half of the U.S. is on some form of government program, it would seem logical that to reduce guns by half, all Obama has to do is enfore the Brady Law.

Given the direction of the economy (with Obama at the wheel for another 4 years), it is conceivable that that 50% could grow larger and larger.

So it has started with the Vets, but will eventually come to YOUR doorstep.

I guess Bunny hasn´t heard or read that report released by DHS last year that labels vets, both old and new, as possible terrorists to be dealt with.

This is why I am totally against registering guns in the ways that are being suggested right now. Who wants the government deciding who is incompetent and who is not? We all know this is just the nose under the tent flap to pulling this garbage on conservatives and Christians as a way to attack religion, etc.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/01/16/us/politics/16white-house-gun-proposals-documents.html (page 21)

Published: January 16, 2013
White House Gun Proposals
"...On Wednesday, President Obama unveiled a set of proposals to reduce gun violence, based on the determinations of a panel led by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. The White House described its plan in a collection of documents, outlining both executive orders that the president plans to issue and measures that must be adopted by Congress….”
-----------------------------


The #1 ‘Executive Action’
“Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require Federal Agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.” (NICS)


So the question at hand is: Will a diagnosis of PTSD by VA require reporting to NICS?

The answer is ‘YES."

Some statistics indicate that up to 30% of returning war veterans suffer some form of PTSD. And... PTSD isn’t a simple ‘yes-no’ diagnosis. There are almost as many degrees of PTSD as there are patients, with symptoms varying from bat-**** crazy to nightmares some nights.

To require VA to submit these lists of diagnosed PTSD vets to NICS, which automatically deprives them of their 2nd amendment rights and requires them to have to plead their case to have them restored is unconscionable.

If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June.

They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle.

A lecturer at English universities, Lewis became a superstar author by explaining his faith and weaving it creatively into novels.

Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
