It’s no secret that Barack Hussein Obama has no respect for military veterans, but even we didn’t think he’d stoop this low…
An Iraq War veteran and defense/military policy analyst dropped a bombshell this week when he warned that Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs has been misusing the law to carry out “a massive gun ban for thousands of veterans.”
Because of head injuries and other such wounds from war, some veterans have had fiduciaries appointed to help them manage their financial affairs. You would think there would be nothing wrong with that, but in Obama’s America, you’d be wrong.
“The VA, in making the determination that a veteran requires a fiduciary to help them manage their money, is additionally making the decision that the veteran cannot handle a firearm, either,” wrote veteran Christopher Neiweem, executive director of the Neiweem Group government affairs firm, for The Hill.
Conservative Tribune reported that the VA has come to these conclusions without “conducting an evaluation to determine whether a veteran is a threat.” Instead, the Obama administration has chosen to apply a label of “mentally defective” to these veterans and then notified them that their Second Amendment rights have essentially been removed.
Neiweem wrote that the VA has cited the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 in justifying these actions, but he noted the act specifically maintained “that people who suffer from mental illnesses are not designated ‘mentally defective.’”
“The VA is using federal laws in a manner that is invalid and lacks proper oversight and fairness,” he continued, adding that the VA has also been violating the veterans’ right to due process.
The veteran said that the only way to stop Obama’s government from continuing with this is to
Congress to take action requiring that the VA first first verify whether a veteran poses a threat before it labels him or her “mentally defective.”
