Report: Obama Administration Has Denied Gun Rights to Over 100,000 Veterans (Video)
The Obama administration is once again wasting time pushing their unconstitutional gun control measures.
Already, nearly 100,000 veterans are being denied their right to bear arms by this administration.
Dom Raso highlights a bureaucratic flaw that’s unfairly stripping veterans of their Second Amendment rights — and tells you how to help get it fixed.
The men and women of the US military were capable enough to bear arms in Afghanistan and Iraq, but the Obama administration stripped them of this right once they returned home.
This comes from a 2011 Daily Caller report:
They pledged to support and defend the Constitution, but the office of North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr says more than 100,000 U.S. military veterans may be being improperly denied one of the most fundamental rights they swore to protect.
Military veterans whose Veterans Affairs benefits are managed on their behalf by appointed fiduciary trustees are deemed “mentally defective” and reported to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a computerized database which prohibits them from purchasing firearms.
Sen. Burr is the ranking Republican member of the Senate Committee on Veteran’s Affairs. His office told The Daily Caller that around 114,000 veterans have been reported to the NICS and are unable to purchase firearms.
And now, as the one-year anniversary of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school massacre approaches, the White House is touting its record pushing control measures – and promising to do more.
