According to this post by Chris Eger the office of Veterans Affairs has reported more than 260,000 veterans to the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check system (commonly referred to as NICS)… essentially eroding their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
Senate Judiciary Chairman, Chuck Grassley (R, Iowa) is disturbed by this but he fails to see it for what it is. Grassley says, “The VA’s careless approach to our veterans’ constitutional rights is disgraceful.” This assumes that the adding of a quarter of a million veterans to the “no buy” list was due to carelessness or done in error. I would argue that this is all part of Obama’s transformation of America. The socialist don’t want an armed population. A disarmed populace is much easier to dominate and control!
These men and women have put their lives on the line for all of us and they deserve our utmost admiration and respect… not to be labelled as mentally ill and stripped of their Constitutional rights!
