    Letters to Vets About Taking Their Gun Rights? Endorsed by 98 U.S. Senators
    By: Dean Garrison
    A few days ago, several media sources started to report that our veterans are receiving letters which deprive them of their second amendment rights. I am rarely, if ever, the first to a story. This is the nature of being a “small potatoes” blogger. By time it gets to me the best thing I can do is develop it and fill in the blanks that the original sources omitted in their haste to be first. Sometimes the details are worse than the original story and I believe this is one of those cases. It really just depends on how deep you want to dig.
    Yet again the American public is caught by surprise despite being warned that this was coming. I think there is a natural assumption, due to the mention of “The Brady Act” that this was put in place years ago and this is simply a new interpretation. This is not the case. Let’s go back to December 3, 2012 to find the only evidence I can see of a senator trying to stop this from happening. By the way, by my findings, the only big media sources to report this side of the story were Fox News and The Huffington Post. This is how they sneak these things through.
    Here’s your warning shot:
    Should veterans deemed too mentally incompetent to handle their own financial affairs be prevented from buying a gun?
    The issue, for a time last week, threatened to become the biggest sticking point in a $631 billion defense bill for reshaping a military that is disengaging from a decade of warfare.

    First off Schumer is a dirtbag. "Should veterans deemed too mentally incompetent to handle their own financial affairs be prevented from buying a gun?" Are they judging that on if they pay their bills on time? If so, a good part of America could be on the list not just veterans.

    Heck, who is the gov't to judge the vets. They can't handle the budget in DC themselves. So that should ban all of them from anything to do with firearms or weapons by their own rules.

    We have a government in which the majority is not fit or competent to govern. Honor and honesty are concepts that to these political pieces of crap are foreign concepts. Yet these low-life political whores consider themselves fit to make judgements on the rights of men who are far superior and have contributed far more to this country. The veterans should be judged only by their peers and not by people who have not served in combat or risked their lives for this country.

    NO, I don't want those with serious mental problems to have guns; but allowing people like Schumer or Feinstein to judge them is an obscenity. We also have an Administration with an anti American and anti military bias that is trying to form a socialist, Utopian country. They are afraid that veterans and honest hard working Americans might object to what is being done to this country. This is why this Administration and the progressives are so intent on destroying the Second Amendment. Government fear of the people is an indication that we still have a small amount of individual liberty remaining. When government has a monopoly on force we will all become slaves of the tyranny. We have maintained our liberty in this country (we are the oldest republic that has ever existed) because of an armed populace; and that's exactly why the founders gave us the Second Amendment.

    The headline is a lie, but that's not exactly something new. 98 Senators voted to pass the $631 billion defense appropriations bill, not to deny rights to veterans. Most of them probably didn't even know this provision was in there. And Senator Tom Coburn, who led the opposition to this provision, is still doing exactly that. He just plans to do it with other legislation rather than trying to hold up the entire defense budget over it. The fact that this battle is being fought at all is a major step further forward from where we were six months ago. It's pretty low for someone to misrepresent it in a headline to make it sound like something it isn't when we're actually making some progress.

    When the government stops trying to manage the American publics private lives then and only then can we as Americans give a sigh of relief, Till then stay on the alert for anything that may alter our rights as individuals.

    I don't give them any slack for not reading what was in the bill, if they signed the bill their still responsible for what's in it and should be held accountable for signing it.

    I didn't say I was giving anyone slack for not reading it. I said they chose not to hold up the entire defense budget over this one provision. If they did that for every bill that had unsavory provisions or amendments tacked on, almost nothing would ever pass Congress. While that may not sound like such a bad idea at first glance, it would prevent critical functions of the government, such as national defense, from functioning. What Coburn and others did, and quite wisely in my opinion, was choose to deal with this particular issue in a way that didn't hold the defense budget hostage.
