Vets rapidly losing 2nd Amendment gun rights
Gun owners are on the defensive these days from assaults on their civil rights. Sen. Feinstein’s 2013 Assault Weapons Ban and Vice President Biden’s list of gun control initiatives are only the beginning. Behind the scenes, US military veterans are afraid they are being specifically targeted and are quickly losing their 2nd Amendment rights. According to one group, in over 150,000 instances, they already have.
“Mentally defective” veterans
There’s a phenomenon in the US military that has always puzzled this author. No American seems more pro-tyranny and anti-We The People than the active duty US soldier. But no American is more pro-We The People and anti-tyranny than the US military veteran. For generations, veterans have been the defenders of liberty in America, not the US military. Now, all that may change if the Obama administration has its way.
The veterans PAC called Special Operations Speaks(SOS) issued a dire warning a few days ago. They’re afraid Attorney General Eric Holder, at the insistence of President Obama, will add all military veterans diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to the rolls of Americans forbidden from owning or purchasing firearms.
“Our veterans put it all on the line to protect our Constitution,” Col. Dick Brauer, USAF (Ret.) and Co-Founder of Special Operations Speaks told supporters, “But if President Obama and his gun-grabbing allies get their way, they will be among the first to see their Constitutional rights limited.”
Col. Dick Brauer says the threat, “sounds too insulting and ridiculous to be true.” But the retired Air Force Colonel insists that it’s already happening. “In fact,” he explains, “Thanks to executive actions that are already in effect, more than 150,000 veterans have had their names added to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, NICS as it’s commonly called.”
