More than 250,000 have already lost their 2A rights…
The men and women who risked their lives to defend our country shouldn’t have to risk losing their constitutional rights when they access life-saving mental health treatment.
But for years, government bureaucrats have abused the unconstitutional “fiduciary rule” to arbitrarily report veterans to the NICS background check database.
As a result, more than 250,000 veterans have been deprived of their Second Amendment rights and can no longer access or possess a firearm – all without having committed any crime, without the constitutional due process necessary for the deprivation of a right, and sometimes without knowing or consenting to it.
It wouldn’t be surprising if either you or someone related to you has spent time serving in the military. But the Biden administration is hellbent on disarming those who served our nation honorably.
Thankfully, Chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee Mike Bost introduced Amendment #35 to a VA appropriations bill (H.R. 4366) that would prohibit the VA from arbitrarily transmitting veterans’ information to the NICS.
Now, we need YOU to contact your Representative and tell them to disarm the Biden Administration instead of America’s veterans by passing the Bost Amendment.
Please call your Representative at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote for the Bost Amendment to prevent Biden from disarming more veterans.
It goes without saying that our veterans deserve the best medical care America can offer them.
That includes treatment for psychological consequences related to their service.
There shouldn’t be ANY barriers deterring veterans from seeking the life-saving medical care they need…
…which is exactly why it’s so urgent for Congress to stop VA bureaucrats from unilaterally turning veterans into persons prohibited from possessing firearms.
It all starts when a VA bureaucrat decides to require a fiduciary to administer benefit payments. It ends with many of these veterans’ names being submitted to the NICS background check system.
Sadly, that information is then used to disarm them as if they had been “adjudicated as a mental defective” by a court and prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law.
Except these men and women never had the chance to defend themselves.
The Bost Amendment would prohibit the VA from transmitting information to the NICS solely on the basis that a veteran has an appointed fiduciary to manage their benefits — unless there is an order or finding from an actual judicial authority that such a veteran is a danger to themselves or others.
In other words, it would ensure that a veteran cannot be disarmed without due process.
This shouldn’t be controversial…
But with anti-gunners already rallying in opposition to Chairman Bost’s amendment, we’re counting on grassroots gun owners like YOU to speak up in defense of America’s veterans.
So please, call your Representative at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote for the Bost Amendment to prevent Biden from disarming more veterans.
