Dean James AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS –
I think all of you will agree, ERIC HOLDER IS A COMPLETE SCUMBAG! Brian Terry lost his life along with many others as a result of his failed FAST AND FURIOUS ‘program’ that was designed solely to take away American’s 2nd Amendment rights by means of fear mongering and deceit.
We get the idea that guns need to be kept out of the hands of dangerous criminal’s hands. But that is not what Obama and Holder and the rest of these gun grabbing commies are focused on.
They are focused on the average American. They are targeting Veterans as well.
Washington Times reports:
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee wants Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to explain why a Department of Justice gun ban list has a “mental defective” category consisting almost entirely of names belonging to military veterans and their dependents.
“It’s disturbing to think that the men and women who dedicated themselves to defending our freedom and values face undue threats to their fundamental Second Amendment rights from the very agency established to serve them,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, said in a statement Wednesday. “A veteran or dependent shouldn’t lose their constitutional rights because they need help with bookkeeping.”
Mr. Grassley outlined his concerns about the list to Mr. Holder in a letter dated this week. It included various failures by the Department of Justice – including the inconsistent application of standards and weak due process protections — that have led to the Department of Veterans Affairs adding “a disproportionate number of names” to the federal gun ban list.
All federal agencies are required to report names of individuals who are dangers to themselves or others to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s “mental defective” category — a status that prevents them from owning or possessing guns.
That means that veterans “are particularly singled out,” Mr. Grassley said. Those veterans should not be required by the Department of Veterans Affairs “to prove that they have the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” he said.
Conservative Tribune adds:
How did the VA become responsible for regulating gun ownership? And why are our veterans, who were entrusted to use all kinds of weapons to protect our nation in war, deemed not responsible enough to own firearms on the home front to protect themselves and their families?
Just when we think Obama and Holder could not come up with more absurd decisions and policies, they raise the bar of ridiculousness a little higher.
Prevent our former military personnel from using guns? Unfortunately that’s not a joke. It’s just the Obama administration in action.
Mad World News has this:
We have Muslims returning from slaughtering unbelievers with the Islamic State in Syria, and they are welcomed back into the welfare system with open arms, yet the soldiers who’ve risked everything and sacrificed much return to find that the weapons they were worthy enough to fight with for our nation’s benefit, but not worthy enough to protect themselves and their own families.
Until we can forsake political correctness and fear of seeming intolerant in order to defend those who’ve defended our lives, we can never expect to keep those same Constitutional rights with which we look to them to protect.
We couldn’t agree more. This is completely outrageous and these liberal gun grabbing idiots need to go bitch about global warming, endangered trees or dolphins and stay the hell out of our business!
