If you served your country, you deserve all the rights accorded to every U.S. citizen.
Yes, ALL the rights.
An no matter how much evidence gun rights supporters throw in liberals’ faces, it always seems like our veterans end up getting the short end of the stick.
Of course, given the Democrat regime that has had a stranglehold on this country for the past decade or so, general gun rights have dwindled. The second amendment isn’t quite so clear anymore.
Only recently did senior citizens reclaim their full gun rights, thanks to a more common sense administration.
The Obama administration worked hard to strip veterans of their rights for years; you may recall this happening:
Now, we’ve got a BIG win for both NRA supporters and those who have so bravely served this country.
Via Western Journalism:
“The House of Representatives on Thursday took the first step in scrapping a law that denies thousands of veterans the ability to own a gun.
The House voted 240-175 for the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act to go to the Senate. The White House has signaled that President Donald Trump will sign the legislation if it passes the Senate.
The bill would end the current practice under which the Department of Veterans Affairs rules that veterans who cannot manage their financial affairs are automatically entered into National Instant Criminal Background Check System as unable to own a gun.”
Supporters of the bill says there’s no verifiable connection between fiscal acuity and gun ownership. Said Rep. Ken Buck, R-Fla.:
“What it says (is) if you can’t balance a bank account, you can’t handle a firearm. There is no relation between the two. So many people have been trapped by this overbroad rule.”

And of course, it does infringe on those aforementioned second amendment rights. And unsurprisingly, the National Rifle Association supports the bill; NRA Executive Director Chris Cox added:
“No veteran should have their fundamental right to self-defense arbitrarily revoked by a government bureaucrat.”
“Receiving assistance to handle personal finances does not mean an individual is unable to safely own a firearm. Our brave men and women in the military should not be stripped of their constitutional rights without due process of law.”
Yes, it’s important to protect our rights. And when it comes to our veterans, President Trump has proven time and time again that he is a friend to the U.S. military, which means this bill should pass.
BIG win, fellow Americans!
