General Petraeus: Approves of Revoking Military Veterans 2nd Amendment (Video)

The philosophy of the authoritarian government is that citizens don’t know what’s good for them, which is why the all-knowing government has to step in to ‘guide’ them. And when it comes to the issue of personal ownership of firearms, the federal government has for years been trying to restrict the constitutionally protected right to bear arms of its own citizens. For their own safety, of course. 

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the continuing battle surrounding our Second Amendment rights, this time surrounding the issue of military veterans – the very people who have been trained in their proper use and handling. Currently, if/when military veterans become arbitrarily labeled with the mental health moniker of ‘mentally incompetent,’ they become banned from exercising their Second Amendment rights. One of the reasons for the attempted repeal has a lot to do with the fact that the term‘mentally incompetent’ is loosely defined. Let me give you an example:

A military veteran that cannot balance his checkbook can be deemed “mentally incompetent,” and looses his Second Amendment rights.

President Obama doubles our nation’s debt from the time of the country’s inception until the day he leaves office in merely EIGHT years, and somehow Obama retains his Second Amendment Rights, and still gets to be called Mr. President, rather than Inmate #$456344?

I DON’T THINK SO!

Sadly, the repeal is being seriously challenged by none other than General David Petraeus. When will the continuous assault of our constitutionally-protected rights end?

Breitbart reports:

On March 13 Breitbart News reported that House Republicans were eyeing a repeal of the gun ban for military veterans. On March 14 retired Army General David Petraeus and his gun control group blasted the proposed repeal as “irresponsible and dangerous.”

The gun ban for military veterans works similarly to the recently repealed Social Security gun ban, in that it allows investigations to be opened on military disability recipients who require help managing their finances. Recipients who are declared mentally “incompetent” then face a prohibition on purchasing or possessing guns.

The NRA-ILA reports that a military veteran labeled with a mental health moniker would actually face “a lifetime ban on the acquisition and possession of firearms, unless he or she successfully petitions for ‘relief from disabilities.’”

House Committee on Veteran Affairs chairman Phil Roe (R-TN-1) put forward the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act to repeal this ban, but Petraeus opposes the repeal.

According to USA Today, Petraeus and the gun control group he formed with Mark Kelly–Veterans Coalition for Common Sense–sent a letter to House Republican leaders, saying, “When vulnerable veterans have access to firearms, they can do harm not only to themselves but also to family members and loved ones. The impact of these tragedies is felt in communities across our nation.”

But the NRA supports repealing the ban, viewing the ban itself as bureaucratic overreach which targets those who can quietly be stripped of their Second Amendment rights even as their Due Process rights are ignored. The NRA-ILA’s Chris Cox said, “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.”

Roe’s Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act is expected to be taken up by the full House as early as this week.

In the following video, meet John Arnold, a veteran that has been shown a lot of love from the Sheriff and other community members after the VA threatened to confiscate his weapons on Aug. 6, 2015. 

Paperwork that Arnold believes was improperly filed states that Arnold isn’t fit to care for his own finances, which prompted the government to try and confiscate his weapons. The community, as well as Two Idaho representatives, came out to show their support for the 70 year old veteran when he needed help.
