I very seldom make 'Vanity' Posts but I have gotten this from a couple of sources and confirmed by an out patient at a Florida VA Clinic. I can understand caution BUT unless ALL individuals are asked this question at any routine physician visit - is this not eerily similar to the recent Homeland Security warning circular about Veterans?

That's the first thing that popped into my mind after reading this.

It is truly "on", friends.

Try being a head injury pt. I am NOT allowed to own a firearm at all! The powers at be are afraid that I would go “postal” on someone or group, [ie like the va for taking their time processing my disability claim(s)] My name has also put on the domestic terror watch list too, after getting angry at the va regional office in Det. and yelled at a va clerk to get off of his a$$ and get to work. While being escorted out I said something about turning the building into a smoldering crater!Those people have no sense of houmor...

This is an email you’ve gotten from a couple of people and they say this is what has happened to them lately at the VA? That’s what I got from your post. Hmmm.

In my experience with the VA and Army (because my husband was recently medically retired due to combat wounds, brain injury, PTSD, amongst other things and now he’s in teh VA system), these are normal questions they ask at intake, especially for psych type appointments. However, I’ve never heard that a yes to any of them will result in the loss of a concealed carry permit.

If and I use the word if, because I know how the email things usually pan out, this is true...not good. It will cause a lot of problems...vets who really need help won’t go get it and those with problems who admit it, will forever be chastised and labeled as mentally defective, when some of them have experienced some serious trauma or witnessed it.

It sounds like they want only Buddhists to own guns.

1.) Did I feel stressed?
No more than usual.
2.) Did I feel threatened?
No more than usual.
3.) Did I feel like doing harm to someone?
No more than usual.

I'm a retiree using Tricare, and I've been asked those questions for years, every time a visit the clinic for a checkup.

Gary Sinise has been doing radio commercials lately, urging veterans to seek help from the VA if they have PTSD. If I had PTSD I'd be hesitant to seek help, with all the talk about taking away their RKBA.
