If given the power, the Federal government will deny most people seeking their permission to buy a gun. There will be no respect as Holder and crowd will go for broke as the VA is doing to Vets.

Congress had best be careful what power they give to the Feds in vetting who gets their second amendment rights. Liberals will be classifying everyone as mentally ill and therefore, not qualified to own a gun. It will be like the Soviet Union.

I hope the courts restore these vets’ rights. The VA is not to be trusted with personal information.

We need to find out the criteria used by the VA to determine who receives these letters.

If it is truly a blanket letter, sent to all returning Vet’s, this outrage must stopped, NOW!

The silence from our top brass in the military is scary on this matter.

I don’t know.

Some people are too evil or too nutty to be trusted with a gun. I have an ex wife. Some days she is one, other days the other. Best if she doesn’t have a gun.

Still, it is hard to trust the government to guess right as to who is too nutty or too evil, and who is harmlessly nutty. For evil, innocent until proven guilty is, to my mind, the proper standard.

To my mind it is best that most people not proven to be nutty or evil have the opportunity to be armed in self defense, and that people who can not, or will not should be protected by their fellow citizens. A penumbra of doubt protects people who are not absolutely known to be disarmed, which is why CCW permits work.

Criminals fear most the sudden and acute failure of the victim selection process. Nutty people don’t quite fear like normal folks, but they often understand risk or potential risk of early frustration of their nutty schemes, and perhaps return to the planning stage. If that fails, they can perhaps be stopped without an 11 minute delay between their revealing their plan and the arrival of the gendarmes.

Every veteran with mental problems will not go for treatment thanks to this new “rule”. And the way it’s worded they’re in trouble if they own a gun period.

I wonder what all the veterans who voted for obama think of this. Take one anti-depresant to quit smoking and they’re screwed.

The 2nd Amendment reads, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” I don’t see any qualifiers attached such as, “unless mentally chalenged.” I’m sure they had nut jobs back in the 1700’s. This crap has got to stop.
