The Obama administration is failing our veterans in every way conceivable. The Veterans Administration has been plagued with scandal, as hundreds of thousands of veterans are waiting for care, or never receive care.
The right to health care for military veterans is being denied by incompetence, but the Department of Veteran Affairs is working to take away another right -their Second Amendment rights – with intent.
Two Senate Republicans are seeking to understand the Veterans Affairs office practice of reporting veterans to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check system.
Currently a veterans assigned a fiduciary trustee to act on their behalf is automatically declared “mentally defective” and is reported to NICS, the database Federal Firearms Licensees use to determine whether a prospective buyer is eligible to buy guns. As of December 2015, the VA has reported 260,381 individuals to the FBI, effectively making them prohibited firearms possessors under the law.
Making a due process argument, the lawmakers argue the VA uses the fiduciary trustee status of a veteran to regulate firearms possession without ever seeking to find out if the service member is a danger to themselves or others.
