This came out last week, but I wanted to wait to cover it. When I read this, I was simply amazed. This administration is going to create a problem with returning veterans. This should make all of us veterans very upset. We must look out for our new little brothers and sisters. If there is any truth to this, this is yet another intolerable act of the Federal forces. How can you remove a Veteran’s ability to own a gun, and then tell him to get it back he has to do x, y and z. Wrong, in this country you are innocent until proven guilty. If you want to remove my ability to own a gun you need to do x, y and z. If that is not unconstitutional what is? And do you think the ACLU will be taking this case up?
First I cannot confirm this as I don’t have a letter. I can only find it on what looks like the original website called Red Flag. It appears to be a fairly valid website. Michael Connelly, J.D. Executive Director United States Justice Foundation also appears to be valid. I don’t know any thing about these guys but it looks valid.
I try to keep this site focused on what we can do. I would ask any veterans who are reading this to print out the letter which is below and visit your local VFW or American Legion hall or bar. Show someone there this letter and see if they know any thing about this. This seems to be something the VFW and / or American Legion should be taking the lead on running down. They are well situation to find out if this is valid and talk to their members and see how widespread this is. The disarming section is at the top of page two and reads “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).” Please Lord, don’t let this be real. If it is, it really means that there are people in the government who think they can deny you life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, because they THINK you may do something they don’t like. And thus our government thinks it can make this determination and then YOU have to do something to undo their “mass spam letter from hell.” If you got such a letter is there any thing in your body that says you should obey this letter? Do they put you on the “no buy” gun buy list? Should you just buy all of your guns from third party from then on? I really just hope this is not real.
