You won’t believe what the government is trying to do to him.
Is the VA working to disarm vets?
We posted a similar story earlier this week, of the ATF, FBI and VA joining forces to confiscate firearms of vets and social security recipients who happened to check a certain box on paperwork regarding financial help.
Well, this story about an Idaho vet has gone viral, so we wanted you to have it.
Citing the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act , the VA determined that this vet’s mild stroke, made him “incompetent” to own guns. They sent him a letter informing him he was in violation of this law and dispatched an inspector to confiscate his guns.
But a group of over 100 concerned citizens, including a county Sheriff and two state reps staged a standoff at the vet’s home, and for the moment stopped this deplorable miscarriage of the law.
