Veterans shouldn’t be denied their constitutional right to bear arms simply because they use a fiduciary to handle their affairs a VA bureaucrat has classified them as “mentally defective.” This bill would give them due process through the judicial system and prevent bureaucratic overreach.
The Dept. of Veterans Affairs has all the information it needs at its disposal to determine whether a veteran or beneficiary is a danger to themselves or others, and should be responsible for blocking those who are a danger to themselves or others from buying guns.
