I am confident that the VA has the ability to determine whether someone is mentally stable enough to own a firearm. And if it were to be decided by a judge, the opinion of the VA would, most assuredly, dictate the outcome of the verdict anyway. I would allow for a repeal, by the veteran in question, that would then be taken to the courts for final verdict. Furthermore, I do not like the term "mentally defective". This person, in all likelihood, has given a portion of his/her life to protect the values of this country and I feel that this is somewhat of a disgraceful moniker. In all fairness, even with a Judge's disapproval of firearm possession, a veteran or citizen would have no issue procuring a weapon by other means. So, in conclusion to the wording of the bill itself, I do not feel that a Judge's ruling will affect the potential for a negative outcome or event but a layer of repeal could be added to ensure a chance at due process.
