When someone serves our nation in the military, the reality is that they are placing the life and limbs on the line for our nation. Military pay is very low and difficult for a family to live on, so when these men and women get out of the military, they should be entitled to the same constitutional right as everyone else, if not more so. However, a number of liberal Democrats, including ex-congresswoman Gabby Giffords want to deny them of their Second Amendment right to own and bear arms.
Gabby Giffords’ gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS) is urging opposition to a repeal of the gun ban for military veterans.
On March 16 Breitbart News reported that the House voted to repeal the gun ban for military veterans and ARS is asking gun controllers to convince their Senators not to follow suit.
ARS posted a link that helps gun controllers write a letter to their Senators. The text of the link says, “Write a letter to your Senators saying that you OPPOSE legislation that would prevent the Department of Veterans Affairs from submitting mental health records to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System,”
The idea of anyone bearing arms to protect our nation and then being denied of the right to bear arms to protect themselves and their families here at home is completely ridiculous. Yet, liberal Democrats, in their quest to disarm the American people, want to do that exact thing and keep guns out of the hands of military veterans.
