Obama’s Gun Grabbers Back Down, For Now

(Before It's News)

Fellow Conservative,

Last week, I told you about the VA’s latest attempts to strip a US Navy Veteran of his Constitutional rights.

VA inspectors were descending on John Arnold’s home. Some bureaucrat in the Department of Veterans’ Affairs deemed him to be incompetent because he needed help managing his finances. Only in Obama’s America can an unelected bureaucrat take away someone’s constitutional rights like this.

More than a hundred of John Arnold’s neighbors showed up to turn these VA thugs away. And, it worked. The inspectors were forced to turn around and leave with their tails between their legs.

Just yesterday, the VA announced that they were officially giving up trying to confiscate John Arnold’s guns. A victory, right? Sort of…

While the VA will no longer actively try to disarm this veteran, they still refuse to take his name off the list of prohibited persons. By doing this, Obama’s VA has made it illegal for John Arnold to buy any more guns and ammunition. If he tries to buy a new gun, he’d be breaking the law.

The VA says that it is up to him to prove that he is not mentally deficient. That means he needs to hire a lawyer and fight this in court.

Why should he have to do this? Or better yet, why should one unelected bureaucrat have the right to suspend someone’s 2nd, 4th, or 5th Amendment rights?

This has to stop! Demand that Congress pass John Cornyn’s legislation and end the VA’s unconstitutional disarmament program!

More than 170,000 veterans have had their 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendment rights violated.

The 4th Amendment protects Americans from unreasonable searches and seizures. VA inspectors have been busting down doors and confiscating Americans’ firearms. Clearly unconstitutional.

The 5th Amendment protects Americans’ right to due process. An unelected bureaucrat making a decision isn’t due process. Telling a Veteran they can fight it later in court isn’t due process.

And obviously, the 2nd Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms and last time I checked, there wasn’t a qualifier that says John Arnold can bear arms ‘as long as the VA says it’s ok.’

This is the problem. The Obama administration has seized this power and no one has stopped them. They have taken more than 170,000 veterans and unconstitutionally stamped on their Constitutional rights.

I can’t stress this enough. This is only the beginning. It leaked this month that the President was taking this same model – allowing bureaucrats to disarm veterans – and applying it to Social Security recipients.

We are witnessing the biggest gun grab in history coming down the pike. And Congress is doing nothing about it.

Well, that’s not entirely true. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who is the author of the concealed carry reciprocity bill languishing in Congress, has introduced new legislation to stop the Obama administration from taking ANYONE’s guns without due process. No more veterans being unconstitutionally disarmed and it would stop the expansion of this program to Social Security beneficiaries immediately!

We desperately need this legislation. It seems like every day, another story comes across our desk of how a veteran is being wrongfully disarmed.

I am asking you. No, I am begging you to rise up now and demand that Congress pass this legislation. We owe our veterans more than this.

All the best,

Joe Otto
