Watch: Has The Obama Administration Found A Way To Strip Veteran’s Second Amendment Rights? Are Citizens Next?

President Obama has made no secret of the fact that gun control has been on his top list of priorities. In fact, he has stated on numerous occasions that his utmost disappointment while in office has been his inability to further limit American’s rights to maintain and bear arms.

Obama just may have stooped to a new low concerning our veteran’s when the Administration passed new strategies that would make it impossible for disabled veterans to carry out their Second Amendment rights.

Citizens of northern Idaho, who where in an uproar over claims that Federal Representatives were planned on taking a Navy veteran’s weapons from him, lined up outside the veteran’s home in protest, according to the Associate Press.

“Idaho Republican State Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.”

I wonder how this could have happened. After all, it wasn’t long ago that American’s were being told by liberals that our paranoia of weapon confiscation was just that, paranoia.

It looks like fiction, then, has been born of the non-fiction writings as veterans wonder when and if their 2A rights will be violated.

How is this being done you might ask? By placing veterans on the FBI’s criminal background-check list, that’s how.

“The VA sends veterans’ personal medical and financial information directly to the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, which can seize their guns in home raids,” reports The Daily Caller.

The theme of the event was Keeping Traditions Alive, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and 70 years of Navy presence in Riverside County, first as a naval hospital serving wounded from Pearl Harbor and currently as the Navy's independent assessment agent and one of its newest federal labs.

“Veterans deemed mentally incompetent or financially incapable are finally speaking out about the errors in the system and the fearful harassment they and their families face from the federal government. And it all starts when vets go to the VA to get medical help.”

This takes us back to veteran Arnold and the protest that went on at his house. 70 year-old Arnold has full cognition but a stroke he suffered in January made it necessary to seek medical attention from the VA. The VA deemed Arnold, solely because of his inability to handle his own finances, “mentally defective.” That diagnosis alone gave the government ‘cause’ to take Arnold’s Second Amendment rights away.

Yes, thus far, it seems only the VA is being affected by these ‘financial/incompetency’ reports. But, doesn’t this set up a precedent? Why, then, would the same standard not be applied to ALL Americans?

Based on that unjust governmental assessment alone, there will be millions upon millions of American’s who will lose their rights to bear arms. How many very ‘sane’ people do YOU know who can’t seem to handle their finance? Look at the bankruptcy in this country and you will get a pretty good idea.

According to AP, “The protest—spearheaded by Scott [Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard] —attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold’s guns, and Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a ‘defiance against tyranny.’”

“’I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho’, Wheeler said. This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.’”

Well, can we give them a round of applause for doing the right thing in this incident?

Now, don’t get mad at the VA on this one. The Va HAS to send the health information to the FBI and they received a memo stating as much. “VA will provide an encrypted compact disc exchanged via mail to the FBI no less than quarterly for, inter alia, inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS),” according to the memo.

What happened to Mr. Arnold is surely an outrage and it is a sure indication that Obama has not given up on his dream, or to what lengths he will go, to limit America’s rights to keep and bear arms. 

The government seems to be having a problem with their own financial situation and by that fact and their rules, maybe THEY should also have their guns taken away….

    • Hahaha! Yes, but they are basing the inability to handle your finances as a mental disorder and, therefor, taking the rights from the veterans. So, why wouldn’t they use the same theory on all Americans??

  3. As long as we have the 2nd Amendment we are good to go. Do you believe the current military will let this no nothing knee grow strip them of their rights to bear arms? Never happened, to many guns pointed at the boy who would be king. White House would not withstand drone strikes in spite of the fact it will be in need for a complete do over once the “Jefferson’s” are finally gone.

  4. “Common sense” gun control is and always has been about disarming America. I can guarantee you dear lady, Obama and company will be long gone before that actually happens. Yeah, they’re working on it but Americans are not like Australians or some third world nation completely dependent on the government, though we’re headed that way.

    • Indeed, we are headed that way… When will Americans wake up and start doing something about it BEFORE it gets so bad. Oh yeah, that’s right…it’s just paranoia. Silly me. 🙂

  5. What is definitely true is that government isn’t trustworthy, and I do not understand, given their awful track record, why even one veteran would ever go a VA Clinic for treatment. If you go to the VA, they are more than likely going to kill you and, if not that, they collect information about your mental state and then use that information against you. So that they can control the people government fears most: people who were fearless enough to serve their country, and people who are trained in the use of firearms.

    Of course, the government has a plan for that, too: robots armed with mini guns so that Americans will not longer have to stand up for their country. I’d say in 50 to 100 years, not a single person living in the United States will consider themselves an American, everyone will depend on the government for everything, and everyone will become chattel to people just like Obama and Clinton. The sad part of this is, even now, most veterans gave up their rights in exchange for government services.

    • If American’s don’t think this will leave a precedent for them to start going after the average Joe then they have another thing coming. As I wrote, take a look at the number of Bankruptcies in this country and I will show you a TON of possibilities for this government to take control. Of course, they can’t take care of their own finances so who in the hell are they to point a finger? Seems to me they should have THEIR guns taken away by their definition!

    Ironic, is that Obama, refuses to disarm Blacks and Latino in ghettos that are unlawfully in possession of firearms and go around killing, robbing, and raping. Then what is expected if any real man with balls is elected president in 2016?
