Senator: VA Denying Vets Their Constitutional Rights

We knew this was coming, didn't we, this law has been laying on the books since 2007 and it appears the push is reaching a crescendo? over 99 percent on the mentally defective list are veterans or their family members, for no apparent reason, most have no record of violence, criminal records or records of violent outbursts.


RUSS REPORT-Last week, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested an explanation from the Justice Department as to why nearly every name in the “mentally defective” category of the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) belongs to a Veteran or their dependents. Grassley is one of many who have raised this issue in recent years but introduced Bills to correct such a miscarriage of justice always seem to die in the Senate. 

Grassley’s April 15 letter to Attorney General Eric Holder says in part, “Specifically, once the VA determines that a veteran requires a fiduciary to administer benefit payments, the VA reports that veteran to the gun ban list, consequently denying his or her right to possess and own firearms.  In the past, the VA has attempted to justify its actions by relying on a single federal regulation, 38 C.F.R. § 3.353, which by its plain language grants limited authority to determine incompetence, but only in the context of financial matters.
