Last month, the House of Representatives fulfilled a campaign promise and passed legislation to get the Department of Veterans Affairs out the disarmament business.
For more than a decade, the VA has implemented a program to actively disarm American military veterans. These men and women were trusted to take up arms to defend the United States but the minute they got home, their right to defend themselves entered the anti-gunners’ crosshairs.
The Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act would put an end to this disarmament scheme. It passed the House of Representatives with a bi-partisan majority of 240 votes. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) – the former Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party – even voted to dismantle the anti-gun/anti-veteran program.
Now, we are hearing that the bill is dead on arrival in the US Senate because liberal Republicans don’t want to appear ‘soft on guns…’
