The very people who have served and protected our country with their lives, doing so through the use of various firearms, are now being told by the government that they may no longer be trusted with their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Via Red Flag News (h/t Gateway Pundit), a report from Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, J.D.:

How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.

What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?

That makes is sound like something right from a documentary on a tyrannical dictatorship somewhere in the world. Yet, as I write this I have a copy of such a letter right in front of me.

The determination of such incompetency is buoyed by no supporting guidelines, and is simply a decision made by somebody at the VA.

Here is a copy of the portion of the letter in question:

Is this a letter deserving of our men and women veterans in their home country?
