Ok I am gonna state the obvious here, but many vets have PTSD which will be a gun ownership disqualifier if they have received inpatient treatment and the same is true of many people who are on Social Security disability.


No that doesn't. Neither of the things you list disqualifies a person from owning a firearm.


In this case the guy had a stroke and his doctors deemed in unfit/incompetent in such case a person cannot own a firearm same for dementia. It isn't a final say because ATM they are appealing the decision.

This will only happen if people will not band up together and fight back, in numbers is where the force is.

Protest, protest and in big numbers.

You found a good article there. It explains the why.



-
An elderly veteran in Priest River, Idaho, found himself in the middle of a heated gun debate taking place in his front yard. John Arnold, 70, a three year Navy vet suffered from a stroke in September of 2014. As a result of later doctor's visits through the Department of Veterans Affairs, it was determined that Arnold was considered not competent enough to handle his affairs.

When that happens to a veteran, the affairs are turned over to either a family member or the Department of Veteran Affairs will assume responsibility.

Do you actually feel that people that have been deemed incompetent to even handle their own affairs and do not have anyone that can take over responsibility for them should be armed?

Veterans should use the VA but do not do sign the VA advance directive form with out spelling out that someone else holds a power of Attorney and power of Attorney for health care

The VA advance directive form gives the VA Power of Attorney over a veteran.

This may over ride a Durable Power of Attorney that you have with someone you trust unless you spell out that you have a master power of Attorney and power of Attorney for health care with someone else that over rides the VA documents

If you become ill long term the VA if you do not have a Durable Power of Attorney with someone you trust the VA can sell your home take your property ECT. ECT.

Sadly; there are 49 to 51 percent of americans that think this sort of government douchery is a good idea.

Nothing that begins or requires a lie is ever good. Household rule #1 here at home...having to lie always means something bad.

I don't know. Did they take his steak knives and box cutters? His razor and shoelaces? How about removing his hands so he doesn't choke anyone...or better yet...follow it through and just decide he doesn't have any rights and kill him.

Does THAT work for you too?

No opinion on that either?

What crap advice. Vets should use the VA as much as possible. Just an FYI, the VA is pretty much run by vets. The problem comes from the fact that the VA can't fart without Congressional approval. I'm gonna guess from your post that you are neither a vet, nor have ever met someone who works for the VA.


What about that waiting list business? Short memory it seems.
