Bill Would Require Due Process for Veterans to lose Second Amendment Rights

Second Amendment rights of law-abiding military veterans continue to be stripped away without due process.

A 1998 agreement between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the FBI was one of the first jabs at veterans’ Second Amendment rights.  The agreement was made to send the names of veterans into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, triggering a virtual lifetime ban from owning firearms of those who are labeled as “mentally incompetent,” meaning they need or desire the assistance of a fiduciary to help them manage, often complicated, financial affairs.


 Since the 1998 agreement around 116,000 veterans were impacted through 2007.  The most recent reports now list that number around 175,000.
