Veterans Disarmament Act
 
http://infowars.com/articles/2nd_ame...wning_guns.htm

I emailed Barbara boxer. You should contact your senator and tell them to vote no.
Not sure when it gets voted on. Protect the rights of those who gave so much for their country.

The is a lot of MISLEADING info on this bill out there... PLEASE read it for yourself and DO NOT depend on second hand info on it.... IMHO this bill is (among other things) about getting records of "adjudicated mentally defective or committed to a mental institution" indivuals into NICS... here is a quote from the bill...

(iv) A record that identifies a person who has been adjudicated mentally defective or committed to a mental institution (as determined in regulations implementing section 922(g)(4) of title 18, United States Code, as in effect on the date of the enactment of this Act) and whose record is not protected from disclosure to the Attorney General under any provision of State or Federal law

While I'm personally (slightly) opposed to HR 2640 (The NICS improvement act, not the "Veterans Disarmament Act") it is only because I oppose anything that involves more record keepiong and information sharing in government. The article you linked to is complete nonsense. In fact, as I recall, 2640 would make it easier to get mental health adjudication expunged (something that is now impossible). It definitely would not "place any veteran who has ever been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on the federal gun ban list." "Anyone who is diagnosed as being a tiny danger to himself or others would have his gun rights taken away ..." - that's just not true. Complete BS article.

I read the article last night and didn't have time to read the bill. I will today.

The article is definitely an ad misericordiam fallacy that I fell a bit victim to.
