The VA Tries To Trick Veterans Into Adding Their Firearms To A Federal Registry

Any rational minded person understands that the reason you have a firearm registry is in order to make it easier to confiscate those weapons later.  I mean, a registry doesn’t stop crime, it doesn’t help solve crimes either unless someone actually LEAVES the gun behind, and it doesn’t make anyone safer.

What it does do is give the Federal Government an EZ Pass on the highway of tyranny.  This is of extra import when it comes to military veterans as the Obama administration has all ready made it clear that  it views veterans as a terrorist subset of Americans.

Case in point, Operation Vigilant Eagle, a program launched by the Department of Homeland Security in 2009.  Military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are being characterized as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

How easy is it to get on the Obama crap-list?  Post something negative about him on facebook or write a disparaging song about him and put it on youtube.

Sounds crazy right?  Not so crazy to 27 year old Marine veteran Brandon Raub,  who was arrested in 2013 by a swarm of FBI and Secret Service and forcibly detained in a psychiatric ward for a week.  His crime?  Posting controversial song lyrics and political views on Facebook.

Here’s an example of his “dangerous” and “radical” facebook statements:

“The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.”

In a hearing on Aug. 20, government officials pointed to Raub’s Facebook posts as the reason for his incarceration.  The scary part is that a “Special Justice” ordered he be held for 30 additional days for evaluation and “treatment.”  I’m sure a lot of “treatment” can take place in a month…just look at China…they have treatment centers for people who speak out against the government too.

Fortunately for Raub, Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett stepped in and dismissed the case against him stating the prosecutions case was: “so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.”

Yet now, the Department of Veterans Affairs wants vets to voluntarily enter their firearms into a Federal Registry.

Some veterans have received a form letter in recent days from the VA offering gun locks if they return a completed form listing their name, address and number of guns in the home.

The letter states:

“As your partner in healthcare, we are committed to keeping you and your family safe. Gun locks have been shown to greatly reduce death and injury caused by firearms in the home. If you own a gun, we hope you will request and use a gun lock.”

That’s right.  “Just give us all the information we want about your guns and we will give you a shiny new gun lock for each of them…so it will be harder for you to get to them when we storm your house in the middle of the night to take them.”  The Native Indians on Manhattan got a similar deal back in the day.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing inherently evil about gun locks if you have kids in your household and whatnot but let’s not pretend that this isn’t a blatant attempt to get firearm information of people that this administration views as a threat.

If the VA was REALLY interested in handing out safety locks, they would make the locks available at VA offices, hospitals and clinics for vets to come in and take a couple without having to forfeit their privacy to their ever invasive eye of the government. 

To all the veterans who served this country with honor and distinction I say; do not be complicit and facilitate your own injustice.   Take a pass on this offer for free gun locks because the only benefit that will come of it will be making the FBI’s job easier when they storm your house to take your guns.

    Comrade Dear and Glorious Ruler, Hussein the Magnificent, has turned the USA into the USSA, a poor copy of North Korea. We veterans, LEOs and active duty military will take back our Republic when the SHTF – we gua-ran-damn-TEE it!

    • Mrs. Patriot

      THANK YOU!! We veterans’ wives will do our part too. Maybe even alongside you.

      We should have just changed all the locks while they were in Hawaii and left a sign on the door saying “No Trespassing!

  • DL Hancock

    Veterans shouldnt even mention that they own guns, go to the range or hunt or anything. as far as that goes, no one should to anyone. These are sad days i our country for freedoms, temperarily anyway.

  • VictorLandry

    Send the form back saying you don’t have any guns.

    • Charles Edwards

      So then they gig you for falsifying a govt document, suffering from paranoia, and a fistfull of other ‘violations.’ Made my 1st visit to the doc in a few years last week. Treated as a new patient since int was so long. Found out he is now partnered up with one of the big hospitals and they had 15 pages of info they wanted, I just skipped over a lot of it that seemed like innocent questions but would have divulged just enough info to be misconstrued to say things that were not true. Sure enough once they had it in writing (my own) they went through the whole thing without looking at my answers verbally. I tried to joke about the ones I flat was not going to answer pretty much letting them know that it was none of their damn business.

    • Hop

      I say wipe your arse with the form, seal it in a zip-loc bag and send it back anonymously.

      • Randy Cutter

        They would run dna on it…

    Well, using the disparaging post as a guideline I am so far down the crapper that I will never see daylight.

    The VA is showing its Obama installed subversive sneaky attacks on some of the most vulnerable persons in our society. Our wounded and service affected veterans.
    Obama, the traitorous Muslim liar, is once again trying to assure that Americans are unable to defend themselves against criminal attack, and most importantly, bill of rights encroachment by our own government.

  • akoby

    Don’t give out any info to the government, especially since they don’t mind you dying for them, but if you survive you are a threat to them. Such thanks for your service! Say nothing. If you need a lock for your gun, go buy one. Do not be like the useful idiots that traded their freedom for an “Obamaphone” or the promise of free birth control. There are no freebies and the sooner the dumb among us realize that, the better off we will be as a country.

    • VT Patriot

      But, if we don’t let them know the location of all the guns in our once beautiful country, how will they ever control us? I guess that includes knives, ball bats, and rock piles too. Ooops, hope I didn’t give them any ideas.

    It’s pathetic the tactics being used to bully people into getting firearm information and prosecuting them. It’s bad enough these vets aren’t getting the treatment they deserve and need, now they have to worry about being tagged as a terrorist. I read an article a while ago, indicating that the FBI and Homeland Security were being advised by Southern Poverty Law Center as to who should be considered terrorists. If your not aware, the SPLC is a liberal group. Google it. There were no liberal groups on their list that I am aware of. Just recently, the FBI said they were no longer using the recommendations of the SPLC. Thank God for small favors. It’s disgusting that any American citizen, let alone a veteran is tagged as a terrorist by the United States Government. It’s too bad they don’t treat our enemies like this. Not to say that we haven’t had home grown terrorists. There have been too many situations when a citizen has criticized the President, or the govt and arrested. This is not the USSR! At least it wasn’t the last time I looked. I could go on. Gun registry does not stop gun usage, and does not make us safer. It’s merely a tool to get information. The only thing that makes gun usage safer is learning how to use it and be smart about storing it around children or anyone. The NRA is very good with instruction safety and continued education.

    haven’t seen that one yet but but when I went to an appointment today that had several “new” programs outlined on the desk were I had to go to update the sleeve for my ID card. Told them I had no time. As a disabled vet I have had no complaints about the VA until the last few months when I was informed that being on the highest priority list no longer means anything as obama has done away
    with that in favor of treating special needs patients first I asked for a definition as was told to quit wasting their time.

    Oh, Didn’t you know? The government dosen’t want to take our firearms. Obama, Schumer, Feinstein and all of the rest say that they support the 2nd Amendment, haven’t you heard? Yeah, right.

  • Keep reloading, America.

  • Ray Liptak

    “There’s nothing inherently evil about gun locks…”

    No. There’s not. I keep all my guns trigger locked firstly because I have kids and secondly because I’m not important enough for the government to kick down my door. No shortage of guns in Russia, is there?

  • Daniel Gray

    Sigh…Title 18 USC Section 926 (gun control act of 1968) makes this a federal felony punishable by a minimum 20 years in prison to a maximum of 50 years, and or a fine of between 150,000 and 250,000 dollars PER EACH DAY the law is in violation according to federal regulations and statutes. The ONLY people that can make a list is the BATF and even their list cannot be made if said list can or will be used in any way and at any time as a confiscation list. The sheriff of Allegheny County PA (where Pittsburgh is) was almost charged with a federal felony and frog marched out of his office in handcuffs by the BATF agents when he tried this stunt. So why are you worrying about a letter to Vets when they can refuse to reply to this question? I told the doctor it was none of her d**n business what I had in my home, and I was neither admitting nor denying, just that it was none of her business and I refused to answer. I then filed a complaint with the Patient Rep and he Hospital director and threatened both of them that if I ever hear this question being asked in this hospital again, I would have the hospital brought up on charges of invasion of privacy. 6 months later the director was fired and the Patient Rep was told to retire.

    Hold on! Nothing has changed. Trust me on that! When that bs “gun-locks for your safety” come around, circular file. Don’t fall for it just because it is “so sweetly presented”. The style is new but the games the same, as it was so long ago…..obozo ain’t gone yet!

    VA, thanks, but no thanks! We can afford our own gun locks!

    Meanwhile, the Dream Candidate to the Republican Party is nowhere to be found, or allowed to participate … View AmericaIdea for the only GOP 2016 Dream Candidate.

    Care for the military, and care that they perhaps should not go through this? Maybe the Dream of ’16 can assist the situation. Please give vote to the Dream, don’t go elsewhere. You know what else is out there. Many of you don’t have to be reminded. So vote for this candidate instead of the rest.
