U.S. Gov’t Going After Vets’ Guns

• FBI, VA, HHS, BATFE collude on scheme to steal guns from veterans.

By Ronald L. Ray —

In an effort to disarm millions of United States citizens without due process of law, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Veteran Affairs (VA) are unconstitutionally employing Mafia-type tactics to keep wide segments of society from purchasing or owning guns, in spite of the Constitution’s protections. But no old scrap of parchment ever held back an army of bureaucratic bandoleros. Soon the Social Security Administration (SSA) will join the gang of thugs.

According to reports by conservative news and opinion website The Daily Caller on April 21, 2015 and July 21, 2015, although the VA supposedly does not reveal veterans’ medical records without their consent, the agency has been colluding at least since February 2012 in a duplicitous FBI scheme to take guns away from a significant segment of the country’s more than 21.8 million veterans, who swore to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Apparently that “domestic” part worries the tyrants in Washington.



 

Approximately 9 million veterans are enrolled in the VA healthcare system, and all of them are at risk of losing their firearms. It only takes one little admission to a VA employee that one is feeling a little down, for instance, or mentioning that one’s spouse handles the finances, and the veteran can then be reported to the FBI as an alleged danger to society because of “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition or disease.”

All of this happens in the bureaucratic shadows and nearly never as a result of a judicial or administrative hearing, violating the right to due process of law. Those veterans and their relatives fortunate enough to receive notice of the impending theft of their rights must then try to prove that they are competent. But not all are notified—and they nevertheless are judged guilty until proven innocent.

Still, the VA has a heart for those who have fought and bled in wars fomented by predatory international banksters and mass-murdering defense contractors. A veteran can “buy back” his gun rights by surrendering the VA benefits he
earned through military service to his country.

“This is simply unbelievable,” writes U.S. Army veteran and Constitutional attorney Michael Connelly, executive director of the United States Justice Foundation. “On the one hand the VA and the FBI have found veterans to be mentally ill and too dangerous to be allowed to own firearms, while on the other hand allowing these allegedly dangerous people to buy their firearm rights back. This is illegal and is called extortion.”

Some 177,000 veterans in the VA system have been entered into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and are prevented from purchasing firearms. Even if they appeal successfully, the FBI apparently rarely removes them from the list of prohibited persons.

Worse, the FBI and BATFE can threaten veterans and their families with armed invasion of their homes if they do not voluntarily surrender their guns and ammunition. The BATFE, which was heavily involved in the government-run false-flag operations at Waco and Oklahoma City, also colludes with the FBI to suppress public knowledge of these vicious attacks on Americans’ rights by claiming that “inter-agency or intra-agency memorandums or letters” are somehow exempt from disclosure, unless another federal agency sues for the information.





 

According to the Los Angeles Times, the SSA is also now entering the gun confiscation business. Approximately 2.7 million Americans are on Social Security due to some form of mental illness. Even if they are not a risk to public safety, they face loss of their rights and property without a trial.

Like the VA, HHS, following an executive order from Obama, violates the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) law, which protects the privacy of individuals’ medical records.

Connelly writes: “It is releasing the records to the FBI of anyone who has ever told their physician they were feeling depressed, even if never treated, and anyone who has taken certain drugs for things like PTSD, ADD or ADHD, among others.”

Moreover, he adds, “[BATFE] is issuing new regulations” to take away gun rights forever from anyone, even children, “ever sent by a judge to be examined by a psychiatrist or psychologist.”

But small pockets of resistance are forming against the jackbooted federales. In Priest River, Idaho, approximately 100 people, including state Representative Heather Scott and Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, protested publicly against the VA’s declaration to veteran John Arnold that he allegedly now cannot legally purchase or own firearms.

Let us be clear. The federal government’s Stalinist gun confiscation programs are not about public safety and are not tied only to Democrat administrations. No mere election will ever stop them. They are about disarming the public, in order to ensure the New World Order’s reign of terror. What will you do to keep that from happening?
