The draconian rules at the Veteran’s Administration allow a person to be adjudicated as incompetent based solely on the fact the person needs someone else to manage their finances. The only thing needed is that someone has had a fiduciary appointed for them.
There are many reasons a person would have this. Perhaps they suffered an injury that prevents them from properly managing their money. Perhaps they are forgetful for whatever reason. The reality is just because one needs help with finances does not mean they are incompetent and therefore can’t own a firearm.
Given the serious flaws in our school system it is a wonder any graduates can handle their own finances.
The people the VA determines are unable to own firearms have their names entered into the database used for background checks. This is often done as the result of an administrative procedure and the affected person finds out when the letter comes in the mail. Instead of having a court determine incompetency the person must go to court to prove they are not incompetent after the fact.
It appears now as if the government, led by Obama, is working to keep millions of the elderly from being able to buy a firearm. The Social Security Administration has been working in the dark to craft rules on how to report the same things to the database as the VA. Millions of older Americans have a fiduciary appointed and under the ancient rules this will prevent them from owning firearms. The government will deem them incompetent without the benefit of a court hearing.
This is just one more reason to get rid of Social Security and replace it with private accounts that people actually own.
If the inability to manage finances is sufficient cause to deny firearm ownership then no one in Congress or the White House should ever be allowed to own a firearm. None of them are able to manage money and they publicly demonstrate their incompetence each and every day.
Hell, the same holds true for elected officials at the state and local level in many parts of the country.
But why stop with them? If you need welfare then you have someone managing your finances by paying your bills for you. If that is the case then you should not be allowed to own a firearm.
It is time for the VA to change the rules. It is way past time that incompetence in these cases is determined by the courts and not bureaucrats who are paid bonuses for disarming veterans.
And it is well past time for government to stay out of our lives.
For those who think Obama has given up on disarming the people think again. All tyrants disarm the people before they can ruthlessly control them.
Never surrender, never submit.
And there are a few Republicans who claim to be conservative right along with them.
The time leading up to and during World War II Adolph Hitler engaged in a cultural cleansing. This was in addition to the ethnic cleansing that involved ridding society of undesirable people. These folks were mostly Jewish but there were also Christians, the mentally ill and homosexuals who were sent to concentration camps only to be forced into labor and then exterminated. ISIS is involved in cultural cleansing so if Nazi offends you then the liberals can be the western ISIS…
It is no secret that liberals in this nation want to disarm all people. They can make claims to the contrary but the reality is their idea of common sense gun laws involves making guns illegal and taking them from everyone. Like Hitler, the liberals want all firearms registered so that the government knows who owns the arms. That makes it much easier to confiscate them. You see, once a law is passed our government will send its own storm troopers to take our arms by force.
Once they have taken our means to resist we are at their mercy. They know this. They know that the only way dictators and oppressive governments are successful is when the people are disarmed and ruled with iron fists. Those in office who want to take our arms (it starts with common sense and works to disarming) are no different than the tyrants who have murdered millions of people throughout history.
Hitler’s cultural cleansing campaign was against degenerative art which he believed would cleanse the psyche of the German people. Cleanse them and it is easier to turn them against the undesirable people. Subjugate them and they are too afraid to say anything about what is going on even if they disagree.
Once a culture has been beaten into submission it is easy to do what you desire to the people because they lose the will to resist.
We are at a point of cultural cleansing in our nation. The shooting of nine black people at a church in South Carolina by a racist moron has renewed the fight to remove the Confederate Battle Flag from all aspects of our culture. People decry it as a symbol of hate and intolerance rather than a symbol of times past, a piece of history. The cultural cleansing started as a call for the removal of the flag in South Carolina and rapidly moved to calls for the removal across all states that have that flag flying. This cultural cleansing is a renewal of the same calls for that flag to be removed we see every time a presidential election approaches. Liberals love to use the flag to call Republicans racist and garner votes. As an aside, when Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter used the flag as part of their campaign items liberals supported them.
This time the shooting provided a perfect opportunity for the cleansers to push once again. Never let a good crisis go to waste.
The cultural cleansing has moved from flags to monuments as many politicians are calling for the removal of statues and monuments to the people who fought for the Confederacy. Some businesses like Wal Mart and Amazon have removed all confederate flag items from their shelves and will no longer sell those things.
It has now morphed into suggestions that military posts named after Confederate Generals be renamed. Are you fricking kidding me? Have we devolved into such pussified wimps that the names of military posts offend us?
This is all part of the Alinsky plan. The liberal left and some of its allies on the right are working to disrupt our society and to change it into the Socialist Utopia they have always dreamed of. They take these kinds of issues, redefine the narrative and then pit people against each other over contrived issues so that we are constantly in disarray as they continue to creep into our lives and take over everything we do.
This cultural cleansing is designed to redefine our nation and to piss off a bunch of people who had nothing to do with what happened over 150 years ago.
Be careful folks because as you destroy part our nation’s history and demand things be changed or removed the same thing can happen to other items of our nation’s history that you find no fault with. This is how they pit people against each other and it is working.
Incidentally, Congress is looking to take up the gun control issue again. It is well known by thinking people that none of the gun control measures they are looking to enact (or any for that matter) would have stopped what happened in that church. It was illegal to take a gun there, the gun was illegally obtained for the shooter and it is absolutely illegal to murder people but these did not stop the shooter. Criminals do not obey the law. Gun control is not about guns it is about control.
Hitler knew it and our government knows it.
And once their “common sense” measures fail they will tell us that only a complete ban and confiscation will work. This is their end game.
They are looking for more gun control (and eventual confiscation) and they are engaged in cultural cleansing. How long before the cleansing of the undesirables begins?
Never surrender, never submit.
Pope Francis is off his rocker in many ways and how the Catholics ended up with him is a mystery. His papacy is another thing that makes me happy that I left the Catholic religion many years ago. Perhaps I should rephrase that. I did not leave the church, it left me.
The Pope had another stupid thing to say this past week when he stated that people involved in the arms trade of making weapons can’t really call themselves Christians.
He then went on to say that those who profit from the arms trade (by investing in it) are really no better and, as I read it, can’t be Christians either.
The Vatican has armed guards. They have swords and halberds and they also have modern firearms like Glock and SIG Sauer pistols and Steyr machine pistols as well as submachine guns such as the H&K MP5A3.
So the Vatican has invested in firearms (by purchasing them) which means the Pope can’t be a Christian.
It should come as no surprise that the Catholic leader is a hypocrite. That religion is the one that preaches against abortion and then endorses politicians who support abortion and allow it to be paid for with taxpayer money. This is the religion that refuses to excommunicate Catholic politicians who support items contrary to the rules of the church (like abortion).
This is the same church that covered up the numerous child molestation cases where priests had sex with children.
Yes, the Catholic Church even supported Obamacare and then had to fight in court to keep from following certain parts of the law.
The Pope thinks that arms dealers are merchants of death. This is not true. The firearm is an inanimate object that has many uses. People and countries that use them to murder are the true merchants of death.
Dear Pope, the commandment is Thou shall not murder, not thou shall not kill. Killing is a legal taking of life. David killed with a stone and it was justified. Cain murdered with a rock, it was not.
I know you and the rest of those who follow your every word and think it means something important all believe if we got rid of all these firearms people from around the world would hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
The reality is there will always be evil and all it needs to do harm are people like you who are unwilling to confront it with superior force.
Don’t worry Pope, you have guards to protect you and the sheep in society have us guard dogs to protect them from the wolves.
If that makes us or the people who manufacture arms non-Christian in your eyes, well I imagine we can live with that because you don’t get to define us; it is really not your place to judge. I would recommend you reread Matthew 7:1.
Maybe you should stick to the Catholics and leave the rest of us the hell alone.
Never surrender, never submit.
Some moron shoots up a church and his racist rants are disclosed. The anti-gun liberals, including the chief liberal Obama, come out in force to push for more gun control.
The tactic Obama uses is to pounce on the event as soon as it happens, to invent the story and then to push that story to his political advantage. While the compassionate among us mourn the loss and search for answers and for the details of what happened Obama invents the narrative and plants it in the minds of people so he can push for what he wants.
During a podcast interview Obama had this to say:
He said it’s important to respect that hunting and sportsmanship are important to a lot of gun-owning Americans. “The question is just is there a way of accommodating that legitimate set of traditions with some common-sense stuff that prevents a 21-year-old who is angry about something or confused about something, or is racist, or is deranged from going into a gun store and suddenly is packing, and can do enormous harm.” CBS
There is no evidence that this man bought the gun. It has been reported that he received it as a present so no gun law or increased background check would have stopped him from getting it. If he got it that way it is likely a straw man purchase and that is already ILLEGAL.
Let us assume Obama knows what he is talking about and the man did buy the gun. He had a felony on his record and was on psych meds. He would have been excluded from buying the firearm so if he did then the background check system THAT THE GOVERNMENT SET IN PLACE failed.
It is already against the law for certain people to buy firearms, it is already against the law for people to buy them for others (in certain circumstances) and it is absolutely against the law to murder someone. So what makes any rational person think that some new gee whiz law will suddenly make all people OBEY those laws?
I also point out that the Second Amendment is not about sporting or hunting, it is about the ability to defend this nation from invaders or from a tyrannical government.
Obama is setting the narrative so he can get what he wants and that is gun control. And we must keep in mind that gun control is not about guns it is about control.
Obama and all liberal anti gunners want to control YOU. It is important that they take away your means to resist before they run roughshod over you.
Liberals are cowards and they know it will be easier to control you if they disarm you. These people do not want to try to control you while you have the ability to fight back because they will lose and they know it. We showed that once during the Revolution.
Resist all calls for gun control and realize that the real reason so many people died is because a deranged person went to a place where guns ARE NOT ALLOWED and shot people. The people who obeyed that law are dead.
If any one of them had been armed the results would have been quite different. In reality the guy might not have even attempted. You see cowards only go to fight where people are not armed and are unable to fight back.
This is why liberals want to disarm you before they engage you.
They are cowards.
Never surrender, never submit.
Jun 10, 2015 Second Amendment
Former Maryland State Police Superintendent Marcus Brown was installed as the acting head of the Pennsylvania State Police and waited to be confirmed by the PA Senate. The vote on Monday was not in his favor and he was not confirmed for the job.
Several Republicans crossed the aisle to support Democrats in their vote to confirm but there were enough Republicans left to vote him down 26-22.
Brown is a liberal anti-gun statist who totally supported Martin O’Moron’s unconstitutional gun laws. Brown was in charge of the MSP and oversaw the background checks and the concealed carry permitting process. He toed the party line on issuing permits so people of Maryland were denied their constitutionally protected right to keep and BEAR arms. During Brown’s tenure there was also a months long backlog in approving firearms purchase applications. Many people were waiting 6 or more months in order to get cleared to pick up the firearms they had purchased.
The law allows them to be delivered if the decision by the MSP is not returned in seven days. Most firearms dealers did not do that because Brown’s MSP made it clear that they should not despite the law.
Brown was in an appointed position paid for by the taxpayer. He was unable to honor his oath and follow the Constitution as he was more interested in keeping his head planted firmly in O’Moron’s rectal cavity.
PA Democrat Governor Tom Wolf was informed by Republicans that he should submit a new nominee but it looks like the approval process in PA is a formality or something so Wolf left Brown in the position of acting boss.
Democrats urged Wolf to resubmit Brown’s name but Wolf has not decided whether he will do that.
Marcus Brown should not be in the police force he should be running the security of a communist nation. His name is more appropriate for the kind of policing seen in those kinds of countries.
Hey Marcus, let me put it to you like you did on so many conceal carry permit applications.
Your application has been DENIED.
I guess they could not find good and substantial reason to make you the commissioner.
I know there is a lot of good and substantial reasons not to…
Never surrender, never submit.
