A bill entitled ”Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act”, proposed by Montana congressman Denny Rehberg, protects veterans’ benefits and gun rights of former service members and has passed the key House Committee.
The House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs reviewed the bill that primarily protects gun rights of former service members unless a judge declares the guns a danger to themselves or others. The bill received a thumbs-up.
Rehberg was quoted by a news source as saying, “Protecting our Constitutional rights is one of the most important functions the federal government undertakes, all the more so for the veterans who risked their lives in defense of those rights.” Rehberg went on to say, “There are people in Washington who will stop at nothing to take away our gun rights. They’re stacking the Supreme Court, they’re trying to change the laws and they’re using unelected bureaucrats to do it.”
The Act is backed by the National Rifle Association, according to AmmoLand.com. Also endorsing the bill is the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars. The bill includes additional protection against the loss of right to possess firearms by former U.S. service members. Many may remember a similar bill from four years ago known as the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007. Today’s Act is a continuation of the one from 2007.
