 Restoring Veterans’ Second Amendment right:

Currently, when the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) names a fiduciary to assist a veteran with benefit payments, the VA will then report the veteran to the National Criminal Instant Background Check System (NICS), also known as the gun ban list. When placed on this list, a veteran is unable to own or purchase a gun, being stripped of their Second Amendment right for virtually no reason. It’s absurd that our veterans are subject to this unjust scrutiny, and that they have been required to fight for what should be a constitutionally protected Second Amendment right. Our service members have sacrificed so much to protect our rights, and it’s critical that we ensure their rights are being protected.
This week, Senator Ernst, Senators Chuck Grassley and Joe Manchin (D-WV) in introducing the bi[artisan Veterans’ Second Amendment Rights Restoration Act of 2018 to do exactly that.
