Editor’s Note: Vets who say the wrong thing at the VA get that info turned over to the FBI… now they want them to tell the VA officials how many guns they have so they can have gun locks sent to their homes? If these officials really just cared about vets having protected guns, they would leave the locks in a location at the VA for people to anonymously grab a few. This is obviously something very, very different.
Former United States Navy Veteran, Certified National Recruiter, and Commander of the Elm Grove Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Vernon Anderson told Breitbart News exclusively that the Department of Veteran’s Affairs’ Gun Lock push is “another Obama back door gun control measure.”
According to an earlier NPR report noting veteran suicide statistics, “The VA is trying to help with a program that offers gun locks to veterans for free. The thinking is that if they lock their guns up they might not reach for them in the spur of the moment.”
But many critics argue this is a government form used to get veterans to identify if they own a firearm, creating a federal registry. Anderson supplied three letters he received in a packet from the VA. One is titled “Veterans Crisis Line Public Fact Sheet” detailing the VA help line. Another document is a gun safety pamphlet, providing gun safety facts and statistics. The third document is a lock order form to be returned to the VA once it is completed with paid postage supplied by the VA. It requires the veteran’s name, address and exact number of gunlocks needed…
Oliva mocked, “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.” Oliva writes.
