Senate Dems Defend Administration’s Right To Take Guns Away From Veterans…

“We’re not asking for anything big,” Mr. Coburn said Thursday evening on the Senate floor. “We’re just saying that if you’re going to take away the Second Amendment rights … they ought to have it adjudicated, rather than mandated by someone who’s unqualified to state that they should lose their rights.”

The late-night tussle served to pick at the scab of the ongoing debate over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s bid to reform the chamber’s filibuster rules to place limits on the minority party’s ability to hold up debate on legislation, however.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, objected to Mr. Coburn’s proposal once he found out it was part of a package of amendments to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act the body was to vote on.

“I love our veterans; I vote for them all the time, they defend us,” Mr. Schumer said. “But if you are mentally ill, whether you’re a veteran or not, just like if you’re a felon, if you’re a veteran or not, and you have been judged to be mentally infirm, you should not have a gun.”

After a similar plea from Sen. Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, and a warning from Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, that the move could embolden Democrats’ push for filibuster reforms, Mr. Coburn eventually backed off.

    Isn’t it already illegal to have a gun if you are mentally incompetent? What about knives? Flammable liquids? Isn’t this just a ploy to justify taking all guns away from all veterans because all you would have to do then is say all veterans have endured mental strain to unusual levels and that therefore they should not be trusted with guns… because they of all people know how to use them properly! No, I hate this hidden agenda crap, I have a 2nd amendment right so that I can defend against tyranny, against violence against me and my house, and to defend my neighbor if need be. I can do more damage with five bucks worth of gasoline than I can with one gun, believe me! Why isn’t gasoline licences and controlled? Because those who are filthy rich got that way from selling that as a main source of energy… i.e. JD Robafeller.
    VOTE NO on this kind of crap legislator, and know we are watching closely, you will be voted OUT if you allow this!
