And smoke it, Larry Pratt. You might have noticed, but I have had it up to here with the Larry Pratt and the GOA using HR 2640 to slander the NRA, as well as just lie outright about the bill itself, calling it the “Veteran’s Disarmament Act”.
Thankfully, Larry Scott at Military.com has the must read editorial on the issue, pointing out quite accurately that HR 2640 will in fact provide a road for veterans who have been disallowed from owning firearms to regain their right to keep and bear arms.
Let’s use some common sense instead of nonsense. If veterans were to lose the right to own firearms, you’d have a lot of unemployed cops. If those who have PTSD were to lose that right, there’d be even more unemployed cops and other first responders, as well. The arguments about a “Veterans Disarmament Act” are, quite simply, ridiculous and illogical.
I strongly encourage you to read the entire article, it’s excellent. It addresses all the points brought up by the Anti-2640 bunch, and shoots them clean out of the sky.
Dealing with this has been frustrating – I am tired of defending a good bill from people that are ostensibly on the same side as I am.
