Department Of Injustice Strikes Again

posted on April 21, 2015

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman wants some answers from Attorney General Eric Holder. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wants to know why, of all the names reported to the “mental defective” category on DOJ’s illegal gun-ban list, nearly all of them are veterans. He also wants to know why Veterans Affairs is reporting individuals who merely need financial assistance managing VA benefits, and he wants to know if NICS is effectively just a national gun-ban list.

 “A veteran or dependent shouldn’t lose their constitutional rights because they need help with bookkeeping,” Grassley wrote in a letter to Holder. “Those veterans should not be required by the Department of Veterans Affairs ‘to prove that they have the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights.’”

In his letter, Grassley demands that the outgoing attorney general respond by April 30. We, too, will be awaiting those answers.
