Our Veteran Heroes Are Under Attack...By Our OWN Government!

In every state in the United States no one can be declared incompetent to administer their own affairs without due process of law and that usually requires a judicial hearing with evidence being offered to prove to a judge that the person is indeed incompetent. This is a requirement of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that states that no person shall “…be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”.
But this hasn't stopped Obama! Nope. Our tyrannical DICTATOR and his crew has once again gone beyond his and their scope of powers and are now illegally disarming our heroes! And if we allow this to stand, it won't be long before it is the rest of us! (Just like with Obama's murder of a US citizen and no one stopped him, so now we have drones who can kill us too!)
Joel McDurmon further wrote:
How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.
What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?
That makes is sound like something right from a documentary on a tyrannical dictatorship somewhere in the world. Yet, as I write this I have a copy of such a letter right in front of me. It is being sent by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of America’s heroes. In my capacity as Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) I have been contacted by some of these veterans and the stories I am getting are appalling.
The letter provides no specifics on the reasons for the proposed finding of incompetency; just that is based on a determination by someone in the VA.
That's it! SOMEONE, in the VETERANS AFFAIRS division, has unilaterally decided to be judge, jury and executioner in deciding to take away our country's heroes 2nd amendment right to bear arms without due process of law! They are also taking away their right to manage their own affairs and appointing someone else to take care of them, AT THE EXPENSE OF THE VETERAN!!!! We cannot let this happen! These veterans have already paid a very high price for our freedom. They do not deserve to have their country turn on them and take away those same freedoms that they have paid for, much more than the rest of us have.  They have done their duty in standing up for us, so now it's OUR duty to stand up for them!


Write your senators, your representatives, your governors and tell them....our veterans and heroes deserve their constitutional rights to not be taken away by our government, and we Americans MUST demand that only due process of law can decide if they are competent enough to take care of their own affairs! 
 Here are Maine's contacts:

Governor LePage

Chellie Pingree - 1st District US Congresswoman

Michael Michaud - 2nd District US Congressman
Susan Collins - US Senator
Angus King - US Senator
Maine Senators
**********************************

Write your governor, reps & senators folks... I did! You can use my letter as a template if you wish!

I am writing to you today to tell you that some of your constituents are under attack by our own government.  A letter, from the V.A., has been sent to some of our veterans and heroes informing them that because of a physical or mental condition, the government is proposing to rule that they are incompetent to handle their own financial affairs, that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle their affairs for them at their expense and that a determination of incompetency will prohibit them from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If they knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, they may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).

As a representative of the state of  Maine’s veterans, this is of an utmost importance that you look into this most egregious violation of their constitutional 2nd Amendment right to own and bear arms and 5th Amendment right that states that no person shall “…be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law"!

In every state in the United States no one can be declared incompetent to administer their own affairs without due process of law and that usually requires a judicial hearing with evidence being offered to prove to a judge that the person is indeed incompetent.  So it is beyond the scope of the V.A. to unilaterally decide this without bringing this to a court of law within the veterans’ jurisdiction. It is your civic duty, as these veterans elected governmental leaders, to protect them from such violations and demand that the government cease and desist these egregious actions immediately!
Thank you.
