The Left’s Next Big Gun Grab May be Veterans
By Kevin Batts ll
Editors Note: In this Op-ed Kevin goes into his sneaking suspicions about this latest gun grab from the left. Kevin a disabled vet himself has had to deal with severe PTSD. Having to deal with the misconceptions associated with this mental condition Kevin understands first-hand how the power of these common misconceptions can be used to take away veterans rights.
Democrats have been trying to disarm ‘We the people’ for quite some time. Their strategy has vacillated from major anti-gun laws to incremental so-called ‘common sense’ steps. They use their puppets in the media, entertainers and so on to promote their nefarious goal of complete gun confiscation. A lot has been said about the latest move on guns by the president. Most of this attention has been paid to the expanded background checks and new requirements on low volume dealers. A key portion of the anti-gun narrative that hasn’t been paid much attention to is the attack on those individuals receiving social security benefits.
I believe this facet of their attack is a trial balloon for their ultimate goal, disarming veterans diagnosed with PTSD. As a veteran who has had to deal with the setbacks of severe PTSD, I’ve become very cognitive of the meme that has been created by the media and Hollywood elite to portray people like me as mentally unstable, short fused, close minded and other negative characterizations. The left has always had an almost open disdain for those of us who serve in general. Gone are the days of leftist spitting on soldiers. This sort of activity would be rejected by the patriotic American majority. The left would like nothing more than to disarm American veterans.
