are you saying the guy is crazy? I didn't get that at all...only passion in his conviction

Large numbers of Veterans with PTSD are not losing their Second Amendment rights. I know dozens of guys with PTSD and none have lost their gun rights. This willful lying and distortion of the facts is scaring young veterans away from the VA and treatment for their disabilities. A couple of young combat wounded vets i know refused to visit the VA for treatment because they would lose their gun rights: Some idiot on the web told them so. Bull$hit!!!

More lies and distortions debunked:

Can PTSD make some individuals more prone to uncontrolled violence.?
i'm not sure anyone really knows. We do know that vets with PTSD seldom commit mass murder. Young wild eyed nutcases who never served are doing that. Great numbers of veterans do not murder folks. A veteran who is adjudicated a threat to himself and/or others should be reported to NICS: Same as non-vets. The same idiots at WND, Prison Planet and Examiner who make up these lies are opposed to reporting adjudicated dangerous nutcases to NICS: Go figure.

just because someone served during combat and they have seen things and had to do things the normal citizen never will, and the come home with some issues, doesn't mean we need to keep them from owning guns.


my uncle served in Vietnam with the Navy on the rivers in patrol boats. i am pretty sure he saw some action there.

i would pay money to see someone tell him he wasn't allowed to own guns or that they were taking his away.

Obviously you didnt get my point. No PTSD doesn't necessarily mean someone is prone to violence, No I dont think that PTSD is rampant with Vets nor do I know that the person in the thread is safe or unsafe with a weapon. PTSD is a real diagnosis and it challenges many vets, Shell Shock isnt a myth, its a fact of life for many who experience things only a Vet ever would..

Vietnam vets were denied benefits for all too many years, more than a few of them have some serious issues to contend with, a few are good friends of mine and none of them deserve any less rights than any other American. I was joking sort of about the women actually being the ones to make PTSD real in the medical world even if their experiences that got them the diagnosis no where compare to that which a vet that still hears the bullets whizzing by their head even when they are thousands of miles and many years separated from their tormentors.

Its an afront to all the vet does to clasify them less than a citizen after weve taken more from them than anyone should ever ask! I may be a dumb ass but Im not wrong on this one....

well said WebFos.

our veterans have made sacrifices that most will never make in service to our country. they deserve so much more than they get in return for those sacrifices. and also, many made those sacrifices willingly. they wanted to serve our country. and most did so with honor and distinction. many paid with their blood on the battlefield. many died doing so.
