Tim King Salem-News.comLike other Combat Vets, Pat Kirby has PTSD. The VA says he has to turn in his guns or face prison. This is not a misprint.
(MYRTLE CREEK, OR) - Pat Kirby answered his country's call to arms during the Vietnam War, serving multiple tours, suffering injuries, watching friends die. Today he has a letter from the VA telling him that because his wife takes care of their family finances, he is deemed "incompetent" and for this reason, he has to turn in his guns and relinquish his 2nd Amendment Rights, or face going to prison.
Pat Kirby and Tim King
It's like a bad flashback to the attitudes that led to the creation of Rambo. Veteran discrimination has not been this pronounced in years, it seems the Vietnam Veteran is always asked to take a harder road than those who served both before and after them. Suicide rates of Vietnam Veterans are astronomical, much like their brethren from the current wars. These are all reasons not to humiliate and shame Veterans, of all people, without justified cause.Video here. The video at the story didn't run.
The first video I produced about Pat Kirby and Susan and their efforts to halt this government seizure of basic rights it is tracks, had just accumulated over 23,000 views, when YouTube pulled it from our site, and then, quite oddly, re-added the video within only half an hour, but when it went back up there were zero views. What kind of games are taking place? Others have pointed to the new video not holding visitor counts, I have been told the number has gone backward.So, the VA is sending threatening letters to our veterans to disarm them.
I guess our "leaders" are really getting scared of what will happen when their socialist paradise crashes down, and there are any Americans left with both weapons and the knowledge to use them effectively...
