Obama Threatened to Take Away a Veteran’s Guns, But He Didn’t Expect THIS Outcome!

A couple weeks ago we wrote about how the Fed is trying take away the 2nd Amendment rights of  social security recipients — and targeting veterans.

The regulation in question basically claims that anyone who has assistance filing their social security paperwork or getting payments set up is not competent enough to do their own finances and therefore, is not competent enough to own a firearm.

John Arnold, a military veteran, had a stroke last year, was threatened by the government based on Barack Obama’s new law. He got a notice suggesting he wasn’t competent to have firearms on his hips or in his house.

The AP has more.

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran’s house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man’s weapons.

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.

The protest -spearheaded by Scott- attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold’s guns, and Republican Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a “defiance against tyranny.”

“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho,” Wheeler said. “This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”

Scott read a letter from the VA confirming the confiscation was indeed planned. She posted about it on her Facebook page, a post that prompted the rally to defend the man’s rights. 

Here is the update a few days later after the VA didn’t show up to take the veteran’s guns:
