Like other Combat Vets, Pat Kirby has PTSD. The VA says he has to turn in his guns or face prison.

(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.

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.

After returning from military service in Vietnam, Pat Kirby married his wife, Susan, and had a family. Pat lived what so many call The American Dream.
It went pretty well, considering that Pat suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) which, according to Dr. Phillip Leveque, who as a Physician treated approximately 1,000 PTSD Veterans at his practice, "Goes hand in hand with multiple combat tours -- years of service with a rifle in your hand."

Most Americans agree that those who serve their country under the most dangerous conditions, deserve their nation's gratitude. That system of belief is falling to the wayside.

As I have detailed in previous reports, elements of the federal government have been spending billions and billions finding ways to cause states to relinquish private information, specifically mental health records, and records for minor drug offenses. The govt. is using the information specifically to deny gun ownership.

Pat Kirby and his wife Susan are at the forefront of a national event and they are supported by large numbers of well equipped Americans who want to preserve the right to bear arms and the overall rights of Veterans who served their country with distinction, men like Pat Kirby.
