It Begins: Deputies Seize Army Vet’s Firearms Under Obama Gun Control Law

By

Democrats are determined to disarm Americans, and our Founding Fathers warned us that is a major red flag.

Liberals constantly exploit tragic shootings to “prove” gun control is necessary, while conveniently ignoring the fact that criminals don’t obey laws.

The only people affected by these laws are law-abiding citizens, the very one’s our Constitution says should be armed!

Like 70-year-old Vietnam War veteran Don Hall.

Breitbart reports that Hall “was watching television in his Taberg, New York, home when deputies knocked on his door, then entered and confiscated his firearms.”


Hall was told that due to his record of mental illness, he was prohibited from owning firearms.

The 2013 SAFE Act signed under Barack Obama permitted the seizure of personal firearms if there were any complaints regarding the owner’s mental state.

Hall eventually got his guns back after proving to judges that he, in fact, had no record of mental illness. But, as Hall noted, he was “guilty until I could prove myself innocent.”

The Breitbart piece concluded:

This highlights the heart of the problem with adding gun control onto gun control. The body of gun laws poses no hindrance to criminals–who ignore laws–but it does present problems for law-abiding citizens. Such laws create a scenario where a Vietnam War veteran can be sitting in his home, watching TV at 9:30 p.m., only to have sheriff’s deputies knock on the door and ask for his firearms.
