Halfway there. Now, we have to get it through the Senate.
Rehberg Measure to Protect Second Amendment Rights for Vets Clears House of Representatives
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today praised the House for passing his Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act as a part of a larger piece of vets-related legislation. Rehberg's bill, which was included in H.R.2349, protects veterans gun rights unless they are determined to be a danger to themselves or others by a judicial authority.
“This vote marks a significant legislative victory for America’s vets,” said Rehberg, a member of the Congressional Military Families Caucus. “I hope the Senate will quickly pass this bill so we can get this to the President as soon as possible for his signature. This issue is too important for political delays and partisan games.”
“Thanks to the efforts and leadership of Rep. Rehberg, members of our Armed Forces who risked life and limb in defense of our country are one step closer to not being denied their Second Amendment freedoms just because they’ve been assigned a fiduciary by the Department of Veterans Affairs to handle their financial affairs. These are good, honest men and women who aren't a danger to themselves or to others, and it is wrong to deny them their constitutional freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “NRA is grateful to every member of Congress who voted to end this gross injustice.”
