Legislation would block feds from disarming veterans and senior citizens.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced a bill today designed to protect the due process rights of senior citizens and veterans who have been unfairly blocked from purchasing firearms as a result of the flawed federal background check system.
The legislation is entitled “The Protecting Gun Rights and Due Process Act.”
Dr. Paul explained that the bill requires adjudication which would entail “findings by a juidical officer or court, and the individual receives notice to participate with counsel” as explained in this press release.
The bill essentially requires federal agencies to adhere to due process before revoking anyone’s second amendment rights.
“I refuse to stand idly by while the Obama administration unilaterally strips away gun rights from our nation’s veterans and seniors,” Paul said. “The Protecting Gun Rights and Due Process Act will provide necessary protection for gun-owning Americans, and ultimately ensure that the Second Amendment is not infringed upon.”
Additionally the bill would mandate the Attorney General conduct yearly reviews of the names in the NICS database to ensure that their due process rights were upheld, with those who were not adjudicated having their rights restored.
Pro-Second Amendment organizations such as Gun Owners of America and the National Association of Gun Rights have supported the legislation, according to a statement from Paul’s office. Source
As leftist regressives coupled with globalist power-brokers continue to attack the second amendment, patriots like Senator Paul have intensified their efforts to protect our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
