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.

    If you’re to defend the 2nd Amendment, defend it all! Including the part “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” Therefore, BAN ALL GUN LAWS AS THEY ARE INFRINGEMENTS!
    Defend also the DICK Act of 1902, passed into law in 1903, which was made to enhance the 2nd Amendment, and enforce that “NO LAWS BE MADE TO HINDER THE RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS TO KEEP AND BEAR/BARE ARMS!”

  • Will contact my Congressmen to support it. Am 100% over this whole debate. Last night Sen. Bernie Sanders defended his stance to disallow victims of gun violence from suing manufacturers and every analyst said he lost that argument. WTF? It’s called legal precedent! If allowed EVERY SINGLE incident of gun violence will result in a lawsuit, even when a police officer is involved.
