"Vets Rights Are Being Violated" Says Senator

Veterans second amendment rights to bear arms are being violated, according to Senator Richard Burr.

He and 14 other lawmakers have introduced legislation to change that.

Currently, when a Veteran seeks help from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the VA may determine they're unable to manage their own financial affairs and appoint a fiduciary.

When that happens, they are deemed as mentally defective and may be prohibited from purchasing a firearm.

The legislation Burr and others introduced would end that practice.
