‘The View’ Blasts GOP Efforts to Repeal Gun Ban for Military Veterans
by AWR Hawkins 16 Mar 2017
During the March 16 airing of ABC’s The View, host Sarah Haines said she is “really disturbed” by House Republican efforts to repeal the gun ban for military veterans.
On March 13 Breitbart Newsreported that GOP leaders were eyeing a repeal of the gun ban, which is structured in a manner that is very similar to the recently repealed Social Security gun ban. Both bans were designed in a way that strips individuals of their Second Amendment rights without due process and both target the most vulnerable of Americans–those on disability who are suffering from mental duress or some degree of mental illness.
After the Social Security gun ban was finalized in December 2016, Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science professor Jeffrey Swanson warned that it targeted “the vulnerable” rather than the dangerous. His warning was based on the fact that a mental health moniker is very broad, covering everything from depression to severe mental illness. Writing in The Washington Post, Swanson said, “The mental health conditions in question might range from moderate intellectual disabilities to depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.”
The clear takeaway from Swanson’s column was that many Social Security beneficiaries with minor–or even temporary–mental conditions were going to lose their rights along with people who had more extensive problems.
This same concern surrounds the gun ban for military veterans. For this reason, House Committee on Veteran Affairs chairman Phil Roe (R-TN-1) is pushing the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act to repeal the ban and protect military veterans’ Second Amendment rights.
But the hostesses of the The View are troubled by the GOP effort to repeal the ban. Haines said, “One thing that really disturbed me yesterday was a bill that’s going to the floor in the House this week that’s called the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act. Not many people can argue with what this is; this is about mentally ill veterans that have been deemed ‘mentally incompetent.’”
Joy Behar interjected, “Well. they have PTSD, a lot of them.”
Haines concurred and then said, “That is why 14 retired admirals have come out to say please do not pass this bill.”
Haines referenced the Social Security gun ban–without actually calling it by name–by saying the gun ban for military veterans “is the second one allowing mentally ill people [to get guns].”
Following more conversation, Whoopi Goldberg repeated the #FakeNews mantra, saying, “This is the second time they are saying it is okay for people with issues [to get guns].” After some back and forth, Goldberg added, “When you say you care about mental health issues, you cannot then turn around say, ‘Let’s give him or her a gun.’”
Throughout the conversation, Haines and Behar spoke negatively of the NRA and warned that the NRA was behind the effort to repeal the ban and protect the Second Amendment rights of military veterans. None of the hostesses pointed out that the admirals who signed a letter opposing repeal of the ban did so under the auspices of Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, Veterans Coalition for Common Sense.
Jedediah Bila suggested reading the bill to see what it actually says.

    DICK ACT of 1902 . . . CAN’T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN) THE TRUMP CARD ENACTED BY CONGRESS FURTHER ASSERTING THE SECOND AMENDMENT AS UNTOUCHABLE

    NOVEMBER 29, 2016

    The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities.

    The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

    The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders.

    The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard.

    Attorney General Wickersham advised President Taft, “the Organized Militia (the National Guard) can not be employed for offensive warfare outside the limits of the United States.”

    The Honorable William Gordon, in a speech to the House on Thursday, October 4, 1917, proved that the action of President Wilson in ordering the Organized Militia (the National Guard) to fight a war in Europe was so blatantly unconstitutional that he felt Wilson ought to have been impeached.

    During the war with England an attempt was made by Congress to pass a bill authorizing the president to draft 100,000 men between the ages of 18 and 45 to invade enemy territory, Canada. The bill was defeated in the House by Daniel Webster on the precise point that Congress had no such power over the militia as to authorize it to empower the President to draft them into the regular army and send them out of the country.

    The fact is that the President has no constitutional right, under any circumstances, to draft men from the militia to fight outside the borders of the USA, and not even beyond the borders of their respective states. Today, we have a constitutional LAW which still stands in waiting for the legislators to obey the Constitution which they swore an oath to uphold.
