    BE Careful What You Tell The VA

    I can't prove, or disprove this but, sounds real to me.




    From a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer:�

    I had a doctors appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out
    � something very interesting that I would like to pass along. While going
    � through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the
    � exam, three questions:�

    1. Did I feel stressed?�

    2. Did I feel threatened?�

    3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?�

    The nurse then informed me, that if I had answered yes to any of the
    � questions, I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone
    � into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland
    � Security. Looks like they are going after the vets first.�

    Other gun people like retired law enforcement will probably be next. Then
    � when they go after the civilians, what argument will they have? Be
    � forewarned and be aware.�

    The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun
    � owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun owner veteran or not,
    � you've been warned.�

    If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very
    � cautious about what you say and to whom.�

    Rumor has it, they're all crazy. So, no need to ask them.

    it's not just the VA doctors, you family doctor will ask the same questions.

    The real problem is they (the doctors or Nurses) will ask your kids if there are guns in the home.

    I would strongly recommend you talk to your children about blabbing if there are firearms in the house.

    We all feel stressed at times. If you answer yes to 3 maybe you shouldn't be carrying.

    Those are typical questions they would ask in trying to determine if a patient is suffering from PTSD

    Homeland Security doesnt issue CCW permits, the States do

    I can almost guarantee this is just another poorly conceived urban legend email cooked up by some fear monger.


    Its scary to think there is probably someone out there that believes every one of those that they get

    If you deliver oil or propane you get fast tracked to a carry permit.

    you might be in for a surprise, on a different forum (a gun forum) this subject has been discussed at length, many Doctors are trying to determine if children are at risk from firearms in the home, if they find ANY indication there is a issue they will report it to authorities, who as you can imagine have no problem with revoking a permit.

    Just be aware that there are authorities out there that don't believe you are a responsible enough to own a firearm and are more than willing to TAKE your property.

    Yeah, like everything you read on the internet must be true.
    Obama has said virtually nothing about guns, either way.

    Doctors have to call the DMV and have your licensed pulled if they think you have a condition that could be dangerous while driving.
    So what?
    Ya wanna be run over by some old geezer too stupid not to hang up his car keys?

    I think this is the kind of thing thats gets people fired up. In poll after poll Americans think that the RKBA (Right to Keep and Bare Arms) is a RIGHT, not a privilege
    and everytime some dim-witted government official says we're going to sign a UN treaty, that upsets Americans
