A Veteran in Idaho was sent a letter from the Department of Veteran Affairs informing him that they were coming to pick up his guns.
John Arnold, 70, who recently had a stroke had been rehabilitating at the local VA hospital. While filling out the paperwork, John accidentally checked a tiny little box that then put his freedom in jeopardy.
When the Veteran checked the box saying he was financially incompetent, he was on the verge of becoming another victim of Obama’s gun grab. According to the VA and the Obama administration, if you are financially incompetent then you cannot buy, sell or even possess firearms.
John was shocked when he got the letter and told his good friend Ranger Rick. The news spread on social media around the small Pries River community until something incredible happened.
On the day that the Government was coming to take the guns, dozens of people showed up to support a Veteran and a person in their community. As the crowd gathered and grew, no official came that day to pick up the guns.
“A couple days ago it was going to be me sitting here with Jon and today it’s quite a few folks. It’s veterans taking care of veterans,” said Ranger Rick, John’s friend and one of the people who helped spread the message.
Since the incredible showing of support for the veteran, the VA has reached out to John. They didn’t show up the day all the people were there and now want to help “correct the mistake”.
Obama may want to take guns away from Veterans, but with good Americans like John Arnold, Ranger Rick and their friends, Obama is going to have a hard time collecting.
