This letter from the VA revoking Second Amendment rights based on a PTSD diagnosis was sent to me by a reader and appears to be legitimate. I don’t recall ever seeing this type of revocation being challenged in the courts. As the decision is a bureaucratic one, not one made via due process through the courts, a challenge other than the appeal process they describe might hold promise . . .
The point here is that the VA shouldn’t have the power to unilaterally make this decision without judicial oversight. The existence of an appeals process is not, in my opinion, sufficient due process. I don’t know how the letter was delivered. Was it properly served as a legal document? Lawyers, please feel free to enlighten us.
