A couple of months ago, I wrote about how the military is lobbying Congress to allow commanders to collect information on the private ownership of firearms by troops. The issue hasn’t gone away. In fact, it’s gaining steam within the NDAA being debated as I type this.

Gun Owners of America recently sent the following out to its membership and I want to share it here because it’s important. If you are in the military and you believe in your second amendment right to own guns and you also believe in a right to privacy (yes, even in the military) this is something you need to pay attention to. This isn’t one of those conspiracy things that seems to kooky to be true. It’s happening and Senator Chuck Schumer is the one pushing for it.

Over this past year, we have alerted you to the dangers of last year’s National Defense Authorization Act (or NDAA for short).

The NDAA could impact all Americans, including gun owners, by allowing them to be indefinitely detained without trial, based on simple membership in certain pro-gun groups or because of particular firearm-related activities.

But in addition to its problems with indefinite detention without trial, this year’s NDAA also contains, in the House version, a provision that would allow military psychiatrists and commanders to question large numbers of servicemen about the firearms they own.

This could open the door for the psychiatrists to send the names of active servicemen to the NICS system in West Virginia. If this were to happen, tens of thousands of soldiers could permanently lose their Second Amendment rights.
