    Support S. 3167 - Veterans' Protection Act

    Senator Richard Burr has taken an important step in fighting back
    against the Veterans' Disarmament Act - a gun ban signed by President
    Bush this year which, among other things, disarms military veterans
    who have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He has
    introduced S. 3167, the Veterans Protection Act, which would restore
    the rights of a large number of veterans who have had their rights
    denied for being treated for PTSD.

    The bill, whose full summary title is "A bill to amend title 38,
    United States Code, to clarify the conditions under which veterans,
    their surviving spouses, and their children may be treated as
    adjudicated mentally incompetent for certain purposes," currently has
    18 co-sponsors, including Senator Elizabeth Dole. Let's encourage both
    of them in this fight.

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    * Contact Senator Burr:
    http://burr.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.Home -
    thank him for sponsoring this important bill.

    * Contact Senator Dole:
    http://dole.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=ContactInformation.ContactForm
    - thank her for co-sponsoring this important bill.

    * Pass this message along to your friends in other states and ask
    them to urge their senators to get on board.
