Just got this from Grass Root NC - pass it on. Richard Grass Roots North Carolina, P.O. Box 10684, Raleigh, NC 27605 919-664-8565, www.grnc.org, GRNC Alert Hotline: (919) 562-4137 GRNC Alert 08-02-08: 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.
