The Million Veterans Program is a voluntary research program funded by the VA that is supposedly designed to study veterans' genetics and health, writes attorney Michael Connelly, the executive director of the United States Justice Foundation
warns that the veterans "are asked to not only provide information on their physical health, but also their mental and emotional health, and that of their family members."
The request is significant, he contends, because of the VA's distribution of letters to certain veterans, as WND was first to report, warning they could be declared incompetent, assigned an advocate to handle their affairs and stripped of their 2nd Amendment rights.
The letters are the target of Connelly's lawsuit.
said much of the information the Million Veterans Program wants is "similar to what the VA is using to have veterans declared incompetent to handle their own financial affairs and then have their names placed on the NCIS list by the FBI
so the veterans cannot own or purchase firearms due to a 'mental defect.'"
"As a veteran and constitutional lawyer I find this very troubling," he
that if the government restricts Social Security recipients, there will be other targets soon.
