Objection to exempting veterans from "AW Ban"
Story here. S. 150, the "assault gun ban," has an exemption for LEOs and retired LEOs. A motion was made to add in military veterans, and Sen. Feinstein objects: why, veterans might have PTSD (which she appears to think only came about during the Iraq war). We're in the best of hands.
As I pointed out in my written testimony, if an LEO has mental issues so significant that he cannot do his job, he is given disability retirement. Such a retiree would be exempt from the ban and could possess "assault guns," even while ordinary citizens are covered by it. The only sense I can make of this is that the chiefs of police, etc., who are supporting the ban would only do so if they were assured it would never apply to them, even after they step down.
