CCRKBA Backs Sen. Coburn's Opposition to Tenets of H.R. 327
Date:9/11/2007

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today agreed with Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn that there is a serious flaw in H.R. 327 -- the so-called Joshua Omvig Veterans' Suicide Prevention Act -- that could ultimately prevent military veterans from exercising the Second Amendment rights they have fought to defend.

Senator Coburn recalled in an open letter on Sept. 5 that this records sharing was 'an effort to prohibit the purchasing of firearms by veterans who had been diagnosed as having mental health concerns at one point in their lives.' Anybody who's ever seen combat might have had some stressful moments, but that's no reason to deny them their constitutional rights."

Going through a screening ought to be up to the individual and his or her family, not some bureaucrat, and certainly not a one-size-fits-all legislative mandate."

"Democrats have criticized Senator Coburn over his stubbornness," Gottlieb noted, "which suggest
