Last week, Obama announced a series of sweeping executive actions that aim to take away guns from hardworking Americans. Now, a group of patriots are fighting back after Obama’s government tried to strip an elderly veteran of his Second Amendment rights.
According to American News, it all started when the Veteran Affairs office sent a letter to Idaho resident and veteran John Arnold informing him that he can no longer possess firearms. When his fellow northern Idaho residents heard about this, they decided to help Arnold by taking a stand.
The group of patriotic protesters was led by Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler and Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who called what they were doing an act of “defiance against tyranny.”
“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho,” Wheeler told reporters. “This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”
After hearing about the protest, the VA tried to backtrack by saying they don’t have the power to confiscate guns. They did, however, admit to sending Arnold a letter.
