HR 1181 — would undo the Veterans Administration Process that leads to some military veterans being put on the prohibited gun purchaser list. The bill would also remove more than 170,000 names from the existing list.


Every day, 22 U.S. Veterans commit suicide; double the rate for the civilian population.

The majority of these suicides are committed with guns.

To help keep veterans safe, for almost 20 years, the VA has submitted records of vets it deems mentally incompetent (following a judicial review) to the National Background Check System (NICS).

This system includes a process for the veteran to challenge the mental competence determination both before and after the determination and record submission.

The current system protects our vets and protects our citizens . We should keep it in place.
