As an employee of the Social Security administration for almost 40 years I dealt with individuals who needed help handling their benefits. These individuals either had problems keeping touch with reality or they could easily be convinced by others to make decisions which may not be in their own best interest. The VA process is basically the same. Decisions were made after interviewing the individual, reviewing the medical data and speaking with family members. It is not a decision made lightly and it is a decision that can be changed. The thought these individuals NEED to own guns is terrifying.
