Crane Amendment to Protect Veterans’ 2nd Amendment Rights Passes House

Today, an amendment offered by Rep. Eli Crane (R-AZ) to the Fiscal Year 2025 Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies appropriations bill was successfully adopted by a bipartisan majority.

Rep. Crane’s amendment clarifies that any veteran who was reported to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) by a VA fiduciary was done so incorrectly in violation of their constitutional rights.

It also forces the VA Secretary to instruct the Attorney General to remove these veterans from the NICS list.

“I’m encouraged to see Congress refusing to turn a blind eye to the two-hundred-and-sixty-thousand veterans who have been wrongfully submitted to the FBI’s corrupt system. President Biden and his Administration have shown they would have no problem moving forward to disrespect the Constitution and strip veterans of their 2nd Amendment rights,” said Rep. Eli Crane. “If this Administration is willing to do this to veterans of our Armed Forces, they will do this to the rest of America.
