    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Buying Firearms And Being Rated Incompetent.

Question

I was recently rated 100% PTSD and Incompetent and heard from someone if I am deemed incompetent that I can no longer buy firearms because my mental health records have been sent to the FBI.

I wanted to know if anyone on here knew if this is true?

And if it is true how do I get my rights to own a firearm back?

If this is true I'm going to be so very depressed.

Thanks Bro's and Sis's!!

Depends, if your doc says you're incompetent to handle finances this is different and shouldn't affect your right to bear arms.

If he notes you're incompetent as far as judgment and thinking then this might affect your rights. I'm not up on the FBI thing but I thinks that's a bunch of rubbish about your mental health records being sent to the FBI. Also, if this was to happen, the FBI would contact you somehow letting you know you can't own a gun.

Unless you have something in writing (Official letter) telling you your right to own a gun is restricted you should be ok.

I havent cried in years but I know I'm going to cry once someone confirms this. Can't believe what I got myself into knew I should have never trusted the VA and told them I'm crazy.

Yeah I called the VA today to check my status and she said my rating for PTSD has changed from 50% to 100% and Incompetent. I didn't tell them I was suicidal or wanted to kill anyone other than Bin Laden so I think my Incompetence would be like anyone else on here. Has anyone bought a firearm since they got deemed 100% PTSD w/ Incompetence?

Just hearing my name went to the FBI and all that has me all kinds of upset. I don't want to do nothing bad. I'm so down about this.

I would think you could go do a check at any firearm store. There is probably a fee but at least it would clear your mind.

I seriously doubt your on the list but I would check and make sure. They probably declared you incompetent to handle your finances which is more common.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
