Posting by Request: Fighting the VA

The original subject of this message was The VAs abuse of the fiduciary program, and the denial of veterans 2nd Amendment Rights under the Constitution of the United States of America.  It is a personal appeal from a friend of mine, Tim Heald.  You can follow Tim at

As many of you know I have bee struggling with the VA over the fiduciary program and the 2nd Amendment. Specifically over the lies they are telling vets that are added to the fiduciary program. I have been unable to ascertain who is even responsible, much less have my grievances addressed.  As such I've decided to go outside the VA to attempt to rectify the situation. Today I contacted the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. This is what I sent them through Facebook, email and the form on their web site:

Gentlemen and woman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs,

My name is Timothy Heald. I am a 100% disabled veteran, a prior service Infantryman, Paratrooper and Long Range Surveillance Senior Scout Observer.  I served in the Army and the Army National Guard for a total of 8 years, with 2 deployments. I ETS'd from service in Feb. 2006.

I recently received a letter from the DVA informing me that I had been found incompetent to handle my funds, and had been assigned a fiduciary. While I disagree with this decision, that is not the primary cause of my decision to write to you today.

My motivation for instigating this discussion is located in the 4th paragraph of the letter I received notifying me of this decision. That paragraph states:

"As we advised you previously , the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act prohibits you from purchasing, possessing, receiving or transporting a firearm or ammunition based upon our determination that you are incompetent to handle your VA funds. You may be fined and/or imprisoned if you knowingly violate this law."
