BETRAYAL: Petraeus Joins Hillary In Gun Control Push

First let me say, I have absolutely no problem with getting veterans the help they need and most Americans would agree. Our soldiers have been neglected for far too long and our current healthcare system hasn’t done them any favors when it comes to anything, including suicide . According to Veterans Affairs, it was found that a firearm was used in the 70 percent of suicides among male service members between 2001-2011, which is a legitimate concern. But not a big enough concern that should allow the stripping of an entire nation of their personal rights, one that PROTECTS them from a TYRANNICAL government.

All Petraeus is, is Hillary in men’s clothing and Trump needs to stay far away.

TH had this to report:

Gen. David Petraeus may be on the short list to be our next secretary of state, but his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, led to him being convicted of mishandling classified information; Broadwell had access to journals of Petraeus that contained sensitive material. I’m not so sure he’s the best pick to lead the State Department. Moreover, isn’t mishandling classified information exactly what we’re trying to avoid and what we slammed Clinton for? Well, another venture Gen. Petraeus is diving into is gun control policy (via CNN):

Retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control.The two announced on Friday that they were launching Veterans Coalition for Common Sense to encourage elected leaders to “do more to prevent gun tragedies.” The group will feature veterans from every branch of the military who are urging lawmakers to toughen gun laws, the organization said in a news release.

“As service members, each of us swore an oath to protect our Constitution and the homeland. Now we’re asking our leaders to do more to protect our rights and save lives,” said Kelly, the husband of former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a group that advocates for tougher gun laws.
