EXCLUSIVE: Doug Jones Supports Stripping Guns From Veterans

Big League Politics confronted Alabama’s Interim Senator Doug Jones asking about his support for the Fix NICS gun control proposal. Immediately after stating that he supports the proposal, he began to backtrack after being asked about how the Fix NICS bill strengthens Obama-era regulations that led towards the removal of gun rights from an estimated 260,000 veterans.

Watch the video below:

The Fix NICS bill is a compromise piece of legislation that would force states to report certain mental health and criminal records to the National Instant Check System that would lead towards those individuals being barred from buying or owning guns. This system has been abused most famously to bar veterans from owning guns.

According to Gun Owners of America, the Fix NICS bill is a strong expansion of the regulations put in place that led towards veterans being barred from owning guns. In their fact sheet for the bill, they state:

“Section 4(a): The core of this section (4(a)(2)(B)) would require increased efforts to achieve compliance with 2007 Act implementation goals.

Under this Act, mental health names increased from under 300,000 to about 4.6 million.

In 2012, Senator Chuck Grassley quoted CRS research stating that, as of June 1, 2012, 99.3% of mental health NICS names were veterans.”

When asked about this provision, Interim Senator Jones stated that he would “take a look at that.” This was immediately after he already stated he would vote for the bill. So either Doug Jones is actively supporting barring veterans from owning guns, or he is too lazy to read the bill, making him complicit in the barring of gun ownership from veterans.
