(NaturalNews) A new scheme by the federal agency tasked with caring for military veterans threatens to use servicemen's genes as a weapon against their constitutional rights. The so-called "Million Veterans Program," a voluntary research program by the Veterans Administration (VA) branded as "improving health care for veterans" is actually a data-mining operation intended to tag veterans as "mentally ill" in order to deprive them of their right to purchase and own firearms as guaranteed under the Second Amendment, warns a prominent lawyer.

Attorney Michael Connelly, executive director of the United States Justice Foundation and an Army veteran himself, wrote recently that the program is a ploy to put veterans' names on the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) watch list. In the event that a veteran is deemed to have "mental defects," he or she would be prohibited from purchasing firearms, Connelly says.

"As a veteran and constitutional lawyer I find this very troubling," he writes. "I encourage all of my fellow veterans to carefully read this questionnaire and consider whether you can reap any benefits from participating in this program."

Is the VA trying to target veterans' family members for removal of Second Amendment rights?

The questionnaire that Connelly refers to asks veterans invasive questions about their ancestry, the precise color of their skin, their hair color, and other details. It also asks whether or not veterans were exposed to Monsanto's Agent Orange herbicide, the anthrax vaccine, pyridostigmine bromide (anti-nerve agent pills) and other noxious agents during their time in the service.

A thorough health assessment is also included as part of the survey, including questions about how many times veterans visit the doctor or take medications throughout the year as well as the health statuses of veterans' biological family members. Veterans are also asked to provide a blood sample that will "be stored and used for future research on health, disease, illness, or condition."

These types of questions, explains Connelly, are what the VA already uses to profile veterans as being incapable of handling their own financial affairs or being ineligible to purchase firearms. With the inclusion of questions about veterans' family members, it is possible that the VA will use this information to prohibit them from purchasing firearms as well.

Obama: Veterans having access to guns is dangerous because of right wing "extremists"

Connelly is suing the federal government over the letters, which build upon the ideas put forth in a 2009 Obama administration report outlining how veterans should be declared incompetent and stripped of their Second Amendment rights.

Entitled Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment, the report, which is nothing more than propaganda meant to demonize anyone who might try to rise up against the rogue regime, makes this statement regarding military veterans having access to guns:

"The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."

The report hints at the "imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans," but admits that such policies might drive more veterans towards "extremist groups." The only real extremist group, of course, is the federal government, which many veterans likely now recognize as enemy number one in the fight to preserve liberty and justice for all.

"A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition," the VA has previously warned veterans. "If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both."
