Larry Pratt is back to repeating his debunked conspiracy theory that the government is taking guns from veterans as part of a Nazi/Soviet plot. The Gun Owners of America head floated the false rumors that doctors are part of a government effort to confiscate veterans’ guns while appearing on the Talk To Solomon Show, with co-hosts Stan Solomon and Steve Davis.
Responding to Solomon’s claim that “the Obama administration is working to disarm every veteran” and will use Obamacare to “literally take away the rights of every American to have a firearm," Pratt alleged that the administration is spearheading “backdoor gun control.”
“They are doing it to the whole country, they field tested it on veterans, and now it’s the whole country,” Pratt said. “We are looking at a major assault on the right to keep and bear arms, it is reminiscent of Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, where they used doctors as part of their torture routines and got people sent to the camps for improvement of their mental health.”
After Davis warned that “government-run health care” is encouraging gun confiscations, Pratt feared that doctors may soon be compelled to “submit medical information to the big computers in the sky” because of Obamacare.
