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.

oped: Just when you thought there was enough gun control out there, a new group forms! This one will use veterans to plead for more gun control. WTH?

May I suggest General *Betrayus* and *Astronut* Kelly join #OathKeepers and take on constructive issues befitting Veterans rather than take on issues of the looney left progressives who are destroying our country from within! You can sign up here: https://www.oathkeepers.org
