Republicans in Congress began a process Thursday of rescinding a federal rule aimed at preventing people with serious mental-health problems from buying guns, one of the earliest targets in a long list of Obama administration regulations lawmakers plan to reverse.
Gun-rights groups and some mental-health advocates say the rule, approved in December, was overly broad, established a flawed standard and violated peoples’ due-process rights.
The House voted 235-180 to disapprove the rule. Republicans are using a special procedure under the Congressional Review Act to undo regulations put in place during the last six months of a previous administration using expedited procedures. The mechanism allows the Senate to circumvent the 60-vote threshold, which means it can be passed without Democratic support.
No, it makes perfect sense if you think about it.
After all with a law on the books to keep guns out of the hand of the mentally ill how would Trump voters ever be able to get a gun?
Just your daily reminder that every argument that conservatives use to protect gun manufacturers from suffering a loss of profit, is pure bullshit.
