Senate Votes to Repeal Obama Administration's Gun Rule
With a vote of 57-43, the Senate voted to repeal a regulation created during the Obama administration: preventing individuals with mental health conditions to have the ability to purchase firearms. When this rule was first put into effect, an estimated 75,000 people were affected. Since the bill has now been voted on by the House and the Senate, it will now be sent to the Oval Office to be signed by President Trump. Judiciary Chairman Senator Chuck Grassley says that “the Second Amendment, as a fundamental right, requires the government to carry the burden to show a person has dangerous mental illness. This regulation obviously and simply does not achieve that.”
