BOOM! The House Overturns Obama on Gun Law!
The Second Amendment is so clear. We have the right to bear arms.
But Democrats constantly try to chip away at that.
Obama did a lot of damage, but today the House voted to overturn one of his actions.
Here are the details from Politico:
The House voted Thursday to rescind an Obama administration rule that heightened scrutiny of mentally impaired seniors who seek to purchase a firearm — but that critics said would strip law abiding citizens of their constitutional rights.
On a 235-180 vote, members voted to rescind the rule, adopted in December, that permits the Social Security Administration to send information about those who receive disability payments to the national system of background checks for gun purchasers if those seniors are determined to be mentally impaired.
The move was hailed by the National Rifle Association as a victory for Second Amendment rights.
“The Obama administration’s last minute, back-door gun grab would have stripped law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment rights without due process,” said Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Today’s vote was the first step in revoking this unconstitutional action.”
The House vote came as part of a wave of last-minute Obama administration regulations that are being undone by the Republican Congress under the Congressional Review Act, which gives Congress the power to unravel regulations before they take effect.
