Day 25

Congress made a shocking move to please it’s NRA paymaster, but the change was barely mentioned among the colossal number of messes being reported out of Washington.

This is from Politico:
The House voted Thursday to rescind an Obama administration rule that heightened scrutiny of mentally impaired people 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 individuals are determined to be mentally impaired.
