Trump signs bill reversing Obama rule to ban gun purchases by mentally ill

President Trump killed a regulation that would have tightened gun background checks, signing a bill to undo one of Obama’s executive actions following the San Bernardino shootings in 2015.  

The Obama administration rule required the Social Security Administration to submit records of mentally disabled people to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, the FBI database used to determine whether someone can buy a firearm under the 1993 Brady Bill.

The rule would have applied to about 75,000 people who were “adjudicated as a mental defective” and who had applied for Social Security benefits, and had a mechanism to notify those affected so they could appeal. But congressional Republicans said the rule could ensnare people who had mental health issues but otherwise were competent to own a gun.
