There were many competent older people who would have been denied their right to self-defense by some bureaucrat’s determination under this rule.
From the Washington Examiner:
The Senate voted Wednesday to roll back an Obama administration rule that Republicans have said is a threat to people’s right to own firearms, following a similar House vote last week.
The Senate voted 57-43 to kill the rule following a similar party-line vote in the House this month.
The Obama rule holds that the Social Security Administration must report anyone who requires third-party assistance to manage their Social Security benefits is placed on the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS. Placement on that list prevents them from buying a gun.
