Trump Undid Obama Rule That Added Mentally Ill People to Gun Check Register

President Donald Trump’s tweet Thursday highlighting the mental illness of the man charged in the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school has angered gun control advocates who point to an Obama-era gun checks regulation he repealed last year.

And yes folks..its real

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-sign-bill-revoking-obama-era-gun-checks-people-mental-illnesses/- Did President Trump Revoke Gun Background Checks for Mentally Ill People?

President Trump signed a bill blocking Obama-era background checks that would have made it easier to flag mentally ill potential gun purchasers.

So how does this tie in....

The pattern is by now numbingly familiar. A lone lunatic murders a mass of innocent people in some public location. There is a heartfelt cry for tighter control on gun ownership. Then state legislatures swing into action. They pass a series of laws loosening controls on gun ownership.

But hey..2nd Amendment Rights for everyone..right?

    Of course it's not the same. I'm a proud Swedish patriot, that doesn't mean I want to elevate Sweden as the superior nation on earth.

      "Decry us as cowards all you want. But it's not all black and white."
      My grandfathers cousin helped liberate one of the camps when he served with the U. S Army.
      On my mothers side I have a family member who after seeing his friend blown apart on a beach , was eventually stationed on an island that got hit by a typhoon where the Navy forgot they had an outpost, he spent two weeks eating boot leather till the navy forgot their mistake.

      @Waffles731 You're using your family's gruesome experiences as some kind of cock-measuring contest? That's twisted dude.
      You've ignored every point made about our contry's situation, so as you clearly only wish to flaunt some puerile sense of courage, I'll not further this discussion. Make all the banal slanders you want. No Swede pays you any mind.

    Seriously? "A person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests" and "A person who vigorously supports their country" are unrelated?

    And why the new Zealand link? The shooters haven't claimed to be nationalists, they literally called themselves terrorists.

    And again your snopes article refutes the fortune. com article. Teump did not revoke background checks, nor did he change the regulation on who is or is not allowed a firearm. The only change is that background checks are not going to start accessing people's social security data.
