Obama-era gun control rule officially dead :: 05/18/2017

The rule added during the Obama Administration to bar certain Social Security recipients from buying guns has been listed as unpublished by the Federal Register.

The rule, “Implementation of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System Improvement Amendments Act of 2007,” was scheduled to publish May 18.

The rule would have added Social Security disability recipients who have been deemed unable to manage their own affairs to the federal background check system for gun purchases. The measure would have effectively caused them to fail a background check before buying a gun.

Opponents of the measure argued it would have prohibited guns to the most vulnerable without due process. Shortly into the legislative session, Congress quickly voted to block the measure and became on of the first bills signed off by President Trump.
