The past eight years of former President Obama had brought on a tremendous amount of unnecessary rules and regulations designed to strip the American citizen of their Constitutional rights. As most Democrats go, his biggest target was the Second Amendment, which allows American citizens to arm themselves.

His eight-year crusade amounted to executive orders that stopped people from buying guns for whatever reason he could think of, including if they were receiving Social Security disability benefits. However that was quickly taken down. First the House of Representatives voted to overturn this measure, sending it to the Senate.

Now the Senate has officially overturned this Obama-era regulation, as they voted 57-43 to stop the regulation in its tracks. Now that the Senate and the House have overruled this regulation, it will be sent to President Donald Trump’s desk, where he is expected to sign it.

As stated earlier, the Obama regulation targeted people that were receiving Social Security disability benefits. His regulation stated that if those people were receiving those benefits, then they were not able to purchase a gun for themselves

Obama Went After Guns Again

If they were on this list, then the Social Security Administration would have to report those people, as well as others that have a mental health condition, to the FBI’s background check system. That is the database used to determine if someone is eligible to buy a gun or not.. source
