Source: DownWithTyranny!: Republicans– And The Democrats Who Love Them– Defend The Mentally Handicapped– At Least When It Comes To Buying Guns And Ammo

The vote was to overturn an Obama-era rule that bars gun ownership by some people who have been deemed too mentally impaired to manage their own financial affairs by the Social Security Administration, including, for example, schizophrenics.

The NRA and the Republican Party argued that the rule unfairly stigmatizes “people with disabilities” and strips them of their Second Amendment rights.
