Guns for the mentally ill? Trump lifts ban
President Trump killed a regulation tightening gun background checks Tuesday, signing a bill to undo an Obama-era executive action. That rule required mentally disabled people's records to be submitted to an FBI database used to determine firearm purchases under the 1993 Brady Bill. But congressional Republicans said the rule could ensnare those with mental-health issues who are otherwise competent to own a gun. The Obama-era rule followed the San Bernardino shootings in 2015.
