In the wake of last week’s deadly Florida high school shootings, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says there’s some misinformation being spread about his actions on a gun-related bill on Twitter and other social media.
Almost a year ago, President Trump signed a bill into law that Grassley authored which eliminated an Obama-era rule that would have added 75-thousand names to the list of people banned from buying guns.
OC………”mentally ill”. :09
The original measure would have barred people from buying guns if Social Security determined they could no longer handle their own finances.
OC……..on Disabilities. :20
Grassley says the Obama-era regulation threatened to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of Social Security disability beneficiaries without affording due process.
Obama first offered the rule in a 2013 memo after the shootings at Sandy Hook and it took partial effect in December of 2016.
Trump signed the law reversing the rule in February of 2017.
