Some mentally ill people will find it easier to buy guns, thanks to the Senate.

Congress is making it easier for mentally ill people to buy firearms, after the Senate voted 57-43 to approve to H.J.Res. 40 on February 16. The resolution, expected to be signed by the President, will undo regulations implemented by former President Barack Obama that would have prevented an estimated 75,000 people with mental disorders from being able to purchase a firearm.

Obama’s rule strengthened the federal background check system to require the Social Security Administration to report the names of certain beneficiaries with mental impairments.

But the NRA-backed House and Senate, emboldened by Trump’s pro-gun stance, moved quickly to void Obama’s rule, which may have prevented the loss of American lives.

Shame the Senators Who Voted for This Dangerous Resolution

NYAGV thanks New York’s Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer for voting “no” on HJ Res. 40. But shame on the 57 Senators who voted “yay” for this dangerous resolution! Please take action and call them, email them, and call them out by name on social media. The roll call vote:
