Senate Votes to Block Obama Social Security Administration Gun Ban; Legislation Heads to President Trump

On Wednesday morning, the U.S. Senate voted 57-43 in favor of H.J.Res.40, which would block the implementation of an Obama-era rule under which the Social Security Administration (SSA) would report the names of tens of thousands of beneficiaries annually to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in order to prohibit them from purchasing firearms. Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress is permitted to overrule a federal regulation, within a 60 day window, using an expedited legislative procedure that is not subject to the Senate’s filibuster rule. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed this measure by a vote of 235-180. This important legislation now heads to President Donald Trump.

At issue is a December 19, 2016 SSA rule, set to be implemented by December 19, 2017, that broadly prohibits many with what SSA considers to be a mental disorder from purchasing firearms. Under the rule, those with a mental health impairment, who meet SSA’s criteria to receive benefits and also have a representative payee designated to receive these benefits, would be reported to the NICS database as “adjudicated as a mental defective,” and thus prohibited from possessing firearms....

It's good that congress seems to have grown a pair against random tyrannical regulations since Trump took office. That said I risk losing teeth to extreme grinding every time I think about how corrupt the system has become, that congress felt the need to write a law - so called "Congressional Review Act" giving them authority to override Bureaucratic FRACKING regulation!!!  To the eternal depths of perdition with that.  Congress is the ONLY body given constitutional authority to write law.  Period. Part of "draining the swamp" needs to include PERMANENTLY reigning in these federal bureaucracies and their regulations.
