Trump Calls Texas Shooting "A Mental Heath Problem"
« on: November 06, 2017, 07:34:51 am »
Say to say but we all say this BS coming. Before they identified the shooter on the News I knew he had to have been White once they stopped using the term "possible terrorist attack"

And its not going to be a Gun Control issue because it never is, is it? So we get this:

The sick part of this bit is that nobody (least of all the Republicans) are going to do anything about mental health issues either.

But at least that way he doesn't have to talk about Gun Control at all.

Q: Did President Donald Trump repeal a rule that aims to block some people with mental disorders from buying guns?

A:  Yes. The Social Security Administration is no longer required to submit the names of certain mentally disabled beneficiaries to a federal agency that conducts gun background checks.

Now the law only specifically flagged people who had been committed and people who were deemed not competent to handle their own affairs by the courts for reporting. But even that was too much oversight for these people.

So even if you aren't mentally competent to handle your finances without a guardian of some sort, you can still have your AR-15 without any oversight at all.

America! F*ck yeah!
