Gun free zones are disappearing. Some should always be gun free. Like BARS. Schools can have an armed officer.
Gun-rights groups and some mental-health advocates say the rule, approved in December, was overly broad, established a flawed standard and violated peoples’ due-process rights.
“This rule allows for bureaucrats to strip disabled people of their Second Amendment rights without due process,” Representative Ralph Abraham, a Louisiana Republican and one of the bill’s 119 Republican co-sponsors in the House, said in a statement. “The Constitution applied to all Americans, including disabled Americans, and I’m glad to see that Congress is acting swiftly to defend it.”
The Social Security Administration reporting rule also was opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union and several mental-health advocates, who were critical of the standard it uses to determine which beneficiaries are reported. The rule calls on the Social Security Administration to report beneficiaries who require a “representative payee” to manage their finances, while opponents argue the administration should focus on people who pose a danger to themselves or others.
The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities argued in a Jan. 26 letter to Congress that “current public dialogue is replete with inaccurate stereotyping of people with mental disabilities as violent and dangerous, and there is a real concern that the kind of policy change encompassed by this rule will reinforce those unfounded assumptions.”

Share the law so we may read its exact text, its definitions and see upon what date it was implemented. Provide statistics with shootings committed in the years prior to the enactment, and the years following the enactment. Otherwise your OP is subjective rubbish based on neither reason or fact, but emotion and vehement hatred of our new President, President Trump.

I'm just waiting for our dear leader Donny to sign an executive order to allow infants and kids to finally be able to exercise their god given right to own an AR-15.
