Fake News Busted: NBC Claims Trump Revokes Gun Background Checks for Mentally Ill
The lame-stream media keeps proving that they long ago gave up being impartial news reporting services, what the First Amendment expects them to implicitly be. Instead, most of them have morphed into nothing more than the propaganda wing of the DNC.
On Tuesday, President Trump signed the repeal of Barack Obama’s gun ban for Social Security recipients. On Thursday, NBC News reported that Trump had signed a repeal of “gun checks for people with mental illness.”
This is Fake News 101, inasmuch as it takes Trump’s commitment to defend the Second Amendment and reports it as something that endangers the American people by allowing mentally ill persons to acquire guns.
Obama’s Social Security gun ban opened the door for beneficiaries to be investigated if they were under mental duress and needed help with their finances. A beneficiary who had his check sent to a third party could catch the Social Security Administration’s attention, be investigated, and turned over to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to be barred from gun purchases. This not only violated the beneciaries’ Second Amendment rights but their Due Process rights as well. It meant that a recently-widowed 85-year-old grandmother could be denied the right to buy a .38 Special revolver for self-defense because her temporary mental anguish required her to get help with finances.
