The House on Thursday struck down an Obama-era regulation that could block

some recipients of disability benefits from buying guns.

 

The House voted 235-180 to roll back a rule that required the Social

Security Administration to report people who receive disability benefits and

have a mental health condition to the FBI's background check system. The

database is used to determine eligibility for buying a firearm.
