But they tend to vote against such laws when it comes down to it (stricter background checks)

A lot of it has to do with them being afraid of their constituency looking at them as traitors


Also they just confirmed Devos for secretary of education yes they want cuts

The result of this particular regulation was that being on Social Security could label you as having a mental deficiency that would prevent you from owning a gun not really fair

No they pick the people that represent them no more no less on this issue

Many Republican lawmakers are entirely aware we need stricter gun regulation but to take any action on it whatsoever is to lose their seats

No, it was specifically if you were found to not be mentally competent enough to handle your own finances as deemed through the social security administration then it would prevent you from owning a gun. It wasn't just actually if you had SSD you couldn't get a gun.

right hence I say could

from the ACLU's letter to Congress

"There is no data to support a connection between the need for a representative payee to manage one's Social Security disability benefits and a propensity toward gun violence... the rule automatically conflates one disability-related characteristic, that is, difficulty managing money, with the inability to safely possess a firearm."

I'm all for more gun regulations, we desperately need them, but let's make them fair if possible

If you can't manage money, then you can't handle the responsibility of owning a gun. That's totally reasonable.

That's uh...that's impeachable right? Or are the second amendment and electoral college the only parts of the constitution that matter?
