In yet another twisted version of the truth, the left is screaming “Trump Legalizes Guns For The Mentally Ill.” The reality is that the Obama administration ruling that was reversed took away Second Amendment rights from many American citizens based on a possible ‘disability’ which may have nothing at all to do with mental health or the ability to safely and effectively manage a gun.
