Just about every time President Donald Trump nullifies an executive order or regulation or law that originated during the Obama administration he has done so in front of the TV cameras in the Oval Office with a gaggle of fawning supporters behind him.
President Trump didn’t once talk about guns throughout his entire speech to the joint session of Congress — but he had, hours earlier, signed a bill into law making it easier for mentally ill people to obtain them.
Just before he offered the first big address of his presidency, Trump quietly signed a bill undoing an Obama-era regulation that had made it more difficult for people with mental illness to buy guns.
The bill rescinded a measure put into effect by former President Barack Obama that would have added people receiving Social Security funds for certain disabilities, including mental illness, to the national gun background check database.
A mentally handicapped man posted several videos on YouTube making death threats saying he was going to go to a rally with a gun to kill Donald Trump. This incident shows how damaging the hatred being spread online by anti-Trump agitators like Black Lives Matter and George Soros funded protesters can be on those who are easily influenced and may be incited to commit acts of violence.
