Senate abolishes restiction for mentally ill gun ownersThe U.S. Senate on Wednesday approved a rollback of a rule preventing some receivers of Social Security disability benefits from purchasing guns.

It voted 57 to 43 to strike down a regulation requiring the Social Security Administration to report those with mental health conditions who receive disability benefits to the FBI background check system. The FBI database is used to determine eligibility to purchase firearms; it was expected to add about 75,000 names to the list of those disqualified.

The rule was implemented by the Obama administration after the 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six adults died.
