1. Well now he's saying mental health is playing a big role in the shootings.

So by extension, he wants more people to be killed and that's why he removed the ban so people with mental illness can get guns. That's the only conclusion - he wants massacres, especially of minorities, and is creating conditions so this can happen more easily. It's really chilling & scary how malevolent he is to the American people.

3. Which rule?

 

My ad blocker is blocking your link.

It is this rule enacted by Obama that Trump reversed?
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/06/politics/obama-trump-mental-illness-gun-rule-
fact-check/index.html

The Obama administration's rule, which took effect two days before Trump's inauguration, restricted people who required help managing government benefits and had a mental impairment from buying guns. That includes those with eating disorders, cognitive impairments and depression. Multiple disability groups, along with the American Civil Liberties Union opposed the regulation.


Are you talking about the rule the ACLU opposed?
