COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A gun control rule put in place by the Obama administration faced scrutiny as House Republicans voted to get rid of it 235-180.
The rule says anyone with mental illness so severe that they can’t manage their own finances can’t buy a gun.
This would impact roughly 75,000 people in America.
Paul Paradis is the owner of a gun store in Colorado Springs.
He saw Obama’s original gun control rule as an attack on the Constitution.
“Our whole Constitution is like a big vibrant tree with lots of branches. If you start going in and chopping off the branches, pretty soon the tree dies,” said Paradis.
