February 2, 2017 Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.) today voted to block a rule created by the Social Security Administration that restricts the Second Amendment and due process rights of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries. Under the rule, individuals who receive SSDI because of a mental health condition and do not handle their own finances would be placed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). This would prevent them from purchasing or possessing a firearm and require an onerous appeal process to reverse.
