ATF and HHS propose new mental health, background check gun rules

Eric Holder signs ATF rulemaking proposal.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Department of Health and Human Services each had proposed rulemaking changes published Tuesday in the Federal Register as part of Obama administration executive actions to further restrict the eligibility requirements for lawful possession of firearms. Among other changes, the ATF proposal would include those with involuntary outpatient commitments among prohibited persons, and the HHS notice would eliminate state privacy restrictions about sharing the identities of individuals.
