Journalist Slams Myth That Trump Allowed Mentally Ill To Purchase Guns
Ben Swann is back. After having worked at CBS affiliate WGCL-TV in Atlanta and ending the relationship last year, he’s reappeared with his infamous “Reality Check” series. The details of what happened between Swann and CBS remain unclear, however, Swann was notorious for calling out the pharmaceutical industry over vaccines and shunning gun control. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a connection or two as to why he was likely ousted. My guess is that when he left, he was forced to not work in media, specifically under the “Reality Check” brand, for at least a year. That’s me guessing and not a fact in the slightest.
He’s back. And he’s in similar form. Now he’s taking on the Liberal mantra that Trump “made it easier for the mentally ill to buy guns.”
Spoiler Alert: Trump did not at all make it easier for the mentally ill to get a gun.
Swann most eloquently points out the facts in his latest installation of “Reality Check.”
In other words, Trump removed a law that allowed the social security administration to determine which citizens can purchase firearms. His decision was supported by a number of widely respected mental health agencies and the ACLU. On the other hand, the residence of Nikolas Cruz, the accused Florida mass shooter, was visited by police 39 times. Cruz potentially stated in Youtube comments his intention to become a mass shooter, something which was reported to and ignored by the FBI.
We not only have a mental health issue in this country, but we also have a psychotic medication and FBI issue.
