- The White House has proposed two gun control regulations that the government doesn't need Congress' approval for.
- One measure would clarify who isn't allowed to own a firearm because of mental illness and would provide guidance to states about the information they can share with a federal database that dealers use to check whether a buyer is allowed to purchase a gun.
- However, mental health advocates fear that the regulations could stop those who are unwell from seeking treatment for fear that their illness would be added to federal records.
- The other proposal would eliminate obstacles that could stop states from supplying information to the database.
