Republicans targeting Obama's executive action on gun control

The HillThe Obama administration is facing congressional scrutiny for blocking more than a quarter-million military veterans from owning guns.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has reported more than 257,000 former members of the military who cannot manage their finances to the FBI’s list of people who are not allowed to own guns, Republicans claim, even though "it has nothing to do with regulating firearms.”

I've reported on this practice before. It's one of the lesser-reported and more dangerous of Obama's anti-gun executive orders. This is the first time I've seen hard numbers on how many people have had their 2nd Amendment rights blocked by this action.
