It took some House members just 48 hours to let President Barack Obama know how they felt about his new rule requiring gun dealers along the Mexican border to report multiple sales of semiautomatic rifles. The House Appropriations Committee voted 25 to 16 to block the rule from going into effect, The Washington Post reported.

The move inserts a provision into the Justice Department’s spending bill that prohibits the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from implementing the regulation. The rule mandated that 8.500 gun dealers had to report within five days multiple sales of semiautomatic rifles larger than .22 caliber, the Post reported.

Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., sponsored the amendment, which now goes to the full House. The House previously voted to ban such a rule, but the measure did not become law, according to the Post.
