Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

Ruh roh, this doesn't look good for Academy.

https://bearingarms.com/erika-h/2017/12 ... gun-store/
A family of three of the victims of the Sutherland Springs shooting has filed a lawsuit against the gun store that sold the shooter the weapon used in the attack – and it looks like they have legitimate grounds.

According to mySanAntonio.com, the Ward and Lookingbill family are seeking $25 million in damages after the Academy Sports & Outdoors in San Antonio, Texas, allegedly failed to follow the law by selling the gunman a Ruger model AR-566 rifle in 2016. That same rifle would be used a year later on November 5th in the massacre of 26 parishioners at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs.

========================>SNIP<====================================

So how could they have broken the law by selling him the gun? Well, the shooter listed his Colorado Springs address on a firearm record form, and the gun was picked up in Texas. Even though Colorado and Texas have a reciprocity agreement, Texas prohibits the sale of firearms to non-residents. For this reason, the families claim the purchase should have been transferred to the shooter’s Colorado home.

“The Ruger should have never been placed in Kelley’s hands in Texas,” the lawsuit reads.

I wondered if they tried to use the touch ID with the dead creeps's fingers when it was first found.

Some states are even worse.

It makes perfect sense when you think about it.

The vast majority of people who fail a NICS check are either criminals or mentally unfit. Either way, politicians have to grant them professional courtesy.

The NICS system is horribly broken, both because of incomplete an haphazard reporting (at all levels) and errors in NICS itself.
NICS is a function of the FBI. As far as what I see and hear the FBI is horribly broken.
True, but NICS also depends on correct and timely reporting, which just isn't happening.

Texan Who Engaged Shooter Shares His Story [VIDEO]

There's a short video of the Good Samaritan. He's almost in tears for the whole thing.

Then there's a video of his cousin, relaying the story, presumably as the Samaritan told him.

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 27 dead 30 injured in mass shooting

This may have been yet another failure of the NICS system.
The federal government's firearm transaction record, which buyers must legally fill out, asks about felony convictions. Kelley bought a Ruger AR-556 rifle, used in the attack on the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, in April of last year from an Academy Sports & Outdoors store in San Antonio, a law-enforcement official told CNN.

The purchase of the gun took place two years after Kelley had been court-martialed, imprisoned, and discharged from the military.

The Daily Mail is a British publication. "Keen biker" translates to "enthusiastic biker". The US and Great Britain are two countries separated by a common language. ;-)

Which makes perfect sense, since his BC discharge was the result of a domestic violence conviction.
