Why couldn’t he be treated by a dangerously and totally incompetent affirmative action doctor?

That's IT! Physician, heal thyself!

Maybe I should have said “under the hoof”? I wish Zero and Michelle couldn’t attend the ceremony tomorrow. They won’t share tears w/the families. We will hear pc rhetoric. These heroes were willing to give their lives for us, but their chain of command protected their own “cover your rear” careers. They were afraid of the PC BS to speak against the enemy among them. Ah..but they will read verses from the Bible, that’s not pc.

1) Maybe that NICS data isn't getting destroyed within 24 hours like the law requires.

2) Maybe the FBI sent agents out to every gun shop in the area, looked through the 4473 forms, and got lucky.

3) Something I haven't thought of yet.

Not being paranoid, but my bet's on horse #1.

The same thought crossed my mind after the make model and place of purchase was announced so quickly.

In my ignorance I thought the NICS data was stored for six months. Thanks for educating me.

The FBI tipped their hand and used the NISC system !

I too am betting on horse #1.

Only fair to warn you I only bet on sure things and fixed horse races.

So back to your original question, Carry_Okie -- how did they trace this?

An improper use of NICS would be having personal info on an individual and being able to discover what types of guns the individual purchased. Say, for example, if they couldn't find any murder weapon, but then came along and said they were looking for a certain type of 9mm that the perp bought.

That doesn't seem to be the case here however, because they had the weapon. Once they have the weapon itself, it can be easily traced without using NICS or any other fed resources.

The amazing thing to me is that.. A. He found so much ammo for it. B. He was able to afford it.

It's on sale at Cabela's, item # 9IS-216819, $100 for 250 rounds, cheaper if you order more. I'm sure an MD with salary of $100K/yr, living in a doghouse, having no family and no hobby, could afford the gun ($1000) and as much ammo as he needed.

Texas may not require it but every gun purchased from a retail dealer in America is accompanied by a BATF form 4473 and a background check. Your gun may not be registered but the transaction sure is.

how did they trace this? They would have the make/model/ser#, so...

I can answer this. They went to the manufacturer who told them which wholesaler they transferred it to, who told them which FFL dealer they sold it to, who told the FBI who bought it.

They would have the make/model/ser#, so...

They just traced it the normal way. They contacted FN, asked what jobber/wholesaler that serial number was sold to. Then they contacted that jobber/wholesaler and asked which dealer that serial number was sold to. All those records are required to be maintained, just as the 4473s are required to be kept at the dealers. Then they went to Guns Galore, and asked to see that 4473.

You might still not be paranoid enough, but it's not necessary to figure out how they did this. It's whole reason guns are required to have serial numbers, and for those records to be maintained at the various points along the supply chain.

Now if they can figure where he bought ammo and spare magazines, assuming it wasn't Guns Galore, then you have something to be paranoid about. :)

That's not NICS, it's really not any system, they call the manufacturer or importer, who is required to keep records of who they sell guns to. That wholesaler/distributor is then called. They provide the name of the dealer the gun was shipped to. They call, or probably in this case visit, the dealer, who looks in his records, which could include the 4473 form, and tells them who bought it and when.

What surprised me was the fact that the FBI announced where he purchased the pistol almost as fast as they said it was not a Terrorist Act.

Maybe his purchase was recent enough that the dealer rembered the murderers puss when it was plastered in the press or they simply do a reverse trace from FN to the jobber then the distributor then the dealer. The dealer keeps the 4473’s I believe. Easier to come from top down when ya have the gun and the suspect.

Just my SWAG on the matter.....

“Pour oil down his throat....”

Forget oil. Go with Bacon drippings

Then show him a video of himself being blessed by a Rabbi.

After that, he can have a refreshing cleaning of his wounds with some lemon juice and a salt scrub.

Then he can meet with the soldiers that he wounded and the families of those he killed.
Alone.

“I will take the liberty to disagree with you on one point. I wouldn’t resign, I would stay and do everything I could to remove all muslims from the service.”

Unfortunately, the liberals in control will find the solution to be outlawing private ownership of guns. We know muslims are the problem, liberals know guns are the problem. Ronald Reagan said it best...”they know so much that isn’t so.”

Tracing the serial number forward from the manufacturer through each FFL transaction until it arrived in the perp’s hand.

Probably went back through the non-existent NICS database...
