I want to know how his move from Texas to that exact job on a base full of the Navy’s top brass was arranged.
Paging Professor Raoul X.
I found my answer, he was still employed as a contractor, so he would have been granted access to the base, either by CAC or visitor pass. However, I do agree that some people with mental health issues need to have their secret clearances removed.
Yeah, there’s that, which does appear to be explained by his trail of employment but then there’s the shotgun.
I’ve seen pics of the shop he bought the shotgun from but it wasn’t clear what state it was in. I’m guessing the shop is in big trouble. The buyer must be a permanent resident in the state of the purchase, or in the case of a long gun , in a contiguous state. AA was living in a motel so he could not have had proof of residency. His base pass would not have had his home address and having been there only three weeks probably didn’t have a drivers license. In my state you can’t get a drivers license without showing evidence of residency-—power bill phone bill, water, etc.
When the dealer called in for the NIX check he had to give a permanent address which had to match the local data base.
Smells a little like a strawman purchase to me but we haven’t heard from BATF. I didn’t hear the FBI chick say that the purchase was all cool. I expect that dealer will be lawyering up because this sale is probably going to break him unless he’s got some helluva insurance.
