While Democrats have been all over the more gun control bandwagon since Sundays massacre at a Texas church, House Speaker Paul Ryan is pointing out that existing laws should have prevented now-dead suspect Devin Kelley, 26, from buying guns.
Democrats have gone so far as to walk out of a moment of silence in the U.S. House in memory of the victims, as Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., did to make a publicity video.
Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., took a more typical path.
USA Today said he blasted lawmakers for failing to pass laws that could prevent tragedies like Sundays Texas rampage.
He didnt specify the laws. And House Speaker Paul Ryan pointed out that the existing laws already prohibited Kelley, a man involved in domestic abuse, from having a weapon.

AAs it been confirmed(or not) if this dirtbag was on any psych drugs?
Thank you. We need to pound the fact this was Obumblings Air Force. The guy should be in a mental institution.
Because it was under bammy, it’s a “blunder.” If it had been under Trump, they would be calling it an impeachable offense.
Air Force blunder? Or intentional failure to perform? IMHO its an open question until an honest & complete investigation of this and related similar Air Force Court Marshall required FBI notifications is complete.
Bill Clinton and Janet Reno still hold the record for the number of people killed while at church.
he could have bought them used with no check from the local paper.
Ships colliding in the night, AF failing to do it’s job. Just sayin’. Somebody’s asleep at the wheel or helm.
...actually should read...
Air Force blunder allowed Texas church shooter to easily obtain firearms from a licensed dealer.
Because, lets be honest...Economics 101. If you have enough cash you can "obtain" any gun (or drug or other contraband) you want regardless of what some piece of paper from a court says.
But, But, But———prohibited. /s
“he could have bought them used with no check from the local paper.”
Maybe so, but if he’d answered my ad, I’d have told him no sale just looking at him.
“Because, lets be honest...Economics 101. If you have enough cash you can “obtain” any gun (or drug or other contraband) you want regardless of what some piece of paper from a court says. “
Maybe if the BG Check had failed for him, it might have prompted some followup by law enforcement. There are so many places where the system failed with this guy, including his parents, ex-wife, her family, the AF, etc. Someone surely should have seen the problem and taken some action.
NO ONE but the shooter is responsible for his actions. No one.
Blaming this on the Air Force or NICS or anything else is nothing but liberals blaming everyone but the shooter, a shooter that was a liberal Democrat!
No law can survive First Contact with incompetence.
Everyone assumes that .gov will correctly and logically apply the law. The problem IS government, its repeated failures are the cause of most crimes. Either thru incompetents or intentional acts.
Prime example is the application of prohibition and more recently the war on some drugs.
If felons are not in the database due to incompetence, how many innocent people ARE in there for the same reason?
One simple piece of paper DID NOT allow the shooter to get that gun. If he wanted an AR bad enough, he would still have acquired it one way or another, there are numerous ways. Attend any gun show you want, go on a AR shopping spree, you should find a few.
We are hearing a lot about the Air Force screw up. Why wasnt this guy reported by local LE. for domestic abuse? Why wasnt his escape from a nut house not reported? Either one of those happenings would have triggered a negative report on a background check.
The Air Force is not alone in this screw up.
