Another one of the governments unwitting agents of mayhem that they seed into the population.
yeah, but just think only 2 0r 3 more government laws will fix it all.
I would imagine it was an E-2 or E-3 clerk who obviously needed better supervision and training.
Well, no problem, no harm, no foul, didn’t cost anyone anything at all.
We need to make a new law.
The answer is of course, WE NEED MORE GUN LAWS!
And how many others did the AF clerk “forget” to send to the data base???
But Texas state denied him carry permit.
Will leftists wise up on the incompetence of BIG gubmint? No in a billion chances.
Now we know.
The obvious questions of HOW this sick POS passed background checks has now been answered.
Isn’t this the sort of thing that is SUPPOSED to go on your DD-214? It’s a pretty big omission ....
Good question. And How?
How in the hell did Kelley have a security guard license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety?

Yes it was, and the dude should be reprimanded, but I am wondering if the chump wouldn't have just bought his weapons on the street somewhere?

They’re trying to salvage the false narrative, but his social media postings are out of the bag now.
FBI lets lots of felons and known terrorists buy guns.
did schumer blame Pres. Trump yet ? for cutting budgets ?
Yes, perhaps an E-2 or E-3 clerk....but also possibly a resident Air Force Social Justice Warrior who didnt want to see the downtrodden further oppressed.
The Air Force needs to do a thorough AND NON-CORRUPT investigation of this lapse and its cause. And it needs to determine whether there are more lapses. Lives may well depend upon this.
Figure it out. Makes you proud of the USAF.
