While lots of folks are debating adding more gun laws or protecting their gun rights, one thing is becoming increasingly clear. There are a lot of federal entities who aren’t enforcing the laws we already have, and because of this, tragedies are happening.
Why would we keep increasing the restrictions on guns for law-abiding citizens when the feds don’t even enforce the ones we already have?
The criminals would just continue to lie on their background checks and wouldn’t be found out because the “authorities” aren’t doing their jobs. It would only cause a greater burden on gun owners who’ve done nothing wrong.
Read on to see the epic fails that preceded two recent mass shootings.
The Texas Church Shooting
Let’s go back to the guy who shot up that church in Texas. Last year on Nov. 5, 27 people were killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas by Devin Patrick Kelley. (source)
Kelley was stopped when a neighbor overheard the massacre and came out to protect them. The neighbor, Stephen Willeford, engaged Kelley and shot him in an opening in his body armor. Willeford then pursued Kelley until he stopped. At that point, it still took police 5-7 minutes to arrive, but Willeford held Kelley at gunpoint until they did. (source)
It was a classic case of a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun and a reminder of why we can’t wait for the police to save us.
BUT…Kelley wasn’t supposed to be able to buy a gun at all.
According to the laws already on the books, Devin Patrick Kelley was ineligible to legally purchase a firearm. He had been court-martialed and dishonorably discharged from the military for assaulting his previous wife and her infant son.
The Air Force was supposed to report this to the federal database, but they didn’t.
Had they reported it, it would have shown up on a background check for the gun store selling the firearms used during the attack. Kelley lied on his background check and since there were no records to dispute it, was taken at his word. (Imagine that, a criminal lying.)
