Amplification on why this individual was able to buy firearms. Link below.
As of now: Monday afternoon
MSNBC and CNN are saying the shooter had a "bad conduct discharge", as opposed to a "dishonorable discharge." If it was a BCD it wouldn't have prohibited him from legally buying weapons. Fox and several State of Texas authorities say it was a DD, which would have. Lots of hooting and hollering from the left wing media about more gun control.
It appears this was a case of some psychopath "getting even" with his mother in law. Otherwise, no much else in the way of new information.
Original Post Sunday Night:
The news says this guy was kicked out of the Air Force with a dishonorable discharge.
So, he was breaking the law by possessing any kind of firearm, and it was a federal offense too boot. So much for the efficacy of "gun control laws."
"With this characterization of service, all veterans' benefits are lost, regardless of any past honorable service, and this type of discharge is regarded as shameful in the military. In many states a dishonorable discharge is deemed the equivalent of a felony conviction, with attendant loss of civil rights. Additionally, US federal lawprohibits possession of firearms by those who have been dishonorably discharged per the Gun Control Act of 1968."
The news is also saying that a neighbor ran over to the church with a rifle, and the neighbor and some random civilian passersby chased the shooter into a ditch where he got dead, though there's no word on what croaked him yet.
