Now the New York Times reports here that:
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Tex. — A day after a gunman massacred parishioners in a small Texas church, the Air Force admitted on Monday that it had failed to enter the man’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the rifle he used to kill 26 people.
Could is the wrong word. Should (as discussed here).
It won’t be long before the partisans add this to their list of reasons why commanders should be stripped of their convening authority, but I still blame the lawyers.
