We Don’t Need More Gun Laws, We Need to Follow the Ones We Have: Air Force ‘Error’ Allowed Gunman to Buy Weapons That Were Used in Texas Church Shooting that Killed 26 People … The Air Force has Launched a Review
AIR FORCE ADMITS MAJOR SCREW UP … WE DON’T NEED MORE LAWS, WE NEED MORE DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO THE ONE’S WE HAVE.
Just a day after a gunman shot and killed 26 people and wounded more than 20 others at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Air Force has admitted they they made an error. You might call it a fatal error. The Air Force failed to enter Devin P. Kelley’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the guns used in Sunday’s church massacre. Are you kidding me!!! From the sounds of the video below, the Air Force needs to change their rules, not just review them. Sorry, receiving a court martial due to domestic violence on your spouse and child should void you of ever owning a gun. PERIOD!
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.
Under federal law, the conviction of the gunman, Devin P. Kelley, for domestic assault on his wife and toddler stepson — he had cracked the child’s skull — should have stopped Mr. Kelley from legally purchasing the military-style rifle and three other guns he acquired in the last four years.
How in the hell do you screw this up? The Air Force has begun a review if how the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction. REALLY? As opined at Red Stated, the Air Force better being doing a lot more than that. According to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek, Federal law prohibited him from buying or possessing firearms after this conviction. Initial information indicates that Kelley’s domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations.
“The Air Force has launched a review of how the service handled the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction,” the Air Force said in a statement.
The statement said Heather Wilson, the Air Force secretary, and Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, had ordered the Air Force inspector general to “conduct a complete review of the Kelley case.”
The Air Force also said it was looking into whether other convictions had been improperly left unreported to the federal database for firearms background checks.
ALL BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY better be reviewing all the cases of dishonorable discharges and make sure these individuals are in the database. They also need to review all cases of individuals who have been court martialed and tossed out if the military due to domestic assault and received bad conduct discharges. These people are criminals and need to be treated and such. A note to the LEFT, Democrats, liberals and politicians who in mere seconds after this heinous crime called for more gun control, go pound sand. So we are supposed to pass more gun control that would take the weapons out of good people’s hands to defend themselves, while we allow bureaucratic BS paperwork mistakes to allow a sick bastard like Devin P. Kelley to attain them. REALLY?
Bowe Bergdahl received a dishonorable discharge from the US Army but will avoid prison time for desertion and misbehavior before the enemy after abandoning his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009, a military judge ruled Friday.
The judge also ruled that Bergdahl’s rank be reduced from sergeant to private. Additionally, he will be required to pay a $1,000 fine from his salary for the next 10 months.
“Sgt. Bergdahl has looked forward to today for a long time,” Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s civilian attorney, said at a news conference after the sentence was announced.
“As everyone knows he was a captive of the Taliban for nearly five years, and three more years have elapsed while the legal process unfolded. He has lost nearly a decade of his life.”
The sentence is effective immediately, except for the dishonorable discharge, which Bergdahl is appealing, according to Fidell.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) Laughs that She’s now a ‘Rock Star’ … What a Sick Indivual Who Thinks This is All About Her (VIDEO)
WTF … TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME … THE OPPOSITE OF OUR BRAVE, SELFLESS MILITARY
Check out the reaction below from Democrat Congresswomen Frederica Wilson following the words of former general John Kelly. She really is an “empty barrel” and a disgrace. Representative Wilson laughed. LAUGHED!!! Like this was all about her. And she called President Trump out as having no empathy? What kind of a sick human being gets their 15 minutes of fame off the death of a military soldier? This woman is a cold hearted, narcissist who is consumed with so much hate and thinks so much of herself, maybe it is she who has some mental issues. The people of Florida in your district must be so proud.
Take a good look America of the insanity and repulsive behavior that lives and thrives in the Democrat party these days. I am shocked and appalled as well that an elected official does not have the common decency to shut up and respect the sacrifice of a fallen solder.
Following Chief of Staff General John Kelly’s comments, Rep. Frederica Wilson actually had the audacity to say that Kelly only said it to keep his job. I think she must be confusing what she would do. Really, Gen. Kelly has served the United States in the military and lost his son, who also served? A note to this poor excuse of an individual, you will never know what it means to have the character of Gen. John Kelly. You really are an empty barrel.
‘The Five’ Rips ‘Shameful’ Rep. Wilson For Claiming ‘Gen. Kelly Just Wants to Keep His Job’
A New Democrat Low … Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) Politicizing the Tragedy of the Death of Sgt. La David Johnson (VIDEO)
SICK … POLITICIZING THE DEATH OF AN AMERICAN SOLDIER IS AS LOW AS ONE CAN GET!!!
The exploitation of a tragedy … At a time that is the most raw, emotional and personal, a president’s call to the family of a fallen soldier should always remain just that, personal and private. Such was the case when President Donald Trump called the widow of fallen serviceman, Sgt. La David Johnson. Sadly, Johnson, a 25-year-old father of two, was killed October 4 while fighting in Niger. According to reports, she was on her way to receive her husband’s casket. Enter Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and the sick politicization begins. This hateful woman actually went on the liberal networks and spewed her hate. She was then forced to say, “I didn’t here the whole phone call”. Imagine that? So she didn’t hear the entire context of the call, she only cherry picked the things she wanted to to fit her hateful, anti-Trump agenda. It is even more sick that the liberal MSM would pile on.
According to President Trump, he said to the widow among many other things, “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.”
Gold Star father Craig Gross came out in defense of President Trump and stated that he believes critics of President Donald Trump’s reported comments to a soldier’s widow mistook his intended meaning.
It is really sick that this bias, hateful woman would take President Trump’s words out of context like this. Nobody was saying that he should have known he would die. Good grief. Sgt. La David Johnson is a hero and God bless your family. Personally, I praise Sgt. La David Johnson for his service and sacrifice to this great nation. This is why we honor the heroes of our military and especially the ones who lay down their lives. This is why We the People get upset at the NFL players disrespecting the National anthem, the flag and the military.
The Once Obama/Democrat Hero Bowe Bergdahl Pleads Guilty to Desertion … Why Was There an Admission of Guilt and No Deal, Or was There?
OBAMA SHOULD PLEAD GUILTY FOR SWAPPING 5 HIGH LEVEL TALIBAN TERRORISTS FOR THIS TRAITOR …
Yesterday, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdah pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Unfortunately, there was no trial because this case deserved transparency and why the Obama prisoner exchange was ever allowed. Bergdahl admitted to knowingly leaving his post in June 2009 and that it was against the law. He would be captured by the Taliban and held by them until Barack Obama made the ill advised, head-scratching prisoner exchange. Obama and Democrats have a lot to explain for this. Of which they will never do. Obama exchanged 5 high ranking Taliban terrorists that he knew would go back to the battle field to try and kill Americans, had a Rose Garden White House ceremony as if Bowe Bergdahl was a conquering hero and Democrats praised him as a hero.
Make no mistake about it. there were no kangaroo courts or lynch mobs as he claimed. What there is in the United States are laws and consequences when you break those laws. Compound that when you are in the United States military. The individual who the Obama administration deemed a hero in Bergdahl now faces the possibility of life in prison.
Judge Andrew Napolitano States legal council for Bergdahl threatened to call as witnesses Susan Rice & Barack Obama
US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could spend the rest of his life behind bars after he pleaded guilty Monday to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
Bergdahl disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in June 2009 and was held in captivity by the Taliban until May 2014.
“I left my observation post on my own,” Bergdahl told a judge Monday. “I understand leaving was against the law.”
The 31-year-old said he deserted from his outpost to try to reach the base from where he was dispatched. Bergdahl told the judge he wanted to report “a critical problem in my chain of command,” but did not specify what that problem was.
There was no pre-trial agreement prior to Bergdahl’s guilty plea, both the government and defense said.
Bergdahl faces up to five years in prison for the desertion charge and up to life in prison for the charge of misbehavior before the enemy.
Sorry if I think what Barack Obama did in this exchange was treason.
