If only existing procedure had been followed

November 8, 2017

As information drips out of the investigation into the cold-blooded slaughter at a small-town Texas church, we’re getting a more detailed look at the sickness and hatefulness of this shooter. It seems clearer with each drip that this was the LAST person who should have had a firearm, even under existing law.

New information from police reports shows that Devin Kelley escaped from a New Mexico mental facility in 2012 and was arrested by El Paso police while attempting to board a bus and leave the state. This was at the time when he was facing charges of domestic abuse against his wife and little stepson. According to a stunning report by an ABC affiliate, he also brought guns onto Holloman Air Force Base with the purpose of carrying out death threats he had made on his military chain of command.

Proper procedure for the Air Force was to notify the FBI of his criminal record, and apparently they failed to carry that out. Under current law, someone with Kelley’s record would NOT be allowed to purchase a gun --- in fact, this very sick person should be the poster boy for those who legally can’t buy firearms. So please, let’s leave the talk of new gun laws that would only restrict the law-abiding (like those sitting in church pews) from defending themselves, and focus instead on what needs to happen to enforce existing law.

    My heart breaks for the members of First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, Texas. The US Air Force has also confessed they did not release their information on this killer to right authorities to prevent him from purchasing guns. Obviously our existing laws did not prevent this unthinkable massacrer and logic would dictate that new laws would not have prevented it either. How about passing some laws to free up religious liberty to where the Bible and Prayer can be brought back into the public schools as it was taught for over 200 years, during which time America saw more peaceful and tranquil times. Churches were unlocked around the clock. Homes were unlocked around the clock. And more families stayed together than split up. I'm praying for Spiritual Awakening in America for a return to Western Civilization values !

    Violent mentally ill felon, unreported assaults. Dishonorable discharge. But he still gets multiple weapons?
    Inexcusable negligence as some clerk failed do do their job. Now look at the result. Who will be held accountable?

    SICK of celebrities blaming guns and Republicans for violence instead of themselves. Entertainment industry is more responsible for violence that ANY other organization, group or political party.... but that won't stop any of them from calling for more gun control laws.

    As long as all the old clowns are still in office in Washington. The only thing we gonna hear about is gun control. They are afraid that some of this stupid stuff they trying to oppose on the American public is gonna make a lot t of people flip out and take it out on them. As far as that shooter when they caught him against n he should still be in the mental hospital along with they clown that shot Lennon.
