Fort Worth police: man arrested for wanting to emulate the Odessa shooting tried to buy guns, but was foiled by background checks

He was denied because he failed background checks, Calzada said.
Thank god these restrictions delayed him for long enough that the police could catch him!

The media makes it sound like we didn't have background checks?

All NRA members can be proud of the success of the NICS, the background check system we supported from the beginning.

It's reassuring that the current system is working.

The current system works until it doesn't. Try telling what you said to any of the families in Odessa mourning their dead loved ones:

Odessa shooter purchased gun via loophole in background checks

A court had ruled him mentally unfit to purchase or own a firearm, so he was barred from buying a gun from a licensed dealer in 2014 after failing a federal background check.

Ator simply purchased his rifle in a private sale not covered under federal law — a loophole that would be closed if Congress passed universal background checks favored by nine out of 10 Americans. Private sales, including those on the internet and at gun shows, are not covered under federal criminal background check requirements.
This thread is about a good story, but we always have more work to do.

Wow. Your level of understanding on this subject is about as coherent as your spelling. His desire to break the law means nothing if he wasn't able to obtain a gun.

So youre saying that he was unable to buy a gun because the current system works.

its really too bad you werent prevented by a well timed wet fart.

My spelling can be attributed to an iPad and big, fat man fingers. Your excuse for being dumber than shit on a dick?

...no, it sounds like that's not what I'm saying.

Go sleep it off and come back tomorrow dude, this drunk posting binge of yours is embarrassing.

I think half of the leftist shitbags that post here live in the same Oakland crackhouse, and only have one computer. Hammertard forgot to switch user IDs and accidentally started posting as Emojitard. That's why there aren't 20 laughing smilies in every post.

This thread is about a good story, but we always have more work to do.
Except that's not a loophole at all. It's simply the way that current law works. It works that way for a reason. If you want to argue that the law should change to enforce background checks for private purchases, that's a different story. You're welcome to try and convince your government reps to implement a law such as that. But the fact that it isn't currently a law in no way makes it any kind of "Loophole." That's just lazy anti-gun lingo.

It says a lot that the only point of contention you can find in my post is to spend 7 sentences nitpicking about the word "loophole".
