    if you think that the Texas shooter just fell thru the cracks of crime reporting , think again . For 20 years the pentagon has failed to report criminals to the fbi, leaving them free to legally buy guns.

    Heads should roll for this ! All the branch’s have huge failure rates of crime reporting . The Texas guy is litterally a mental patient!

    Once again the pentagon has failed us

    REPORT: Pentagon Knew About Crime Reporting Failures That Could Have Prevented Texas Shooting


    details emerged that revealed the shooter was able to purchase the gun he used during his rampage because the Air Force failed to report his criminal records to the FBI — a problem that the Pentagon has known about for at least 20 years.

    Obama's policies are responsible for the Military's crime reporting failures.

    Why is the word military being used in the title? You mean the entire military just the air force or what?

    The Air Force was extensively used to crash Omaha Beach during D-Day.
    The AF is always the first to rush headlong into battle.
    Smashing machine-gun nests and anti-aircraft emplacements.

    No............sorry.....that was the Army and Marines.

    Nevermind.

    why reply to me? I'm being honest lumping all of the military with a giant brush is nonsensical.

    What kind of idiot would expect the military to protect them from local lone criminals? If that's a job for anyone, that would be the police or private security, though really you should bring a gun if you want protection.

    Like i have always said, enforce current laws. Don’t make new frivolous laws. They will do no good.

    STFU Timmy. Your first order of business is to protect yourself. With firearms, because this is the US of A.

    Do you have your AR, Timmy? What firearm do you have to protect yourself with?

    I don't have an AR, I don't need one. I might would like one at some point in time, but I like M1s better.

    Exactly. Police and military members are generally 5-10+ minutes away. It can take as little as 5-10 seconds for someone to draw a firearm and mortally wound a person. Do the math.
