Gun Control Laws Did Not Stop Texas Shooter

Texas church shooter Devin Kelley brutally assaulted both his ex-wife and infant stepson years prior to the shooting, which resulted in a bad-conduct discharge from the US Air Force and disqualified him from legally buying firearms.  He also escaped from a mental institution. There are laws in place that made it illegal for Kelly to purchasing guns, but that didn’t stop him from doing so. 70% of mass-shooting sprees end within 5 minutes, but average police response time is 11 minutes. Maine and Wyoming have very high private ownership of guns and low levels of gun violence. Any questions? -GEG

A bad conduct discharge, in and of itself, is not necessarily a bar to firearm ownership. In addition to the BCD, you need to have been sentenced to 1 yr (or more) in prison, making the crime treatable as a felony. Without that, firearm ownership is going to be allowed.
