Background Check Should Not Have Permitted Dylann Roof to Buy Gun at All; Mistake Was Due to Lack of Timely Records-Gathering by FBI and Police

So obviously what we need is more laws on citizens, to make up for a massively incompetent government.

The NYTimes, of course, brands the FBI's and police's errors a "loophole" that must be fixed.


The man accused of killing nine people in a historically black church in South Carolina last month should not have been able to buy the gun he used in the attack, the F.B.I. said Friday, in what was the latest acknowledgment of flaws in the national background check system.

A loophole in the system and an error by the F.B.I. allowed the man, Dylann Roof, to buy the .45-caliber handgun despite having previously admitted to drug possession, officials said.

Mr. Roof first tried to buy the gun on April 11, from a dealer in South Carolina. The F.B.I., which conducts background checks for gun sales, did not give the dealer approval to proceed with the purchase because the bureau needed to do more investigating about Mr. Roof’s s criminal history.

Under federal law, the F.B.I. has three days to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to deny the purchase. If the bureau cannot come up with an answer, the purchaser can return to the dealer and buy the gun.

So the police did not give the FBI the record in time, or the FBI did not request it in a timely way, and did not have, in any event, the report after three days, so Roof bought the gun.

The NYTimes is branding this a "loophole" for strategic leftist political agitation purposes -- if the government doesn't have its shit together, it's a "loophole" that can only be cured by a blanket restriction.

A writer at Reason attacks the NYT, and the FBI, for claiming its own incompetence is a "loophole" in the law.

Yes, FBI: In a way, it is a "loophole" in the law that criminals get away with crimes when law enforcement officials make deadly errors.

This "loophole" has existed since the first night's guardsmen in the Middle Ages.

Are you just becoming aware that if you sleep on the job, criminals will ply their trade without detection?

BTW, there's a "loophole" in the international system that allows ISIS to butcher Christians and Iran to build nuclear bombs, with which to nuke Tel Aviv.

That "loophole" is called Barack Hussein Obama.

He also doesn't like doing his job. He likes golf and Interesting Italians and having his picture taken with celebrities.
