    Oversight Groups Have Repeatedly Identified Flaws In Military Crime Reporting

    https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...rime-reporting

    The U.S. military has broad, longstanding problems sharing criminal records with the FBI. The Department of Defense is required to share data with the FBI under federal law, but, as the Kelley case lays bare, the fact that it's mandatory doesn't mean it actually happens.
    Under federal law, it's illegal for anyone convicted of a crime punishable by more than a year in prison to buy or possess a gun. The same is true for anyone who is convicted of a domestic violence offense or who falls in several other disqualifying categories.
    These problems are very old. As The Associated Press has reported, two decades ago, the inspector general found that the Army and Navy failed to submit fingerprints to the FBI in more than 80 percent of cases. In the Navy, the outcome of criminal cases went unreported to the bureau 94 percent of the time.
    The Department of Defense and the FBI both tell NPR that they cannot share the total number of military criminal records currently uploaded to the FBI's III database. The FBI says the data is "not readily available." The Department of Defense says there's no centralized record because each military law enforcement agency, of which there are many, handles those reports individually.
    Efforts are already underway to strengthen the reporting system. Records submitted to Congress show that the Department of Defense, along with other federal agencies, has already written an "implementation plan" to improve its criminal reporting.
    And more recently, a bipartisan group of senators has introduced a bill designed to strengthen the background check process. Among other things, the measure would penalize federal agencies that fail to report records.
    What is the point of gun laws when government entities don't follow them...................maybe, just maybe, gun laws would work if they were actually fully implemented and followed to the letter of the law by EVERYONE, NOT just by the law abiding gun owners. The IRS does a better job nailing us for taxes, maybe THEY should be in charge of gun enforcement.........

    ...........end rant, I am soooooooooo

But, if you have a really great provider, they will research the kinds of tests available, and often be able to find an affordable one, and /or one who gives breaks based on income. With one company I know of, most people will qualify for 20 or 50 dollars total owed to that company.

    Can you give me more information on this? We are looking at meds for a family member and I'd like to save the trial and error if possible.

    Family who lost 9 people in Sutherland Springs shooting files federal claim against Air Force
    By Kelsey Bradshaw, mySanAntonio.com
    Updated 4:38 pm, Tuesday, November 28, 2017

    The Air Force failed numerous times to take steps that would have prevented Sutherland Springs shooter Devin Patrick Kelley from purchasing the firearm he used to kill 26 people and wound 20 others, according to a claim filed by the Holcombe family, which lost 9 members in the massacre.
    The claim, filed against the U.S. government Tuesday specifically in the death of Bryan Holcombe, could be the first step to an eventual lawsuit if the Air Force denies responsibility.

    The family is seeking monetary damages but said they are also hoping to prevent the type of error that allowed Kelley to purchase the tools he needed to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history.

    Firefighter Rusty Duncan:

    ... rushed inside the church, he went through the aisles and "started checking for people's pulses," Duncan said. "That's where Ryland's hand reached out from under his stepmom and grabbed my pant leg. I rolled her over and grabbed him and started running outside with him."

    Is it just me, or is this shooting being lost in the media right now? It seems to me, that the media is recalling Las Vegas especially, and other mass shootings, without mention of the horror of TX in between. But it could be oversight on my part because I'm not following Florida that closely.

    I'm just thinking of these folks right now and this seemed like the most appropriate place to remember them.

    Bump

    This we probably posted up thread but wanted to add it here now in light of all the current backlash and copycats coming out of the woodwork.

    From November 11, 2017.

    Authorities on Friday arrested two people accused of making separate threats of mass shootings — one of them a Manor High School student who allegedly threatened a Columbine-style attack at his school and the other a woman who showed up at a South Austin church with a shotgun, according to reports.

    In the first incident, an assistant principal at Manor High School contacted a school resource officer Friday about what she considered a threat to the safety of the school, according to an arrest affidavit.

    Police investigated and found a Snapchat video posted that morning by 17-year-old Rafael Gamboa, under the username of “School Shooter.”

    Police said the video showed the student standing behind bushes and other students at a pep rally in the school’s courtyard with the caption, “Loads glock, oh i’ll make y’all red.”

    In the second incident, a man at a learning center attached to Bannockburn Baptist Church in South Austin said he heard a woman with a child trying to enter the locked building on Friday. Assuming she was a parent, the man let her in, the affidavit said.

    The woman, later identified as Lindsey Holeman, 27, entered, placed the child on the floor and said, “There’s a gun on my car. I have shells. Look, I will give you the shells. I have one for each of you,” according to an affidavit.
