Ted Cruz attacked Obama and his administration for their irresponsibility of prosecuting felons who lied on the purchase forms for guns.
This is the reason the Texas church shooter was able to buy the firearms he used to slaughter innocent Christians.
According to Cruz, legislation was introduced in 2013 that would have prevented the shooting. The Air Force could have flagged Kelley. Unfortunately, a filibuster lead by the Democrats halted the legislation.
“This should have been stopped beforehand,” Cruz said.
“Number one, the Air Force, the Obama Administration didn’t report those convictions to the NCIS data base,” Cruz added. “It’s a problem at the federal government; it’s a problem with the states. And so, when he went in to buy the guns, they ran the background check, and they didn’t find it cause it wasn’t in the database.”
