From Texas Public Radio:
After the Sutherland Springs church shooting last year, the Air Force admitted that it didn’t enter gunman Devin Kelley’s criminal history into the FBI’s background check system – a lapse that might have helped him purchase a firearm.
Joe and Claryce Holcombe, members of a family that lost nine in the shooting, filed a wrongful death claim against the Air Force in November of 2017. They are asking for $25 million in damages. The government has until Friday to file a motion to dismiss the Holcombe’s lawsuit.
