Texas Church Mass Shooter Identified as 26-Year-Old Air Force Veteran: Reports

Chicago once again used as punching bag in president’s speech about gun control

Yet he was able to do so. This is a completely irrational response to the tragedy in Texas this week, but it's being pushed by people for whom "more guns" is always the right answer to gun violence.

At the hospital, Kelley had been listed as a high-risk patient, a danger to himself and to others. How many more people will have to die in a shooting to say they died because in the United States there are more weapons than people?

The U.S. Air Force's top civilian official on Thursday publicly acknowledged for the first time that the domestic abuse charges for which the Texas church shooter was court martialed in 2012 should have been reported to the FBI. "We are trying to find out the motive and it could take some time".

Kelley used a Ruger AR-556 rifle in his rampage.

The liberal approach is ineffective.

Under the Tort Claims Act, "the Air Force is not immune", said Rachel VanLandingham, a former Air Force attorney and judge who now teaches law at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles. The people who think they're going to shoot it out with mass killers - who seem, even, to relish the idea - are impenetrable by reason.

Texas has a very specific set of regulations on who can and cannot be licensed to carry a handgun. Firearm homicides have declined since the 1990s despite the loosening of gun laws. Children were among the victims, who ranged in ages from 5 to 72, authorities said.

Packing in church, however, is not one of those cases.

Envisioning a world without mass murder - which means a world without war, waged either collectively or privately (with both types of war generating handsome profits for the weapons industry) - means envisioning a world where guns are not a precondition for empowerment and us vs. them isn't society's default setting. In addition to regular sessions with a chaplain, she says Air Force officials referred him to the mental health office.

This is where things get a little more complicated. "But in reality we did everything we possibly could do". In some states, a background check can be run fairly quickly through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Not everyone is on the brink of some violent act, but what if we could prevent it with something as simple as a hug? "There's absolutely no doubt that the practice of violence within a home, in an intimate setting, with people that theoretically the aggressor loves, opens the floodgates to public violence".

The Air Force acknowledged Monday that it failed to flag Kelley as banned from buying firearms.

Parishioner Charlene Uhl, whose 16-year-old daughter was also killed in the shooting, agrees with her pastor: "There should still be church, just not here". Would his discharge status and convictions of assault keep him from getting a gun?

The president paid lip-service to the relatives of the victims but didn't mention the heart of the matter: the free access to weapons that every citizen has thanks to the Second Amendment of the Constitution adopted since December 15, 1791.

As I read about the shootings at Sutherland Springs, Texas, and studied Devin Patrick Kelley's troubled bio, I suddenly found myself picturing a coal miner trapped in a collapsed mine.
