Texas Governor Gregg Abbott told CNN this morning that Sutherland Spring mass murderer Devin Patrick Kelley had been denied a Texas CHL. That could have been due to his discharge from the Air Force over domestic violence charges.
Texas church gunman Devin Kelley tried to get a license to carry a gun in Texas, but the state denied him, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said, citing the director of Texas’ Department of Public Safety.“So how was it that he was able to get a gun? By all the facts that we seem to know, he was not supposed to have access to a gun,” Abbott told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “So how did this happen?”
Wait. You mean that prohibited individuals who can’t legally own firearms can still acquire them? And actually carry them? Why, it’s almost as if all the gun control laws in the world wouldn’t have stopped something like what happened yesterday.
