Air Force didn't report dozens of convictions to gun data base
The Air Force did not report the convictions of dozens of service members to a national background check database used for gun sales, The New York Times reported Tuesday, highlighting a gap that’s come to light in the wake of this month’s deadly Texas church shooting.

Officials identified the cases while conducting a review of reports to the system, after authorities found that the Air Force had failed to report the domestic violence conviction of Devin Kelley, the gunman behind the mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs.

Kelley, who was sentenced to a year in prison and received a bad conduct discharge after a 2014 court martial conviction on two counts of domestic abuse against his wife and stepson, should not have been able to purchase firearms.

“The error in the Kelley case was not an isolated incident and similar reporting lapses occurred at other locations,” the Air Force said in a statement, provided first to the Times.
