The U.S. Air Force is reviewing records that date back to 1996 in a bid to ensure that all crimes which would disqualify a convict from buying a firearm have been properly reported to the FBI’s national background check system, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told Pentagon reporters Thursday.

Air Force reporting procedures to the FBI have come under intense scrutiny following a reporting lapse that allowed Texas church shooter Devin Kelley to repeatedly purchase firearms, despite a conviction for misdemeanor domestic violence. U.S. law dictates that the Air Force and other service branches are required to report such convictions to the FBI database.

Kelley murdered 26 parishioners in cold blood with a firearm that he purchased in April 2016, despite his 2012 conviction by the Air Force for beating his wife and fracturing his stepson’s skull. Wilson noted that a separate investigation into the specific lapse in Kelley’s report falling through the cracks is underway, with “nearly 100” people already interviewed

Sounds like Al Capone checking his income tax returns.
