When you beat your wife and stepchild; when you escape from a mental institution; when you threaten your superiors; when you smuggle firearms into a military base; when you threaten your mother-in-law – you SHOULD BE IN JAIL.
Apparently, not if you’re Devin Kelley, the lunatic who massacred faithful church-goers at worship in Sutherland Springs, TX on Sunday morning.
With so many gun laws on the books, why do the institutions tasked with protecting life, liberty and property fail to do so?
With all the rage from the radical Left about how we need more gun laws to protect innocent life, why are not the current laws at least not enforced to the fullest extent?
If current gun laws were enforced, 26 lives would not have been lost over the weekend.
26 men, women and young children would still be alive worshipping their God.
Instead, they were sent to early graves by a madman who illegally obtained up to five firearms.
According to a report by WFAA, Kelley even escaped a mental institution and attempted to smuggle weapons into a military base in New Mexico. The report reads:
El Paso police arrested Devin Kelley on June 7, 2012, at a Greyhound bus station a stone’s throw from the U.S.-Mexico border after he escaped the Peak Behavioral Health Services facility about 12 miles away in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, according to the police report…. Sunland Park officers told their Texas colleagues that Kelley “was a danger to himself and others as he had already been caught sneaking firearms” onto Holloman Air Force Base and that Kelley “was attempting to carry out death threats that [he] had made on his military chain of command.
It’s unthinkable to think that someone like this human piece of garbage – who cracked the skull of an infant and beat his wife, who tortured a defenseless animal, and who had even solicited a 13-year-old child was walking around as free as a law-abiding citizen.
The only time he was in jail was after his domestic assault conviction, for which he served a mere 12 months. Afterwards, the Air Force served him with a dishonorable discharge. Good for them, except they apparently neglected to inform the FBI so that they could put him on a blacklist.
As a result, he passed enough background checks to obtain firearms.
It’s terrifying to imagine that others like Kelley are out there, waiting to strike – yearning for massacre. Just 7 years ago, in 2010, close to 150,000 felons attempted to purchase firearms and were denied. Even attempting to purchase a firearm as a felon is against the law, for which only a few thousand were prosecuted thereafter.
All of this goes to show that what we need isn’t more gun laws – it isn’t the Republican party caving to the “EVIL NRA” as the Left loves to chant. It’s the fact that for eight years the Obama Admnistration used the FBI and the military as its very own experimentation grounds.
