It was November of 2017 when Devin Patrick Kelley shot and killed 26 people and wounded 22 more at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, just east of San Antonio. Leftist ghouls like Chelsea Handler laid the blame at the feet of Republicans:

Now, a judge has ruled that the federal government bears 60 percent of the liability in a suit brought by survivors and relatives who claimed that Kelley should not have been able to purchase the firearms he used, clearing a background check despite a disqualifying offense when he was serving in the Air Force. It turned out that Kelley had not been entered into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), so the system failed.

“Moreover, the evidence shows that — had the Government done its job and properly reported Kelley’s information into the background check system — it is more likely than not that Kelley would have been deterred from carrying out the Church shooting,” wrote Judge Xavier Rodriguez.
