>> Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of a government database used for background checks on gun buyers on Wednesday. Sessions said the November 5th church shooting in Southerland Springs, Texas showed that not all the necessary information was being added to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS.
The shooter, Devin Kelley, was an airforce veteran court marshalled for assaulting his wife and son. Kelley's conviction should have barred him from buying guns, but the Air Force had failed to provide the necessary information on Kelly to the FBI's criminal database. Sessions want the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to do a quote, comprehensive review of the database to make sure the Pentagon and other government agencies were properly reporting information.
Kelley killed 26 people during a church service, devastating the tiny town in rural Texas.
