Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said the gunman who opened fire Saturday in the Midland-Odessa region of Texas had “previously failed a gun purchase background check.”

Abbott also said the gunman did not pass a check to acquire the gun used in Saturday’s attack:

Not only did the Odessa gunman have a criminal history...

...he also previously failed a gun purchase background check in Texas...

...& he didn’t go thru a background check for the gun he used in Odessa.

We must keep guns out of criminals’ hands. https://www.statesman.com/news/20190901 ... cords-show

Nearly every mass shooter of the last decade acquired his guns via a background check, attackers who did not go through background checks are outliers who usually steal the guns the they use. One such outlier, the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School attacker, stole the guns he used to kill 26 people at the school.

The Hill reports “it is unclear” how the Midland attacker acquired the gun he used to shoot innocents.
