Not Felon But Still Prohibited

The shooter appears to have been convicted of 3rd degree assault.

In Colorado this is a misdemeanor, but... is punishable by up to two years in prison.

ATF Form 4473, question 21.c:

Have you ever been convicted in any court, including a military court, of a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?

The shooter apparently passed a background check because they know the date he purchased the Ruger AR556 pistol used.

Just like the Texas church shooting, the prohibited person wasn't properly flagged.

These laws just don't work.  At all.

  1. Oh, those laws work, just not for their STATED purpose. They're very effective for their REAL purpose of turning everyone into a Felon.
