Goldy, do you really think the only problem in the case you keep referring to was the shooter's ability to purchase another firearm? Or that he wouldn't have easily been able to find a seller willing to sell to him without a check? (Despite his wife's assertions to the contrary, it would appear that he already owned firearms and did not turn them in on the Judge's demand)
Here's a couple quotes:
"Haughton ultimately was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct/domestic abuse. The case was dismissed when Haughton's wife and a police officer on the scene did not show, according to records."
"Zina Haughton told police her husband had no guns, but one of the officers on the scene knew from past calls that he was a Marine veteran, who may have had a gun and knew how to use one.
That's when officers spotted Radcliffe Haughton standing in a window.
"He slid open the curtains," the complaint says. "The defendant pointed a long-barreled black object out the window. He aimed this long-barreled object at Zina Haughton who stood three feet away from officers outside.""
