Official: Feds search home for link to gun in Texas shooting

DALLAS (AP) — A federal law enforcement official says ATF agents have executed a search warrant at the Lubbock, Texas, home of a man they believe was involved in the “transfer” of an AR-style rifle to the gunman who killed seven people in a Labor Day weekend mass shooting.

The official familiar with the investigation spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity in order to discuss the ongoing investigation into the shooting rampage that spanned from Midland to Odessa, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) south of Lubbock.

The official said federal agents are investigating whether the Lubbock man has been manufacturing firearms but said no arrests have yet been made.

ATF and FBI spokespeople confirmed the agencies conducted “law enforcement operations” in a residential part of Lubbock Wednesday but declined to elaborate.

1. Those who lend guns to those who can't pass background checks should be charged as accomplices

2. This can't really happen until the NICS is available for private sales

NICS: https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/nics

Opening this system via a local sheriff or PD office would make partners of everyone wanting to sell a gun and give them a way to avoid selling to someone dangerous and a way to avoid being held responsible as an accomplice.

Setting this up would be much cheaper than trying buy back millions of guns for hundreds or thousands a piece.
