A Texas sporting goods store down the law on the sale of an AR-15-style rifles and large-capacity magazine to a man who later became a mass murder in a San Antonio-area church, the federal prosecutors argued in a court filing.

Devin and Patrick Kelley, who fatally shot himself as authorities hunted for him after the bloody carnage at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, in 2017, was not considered to be a purchase, because he used to have a Colorado driver’s license as identification, the public prosecutor’s office, Paul, David Stern wrote it.


“The sale of this gun would be illegal in Colorado,” Stern said, referring to a Model 8500 Ruger AR-556 is that the authorities are saying that the Captain bought it from Academy Sports + Outdoors.

In 2017, The Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the state had refused the Captain for a gun permit, and he may not have been legally allowed to be in possession of a firearm, the BBC reported.

Kelley was fired at least 450 rounds at the church, and the killing of more than two dozen people and injuring 20 more, authorities said. A neighborhood resident was shot dead, and wounded Captain before the killer drove away, and, ultimately, the end-of-life of its own, according to authorities.

Kelly, a former pilot, he had a background from the capture of his wife and stepson, abuse of animals is to escape to a mental health clinic, and court-martialed, the BBC reported.

The Department of Justice also argued that federal workers should be protected from legal action, but in May, U.s. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez in San Antonio has ruled that the government should not be protected.


Academy Sports + Outdoors operates more than 250 stores in 16 states and posted $4.9 billion in revenue for the fiscal year that ended in February, a company spokeswoman told the Associated Press. She would not comment on the federal court and the filing of the AP will be added.

Jamal Alsaffar, an attorney for the families of the victims, said the claimants expect that for the federal authorities to investigate the Academy’s history and the history of gun sales, for example, firearms sales, which would have been prohibited.
