Obama Administration Failed To Prosecute For Lies On Gun Background Check Forms
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) in an interview with Shannon Bream on Fox News offered what could, at least, represent a first step: legal consequences for lying on background checks.
“This should have been stopped beforehand,” Cruz said of the Texas shooting in Sutherland Springs. “Under federal law, it was illegal for this individual to purchase a firearm.”

Cruz places the blame for the Air Force’s failure to report the shooter’s conviction for domestic abuse to federal authorities squarely on the Obama administration, saying: “The Obama administration didn’t report those convictions to the NCIS database.”
