The failure of background checks - felon gets his guns

Postby Bruenor » Tue May 29, 2018 8:07 pm

What are they doing over there, if this one can get through.. FBI fails again, starting to become a common theme.
A convicted felon, who was found “not guilty by reason of insanity” when he stabbed his sister in 2009 and then a manager at a Walmart in 2014, filled out a Form 4473 at a gun shop, lying multiple times while doing so.

Then, somehow, his background check was approved by the FBI in mere minutes, and he purchased two brand new handguns.

The convicted felon with mental problems then used one of those guns to shoot his landlord when he came calling for the rent money about six hours later.

This story from says Kenan Abraman, aka Rodney Patterson, then barricaded himself in his apartment.

“We found him behind the door. He was wearing a helmet, a motorcycle type helmet, a lot of thick clothing along with two firearms and some knives,” Muncie Police Detective Nathan Sloan said in the story.

Abraman’s rap sheet also included charges of theft, robbery, and criminal recklessness. How he passed the background check is a mystery. State police have laid the blame squarely at the foot of the FBI, which is responsible for conducting background checks for gun purchases.
