There Is No Domestic Violence Loophole in Military Law

Earlier today, Arizona senator Jeff Flake tweeted that he was working with New Mexico’s Martin Heinrich on legislation in response to the Texas church massacre:

The Air Force dropped the ball. There was no “loophole” that applied to the Texas shooter. There is no legislative fix necessary to prevent similar criminals from obtaining weapons in the future. The necessary law already exists. The government simply needs to do its job.
