U.S. Air Force airmanA conservative activist finds it troubling that the Air Force recruiters under the Obama administration apparently ignored or didn't care about the disciplinary problems the Texas church shooter had in high school.

More information is coming to light about Devin Patrick Kelley in the wake of the massacre at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Records at the New Braunfels School District reveal that Kelley had disciplinary problems, including a suspension during his sophomore year after a drug-related incident. He was sent to an alternative school for two months, and the records go on to note that he was suspended twice as a junior and three times as a senior for reasons including "insubordination," ''profane language/gestures," and "dishonest/false records."

His records also reveal he suffered from ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. All things considered, Gary Bauer of American Values finds it appalling that Kelley was able to enlist in the Air Force.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"Under the Obama administration the Air Force took this guy's application to join the Air Force and accepted it either without doing a checking or doing a checking and not caring what his background was," Bauer submits.

He continues to report more troubling information.

"After he assaulted his wife and his step-child and was ejected from the Air Force … the bureaucracy of the Air Force under President Obama did not fulfill their legal obligation to report his name and identifying information to the national data bank that prohibits people from buying a firearm," Bauer points out.

The conservative activist is, however, encouraged that things seem to be poised to change under President Trump.
