Background Checks? Check and Double Check.

Navy Yard Shooting: Stuck on Stupid First, he was a former member of the military and passed those background checks.
Second, he has a concealed carry permit, and made it through those checks. He had just recently gotten clearance to be on the Navy Yard as a civilian contractor. As with enlisted, civilian contractors also have to be background checked. Just LAST WEEK he purchased a shot gun in Virginia and passed the Federal background checks for that purchase. This man was background checked to the nth degree. Even after his arrests for gun issues, and psychiatric issues, he was given the civilian contractor clearance and gun permit.

Bottom line: It's not flawed laws and regulations, it's flawed implementation and enforcement. Incompetent, unmotivated square-fillers GS-11 and below. Deal with them in any department and see for yourself.

A black man who is not a cretin, has no record, and has been walked through a few open doors is likely to be promoted one level past his level of competence, which inevitably makes him the dumbest person in the room. This is not a path to mental health.

An arrest is not a charge; a charge is not a conviction.

All of those lesser things are a blurry flurry of paperwork that may be retained or not; that may be accessible or not. And then you come to the vast piles of files that have to be processed, and unless a red flag sticks out, the file is processed.

The surveillance state may be here, but someone has to sift through all of that stuff and say 'Hold'. Even if the computers filter, someone has to make the final call and those people are as overloaded with info and and cramped with time as are the people processing the VA's paperwork.

George Orwell meets bureaucratic inertia; Winston Smith fathers four children with Julia before O'Brien (just before his retirement party) actually hears about Smith and then tosses the file because it would ruin his record with the Party and jeopardize his retirement pension and benefits. Big Brother continues babbling on the telescreens as things are swept away to keep everything looking good and all reports continue to be filed in proper form and on time - content be damned.

For Kiddo 2, I bought a $25 diaper bag from Walmart. 2 was a girl so I wanted something super girly. Walmart had a pink and brown bag that was very cute and I wouldn be worried about it being thrown up or pooped on because if it couldn be washed out it could always be replaced since it is very affordable.
