Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

His "criminal record...should have prevented those purchases."

BUT: "the Air Force also acknowledged it inexplicably failed to enter his conviction into a government database that all licensed firearms dealers are required to use to screen prospective gun buyers for their criminal history.

Federal law prohibits anyone from selling a gun to someone who has been convicted of a crime involving domestic violence against a spouse or child."

SO, he SHOULDN'T have been able to buy a gun, but the system FAILED the people...

Your point remains: what this has to do with his cell phone, surely no one will explain to us.
