No, the law does not prevent ANYONE from selling a gun to someone convicted of a crime involving domestic violence against a spouse or child. It only bars licensed gun dealers

Really, you should at least try to educate yourself to a minimal level before you dive in and wind up showing off your ignorance. Let me help, see 18 USC § 922(d)(9) which states: (emphasis mine)

(d)It shall be unlawful for ANY PERSON to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person-

(9) has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

But why let facts get in the way of your bovine scatological diatribe? Not that any of that matters in this particular instance because the nut bar who shot up the church purchased the rifle at a licensed gun dealer because the Air Force failed to transmit the arrest data to the NICS database.

Based on the vast majority of gun rampage nutters no white men should be allowed to own guns from now on.

Again a simple google search could have helped you out. White and Hispanic folk are actually slightly under represented as mass shooters by population. Looks like you're 0 for 2. Really, google is your friend here. You might not look like an uninformed arse if you just look before spouting lies.
