One Comment on Whalen: Tighter gun control needed now

  • The naval shooter passed a background check for a top secret clearance in 2013,Despite the fact that he had a gun related incidents in 2004 and 2010. He was also the subject of a police report in Rhode Island. Do you believe that a state level background check is more comprehensive than a federal government check for top secret clearance?
