Texas Church-Shooting Survivors, Families Awarded More Than $230 Million From U.S. Government

“The U.S. government must pay just over $230 million to the survivors and families of victims of a 2017 mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, a federal judge ruled Monday.”

“Air Force officials neglected to add the Sutherland Springs shooter, a former airman who had been convicted of domestic assault, to a federal database that would have barred him from legally buying the firearm he used to open fire on a church in the rural Texas town. The massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history and one of the deadliest ever in the U.S.”

This is the first reporting on this that I’ve seen. The mainstream media isn’t reporting it for some reason. The article mentions other cases where the Federal gov’t has been ordered to pay heavy fees for similar cases where they haven’t done their job.
