17. It sounds like the police department really dropped the ball
We actually have some fairly decent gun laws in this state. To buy a regular hunting rifle or shotgun here in MN, you only need to submit to a standard NICS background check at the gun store. In order to purchase a handgun or pistol-gripped assault rifle, however, you need a permit to purchase them first (this is NOT the same as a permit to carry, you need to complete a separate class first for that). That means going into the local police station, filling out 2 pages of paperwork, and waiting approximately 2 weeks while the police (supposedly) conduct a thorough background check, one far more detailed than the NICS check you undergo at the store. That permit must be renewed every 2 years to keep it valid.
If they issued him that permit, either someone in the station REALLY screwed up, or there are some serious deficiencies in his criminal record as recorded by the state.
