24. The article says otherwise

There were apparently multiple lapses.

He transposed his first and middle name. Which is apparently enough to throw the system off track. Particularly since there is no requirement for a social security number or fingerprinting to prove identity. Since the application was accepted and passed through, it would seem there is also no requirement to show your ID to prove you are who you say you are.

Do you have to show ID to vote there? Apparently not to buy a gun.

The article also states that the police only have 7 days to accomplish their background check, not two weeks.

Then somehow his criminal record and mental health record didn't get attached to his file, so even if they connected him to his own record, he might still have passed. And, at least by the article, it seems that this is not an unknown or uncommon issue.
