In the months before he shot and killed two Westerville police officers, Quentin Smith had practiced his aim at a New Albany firing range.

Smith was a convicted felon, which made it illegal for him to own or possess a firearm. Yet he had access to the gun range and carried protective eyewear and shooting targets in the trunk of his car.

Does your organization have a policy against not hiring felons or people convicted of a crime? On one hand, when hiring employees with criminal records, employers are at risk of negligent hiring if they fail to do their due diligence in investigating the employee’s background insofar as it relates to the

The jury that convicted Smith of killing officers Eric Joering and Anthony Morelli also heard testimony about a boastful comment Smith made while in jail awaiting trial about his "surgical" precision with firearms.

A review by The Dispatch found there are no federal or state laws or regulations requiring firing ranges to do background checks on those who patronize those businesses.

Federal and state firearm laws require background checks when a gun is purchased through a licensed firearms dealer. But there is no available way — except an unofficial Internet search — to run a background check on someone who is looking to rent a firearm at a range or who brings their own firearm to shoot.

And according to one gun range owner, that's something that can't be easily fixed.

Because background checks are not enforced. Those who fail a firearms background check Do you mean “Universal Background Checks ” which actually has nothing to do with making background checks better. If you mean enforcing the laws we have and prosecuting felons who try to buy guns.

"Most people who are shooting, unless it was state law, they wouldn't go for that," Eric Delbert, co-owner of L.E.P.D. firing range on the Northwest Side, said of background checks before using a range.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien, who led the prosecution of Smith, said requiring a background check to shoot at a firing range likely wouldn't make a large difference to those wanting to target shoot.

"If they can't do that, all they need to do is find somebody with a farm and go out on the back 40 and line up some cans to shoot at or shoot at the trees," he said. "My observation, and I may not be able to prove it, is felons don't usually go (to firing ranges) because they might get detected."

AimHi Family Firearms Center, the firing range in New Albany where Smith took target practice is similar to every firing range in that they require anyone who will be shooting to fill out a liability waiver, according to information presented at his trial,

Technically the background check itself is suppose to be free from the FBI. But generalky the way you get one is you go into your gun dealer. Once you complete the form truthfully and are not a convicted felon , habitual drug user, or have other criminal history that would make you a “prohibited person”

The waiver includes questions about felony offenses and convictions, misdemeanor domestic violence convictions, addiction, restraining orders and being barred from possessing a firearm. The participant is required to check a box saying they are not barred from handling or shooting firearms.

Karen Marvin, vice president at AimHi, said according to the business's records, Smith only visited the range once. The card in his wallet is issued to every person who comes to the business, watches the required safety video and signs the waiver.

And while AimHi was the firing range Smith frequented, Delbert said it could have happened at any range. He said he checked L.E.P.D.'s membership lists when he learned Smith had a membership at a range.

"There's nothing preventing it from happening here," he said.

Delbert said those who operate firing ranges are relying on the honesty of those coming to the range. And while there are instances where someone has been caught in possession of a firearm illegally at L.E.P.D., Delbert said an instance like what occurred with Smith could occur at any gun range.

Second Amendment Case May Fizzle Out at the Supreme Court

  Second Amendment Case May Fizzle Out at the Supreme Court The Supreme Court’s first Second Amendment case in nearly a decade may not end up changing anything, judging from questioning at arguments on Monday that focused largely on whether the repeal of a New York City law made the case challenging it moot. “What’s left of this case?”“What’s left of this case?” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asked. “The petitioners have gotten all of the relief they sought.

Check with the local employment office, some cities have programs for felons to get back to work. The overwhelming majority of employers will conduct background checks and find out about all of your charges and convictions, so it is best to disclose your criminal history when asked to do so.

He cited a case from 2015 when Abdirahman Mohamud, now 27, was arrested and charged with providing material support to a terror organization. Delbert said Mohamud had come to L.E.P.D. with a group of friends, most of whom did not speak much English, and demanded to train them himself.

"There were tell-tale things that didn't seem right," Delbert said.

The range contacted authorities, who were aware of Mohamud, and further investigation led to the Somalia native's arrest. Mohamud was eventually sentenced to 22 years in prison.

"The only reason they usually get caught is criminals do stupid things," Delbert said.

In another instance, Delbert said, a man was caught after being observed by those working at L.E.P.D. wiping his fingerprints off the bullets he was using before loading them into his handgun.

Dean Rieck, executive director of Buckeye Firearms Association, said having regulations regarding firing range background checks is headed down a road that could become ridiculous, such as requiring background checks to subscribe to firearms-related publications.

"It's an unusual circumstance," Rieck said. "It would discourage people from going to a proper, well-organized shooting range. You would end up with the worst results."

State Sen. Cecil Thomas, D-Cincinnati, has been an advocate for firearm legislation and increased background checks. He said having a discussion surrounding background checks at firing ranges would be worthwhile.

Gun background checks are on pace to break record in 2019

  Gun background checks are on pace to break record in 2019 Background checks on gun purchases in the U.S. are climbing toward a record high this year, reflecting what the industry says is a rush by people to buy weapons in reaction to the Democratic presidential candidates' calls for tighter restrictions. By the end of November, more than 25.4 million background checks — generally seen as a strong indicator of gun sales — had been conducted by the FBI, putting 2019 on pace to break the record of 27.5 million set in 2016, the last full year President Barack Obama was in the White House. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

"If I introduced a bill that anyone who applies for a membership at a firing range must go through a background check, it would generate discussion but it won't go anywhere," Thomas said. "It's shocking to me to hear that this individual — who was obviously under [court order to not possess a firearm] — would be able to go into a firing range and perfect his ability and he turns around and kills two police officers. I think there needs to be some discussion around that scenario."

Thomas, who is a former law enforcement officer for Cincinnati police, said any regulations would have to be mindful of the business owners and their ability to operate.

Tom Brady not blaming referees for crucial mistakes in loss to Chiefs .
The New England Patriots were outplayed by the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but you could easily make the argument that they would have had a better chance to win had it not been for some horrible officiating. Tom Brady is not willing to use that as an excuse, however. As almost anyone could have predicted, Brady took the high road during his weekly interview on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Morning Show” on Monday. He said having calls not go your way is part of the game and that it’s up to the Patriots to do a better job with the things they can control.
