In our news wrap Tuesday, the Texas gunman who killed 26 people was able to pass background checks despite a past escape from a mental health facility and a conviction the Air Force failed to enter into a database that would have blocked his gun purchases. Also, the Texas law cracking down on “sanctuary cities” for undocumented immigrants went before a federal appeals court in New Orleans.
