Failure to report court-martial convictions leads to lawsuit by three cities

Politico reports:
The cities of New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco have filed suit against the Pentagon for repeatedly failing to report military convictions to a federal database designed to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.

The lawsuit was filed in federal district court in Virginia on Friday in cooperation with former Arizona Democratic congresswoman and shooting victim Gabby Giffords’ gun control advocacy group.
Richard A. Oppel Jr.'s New York Times article about the case is available online here.
