Most importantly, in my eyes at least, is the definition of adjudicated as mentally defective:
ADJUDICATED AS A MENTAL DEFECTIVE
A. A determination by a court, board, commission, or other lawful authority that a person, as a result of marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease:
1. Is a danger to himself or to others; or
2. Lacks the mental capacity to contract or manage his own affairs.
B. The term shall includeâ€"
1. A finding of insanity by a court in a criminal case; and
2. Those persons found incompetent to stand trial or found not guilty by reason of lack of mental responsibility pursuant to articles 50a and 72b of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, 10 U.S.C. 850a, 876b.

I think they are saying that under the ATF's definition, he should have been listed as prohibited. Virginia was going by whether he was treated as an inpatient or outpatient.

The ATF seems to be saying that a judgment that he was a danger to himself or others should have put him on the list. That the ruling is the qualifier, not whether he was sent to inpatient or outpatient.

Which I think is how Virginia's Governor claimed to fix the loophole he slipped through.

I think we all know that if he would have been denied at those two gun shops, he would have found a gun in other ways.

Yes but breaking a law is different than slipping through one.

Regardless, it was against University rules to have a gun on campus. Not to mention that little murder law that he broke 32 times and attempted to murder dozens more.

He broke stalking laws as well before the murder spree.
