Three major U.S. cities are suing the Department of Defense, saying the military failed to properly use the national background check system for guns. New York City, San Francisco and Philadelphia argue the D.O.D. failed to report significant numbers of military convictions to the FBI’s national background check system for gun sales, enabling the mass shooting of 26 people at a Texas church last month.
