The FBI is moving to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the survivors of the Charleston, South Carolina church shooting who say that negligence perpetrated by the federal government allowed and enabled Dylann Roof to buy the .45-caliber handgun he used to commit the atrocity at Emanuel AME Church in 2015.

The attorneys for the three people who survived the attack and the estates on behalf of the five who were murdered inside the church argue that Roof’s prior arrest for drugs should have shown up via a background check, and that the FBI would have denied his gun purchase if the agency had done its job properly.

According to The Associated Press, Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon says that a clerk incorrectly entered the information regarding Roof’s prior arrest, which prevented an FBI examiner from finding the relevant details when Roof attempted the ultimately successful purchase.

The federal government filed papers Friday saying it is not at all liable for any failures involving the background check (or lack of a thorough background check) before he bought the gun.
