At least 70,000 with outstanding warrants purged from files used for gun checks

The names were taken out after the FBI in February (under the Trump administration) changed its legal interpretation of “fugitive from justice” to say it pertains only to wanted people who have crossed state lines.

It is unclear how many people may have bought guns since February who previously would have been prohibited from doing so.

Just another Obama era screwup

In a 2016 report, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz urged the Justice Department to address the disagreement "as soon as possible." Late last year, before President Trump took office, the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel sided with ATF and narrowed the definition of fugitives, according to law enforcement officials. The office said that gun purchases could be denied only to fugitives who cross state lines.

Ah, yes, because fugitives who don't cross state lines aren't dangerous and won't ever kill anyone.
