After struggling to survive all too recently, two black-owned bookstores in Philadelphia — one believed to be the nation's oldest — are staging a comeback.

New York City, San Francisco and Philadelphia have teamed up to file a federal lawsuit against the Department of Defense. The suit argues that many service members who are disqualified from gun ownership weren't reported to the national background check system.
The suit follows last month's mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where a former U.S. Air Force member was able to buy a rifle and kill 26 churchgoers. The Air Force failed to alert the FBI to the shooter's criminal history, which should have prevented the purchase.
"The background check system only works if it contains the proper records," Mayor Jim Kenney said of the suit.
