Reports: Saudi Shooter Got Gun Legally

Obtained a license and bought weapon from local dealer

Multiple reports are indicating that the Saudi student who shot up the Naval Air Station in Pensacola Friday morning, killing three and wounding more acquired the weapon he used legally from a local dealer.

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force who was in the US as an aviation student, was able to buy a gun despite the fact that “nonimmigrant aliens” are not permitted to do so, according to NBC News.

The BATF notes that anyone admitted to the US under a nonimmigrant visa is typically “prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition,” however, those with a valid hunting license or permit, and those who were admitted for “lawful hunting or sporting purposes” are able to purchase firearms.

Alshamrani was able to get such a license, according to sources cited by NBC, allowing him to undergo a background check, which in Florida involves a three-day waiting period, per state law.

The Washington Post further notes that another ATF regulation allows non-citizens to possess firearms if they’re from “a friendly foreign government entering the United States on official law enforcement business.”

The development is even more remarkable given that the shooter had a twitter page that reportedly featured anti-American posts and glorified quotes from Osama Bin Laden, according to The SITE Intel Group.

While investigations are still ongoing into whether the attack was “terrorism”, it has been reported that the gunman hosted a “dinner party” prior to the attack, where guests watched mass shooting videos.

Further details that emerged over the weekend suggest that one of the victims, Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, a recent graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, acted heroically by making it outside the air station and informing the first response team where the shooter was, despite being gravely injured by at least five gunshots.

Ensign Watson, who would have gone on to be a military jet pilot, later died from the injuries, yet has been credited with saving countless lives with his actions.

Watson and two other sailors, Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters are said to have run toward the danger in an effort to save colleagues and friends.

The shooting, along with a prior incident at Pearl Harbor Naval shipyard on Wednesday in which two were killed, has again raised questions concerning military installations generally forbidding anyone from carrying a firearm, even if it is government-issued.

Piers Morgan Says Media Knows Identity of Police Officer Who Shot Ashli Babbitt

But are withholding it due to pressure from authorities.

Journalist Piers Morgan says the media knows the identity of the Capitol police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt dead on January 6 but isn’t reporting it due to pressure from authorities.

Babbitt was one of five people killed during the raid of the Capitol Building. Video footage of the incident showed the US Air Force veteran attempting to get through a set of locked doors inside the building before being shot in the neck.

The identity of the officer responsible for killing Babbitt remains unknown to this day.

However, journalist Piers Morgan revealed today that media outlets are fully aware of his name and background but are fearful of releasing the information due to warnings from law enforcement.

“I know who it is,” writes Morgan. “I know his name, his age, his rank, his family status and his service record.”

I know all this because DailyMail.com journalists did their job and found out, as I am sure have journalists from other news organizations.

Although I’m equally sure that many prestigious left-leaning news organizations – who ought to know better – have probably not even bothered.

Nobody has reported the information yet because there has been enormous pressure put on the media from the Capitol Police and the officer’s legal team not to do so for fear it would endanger his life.

Morgan went on to describe continued efforts to keep the officer’s identity a secret “a shameful failure of public transparency and justice.”

Babbitt’s family have also been rebuffed in efforts to find out the officer’s name, with her widower Aaron Babbitt being forced to file a lawsuit claiming the Metropolitan Police Department failed to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request.

Critics have contrasted the case to the death of George Floyd. Despite officer Derek Chauvin’s life clearly being put under risk, his identity was quickly revealed to the public.

President Donald Trump has recently used his platform to draw attention to the situation, while also asserting that he personally knows the identity of the officer involved.

“People are being treated unbelievably unfairly when you look at people in prison, and nothing happens to antifa, and they burn down cities and killed people,” Trump said Wednesday during a press conference. “There were no guns in the Capitol … except for the gun that shot Ashli Babbitt, and nobody knows who that man were [sic].”

John McAfee’s Wife Claims Spanish Authorities Are Overseeing a “Cover Up” of His Death

“They have something to hide.”

John McAfee’s wife claims that Spanish authorities are engaged in a “cover-up” of the software tycoon’s death by withholding information.

McAfee was found dead in his Barcelona jail cell last month after a Spanish court ruled that he would be extradited to the U.S., where he faced the rest of his life in jail for tax evasion.

Widower Janice McAfee continues to insist that foul play could have been involved, tweeting that authorities are dragging their feet on releasing information.

“There has been no since (sic) of urgency from the various Spanish authorities involved in the investigation into John’s death and there is clearly a cover up happening here concerning the events surrounding his death,” wrote McAfee.

“We have not received the death certificate, the official autopsy report or the official report from the prison,” she added. “I understand that things take time but the lack of cooperation from the Spanish authorities only confirms our suspicions that they have something to hide.”

Both Janice McAfee and the tycoon’s lawyer previously claimed there was no indication McAfee was suicidal before he allegedly took his own life.

McAfee repeatedly insisted in tweets and public statements that he was not planning on killing himself, asserting that he was “whacked” if that happened.

He also claimed on several occasions that he had gathered over 31 terabytes of data implicating deep state and CIA officials in criminal activity.

John McAfee’s Widow Says He Was Not Suicidal

Claims McAfee said he’d call her in the evening.

John McAfee’s widow says that her husband was not suicidal when she last spoke to him and told her he would call her later that evening.

McAfee was found dead on Wednesday hours after a Spanish court ruled that he would be extradited to the U.S., where he faced the rest of his life in jail for tax evasion.

Speaking outside the Spanish prison where the anti-virus software tycoon was found dead, Janice McAfee, said: “His last words to me were, ‘I love you and I will call you in the evening.”

“Those words are not words of somebody who is suicidal,” she added.

The widower asserted that a plan of action was already in place to deal with the extradition, with an appeal set to be lodged against the ruling.

“I blame the US authorities for this tragedy. Because of these politically motivated charges against him my husband is now dead,” she said.

As we highlight in the video below, McAfee’s lawyer also says there was no indication the tycoon was about to take his own life.

McAfee repeatedly insisted in tweets and public statements that he was not planning on killing himself, asserting that he was “whacked” if that happened.

However, others have suggested that McAfee may have wanted to make people believe that foul play was involved as a final snub to U.S. authorities.

McAfee claimed on several occasions that he had gathered over 31 terabytes of data implicating deep state and CIA officials in criminal activity.

Spanish authorities have said they will carry out a post-mortem examination on his body but that the results could take weeks to obtain.
