THE PROBLEM ISN’T THE GUNS, THE PROBLEM MAY BE THE DIRECTION FROM ABOVE IN THE FBI …
Not only was the terrorist gunman Omar Mateen investigated twice by the FBI for potential terrorist behavior in the past, but prior to the Orlando night club shooting where 49 people were slaughtered a gun store owner called the FBI regarding Mateen. The co-owner of a Florida gun store, Lotus Gunworks, says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition. We are told as citizens to be aware and report things that are unusual.
Maybe, just maybe Barack Obama and Democrats, who would use a tragedy that was a result of radical-Islamic terrorism, for their own liberal anti-gun agenda, maybe this more about a government agency that seems to have restrictive rules in doing their job. How is it that Mateen, like the Boston Marathon terrorist brothers slipped through the cracks? Every indication would point to the fact that they were vulnerable to be swayed to terrorism. Some how the FBI thought differently. A note to Barack Obama, former co-workers stated that Mateen was a ticking time bomb and some how the FBI said no. So if you really stand in solidarity with law-abiding Americans and not just pandering for your anti-Second Amendment agenda, you will have to admit, the government got it wrong and We the People had it right. It was not a gun that killed 49 innocent people at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida, it was your inability to define the enemy and deal with terrorism. So who is the JV now Mr. President?
The co-owner of a Florida gun store says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition.
Robbie Abell, co-owner of Lotus Gunworks, said Thursday his workers had a gut feeling about Mateen when he came to the store four or five weeks ago.
Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, according to Abell, but was told the store didn’t carry it. He then made a phone call and spoke in Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition, but employees did not sell it to him.
Abell told reporters “we contacted FBI direct” after Mateen left the store but he did not elaborate on how investigators responded. He believed his employees did what they should have done, Abell said.
Law enforcement officials have told CBS News at this point, they have not found any evidence that the gun shop contacted police about Mateen’s alleged suspicious behavior.
So before you decide to take people’s guns away, maybe you might want to adequately have the FBI investigate those that fit all the descriptions of a terrorist. Do I dare say it, how about the FBI profile Muslim extremists?
WHAT DID SHE KNOW AND WHY DIDN’T SHE SAY ANYTHING?
Is it possible that the deadliest mass shooting in American history could have easily been prevented? It certainly is starting to look that way. A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife, Noor Salman, of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub. Possible criminal charges could be brought against her. As reported at NBC News, Noor Salman feared he was going to attack a gay nightclub overnight Saturday and pleaded with him not to do anything violent, but failed to warn police after he left. WHO DOES THIS? How on earth do you dot say something? She feared he was going to go to the Pulse nightclub and shoot someone and she still did not notify the authorities. UNREAL.
A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub, and criminal charges could be brought against her early as Wednesday, a law enforcement source said.
Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, knew of his plans for what became the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, said the law enforcement source who has been briefed on the matter.
“It appears she had some knowledge of what was going on,” said U.S. Senator Angus King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which received a briefing on the attack.
“She definitely is, I guess you would say, a person of interest right now and appears to be cooperating and can provide us with some important information,” King told CNN.
Salman was with Mateen when he cased out possible targets for an attack in the past two months, including the Disney World resort in April, then a shopping complex called Disney Springs and the Pulse nightclub in early June, CNN and NBC reported.
WOW … DID YOU EVER THINK THIS WOULD HAPPEN … LIBS ON THE VIEW AGREE WITH DONALD TRUMP.
Amazing, simply amazing … from the gals on the view came the following, they thought Donald Trump sounded reasonable in response to the terrorist attack in Brussels and what he would do if he were the president of the United States. Terrorism and the vile and senseless murder of innocent individuals is finally even reaching the most liberal among us that leadership is needed, forceful leadership. Not a muted response to terrorism like what Hillary Clinton did following the terror event. Or like Barack Obama attending a baseball game in Cuba and pretending like ISIS is the JV.
They called Donald Trump, the voice of reason. This is huge folks. The View just picked The Donald over Hillary on terror.

HE DID WHAT MATE …
19 year old Sevdet Ramadan Besim has been charged with plotting to target police with a kangaroo packed with explosives in an ISIS terror attack in Melbourne, Australia.

A Melbourne teenager allegedly discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with an Islamic State symbol and setting it loose on police officers.
Sevdet Ramadan Besim, 19, of Hallam, is accused of plotting an Anzac Day terror attack in Melbourne that would have included a beheading.
He was committed to trial in the Supreme Court on Thursday after pleading not guilty to four charges.
In a prosecution summary against Mr Besim tendered to court, police allege the pair spoke on March 16 last year, during which they discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives and letting it loose on police.
“The conversation continues with Besim detailing what he did that day and they have a general discussion around animals and wildlife in Australia, including a suggestion that a kangaroo could be packed with C4 explosive, painted with the IS symbol and let loose on police officers,” the summary says.
Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett Ambushed by 30 Year Old Edward Archer … Update: Suspect Confessed He Did it in the Name of Islam
THANK GOD, NOT ALLAH THAT POLICE OFFICER JESSEE HARTNETT IS ALIVE …
In what can only be described as a heinous and vile act of cowardice, Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett is lucky to be alive after he was ambushed at shot numerous times at point-blank range. The suspect, 33 year old Edward Archer, fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night. According to reports, the suspect confessed and stated he shot the officer in the name of Islam.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross described the attack as an execution attempt.
I just have to tell you, when you look at the video–we have video that captured all of this–it’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. This guy tried to execute the police officer. It’s amazing he’s alive,” Ross said at a press conference Friday morning.
Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.
Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer, identified as 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired nearly a dozen shots through the driver’s side of the car.
“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Officer Hartnett was heard yelling on police radio.
Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”
The alleged radical Islamic gunman accused of shooting a Philadelphia cop used a stolen police gun in the attempted “assassination” and pledged allegiance to ISIS as he confessed to the harrowing ambush, officials said.
Suspected shooter Edward Archer fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night, police said. The five-year force veteran was hit three times and suffered a broken arm and nerve damage — but was still able to chase after his assailant and fire at the fleeing gunman.
Archer, who was shot three times by the cop he targeted, was taken into custody shortly after the attack and confessed to the ambush, police said at a Friday press conference.
“He stated that he pledges his allegiance to Islamic State. He praises Allah, and that was the reason he was called to do this,” said Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark.
