Democrats will cry racism after this move by the U.S. Navy but would they be justified? Probably not. What else is new? After all, a Saudi national aviation student was behind the deaths of three people at the Pensacola Air Base. Also, six other Saudis were detained and three were caught filming the attack in its entirety. Therefore, it would seem as though this was the right move.

Here are the details…

AP-US–APNewsAlert

Navy says flight training suspended for about 175 Saudi Arabian students in wake of Florida base shooting Friday.

The Saudi Air Force lieutenant who killed three people with a 9 mm Glock bought the weapon legally, because federal law allows foreign nationals with a hunting license to buy guns. He may have been able to buy it with other exceptions to the law as well, the FBI said Tuesday.

More from Washington Examiner:

The Saudi Arabian citizen behind the mass shooting in Pensacola, Florida, legally purchased the gun used through a hunting license loophole.

On Friday, 21-year-old Mohammed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force, killed three sailors and wounded eight more at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where he was training. The gun used in the shooting, which is being investigated as an act of terrorism, was a 9mm Glock model 45 handgun.

Alshamrani made use of an exception under federal law that allowed him to purchase the weapon, according to a Tuesday statement from public affairs officer Amanda Videll of the FBI.
