FBI never even VISITED gun store after owner reported Orlando jihad killer when he tried to buy ammo; surveillance has been ERASED

23

Last Friday, I reported that Robbie Abell, owner of a Florida gun shop, reported Omar Mateen after he came in asking to buy body armor and ammo. Now it comes out that the FBI didn’t even bother to visit the store after Abell’s report. Were they too busy conducting “outreach” at the local mosque?

“FBI never even VISITED the gun store after owner reported suspicious Omar last month when he tried to buy ammo and surveillance has since been erased,” by Alexandra Genova and Mia De Graaf, Dailymail.com, June 17, 2016:

A gun store owner who reported Orlando shooter Omar Mateen to authorities weeks before the massacre has said the FBI did not investigate the store and that no copies of surveillance had been taken.

Robbie Abell, co-owner of Lotus Gunworks, told ABC news that while there was a follow-up conversation with agents, the FBI never visited the south Florida store after he alerted them and failed to investigate further.

Mateen came into the store in May and asked for heavy-duty body armor like the kind used by law enforcement, which they did not sell.

After the 29-year-old was denied he asked to buy bulk ammunition. The request was shut down by staff who refused to sell him anything else.

Speaking Thursday Abell said: ‘He slipped through the cracks.’

He also told how staffers had contacted the FBI after the shooting to remind them about their run-in, but the store’s surveillance tape had since been overwritten….

But even after Abell’s report, the 29-year-old self-radicalized gunman obtained an AR-15 and a semiautomatic pistol from another store in the area, bought stacks of ammunition, then opened fire at Pulse nightclub, where he killed 49 people and wounded 53….

What arrant nonsense. How does the criminally clueless Daily Mail know that he was “self-radicalized? They don’t. It just fits their narrative of how Islam is a religion of peace but its adherents are peculiarly and inexplicably susceptible to being “radicalized” by shadowy forces on the Internet who are somehow able to overwhelm years of teaching of the benign, peaceful Islam that the Daily Mail is sure is taught in every mosque in the West.

    One more piece of evidence that proves that the FBI is dirty.

    Just proves that the whole thing was a set-up, a false flag event. You can count on there being many more such “Mass Shootings” until Obama and his Leftist Comrades are successful in voiding the Second Amendment completely for all intents and purposes.

    Proves who is sucking Sharia Muslim butt..FBI/CIA etc…all part of the plan to steal our 2nd Amendment from us…
    Lock and Load America…Semper-Fi…
    Their was plenty in Omar’s background to red flag him as a possible Muslim loose cannon …

    worldwide- everyone needs protection that can be quickly administered-
    and it must be lethal. if you do not want the hassle of registering a firearm
    there is another way to have power in your pocket-
    the law allows for the direct purchase of a cap and ball black powder revolver-
    no registering it- unregulated-(for now anyway) and the purchase of what is called
    a conversion cylinder– take out the original cylinder that is cap and ball-
    and replace it with a conversion cylinder to accept modern ammunition-
    when the conversion cylinder is put into the revolver it technically becomes
    a firearm- but when it is taken out of the revolver the revolver reverts to a
    non regulated non-firearm.

    check gunbroker and google for
    conversion cylinder for cap and ball naa

    Obama’s transformed America is a dangerous place to live.

    The feral bozo’s of islamification know perfectly well what they are doing, evidence that cannot be contaminated as in San Bernardino, covered by high level pronouncements of lies like “workplace violence” can be allowed to time out, as if delayed, chances of it being preserved diminish rapidly.

      Not to quibble, Matt… but I visited the old East German city of Bitterfeld once… It was a place built around the chemical industry. The sky actually was yellow. As the train approached, we could see a vast, yellow, dome-like feature above the city. It was an air mass of pollution from the plants. Kind of like visiting Wash DC anymore… except there are no chem plants there. Wash DC stinks yellow for other reasons.

        The skies were yellow and one in ten East Germans were on the books as agents of the Stasi secret police. Out of this cauldron of evil – Merkel Queen of Lies.

    Strange isn’t it? Seems the only religion that can be radicalized to kill and destroy at random or otherwise is the Religion of Islam

    Islam is about as benign as Rabies

    People need to BURN UP the phone lines of the U.S. Sargeant at Arms –
    the ONLY man who can Constitutionally arrest Obama! His name is Andrew
    B. Willeson and his phone number is 202-224-2341.

    Obama has NOT upheld his oath of office and American citizens MUST demand he be removed from office – NOW!

    Gays take a while to build up the strength and desire to “COME OUT” . It is time that Islamists in the police and the government “COME OUT’ too so that we know where the Judas Iscariots are.

  • Robert Batchelor

    Yes, how is it the only people radicalized are Muslims? Why is it we never hear about Christians, Jews, or Hindus being radicalized?

    Every FFL (Federal Firearms Licensee) has strict comoliance with the law as an overriding concern and business model. Too bad the same cannot be said of the FBI.

    IRS audit coming his way.

    This calls for an intelligent response. GRRRRRR!!!
