[Ed. – Kind of a no-brainer. The Fox News video running at the story link right now notes that Shamrani, the shooter, was able to purchase a weapon because he had obtained a game-hunting license – something the law allows foreigners on valid visas to do. It also notes that the handgun Shamrani used would not be used for hunting. But making that connection at the point of sale is something the gun seller would have to do.]
The U.S. Navy on Tuesday suspended nearly 300 Saudi students from flight training in response to the deadly shooting by a Saudi student last Friday in Pensacola, Fla., a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News.
Navy Commander Clay Doss said classroom and flight training will resume for other students this week.
He did not say how long the flight stand-down for Saudi students will continue.
Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old aviation student from Saudi Arabia, opened fire at Naval Air Station Pensacola, killing three military members and injuring eight others. Police shot and killed the Saudi gunman.
