FBI: Weapons In Lawmaker Shooting Purchased Legally


The man who opened fire on a baseball practice for Republican lawmakers on Wednesday appears to have purchased his guns legally, the FBI said Thursday.

The shooter, who was identified as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., was shot by law enforcement officials during the attack and later died of his wounds.

Two weapons — a 9mm handgun and a 7.62 caliber rifle — were recovered from the scene and traced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“ATF has conducted traces on these weapons and has determined that both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees,” the FBI said in a statement. “We currently have no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful.” Read more at The Hill.




  1. The problem is not the guns and weapons. It’s the Deep State’s (CIA) black operation funded by George Soros, a Nazi collaborator, self-hating Jew. The murderer shot the guy with clear instructions “from above” which was meant as a warning to other conservative Congress members who oppose the Deep State’s agenda who are still fuming that their appointee (Hillary Clinton) did not become president after their promise the seat to her no matter how, by fair means or foul.
