The Times, which reviewed an FBI inventory of the home of Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, a married couple killed in a shootout with police, said that among the items the FBI found in their apartment were two weapons invoices from the websites Cheaper Than Dirt and Bud’s Gun Shop.
According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, all the weapons used by the shooters were purchased legally in the U.S.
Bud’s Gun Shop, in particular, takes pains to cater to California residents who want to quickly and easily buy guns despite the state’s relatively harder restrictions. “We have dedicated an entire category of our website to help get you the firearms you need!” the site reads, and it contains special pages dedicated to handguns, rifles, and shotguns specifically approved for purchase in California.
The FBI announced Saturday that they were indeed investigating the attack as an act of terrorism.
