Diversity at the Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla.

The shooting left four people dead and 12 people wounded. The attacker has been identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, an aviation officer in the Saudi Air Force. The shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism. Interestingly, "[i]n the aftermath of the attacks on 9/11, Newsweek reported that three of the hijackers had the addresses on their driver’s licenses listed as being at NAS Pensacola."

      Being a naval facility, the possession of firearms is heavily regulated. It is, for all intents and purposes, a gun-free zone. Access is also very restricted, requiring a DoD identification or identification complying with the Real ID Act of 2005. And none of it worked.
