The Florida gun dealer who sold a handgun and a rifle to the Orlando massacre suspect said Monday that his conscience is clear.
"It's horrible but I don't make the laws. I abide by them," Ed Henson of the St. Lucie Shooting Center, a range and gun shop in Port Saint Lucie, not far from where nightclub shooter Omar Mateen lived.
"My heartfelt condolences for the family and victims and I can't imagine the horror they face," Henson, a retired NYPD police officer, added. "I did everything by the book. I'm not going to be made into a villain."
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms confirmed on Sunday evening that Mateen was carrying a .223 caliber AR-type rifle and a 9mm semiautomatic pistol when he opened fire at the Pulse club, killing 49 and injuring more than 50.
