Ahmed Alaklouk; illegal immigrant with an AR-style rifle

| March 13, 2018 | 65 Comments

22-year-old Ahmed Alaklouk, a Tunisian with Saudi Arabian citizenship is under arrest in Indiana. His student visa expired last September, but he’s still living in the US, in fact he owns a tire business. He also owned a half-dozen handguns and a “tricked out” Armalite-style rifle complete with scope and bump-stock.

According to the Indy Star the local cops started investigating him when hotel security saw him with his weapon collection near the local Women’s March in downtown Indianapolis. They discovered his expired visa at about the time he pulled his handguns on a couple of customers in his tire repair shop. So that got him arrested;

Alaklouk was charged in Marion Superior Court on Jan. 31 with two felony counts of criminal confinement, two felony counts of intimidation, one felony count of unlawful possession of a firearm and a battery misdemeanor.

The federal gun charge came Wednesday.

If convicted of the state charges, Alaklouk could face up to 16 years in state prison for each of two felony counts; up to six years each for two other counts; and up to 2 1/2 years for the fifth felony count.

If convicted of the federal gun crime, Alaklouk could face up to 10 years in federal prison.

Alaklouk claims that a customer gave him the rifle as a payment for work he did on the customer’s car. Non-US citizens aren’t allowed to possess firearms, but there you go.

    He’s just a dreamer. Illegals don’t do things against the law.

  2. Stoutguy says:

    So he guaranteed his stay in the USA.

  3. chooee lee says:

    So where did it mention his deportation?

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    Non-US citizens aren’t allowed to own firearms….

    Apparently, he forgot that part, because, you know, 14-year-old boys can own guns in the Middle East.

    • Yef says:

      I am pretty sure aliens with a permanent residence can own firearms. Let me google that.

      • E4 Mafia For Life. says:

        They can. There are several informative posts at calguns.net with trusted member non-resident legal aliens explaining the process.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        I am pretty sure you don’t read for comprehension or content, Yef. Try googling your brain instead of the internet occasionally.

        “His student visa expired last September, but he’s still living in the US…” – article.

        His visa EXPIRED. He should not be here, period.

        Moving on….

        • Yef says:

          Well, when you explain it like that, it does makes sense.

        • Hondo says:

          Actually, in this case Yef had a valid point. It is not categorically true to say that “Non-US citizens aren’t allowed to own firearms”. SOME non-US citizens residing in the US can legally own firearms. Others cannot.

          Those non-citizens in the US on an immigrant visa, or who have been granted permanent resident alien status, are permitted to own or possess firearms. Those here on nonimmigrant visas, or who are otherwise here illegally, are not.

          I’m reasonably sure a student visa is a nonimmigrant visa (I’ve seen sources that directly refer to the F1 student visa as a “nonimmigrant” visa and other sources that indicate the M1 student visa is a “temporary” visa, implying but not stating outright that it is also a nonimmigrant visa). I’m definitely sure that persons who overstay their student visas are here illegally.

          So while this guy was prohibited from owning firearms (he was here on a nonimmigrant visa and after its expiration was here illegally), Yef was correct in his assertion above.

      • SFC D says:

        Back to police call, Yef. 1SG hates cigarette butts on his grass.

    • Cowpill says:

      We have an asian kid on resident alien status here in Blacksburg who got bust with high capacity mags at the shooting range, he is cooling his heels waiting on a one way ticket home.

  5. Sgt Fon says:

    actually its only Non immigrants ( non-green card holders that are forbidden from possessing firearms and ammunition. here it is if you look at subsect 5

    Federal law (18 U.S.C. § 922[g][1-9]) prohibits certain individuals from possessing firearms,
    ammunition, or explosives. The penalty for violating this law is ten years imprisonment and/or a
    $250,000 fine. Further, 18 U.S.C. 3565(b)(2) (probation) and 3583(g)(2) (supervised release)
    makes it mandatory for the Court to revoke supervision for possession of a firearm.
    Specifically, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1-9) prohibits the following from possessing, shipping/
    transporting, or receiving any firearm or ammunition:
    (1) a person convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment exceeding one year;
    (2) a person who is a fugitive from justice;
    (3) a person who is an unlawful user of or who is addicted to a controlled substance;
    (4) a person who has been adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been admitted
    to a mental institution;
    (5) an alien who is unlawfully in the United States or who has been admitted to the
    United States under a nonimmigrant visa;
    (6) a person who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable
    conditions;
    (7) a person who, having been a citizen of the United States, renounces his citizenship;
    (8) a person subject to a court order that was issued after a hearing in which the person
    participated, which order restrains the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening
    an intimate partner or partner’s child, and which order includes a finding that the
    person is a credible threat to such partner or partner’s child, or by its terms prohibits
    the use, attempted use or threatened use of such force against such partner or
    partner’s child;
    (9) a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
    Possession of a firearm may be either actual or constructive. The latter has been defined as
    follows: “Constructive possession exists when a person knowingly has the power and intention at
    a given time of exercising dominion and control over the object or over the area in which the object
    is locate….” (See U.S. v Booth, et.al. 111 F.3d 2 [1st Cir. September 1997]). If you know the
    firearm is present in your residence, vehicle, etc., and if it can be shown that you have the ability to
    access and exercise control over that firearm personally or through another individual, then you
    could be considered to have constructive possession of the firearm. You would then be subject to
    new criminal charges and/or revocation of supervision. For these reasons, all firearms are to be
    removed from your residence during the term of supervision.

    • Steve1371 says:

      Thanks for clearing that up! I was getting nervous I was getting in over my head for treating my cousins to an on range orgy. Also teaching the German exchange student girl how to shoot a handgun. It all seemed perfectly innocent to me.

    • Jonp says:

      Nope. An nonimmigrant alien admitted to the US under a nonimmigration visa, in this case a student visa, is prohibited except under a few circumstances such as hunting, law enforcement of a friendly nation etc

      • Steve1371 says:

        S0… you are saying I should refrain from this type of entertainment in the future?

        • Jonp says:

          I would not get that worked up over it unless you have an atf agent with a stick up their ass hanging at your range. The exception “…admitted for lawful hunting or sporting purposes” would probably work for except if someone got all butthurt and pushed it although they are not admitted for, say, a target shooting competition

        • Graybeard says:

          Steve1371:
          From a strict legality standpoint, I believe it would turn on the legal definition of “possess” in 18 U.S.C. § 922[g][1-9] (above).

          I have allowed visiting non-citizens to shoot some of my firearms from time to time, myself, with me present.

          I’m working on the same idea (which may be wrong) that while it is unlawful for me to “possess” (own) a fully-automatic firearm, since I do not have the right legal paperwork, I am allowed to shoot one which is legally owned by another individual, at their range or on their property.

          My visitors did not “possess” (own) the firearm – even when they held it, but were shooting it on my property and on my range.

          I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on YouTube, but I suspect that by any common-sense understanding of the law you and I are not in a great deal of danger from any but a really rogue or anally-retentive LEO.

    • Bobo says:

      That looks strikingly like the yes/no questions that have to be answered on a Form 4473 before someone can purchase a firearm.

  6. Steve1371 says:

    Question. Non US citizens aren’t allowed to possess firearms. Does that mean if I have relatives visit here from say Ireland they can not enjoy a day at the range?
    Getting back to the story at hand, give this non declared member of ISIS an inclusive vacation at Gitmo.

  7. Roh-Dog says:

    If Obama had a son…with Syed Rizwan Farook.
    Good thing this didn’t happen in Kalifornia (or Konnecticit for that matter) they’d be apologizing for bothering him and paying his room, board and tuition.

    • Stoutguy says:

      But we are going to pay for room board and food for many years.

      • Roh-Dog says:

        But he EARNED it now. Besides, the Graybar Hotel ain’t that expensive if you’re talking about rehabilitation followed by a flight back to his shithole country of choice.
        If this guy could feloniously resist confinement and attempt to flee we could save the above expenses. You can’t make ‘em tho…

  8. 1610desig says:

    Reminds me of those Boston bomber assholes…seems he was gunning to be the top story of national news..fortunate preemption

  9. USAF (RET) says:

    But he was only trying to protect himself from the militant Amish.

  10. The Other Whitey says:

    Scope and bump stock, eh? Well, obviously he’s a fucking idiot. Glad they caught this dickhead before he hurt somebody, on purpose or otherwise. Hopefully this case features real enforcement of the laws on the books.

  11. USAF(Ret) says:

    He needed the guns to protect himself from those militant Amish.

    I hope that I did not double post.

  12. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Sounds like he wanted to act like an Amish Anarchist.

  13. Yef says:

    An Amish, a Buddhist and a Muslim walk into a bar…

  14. AZtoVA says:

    Charged with multiple gun-related crimes, but not being in the country illegally? Didn’t we have an election a year and a half ago on this?

  15. Dustoff says:

    Just think guys, if he could of made it to California, he’d be eligible to vote too. Jerry Brown says so.

  16. UpNorth says:

    Aloha Snackbar, cock sucker.

  17. E4 Mafia For Life. says:

    Again with the minimal charges.
    Used to be that a DA would charge a suspect with every count that was winnable in court then plea bargained down.
    The exception is typically multiple murder on questionable grounds/lacking evidence/witnesses where if one murder charge doesn’t stick the prosecution proceeds with the next victim.
    Or, the first murder lands the suspect in prison for “natural life” without possibility of parole or death sentence.
    What I see as an independent amateur Alchemist and expert on 12th Century Psychology publishing and a resident (legal) of The Democratik People’s Republik Of North Kalifornistaniraqkorea:
    2 felony counts of “criminal confinement”
    2 felony counts of “intimidation”
    7+ felony counts of “unlawful possession of a firearm”
    1 misdemeanor count of battery
    1 or more counts of “brandishing” a firearm or weapon (unless that’s what the “intimidation” counts are)
    1 count of unlawfully remaining in the US (whatever statute that is)
    Maybe owning or operating a business without a license unless the law doesn’t cover illegal immigrants that own/operate a business after their visa/permit expires.
    I don’t know Indiana law or if they are tough on crime.
    And that would be great if the sentences ran consecutively.

  18. OWB says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but it sounds like this guy is screaming for an all expense paid vacation at Gitmo.

    Did he have a business license for that tire shop? Was he paid up on B & O taxes? Wasn’t aware that Indiana encouraged illegal occupants to go into business. Oh, well. Very strange all around.

  19. Perry Gaskill says:

    It’s remarkable how some illegal immigrants can’t seem to parse the term “temporary student visa.” Here’s Ahmed, who is not only guilty of a bad haircut, but has also decided to apparently abandon his classes in Mid-East Gender Studies so he can run his own tire store. The entrepreneurial business model for the store, it should be mentioned, evidently being that you threaten to shoot customers who won’t pay extra for the deluxe whitewalls…

  20. lily says:

    It’s not hard to build one from home since conservatives want people to do it. The conservatives wrote all those manuals on how to buy your receiver for the AR15 build. I was hearing it on a conservative talk show by Bryan Suits. Ironically, a month after he was telling his audience about how to build an AR15 from home, a guy built one and went a shooting rampage at a school. Then all the sudden he got quiet about building AR15s from home.

  21. H Tom says:

    Hey, remember when you idiots used to claim that AR-style rifles are almost never used in mass shootings? Those were the days, weren’t they?

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      They’re still almost never used in mass shootings, dimbulb.

    • Graybeard says:

      So glad to see that someone still hasn’t got a clue what words in the English Language mean. /s

      I do not know where “H Tom” went to school, but either he should get a refund because he didn’t learn, or they should demand the diploma back because he didn’t learn.

      It is obvious that “H Tom” does not understand the meaning of words and has no grip on mathematics or logic.

      Sad, really.

    • Atkron says:

      I get the feeling you’re that guy that likes to think of himself as the smartest guy in the room, because nobody seems to challenge your opinion.

      The reality is they are struck speechless by your sheer stupidity; nor do they wish to play chess with a pigeon.

      Statistics man…look at the statistics, not the propaganda machine.

      • Graybeard says:

        Atkron, I fear that “H Tom” does not understand what the word “statistics” means, and is probably incapable of understanding statistics, simpliciter.

        Oh, well. At least everyone can identify the stupidest guy in the room when he is around.

      • Skyjumper says:

        The only time H Tom is the smartest person in the room is when he is the only one in the room, and even then that is up for grabs when a gnat flies in thru the window.

        Probably sat around in a circle, holding hands and singing Kumbaya and knows all of the words to “We are the world”.

        Fricken’ Schwachkopf!!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      The real question is: who is H Tom calling “you idiots”?

      Ain’t that kind of the big fat pot calling the kettle black?

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Most mass shootings are still done with pistols. Research, dickhead! You should try it some time.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Remember when you liberal idiots said illegals do not commit crimes?

      Except “illegals commit crimes” is rather easily proven.

  22. RM3(SS) says:

    Visa overstays. There’s tons of them and unless they call attention to themselves they are very low priority for ICE.
    Sometimes you get one like this guy that raises his hand and says “look at me!!”

  23. Yef says:

    Whoa, something smells.

    How is this guy a tunisian with saudi citizenship when saudis don’t grant citizenship unless you are rich?

    Let me google saudi citizenship. …..
