    From the article:

    "The car’s license plate included a symbol of the National Rifle Assn. on the left side and the bottom said, "Teaching Freedom.""

    Is this the Gay Bernie supporter?
    Via LA Times:
    Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.
    Early Sunday, there was a call to Santa Monica police of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.
    The car had Indiana plates. He did make comments that he was in town for the pride event in West Hllywood this weekend. Sources said they did not know of any connection between the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning and the Santa Monica incident, and the investigation has been taken over by FBI.
    The parade comes hours after the attack at the Orlando club that killed 50 people. At least 53 were injured in the deadliest shooting in American history after a gunman took hostages. The gunman has been identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, a U.S. law enforcement official said.

    Here’s the suspect arrested in LA.
    Checked his Facebook, there does not appear to be a relation to Islamic terrorism there.

    Maybe the ATF can make up a story of them making silencers and molesting children, then they can go in and burn them out, killing them all. Sound familiar?

    But in all fairness.....F $#! the Westboro Baptists

    In the article, "witnesses also described Howell as having pointed his gun at his boyfriend in an earlier incident."
    So, the media probably won't pick this up because the suspect is gay. This whole story is weird.

    The whole situation with this dude is queer. Some notes of his possible bisexual tendencies and meeting 'a friend' seems a little off keel. Me thinks he was meeting a lover.

    That was painful to read, poorly written and almost unintelligible supposition. We want details like what brand/type of "assault rifles", Any Magpul furniture, scope with or without illumination, Keymod or M-Lok hand guard, bipod, foregrips, imported BUIS or honest to God American made gold plate irons? And ammo, for Pete's sake what kind of ammo, Tula, Reman, semi-wadcutters, Black Zombie Talon Raptorizers?

    And he drives an Acura, damn furrin cars.:rolleyes:

    I agree. The sheer amount of misinformation (intentional or not) and the super crappy reporting by both the news and the police department itself (twitter statement included) is particularly egregious.

    Makes me not sure what to trust.
