Police arrested a Long Island, New York man with thousands of rounds of ammunition, and assault rifle, a pistol, body armor and fake federal IDs, after pulling him over for a traffic stop.
Not to worry, though. Police don’t see any indication of an “immediate threat.” Here’s what they found in his car.
He had a fake federal air marshal ID in one pocket, a Ruger .380-caliber pistol in the other and was driving around Long Island with ballistic body armor and a loaded AR-15 assault rifle. He also had an arsenal of weapons at his gated home.
Not to worry, though. According to police, a man armed with a loaded AR-15 wasn’t any immediate threat.
“At this time we don’t see any immediate threat to the public,” Nassau County Police Department spokesman Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun told reporters.
Seven illegal firearms, three high-capacity magazines and 8,300 rounds of ammunition were found in the 49-year-old’s SUV and Syosset home after an exhaustive search, police confirmed.
Here’s the part that just chaps my hide, because it highlights how utterly stupid law enforcement is about terrorism. And racist. And anti-Muslim. The guy’s name is Mark Vicars. A Nice American name. So here’s what police said:
“We don’t see any nexus to any terrorism at this time,” LeBrun said, adding that no anti-American literature or links to terrorism were found at his home.
What is anti-American literature, exactly? Is it always relating to Islam, or could one see anti-American literature calling for the “cleansing” of dirty hippies from the face of the earth, a la Ted Nugent?
This country’s law enforcement community is just as absurd as our political system.
