Vice: Queens Proud Boy Wannabe Arrested for Allegedly Stockpiling Guns for Another Capitol attack

https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mpjm/queens-proud-boy-wannabe-arrested-for-allegedly-stockpiling-guns-for-another-capitol-attack

"Got a bunch of guys all armed and ready to deploy... we are just waiting for the word,” he allegedly posted on Parler.

Queens man who allegedly had aspirations of joining the far-right group the Proud Boys was charged with a weapons offense Wednesday after his Tuesday arrest by the FBI turned up a stockpile of ammunition and deadly weapons.

Snip

Both before and during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Florea, a software engineer by trade, posted threatening messages under the name “LoneWolfWar” on the far-right-friendly, recently-defunct social media site Parler. He admitted to police that he was the operator of the account and owner of the ammunition.

Florea was charged with being a felon in possession of illegal ammunition, as he had previously been convicted of a firearms-related felony in New York state, according to the complaint. He could face up to a decade in prison if convicted. Assistant U.S. Attorney Francisco J. Navarro said during the bail hearing that Florea “is particularly dangerous in the current political environment” and posed a flight risk, according to the Associated Press.

More at link, including reported threats about Senator Warnock. glad to see these shitbags being rounded up. hopefully, they will not be released back onto the streets!

on edit: just ran across a NY Post article stating this guy's wife was horrified, planning to divorce him, and plans to sue dump. not linking to their crappy site. lol

Removed a less important paragraph in favor of the last one.

1. That's a pretty pathetic 'stockpile' ... and that aspect doesn't sound illegal ...

Now ... making threats against people ... that's another story.

Glad they bagged him, but I doubt he does any serious time, unfortunately.

Edit: oh, there's this part ... "Florea was charged with being a felon in possession of illegal ammunition, as he had previously been convicted of a firearms-related felony in New York state"

Oops.

6. Right ...

I notice that they didn't actually mention finding any guns.

He was probably either too broke, or too chicken ... to get an actual gun.

Just wanted to talk tough and have some ammo he could show to his little friends ...while thinking he wouldn't get in trouble for ammo with no guns.
