Remember the pro-gun fetishist who was organizing an armed march on Washington D.C.? His penis-extension march was ultimately canceled, but he went on to film himself brandishing and loading a weapon in Freedom Plaza recently and, since he was the only one who drank the funny Koolaid, only he was arrested.
U.S. Park Police Lt. Pamela Smith said her agency executed a search warrant at Kokesh’s home in Herndon about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, looking for a weapon. The park police are the federal agency responsible for policing Freedom Plaza, the concrete park a few blocks from the White House where — in a video posted to YouTube on July 4 — Kokesh appears to load a shotgun in violation of D.C. gun laws.
But that’s not all.
Apparently his charges also include the possession of hallucinogenic Shrooms.
Police searched the Northern Virginia home of activist Adam Kokesh Tuesday evening and took him into custody on a charge of being in possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms while also having a gun, authorities said.
The charges he could have been facing for simply carrying a loaded weapon in D.C. may have been minimal. The charges for possessing mushrooms while carrying, however, are probably far greater.
I don’t necessarily agree with harsh sentencing for non-violent offenses, however I believe I could make an exception for a man who filmed himself in a public location loading a shotgun and threatening armed revolution. The combination of his faux bravado, his readily-available arsenal, and hallucinogenic drugs could be lethal to others.
These are all the hallmarks of a responsible gun owner of course.
If you’re really curious, you can watch the video of his ‘roid-rage chest pumping here.
