    • Karen, seriously?! You think he’s a member of Antifa after his family members say he’s a Trump supporter? Sure, he’d go to DC to throw molotov cocktails to protest an election that Democrats won. Makes SO much sense. SMH

  1. Wow. Guns weren’t “registered” to him. Author is either ignorant and watches too much TV, or is making stuff up to make it sound “bad”. Very few states have any sort of “registration” for guns. Certainly not Alabama.

    Notice he’s not being charged with “unregistered guns”.

    • Except he wasn’t IN Alabama (and IS being charged with carrying a pistol without a license). It links to the justice dept’s release:
      and one count of carrying a pistol without a license under D.C. law, which carries a maximum prison term of up to 5 years.

      Take your guns to another state (or district), know the law…

      Also, in Alabama he would still be in trouble. A pistol permit is required:

  2. Seems legit – but in Karen’s defense, it WAS his ex-wife, lol
    If my ex had been at a McDonald’s 20 miles away from there, I’d probably “phone a friend”….jk 😄
