Here is the problem as I see it. If in fact that M4 was his Military Issued weapon then he is in more trouble than just the local prosecutor. There are military rules/laws that don’t allow you to take your weapon off base like he did. It is a TRUE “Assault Weapon”. So he will face some sort of stiff justice just for that fact. Now if the mall was located on Base it would be a different story.
The weapon pictured is obviously not military issued. Looks like a plain Jane ar with a hand guard attachment
Story said it was an ar 15. If our military are going into combat with semi auto rifles we're in a lot of trouble. I for one would be pleased to see some members of the military walking around a mall in battle gear as long as they weren't chasing zombies.
The story verified that this happened at Cross Creek Mall, in Fayetteville, not at the PX. Cross Creek is about 10 minutes from Bragg, via the Yadkin 500 and is almost always packed. The guy should have been discrete and put the weapon and his gear in a duffel bag and been done with it.

And then they wonder why the fall farther and farther behind in the critical areas needed to keep this nation strong on the Global Stage. We no longer teach S.T.E.M. so that our children can make critical decisions later in life.
We spend more dollars educating our kids to be PC in all things that a failing Eutopia believes it needs to sustain its life. [It dies anyway]

Back in the 1930′s the Nazis were shocked at how far behind they were compared to the laws passed in the midwest taking special needs individuals off the streets and incarcerating them in asylums. Margaret Sanger toured Europe giving lectures as to what US Progressives/Eugenicists were doing.

Somebody with some good file hacking skills should be able to find some identifying information within the video file. That looked like it came from a cell phone and since nearly 99% of them have GPS chips that encoded location information the police or some gov’t spook could figure it out.
Also looking at the background buildings and the covered walkway say it is either a local school or park.

Remember that there has to be a Babylon in the End Times. You are now seeing its unveiling. He wants to take our 2nd Amendment right to self defense and the right to do as he asked to defend the defenseless.
He forgets that one of Jesus’ Disciple had a knife/sword for self defense he used to injure one of the guards that arrested Jesus in the Garden of Gesthemene. Who made the sword, could it have been the Disciple himself?
1trueone - Babylon already exists it is Catholicism & the harlots Are the slips/planted/churches from Catholicism, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mithraic_mysteries it was the ancient religion of Persia, Roman Empire & it is the religion of Catholicism today, video produced by Professor Walter Veith, https://youtu.be/l-VrL3ZBb48.
Please read the new Christian book "The MidEast Beast"
susie40 - Thank you I will look that up, here is a link to the book "Rulers of Evil", http://www.granddesignexposed.com/pdf/RulersofEvil.pdf, author Tupper Saussy, please read this.
Didn't Jesus himself say something along the lines, "I bring not peace but the sword.

Did anyone read the article about Karl Rove’s comments on Fox News this Sunday? He’s Pro 2nd Amendment also but you would not think it from those words. But what was said here and yesterday are true, that when you have harder access it will reduce the rate of violence but will not eliminate it.
Yep, Karl Rove has been exposed as an enemy of the Constitution.
Reduce the rate of *gun* violence, but at what cost?
Is it worthwhile IF violent crime with bladed & blunt weapons increase?
Is it worthwhile IF home invasions & theft of personal property increase?
And when the psychos resort to homemade bombs to blow up elementary schools....what will be the American people's appetite for that level of violence?
There is a fundamental concept regarding decision quality that is missed on a lot of folks...
Treating a symptom...1) leaves the root cause untreated, where it will continue to cause the same issues 2) creates unintentional problems...where there was 1 one issue, now there are 2
Crime committed with guns are a symptom of a deeper problem.
If you fix racism, Roof doesn't shoot up a church & kill 9 people. No one loses their LEGAL rights to LEGALLY operate a firearm.
If you create additional laws to make guns near impossible to LEGALLY own, there is STILL a chance Roof gets his hands on a gun to shoot up the church (He's still racist), or he builds a homemade bomb and blows the church & people inside of it up....or at the very least takes a few people out with a blade or shiv....while at the same time prohibiting law abiding citizens from obtaining fire arms that would be used for hunting & protection of one's self, family & property, and other non criminal uses.
See how that works?
Karl Rove is as stupid as they come. Statistics have proven that tighter gun control leads to higher crime rates and higher deaths. It's just a solid fact. But then, Rove and the rest of the left will never understand facts. They aren't that smart.
England has no access, but they have 4 times the violent crime rate as the US
90% of gun crimes are committed by gangsters. They will always have access to guns. The vast majority of the 300 million legally owned guns are never used in a crime
HE SAID GUN VIOLENCE WOULD BE STOPPED IF 2ND AMENDMENT WAS APPEALED...BUT, APPEALING THE 2ND AMENDMENT WOULD NOT STOP SHOOTINGS, AND IT WOULD NOT MEAN ALL GUNS COULD BE TAKEN AWAY!!! LAWS DON'T MEAN ANYTHING TO CRIMINALS!!!

He’s voicing his first Amendment right of contrary opinion. Maybe instead of lynching the man you would take a little time to understand his side then maybe we could have an intelligent debate on the issue.
The 2nd Amendment is clear that it was dealing with Military “Firearms” of the day ie Black Powder single shot long rifles and pistols. It was also a compromise between those states that wanted Militias, a Federal “Standing” Army and those that wanted none. Since we had just been a decade removed from conflict with our British brothers they wanted to be sure that should the King want re-assert his Tyranny upon the new country that they wanted a way to defend themselves. Those that saw the abuses of the Monarchy housing troops in homes and all the other insults of the day feared any form of a “Standing” Federalized Militia or Army. Then there were those that feared the length of time it would take to assemble the differing State Militias into a fighting force embraced the idea.
So they compromised with what we currently know as the 2nd Amendment, it stood inviolate until Prohibition. When politicians fearful of the Gang death toll of the Thompson machine gun decided to “Regulate” firearms to reduce violence in the 1934 National Firearms Act. It was with the help of NRA attorneys from New York that it passed.
@ 1TrueOne55, GOOOOOOODDDDDDD. GRRRRREEEEIIIIIIIFFFFFFFFFF!
He’s voicing his first Amendment right of contrary opinion. [SO ARE WE] Maybe instead of lynching the man [HAS HE BEEN LYNCHED???!!!!!!] you would take a little time to understand his side then maybe we could have an intelligent debate on the issue. [INTELLIGENT DEBATE TAKING PLACE UNTIL I READ YOUR FIRST PARAGRAPH]
Please tell us where in the debates the arms referenced in the 2nd Amendment were remotely restricted to those of a military nature. Your post also overlooked that many of our militia took their place in the line armed with shotguns.
You would do well to read the Federalist Papers before you post again on this issue. It would save your further embarrassment.
Look feel-good Lib, are you trying to talk Americans out of their UNALIENABLE Rights?!! Sounds like another emotional, liberal Progressive trying to make us all feel better.
We happen to like our (Bill of) RIGHTS!!!
You think you shouldn't carry a firearm, then don't. In America we have Rights and Freedoms. You want to have the Right to carry a pocket knife when the guy that wants to rape your wife has a firearm and will kill you for interfering? Go ahead!
Wait. What? Where, in the text of the Second Amendment, or even in the Constitution, does it say anything about single shot long rifles and pistols? It simply says we have the right to arm ourselves…. and it was put into place to allow American citizens the freedom to fight against those who would oppress us.... you know, like to keep the government from getting too big…. too bad the drooling idiot class won’t wake up to that fact until it’s way too late…. sigh….
Under the 1st Amendment, you have the right to state all of the dumb, foolish and incorrect opinions that you want. Under the 2nd Amendment... you can't infringe upon my natural rights regardless of your foolish opinion expressed during your exercising of your 1st Amendment rights.
No, the 2nd Amendment was NOT dealing with Military Firearms. That is a total leftist fascist lie. It was dealing with personal firearms and Colonial's right to keep them under British tyranny. England confiscated the arms of the colonials so they could not fight back. The 2nd Amendment was placed into the Constitution so that what happened to the Colonists would never happen again. A tyrannical government must never be allowed to dictate to the American people again. That is what the left is all about, dictatorship, tyranny and disarming America.
So you are all saying that his opinion means nothing if it doesn't fit your preconceived notion of opinion. Amazingly stupid comment.
National firearms act is and was an infringement, thus should be void. It was an illegal act of congress in response to congress overstepping their authority when they amended to constitution to ban alcohol. Wen they repealed that disaster, the firearms control act should have also been repealed
1TrueOne55 ---- If ever there was a time that the population should be armed to protect itself from a punitive, intrusive and abusive govt, it is now. I think that the populace should at least have the firepower that the government armed the drug cartels with, eh?
By the way, I didn't read one post that said this guy should be "lynched." Further, it seems that most did read his opinion and considered it. ----- Then they discarded it as crap.
Here's a tip for ya: Words mean things.

We already have the victory, it happened on the Cross of Calvary. Evil just does not want to deal with it correctly.

Here is one question? Did Roof’s actions have the intended affect of the “terrorist” act? And that maybe what the FBI Director was looking at.
 June 20, 2015 at 1:29am
They would not be “Slaves” had they come here through the legal system of immigration. You can get a green card to work in this country. We might have to adjust the numbers we allow green cards to but we don’t need to rebuild the current system as Obama wants to do.
And if you read the 14th Amendment unless one of the parents of children are either citizens of our country or the county they reside in has authority as a citizen over them then the child born is a citizen of the country of origin of the parents. But Progressives have never interpreted it that way for political power/reasons.
 June 19, 2015 at 10:45pm
Most people afraid of guns think like that.
 June 18, 2015 at 10:24pm
Even parents who are living with their children don’t know what happens unless the children tell them what is happening. Parents can even ask and unless the child tells you the truth they could not know, it’s worse for absent divorced fathers.
I know of that feeling I had a young daughter that I was raising after he mother failed to protect her and she would never be truthful, always telling me it was none of my business if I tried to dig deep into her actions.
So let’s wait before we crucify the father for not being there and buying his son a handgun for his 21st Birthday. It could be that 21 is the age at which a person can legally own a handgun, because some states limit the age at which you can legally own a handgun.

This is what will happen if we elect another progressive gun grabber. We won’t even have enough reserve supply for our military to fend off an invasion of North Korean Army brats. It’s the main reason for the 2nd Amendment so that citizens when called to war by the Federal Gov’t would have their own weapons to fight back the invading Army.
Did you read the article because what I read is tha Colt suffers from horrible management.
What are you talking about? Gun sales have increased for 12 straight years, and the last 6 have been the highest in history.
As the NRA noted “…in 2014, the number of firearm-acquisition NICS checks was 45 percent greater than the average number for all preceding years, including 2012 and 2013, during which Americans bought guns at an extraordinarily high rate in response to President Obama’s re-election and subsequent campaign for gun control.”
2015 is shaping up to be another record year.
If you can’t make money making and selling firearms during this boom cycle it means you don’t know what you are doing.
Progressives have been the industry’s best friend.
It has been said that Japanese Admiral Yamamoto said that any invasion of American soil by a foreign power would be met with a gun behind every tree.He is reported to have added that any invasion of the USA would be suicide for the power that tried.
Well that was before "O". His desire is to confiscate ALL private weapons just as Hitler did in Germany. He would like nothing more than to see America invaded and subjugated by any number of foreign powers.
There is a cute t-shirt being marketed which says" If you believe in gun confiscation, raise your right arm" the shirt has a picture of Hitler giving his salute.
North Korea will not invade the US here. They have no capacity, or plans, to do so.
Did you bother to read the article? You should, it has a lot of interesting facts that don't support one thing you posted.
 June 15, 2015 at 12:43am
NO, you’re not. I’ve been warning since March 2012 that when Obama signed a re-write of Truman’s Martial Law Executive Order changing its reason for invocation and what it will be able to control. It shows how deeply it goes to allow Green Tyranny to flourish.
June 14, 2015 at 4:59pm
Why don’t people look up the Constitutional requirements to hold the office of President. The Constitution allows for being born on foreign soil by the right of the parent if they were born inside the USA. Go look it up.

After the ACLU gets done with this case Gavin will no longer have any privacy at his current school nor any other when Gavin tries to go to school. It will be the behind the back rumors that will spread and make him an outcast even among the gender Gavin wants to be not the one Gavin was born to be.

In God We Trust was added in the 1950′s during the Eisenhower presidency to citizens to turn to God. And the original pledge was created by a Communist school teacher to indoctrinate children into patriotism for the USA. He had hoped that in doing so that when the country turned to Communism it would do so without any blood shed since our children would say the pledge on a daily basis.
But now with the addition of “One Nation Under God” even the progressives have lost sight of the Pledge’s original intent and they remove it from daily school participation blindly thinking it is an article of faith, when it was not.
