BUSTED: Gunman caught toting assault rifle and bump-stock because it wouldn’t fit in his suitcase

Published

on

A Brooklyn, New York man was arrested after he was caught with an assault rifle and a bump stock hanging out of a small rolling suitcase.

The New York Daily News reported Anthony Morgan was arrested previously with the weapon, but after 911 calls came in Monday, police began looking for him again.

Police said that there was “no mistaking the gun butt” hanging out of his suitcase. When they first confronted the man he fled and when they caught up to him, he tried to pull the rifle out.

Citing court documents, The Daily News said that Morgan stopped and turned toward officers exiting their police cruiser. He tried to pull the weapon out but it got stuck. So, he threw the whole suitcase at the officers and ran.

Earlier this month, Morgan was caught with the weapon and 70 rounds of ammunition.

“This gun was actually out (in) public in #NYC — until these #Brooklyn officers seized it, along with more than 70 rounds of ammunition,” New York Police Department Chief Rodney Harrison tweeted. “Outstanding work helping to keep the people of #BedStuy safe.”

These last two offenses add to 20 prior arrests over the years, primarily for weapons possession, according to police. He was previously arrested in October in the same neighborhood but for assault.

Police said Monday they recovered a loaded Sharps 5.56-caliber AR-15 semiautomatic rifle outfitted with a bump stock attachment from the suitcase. The gun is the same the Las Vegas gunman used in 2017.

Bump stocks are officially illegal as of Tuesday.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
