A crossbow, assault rifles, knives, tasers, baseball bats, bear spray, a cooler full of Molotov cocktails ingredients and IEDs were among the weapons that President Donald Trump's supporters brought with them to Washington, D.C. ahead of the insurrection.
The Daily Beast reported the slate of weapons brought to the Jan. 6 rally with Trump. After weeks of calling for GOP supporters to "fight" and "not go quietly into the night," all Trump and Republican lawmakers needed to do was tap the first domino.
The Associated Press characterized the insurrectionists as "seething ranks of right-wing extremists" captured by rhetoric from the former president alleging the election was "stolen" from them.
Capitol police also reported that the insurrectionists used their own pepper spray and mace against them during the riot, but that wasn't the biggest concern.
"Firearms were among the most ominous weapons found on alleged rioters, both during and after the Jan. 6 assault," the Daily Beast said. "Lonnie Coffman is the man prosecutors say was popped with a cooler full of the makings of 11 Molotov cocktails. The devices, tucked into mason jars, mixed gasoline with styrofoam. The mixture, a common home recipe in extremist texts like the Anarchist Cookbook, makes an improvised incendiary substance similar to napalm that can stick to skin and surfaces while burning for extended periods of time."
He was just one of many cited for bringing weapons ahead of the attack.
