Teahadist Leader Arrested on Gun Charge
The founder of the Tea Party "Patriots" was arrested yesterday morning for attempting to board a flight at LaGuardia carrying a concealed handgun and ammunition. Mark "Teahadist Terrorist" Meckler was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon, and released on his own recognizance. The charge carries a potential 15 year sentence (please, please throw the book at him).
When these clowns carried guns to political rallies and implied that their Second Amendment rights allowed them to assassinate public officials, it was a clear red flag that this far-right element (along with their militia and secessionist allies) was a threat to our democracy. That they casually assume the right to carry a concealed handgun on an airplane simply reinforces how delusional they've become.
