    First Joker copycat arrest

    Not quite a copycat, but obviously inspired by this loser. Left Batman movie, stopped for driving 112mph enroute to NH. Arrested w/AK, handguns, and clippings of Aurora, and said he was on his way to kill his boss.

    Bath salts in the South, cartoon wanabes in the North. I may be upsizing my EDC loadout.

    It almost sounds like too much of a slam dunk for the cops. If you're really wanting to kill someone, why risk getting pulled over on the way there by so obviously breaking the law? Why tell the cops your plans? Guy's either an idiot or he got set up. I could believe either.

    I know it's judging a book by his cover, but looking at his booking photo, I'm guessing the former.

    An idiot can cause a lot of trouble.

    How do you get "set up" to do 112 mph?

    "A machine gun". How much do any of you want to bet it was just a full size Glock?

    Another article with pics of arrestee and his stash: "Batman link" in arrest of Maine man with guns? - Crimesider - CBS News

    If the "machine gun" thing is true, I think he may lose his stamp.

    We kid, but I wont say it did not play a role in my decision to trade out my Kahr K9 EDC for an FNX-9 (18 rounds > 8 rounds) I hate printing and like to be 100% stealth all the time, but now i'm willing to trade higher capacity for a little less stealth. Just too many random shooting nowadays.

    If he has a legal machinegun he can kiss it good-bye,not to mention the rest of his stash

    Well, you see people pulled over for speeding or a tail light out and the police find 100 pounds of drugs in the trunk. Really? 3 million dollars in drugs in the trunk and they get busted due to a 3 dollar tail light? See, that stuff will make you stupid.

    Got set up? LOL no. Either he's an idiot, mentally deficient, or wanted to get caught, for attention

    Why is it that copy cats even show up or how do they get the notion to begin with? Sick people. Why I carry everywhere and anywhere I go.
