'Stop the Steal' Imagine.... Wanting to believe trumps lies (without any proof the election was illegal) so strongly you'd vandalize America's capital. Get the hell out of here, with what just happened on January, 6th at the Capitol, there is no excuse for absentmindness and no room for giving the benefit of the doubt, it's better to be safe than sorry right now.

Whoops, I accidentally loaded up with ammunition this morning. FFS. Paleeez! Tried that approach during my first divorce. Got me nowhere. His story might be believable, barely, if it was just his firearm...but 500 rounds & an unauthorized pass? It is call thick headed. They don't get it. And of coarse they believed him.

Bull💩. was the fake pass written in a Sharpie? Scary ..!! The hate against Democrats is real A gun & 500 rounds of ammo? How is that an 'honest mistake'? As one does! WHAT DOES THE PHOTO HAVE TO DO WITH THE STORY? I honestly don’t believe him. Turns out he was legal and suppose to be there. Will you report the actual facts then propaganda please. Please mention he was an actual security guard who worked in that area and was called In to work. He was a civilian contractor hired by the govt. this is why you are called FAKE NEWS

Then the authorities should honestly follow the law and put him in an honest to goodness jail. Lol MSNBC trying to sweep this under the rug fast....still trying to stoke fears and clicks. Let me guess: He is MENTALLY ILL. Oh it was a mistake alright. You got caught. Honest? Only honest thing in there is your own stupidity.

thanks for this news Yes, sounds like just an honest mistake Lemme guess. He was a white dude. Freedom seeds guys come on! In an interview, he didn't condemn what happen at the Capital. News abt how tight the bsecurity is dominates the channels so it's impossible how he didn't know. He was definitely doing recon

Not buying it 🤣 Do you know how much 500 9mm bullets weight is, BS An 'honest' mistake carrying a gun and 500 rounds of ammo near the Capital these days? Ok!👌🏿 CRIMINAL REPUBLICON PARTY NEEDS TO BE LISTED AS A TERRORIST GROUP. DEFEAT CON REPUBLICONS EVERYWHERE, FOREVER Yea right This man is from the south. He knows how the people of his area think. Take a minute to listen.

So he honestly, mistakenly obtained and packed an unauthorized inauguration pass, a gun and 500 rounds of ammunition. I hope he is NOT believed and released. Honestly! 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 Sure. His parents should say the same thing about him. A gun a fake pass and 500 rounds is a mistake that’s a fact Honest mistake is equivalence of white privilege....TF No

Yeah, you got caught! 🤪😅😂🤣 I've heard the reasoning behind the gun and that he's private security so that has reason to have ammunition. But how is unauthorized inauguration pass an honest mistake? Sure feels like it was testing security. Nope! 🇺🇸 Really? Only news outlets and members of congress should be allowed at inauguration

The White American Terrorist (WAT) wanted to see if they could get away with it. It was an honest mistake that he did not intend on being caught. Oh it's an honest mistake!? lmao chill Oh sorry officer..I made a wrong turn. I was going to go execute someone in a different part of the city. My bad. For the life of me I can’t fathom any person traveling with a loaded gun, ammunition by the hundreds & a fake inauguration credentials isn’t a threat! WTF did he need that much to secure as his claims were he was going to work 😤😤😤😤😤

He's the spy that got away. Obviously he was going to plant the weapons and then they would be handed out at the event to terrorists who are legitimately going to be there. The man had an unauthorized inauguration pass. That tells you all you need to know. He was testing the waters. You don't 'forget' 500 rounds of ammunition in your truck in W, DC.

Simply making a delivery to Rep. Goehmert who we all know is packing a gun everywhere.
