Floyd Lee Corkins II, the suspect in Wednesday's shooting at the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the Family Research Council, was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in a bag when he opened fire, according to the criminal complaint filed by the Justice Department on Thursday.
Corkins, 28, of Herndon, Va., was charged with "interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition"a federal offensealong with the "intent to kill while armed." The offenses carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison for transportation of a weapon, and 30 years for intent to kill. Corkins is expected to make an initial court appearance later Thursday.
According to the FBI affidavit, Corkins' parents said their son "has strong opinions with respect to those he believes do not treat homosexuals in a fair manner." According to The Associated Press, Corkins "had been volunteering recently at a community center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people."

I think he planned to murder 15 people, then stuff chik fil a’s in their mouths. Then he could’ve gotten off after filing a grant with the NEA for “Homicidal Art”.
It's for the children, after all.
Murder can never be sanctioned but I do see how the artistic aspect would definitely warranta grant if done “tastefully” at lest as tasty as the sandwiches. A panel of liberal artistes would make the decision in a blind taste test, not only grant him a defense but a grant as well.
You are absolutely right on this one, gummint should ensure that no fast food bag can hold more than a single sandwich............and of course... no bacon!!
I don’t know but this thread is making me hungry for Chik-fil-A sandwiches that’s for sure.
The libtard nutjob intended on leaving those sandwches behind with his victims, similar to death cards used during the Vietnam War. Imagine my shock that the corrupt media conveniently leaves this fact out of the story... or even the story itself.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm....... I really, really didn’t need to see that.
Thanks a lot.
My wife, who is really well informed about current events, knew absolutely nothing about this case when I mentioned it to her yesterday. It has already disappeared from the MFM radar, if it was ever on it.
Almost certainly he brought them with him as an excuse to get past security: “hey I’m here to deliver this food?”.
Also - perhaps in his warped mind he was planning to give out the chicken and kill those who accepted.
"Fair Manner" seems to be defined differently by different groups. It now means to drop all your convictions and accept mine (whatever it is) unconditionally, else you're a hate-monger!
Sorry, I don't accept the definition or the label...
If he had Chick-Fil-A sandwiches that proves that he was a gun-loving Muslim-hating right-wing teabagger extremist homophobe, and he attacked a pro-life group because they weren’t far enough to the right to suit him.
I read this in the New York Times. /s
He will beat the other charges and get life for carrying 15 Chick Fil A sandwich’s.
Its a crime to order 15 Chick- Fil-A sandwiches !!!!!
Could never eat more than 3 at a sitting.....
I usually ask for extra pickles!
It does look good, doesn't it?
Until now, it was just reported as CFA “materials”.
Big Media couldn’t bring themselves to report any further at the time.
FU Big media and your stupid anti-American messiah!
Don’t think you will get your curly fries there. Maybe waffle fries.
Slightly off topic, but I don’t much care for either curly or waffle fries. Plain oldfashioned french fries (fried in lard), piping hot & well salted; how do you improve on that?
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Fourteen rounds in the magazine, one in the chamber. He was going to leave a sandwich with each one of his victims.
indeed, my bad...
I was sorta confused. I've got coffee, now!
I think he planned to murder 15 people, then stuff chik fil as in their mouths.
= = == = = = == = = = = = = = == = = = == = = = =
Since ‘they’ had a version where he supposedly told the (Black) Security Guard “I don’t have any thing against you”
I think his plan was to offer a sandwich and those that came forward he would shoot?
That's a federal law?
Every commie knows it’s legal to kill Christians.
Pray for America
Or maybe the sandwiches were poisoned - and he was going to hand them out. Creepy again...
Corkins is really screwed now. The DC district
attorney may overlook a petty crime such as murder of an employee of a conservative group, but carrying Chick-Fil-A sandwiches within city limits is a serious offense that will not go unpunished.
“The liberal probably thought he would look like he belonged if he was carrying a bag of Chick-fil-A.”
“Or maybe the sandwiches were poisoned - and he was going to hand them out.”
I think the likeliest theory expounded on this thread so far has been the one about him planning to offer sandwiches to people, and then shooting the “homophobes” who accepted them.
I remember hearing that he was going to use the excuse of delivering food to get past the guard.
My guess is he wanted to kill as many people as he could and his way of getting 'in' was the "I'm one of you' bag of Chick-fil-A - as if conservatives walked around with Chicken sandwiches all day. Liberals gin up their base with so much hatred that it's a wonder they don't kill more of us. If the Southern Poverty Law Center had their way we'd all be arrested and put on trains for 're-education' camps.
Liberals ARE the haters.
And the liars...
And the criminals and cheaters....
What happened to the Firearm Owners' Protection Act?
If they have silently deep-sixed that Act, then anyone caught driving across a state line with a firearm can be put under the jail with a felony charge.
This must be stopped. REVOLUTION!
I believe he was planning on using the sandwiches as death cards ie kill folks pose the bodies leave a sandwich as a calling card.
