Skip to comments.Several guns seized from Redmond man after 'concerning Twitter posts' for 'Joker' movie
Posted on 10/09/2019 3:46:26 AM PDT by LouieFisk
Investigators became aware of the posts last week, including one dated Sept. 26 showing the man holding two AK-47 guns -- one in each hand, pointing skyward, fingers on triggers. The caption on the photo read: "One ticket for joker please," according to Redmond police.
The post comes as U.S. officials had issued warnings about the potential for mass shootings at the movie, which opened on Thursday to increased security around the Seattle-area movie theaters. FBI intelligence officials had uncovered social media posts related to extremists classified as 'incels' -- short for "involuntary celibate" -- and the man had been claiming to be one of them.
Investigators learned that the man had previous disturbing and threatening social media posts toward women in 2017, according to Redmond police's petition for being granted an Extreme Protection Order.

He is an idiot. No trigger discipline at all.
You said it all.
Actually, he’s dumber than an idiot. Betcha he’s a rat voter.
Those are probably Airsoft anyway.
People in this country are supposed to be FREE to idiots!
My immediate take on the photo along with what he posted “One ticket for Joker please” as an attempt to be clever or amusing. He seemed to be picking up on the media portrayal of the movie as being an incitement to people inclined to violence.
It may have been an inopportune time to say what he said but nonetheless he ought to be allowed to say it without penalty.
Um... This is almost literally the yelling fire in a movie theater exception to completely free speech.
If hes stupid enough in this environment to think its ok to not just say this but post it publicly Im ok with the JBTs giving him a timeout
Hes practicing dry firing. With two Kalashnikovs. At the ceiling
Once again I must repeat. Stay off of social media.
Not his first rodeo. No guns for this idiot.
You are allowed to yell fire in a theatre. That ruling was overturned by another ruling
You seem to think you and others can read intent into someones vague statement.
Sure the fools words were ill timed but as I said, since when is it acting like an asshole punishable with the loss of our rights?
Your position is akin to allowing the Camels nose under the tent.
Those are probably Airsoft anyway.
Its a poor photo so I cant see details well, but I think youre correct. The underfolder stock is not correct. The shoulder piece is very odd and unlike any I have ever seen. And Ive seen most.
“The shoulder piece is very odd and unlike any I have ever seen.”
From story -
“More recent posts last month show the man with several guns in his home, tucked into his waistband or displayed in wooded areas, police said. In addition, he showed photos of high capacity magazines filled with rifle rounds and indicated he uses gun kits to make “ghost guns” — guns without serial numbers, according to police.”
Maybe some homemade doings?
He’s doing it wrong. The ‘weapon of choice’ for shooters these days is the AR-15. Get with the program!
A 50 caliber AR-15 with a high magazine clip, according to the media.
I’d go with -
No excuse for this.
How is he even able to hold those? That is like what 20 boxes of weight?
There certainly is no excuse for the State’s actions in this case.
From The Blaze - the guy’s a confessed all-around loser:
“He also identified as an “incel,” which is short for involuntarily celibate, a group that had been identified as a possible source for attacks as a result of the “Joker” movie.”
Re: Once again I must repeat. Stay off of social media.
But, it takes all the fun out of being mentally ill.
