The Secret Service arrested a 41-year-old Iowa man one block from the White House today after a search of his car uncovered a rifle and ammunition, law enforcement officials confirmed to ABC News.
The man approached a uniform division officer on the corner of 15th Street and E Street NW at 12:54 p.m. and “stated that someone in Iowa told him to go to the White House,”

This right here.
Sounds to me like the guy had a rifle in his car but wasn't doing anything else.
That is if he even approached anyone at all. For all we know, he was just minding his own business. I carry a rifle with me when I travel within my state.
That automatically means he was going to use it on someone in the White House.

Militia? Sounds like a useful idiot sort of thing. Lee Harvey and James Ray sort of dumbasses.
We need to give the militia a break here. A hunting rifle? If it were some militia operation they would have found a team 2 to 4 men with assault rifles and other tactical paraphernalia ect.
Hunting rifle sounds like James Earl Ray lone gun set up heat sink stoolie.
