Michael Strickland, the right-wing agitator and Trump supporter seen in this video brandishing a gun at a peaceful Black Lives Matter rally, has been charged with two class A felonies after being arrested and initially released Friday morning on his own recognizance without bail.

At his arraignment today at the Multnomah County Courthouse in downtown Portland Strickland was hit with two felony counts of “unlawful use of a weapon,” as well as misdemeanor charges of menacing and disorderly conduct.

The hearing took place on the same block where Strickland pulled a Glock 27, swept the gun at the crowd while yelling “Get the hell back!” He subsequently outfitted the gun with a large capacity magazine.

At the scene, Strickland said he was only armed in self-defense. But the Multnomah County District Attorney revealed in court that Strickland had six magazines of ammunition on him.

Good riddance, hopefully this stops other thugs from bringing their firearms and pointing them at innocent civilians. I'm surprised he was released without bail, unstable mental nut job that will surely end up hurting someone soon.

Idiots with guns.
I see it everyday on Facebook.

I follow a couple of Pro Gun pages and they expose idiots like this everyday who are irresponsible with their firearms.


That's one less nutjob around.

The title of the story says that he came armed for a massacre.

The same can be said of a hunter going out for feral hogs.

How many times did he fire his gun?

He was arrested for what appears to be a crime, which I support. i hope that he is sentenced appropriately.

If he truly feared for his safety he would have not stayed around after the fact.

They are assuming he came for a massacre because he had 6 magazines of ammunition with him, all 6 magazines were extended illegal high capacity magazines.

Agreed, he was an agitator looking for a reason to shoot someone. We've been seeing alot of these nuts lately, some even wear a uniform.

He sucks at massacres, since he did not fire his gun.

Irrelevant. This is not how a responsible firearm owner should conduct themselves.

Like I have said many times before, it is the gun nuts in this country that will end-up having more of our 2nd amendment further eroded, not the anti-gun people.

Oregon has no magazine capacity laws.

Last updated August 27, 2015. Oregon has no law regulating large capacity ammunition magazines.


kptv.com


Commissioners said state law limits counties for legislating in others areas of gun control, such as banning assault rifle or limiting magazine sizes.

So how were his magazines illegal?

I never said that he is not a nut.
It is not irrelevant.
The title says he came for a massacre. What stopped him? If he came for a massacre, he forgot to do an important thing... shoot.

Oh, he was a trump supporter, that must mean all trump supporters are potential loose cannons. I best ask right away the next stranger I meet who they support so I can stay clear of them. /sarcasm

In reality, I do not care about any of the people who are running for president. However, I am getting tired of all these click-baity articles the MSM keeps putting out. Who cares who he supported.

Because the ban on high capacity magazines is a federal law?

No one is saying all trump supporters are potential loose cannons. You can't be mad at the news for reporting the facts.

"Peaceful" BLM rally. Must have been the only peaceful one that ever happened.

A hell of a lot more peaceful than when a team looses a hockey or baseball game.

The ban on Hi cap's sunsetted in 2004 I believe.

I stand corrected, you are correct that ban is over, it's only on a state by state basis. Apologies folks! And thanks for that information
