Cops: Maine man brought loaded gun into 'Batman' flick


www.bostonherald.com

A Maine man pulled over for speeding early yesterday morning told cops he brought a loaded gun into a showing of the new “Batman” flick and had a car full of weapons and press clippings from the Colorado movie massacre, authorities report.

Maine State Police say after they arrested Timothy Courtois, 49, around 10 a.m. yesterday morning, they found even more firearms at his Biddeford home, including a machine gun, and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

So it begins.

Groups of copy/cats and others will be coming out of the woodwork in order to get their views and beliefs accross.


Inside his car, which police clocked at 112 mph, troopers found an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns and several boxes of ammunition, police said.


Is it safe to say all of this will be used to remove your 2nd amendment? Or to restrict your rights to carry arms in the United States?

What are the rammifications of a high profile case such as this and the Colorado shooting of last week? More fuel for the gun control crowd?

Thoughts ATS?

I couldn't see why the man needed an ak-47 to see a movie, plus 4 other hand guns. But to be fair, maybe he wanted to see the movie and was worried about a copy cat attack. Plus some people are armed to the teeth at all times.

I can see it all unfolding now, owning a gun is a premeditated thought crime in the US.

something sounds odd about it ... bit too convenient suddenly arresting a copycat of the colorado incident ..
rather suspect its part of someones agenda ... has the smell of set up to it ...

I wouldn't be worried about the integrity of gun laws in the US, but more so of some privatized or federal security organization dishing out wandings, metal detectors and pat-downs in major theaters.

I read this and say "so what". I have a loaded weapon on me right now, with the safety off. If I choose to go to a movie, so be it. I wouldn't be the first, and I won't be the last.
This article is an attempt to make everyone with a legal weapon into a nutcase.

Yeah I worry about that too. Because in the end that would not do any good. Instead it would be the final nail in the coffin destroying the economy for good.

Who wants to get groped by the TSA just to go to a mall or a movie. If that was the case I would order my things online and use netflix of just rent movies from blockbuster.

Isn't it obvious? This new (false flag) "trend" will eventually be used as an excuse to implement TSA-style security checkpoints in movie theaters and other public venues. It was clear to me from day one.

What's the big deal, other than some cops trying to get some publicity? I carried a loaded gun into the theater last Saturday to see the Batman movie, I also carried it into the grocery store, the dry cleaners, Sears, Red Lobster, Walmart and several other places. It is called Concealed Carry, I have a permit. It's legal, and by some miracle, nobody got shot.

It's not a big deal that he was on his way there with an assault rifle, ammunition and other weapons?

Yeah, Concealed Carry is one thing, I'm all for it, but carrying an AK47 is a bit much IMO.

I live a very rural lifestyle, which involves a good many guns. I have a CCW permit and carry at all times on and off the property except in places that will get you hemmed up for disregarding their notice, i.e. government buildings and schools. Note, I typically disregard the convoluted "no firearms" signs that local businesses put out.

Mostly because they don't post them IAW the rules which means while they can ask me to leave there is nothing else they can do - unless posted correctly in the right place in the right size they are worthless. However, that said I mostly ignore them regardless - it’s a concealed carry permit, meaning no one but me will know it's there if done correctly.

Anyway, on to the movies...

One of the few pleasures we have out here is a movie once in a while. It's a 60 minute drive to the nearest theater on roads populated by many deer. A few months ago while driving home at about 0100 or so after a late movie I hit one. It was not dead so I dispatched it with my 1911 so it would not suffer. The response time for anything out here is sometimes 45 minutes even in a red light emergency. They don't respond to deer strikes unless there are people injured.

Anyway, the point being I carry my firearm with me into the movies of course. I don't want to leave my 2500.00 pistol in the glove box so that the “feel good” police can have a no guns policy at the theater.

So, should my local theater decide to put up a sign (which considering the local climate is not likely) - I will likely ignore it without regard to its size and placement. If they go so far as to install metal detectors I will stick to red box.

If the county Sherriff (after proper checks and vetting) says I can concealed carry it’s stupid for the theater owner (with likely zero reason other than “feel good”) to limit my right.

Just another "nut", who was caught though.

Yes, this might be the way, TPTB try to instil tougher laws, against its citizens.

I am actually sickened by this. He was going to "kill" his former employer. Sad.

Right.

This is all too convenient. People magically getting one man army firearm loads right when a big movie is going to be release to the public.

Someone wanted this to be seen.

That's the Part, everyone isn't seeing. He was going to "shoot' his former employer. Shoot, means "kill" in my book. Especially the amount of weapons he was bringing. He's insane.

Yeah this is a stinkin covert Op. They killed real people to scare people into voting for disarming themselves.
This should tell you what black op mercenary psychopaths are about. I thought they only did this stuff in south america,north and central africa and the middle east.

Welcome to the United States Soviet Prison guys.

My goodness, that was a lot of fire power! I only say that after seeing the photo assigned to the news article. Was he about to invade Poland? Why did he have an assault weapon, and multiple handguns in his vehicle? I don't think he was going duck hunting with that kind of firepower? Now, it could be postulated that perhaps he got through with popping off rounds at the range, or he was on his way to the range after the movie?

On the other hand, he may just have been up to no good, and the cops just might have prevented a murder or another spree killing. Word to wise, if anyone is planning on going to the range to pop some rounds, and they decide to bring their whole collection? Keep all receipts from the shooting range, because you may need them if you get pulled over. I have a feeling the cops around the country are going to be quite skittish about people and their fire arms. Ensure all documentation is in order to go along with every firearm in your possession whether it be on your person or at home. I only say that, because the MSM is doing a heck of a job instilling a climate of fear after the incident in Aurora, Colorado. Be careful out there, and prepare for another round of criminalization of law abiding citizens and obstructing their rights to possess firearms. I am glad they got this guy off the streets.

You would think that would be the MAIN story... he was on his way to Kill his former employer... not the Batman angle..

media never fails to capitalize on a headline..


I am just happy that this guy was so stupid to have gotten caught before he could have taken lives.. I think the bail amount ( $50,000 ) is ridiculous.. he shouldn't have a bond until he goes through some mental health facility.. :shk:

There are some bigger questions here.

1)Why did he want to be caught?
2)Why in a popular movie franchise release? Why this movie?
3)Why all the inconsistancies? Multiple ditched arms paraphenalia, the flip flips, timeline inconsistancies, conflicting accounts,etc.
4)Who stands to profit from this?
5)Why did he rather plainly tell people what he was doing?
6)Why "this" person and why now? He does from sane,highly educated doctorate student working at a darpa subsidiary to a serial killer with mobile ammo firearm stockpile? How does he get all this and no one notices?
7)Joker has green hair and but he has red hair. Same psychotic zombie grin Jared Loehner had.
