    “1 down and 534 to go”


    ARLINGTON (CBS) – A blog threatening members of Congress in the wake of the Tucson, Arizona shooting has prompted Arlington police to temporarily suspend the firearms license of an Arlington man.


    It was the headline “1 down and 534 to go” that caught the attention. “One” refers to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in the rampage, while 534 refers to the other members of the U.S. House and Senate.
    Police are investigating the “suitability” of 39-year-old Travis Corcoran to have a firearms license

    “We certainly take this as a credible threat, and credible until we prove otherwise,” said Arlington police Captain Robert Bongiorno.
    In his blog Corcoran writes, “It is absolutely, absolutely unacceptable to shoot indiscriminately. Target only politicians and their staff and leave regular citizens alone.”

    Police visited Corcoran’s home and found a “large amount” of weapons and ammunition. Sources told WBZ-TV that 11 guns were removed.



    This guy should be treated as a threat to politicians and their staff .
    The comments on the blog are interesting .

    I got as far as them discussing his 3rd Amendment rights and gave up. At the second comment. WTF are people smoking?

    But temporarily suspending his license pending investigation is the sane thing to do, IMO. We've all heard of copycats. If they find no indication of a credible threat or that he's a danger to himself or others, then he should get it back. But not until it's fully investigated.

    I'll admit, I had to look it up.

    So, this guy somehow feels the perp is being forced to quarter a soldier? That's just strange... I have to assume he's got his amendments mixed up.

    Maybe he feels like the social burdens being heaped on the people from entitlements is an equivalent .

    That's a bit of a stretch, especially in this context.

    I agree. We need to suspend the 1st and 2nd Amendments immediately. Plus we need to give the President that "Internet Kill Switch" he wanted.

    I mean, if we can save just one person it'll all be worth it.

    You're right. It is the interwebz, after all. What would it be without a good stretch?
