I didn't see anything illegal listed, but he's a prohibited person.

You guys don’t know what an assault pistol is?

It’s a pistol with blanks, assaults you with bangs but no actual harm ��

Way to manipulate and sensationalize headlines to further a political/social witch hunt.

That article COULD have been titled correctly as "Man Arrested on Weapons Charges." Or, it could have been appropriately titled, "Drugs and Weapons Found, Man Arrested." Or, "Grenade Launcher Found in Man's Home."

But NO, it had to be sensationalized to further the latest flavor-of-the-month crusade, didn't it? It had to get that "white supremacist" thing in there, didn't it? The tired and tattered race card had to be slammed down in the table, didn't it? The article had to include irrelevant information, didn't it? Having "white supremacist and racist materials" (as in books, articles, etc) in your home is not illegal. Why is it even mentioned here? If he had Penthouse magazines in his house, would that also have been thrown in there? What if he had a teddy bear on his bed? Would that irrelevant fact have been offered up as well?

God, the media is disgusting these days. Is there anyplace to go and get unbiased reporting and RELEVANT information in a story without some kind of spin? News has turned into didactic literature and op-eds. It's like the Spanish Inquisition of several hundred years ago--same fanaticism, different God.

Are you even serious?


Please explain why ANY critically thinking adult would believe anything said by CNN without thought or question?

CNN refused to report on a recent serial killer who had murdered 19 elderly women.

Don't be surprised. Every White person arrested is going to be a White Supremacist. Every minority arrested will be a victim.

Seems almost every day another one is caught. And Tucker Carlson said they are a hoax. Fox needs to drop that bozo.
So the guy is being charged with all kinds of counts for the arsenal and drugs.

"..Further, police found meth, about three kilograms of marijuana and about 200 cannabis vape cartridges, the complaint shows. Rubino is charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to a complaint...

But his atty thinks it is important that we know: "..he has known Rubino for a while and he is not a Nazi sympathizer..."

Other than that, he's just a peach of a guy. Kind of cracked me up.
