One Man, One Weapons Cache, Massacre Prevented

One Man's Gun Rights Violated (Top brown weapon is AK-47)


CONCORD — A man who was stopped for speeding on the Maine Turnpike had numerous weapons in his car and told authorities he had attended "The Dark Knight Rises" movie with a loaded gun in his backpack, Maine state police said Monday. Timothy Courtois of Biddeford, Maine, was arrested after other drivers reported seeing a Mustang speeding with its lights flashing around 10 a.m. Sunday. A state trooper clocked the car traveling at 112 mph.

Courtois told authorities he was on his way to Derry to shoot a former employer. He also said he had attended the Batman movie at the Cinemagic Theater in Saco the previous night. A search of his car turned up an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns, ammunition and clippings about the mass shooting in Colorado that left 12 people dead at a Friday midnight screening of the same movie, authorities said.

Later Sunday, police searched Courtois' home and found a machine gun, several other guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

Funny in a pathetic and ironic way, how the politicians tell us to stop talking about this latest massacre now and not make it political. Not make it political? Ha - the whole damn issue is political, right Mr. and Mrs. N. R. Eh??
