Weapons, assault charges for suspect in conservative council shooting

Washington (CNN) - The suspect in the shooting at the Family Research Council walked into the headquarters of the conservative group armed with a 9 mm pistol and shot a security guard after telling him, "I don't like your politics," authorities said in a criminal complaint filed Thursday.

The complaint accuses Floyd Lee Corkins II, 28, of a federal firearms violation and assault with intent to kill.

    Good think that Washington DC has that handgun ban in place.

    Why isn't this being prosecuted as a hate crime?

    This violent looney leftist needs to be locked up for a VERY long time.

    Is the shooter gay? If shooting a person based on the fact they are gay is a hate crime, then the reverse should also be a hate crime.

    Funny how when handgun bans are in place, it's the criminals who are the ones with the weapons, huh?
