Remarks against Antifa prompt FBI seizure of former Marine’s weapons under Oregon’s ‘red flag’ law:

A former Marine who said at a protest that he would “slaughter” Antifa members in self-defense, if attacked, recently had his five weapons confiscated by the FBI, according to reports The temporary seizure came through the use of Oregon’s “red flag” law, which allows law enforcement agencies and family members to seek a court order to have weapons taken away from an individual viewed as potentially violent Such laws are often opposed by supporters of Second Amendment gun rights. The former Marine, Shane Kohfield, 32, was not charged with any crime, but surrendered five guns, including an AR-15 rifle, according to Phil Lemman, Oregon’s acting deputy state court administrator, the Washington Examiner reported  ‘I AM ANTIFA’ PROFESSOR WHO POSTED DESIRE TO HIT TRUMP WITH BAT RESIGNS FROM POST The action was reportedly prompted by remarks Kohfield made in public during a demonstration outside the home of Portland, Ore , Mayor Ted Wheeler in August, the Oregonian/OregonLive reported. “If Antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next,” Kohfield told a crowd, according to the Oregonian “I’d slaughter them, and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out Antifa.” Kohfield previously wrote to U S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, a former Navy SEAL, to share his concern about Antifa and voice his support for having the group declared a terrorist organization, a step that President Trump has considered  Portland has been the site of frequent violent clashes between members of far-left Antifa and supporters of conservative groups such as Proud Boys The mayor and other city officials have faced criticism for their handling of such events  Based on the court order, Kohfield – who served two tours of duty in Iraq — was committed to a veterans hospital for 20 days and was barred from participating in subsequent protests in Portland  According to the Oregonian, Kohfield conceded that he probably appeared threatening to other people, but he never intended to cause harm  “I looked unhinged,” he told the newspaper. “I looked dangerous and have the training to be dangerous ” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP The FBI would not comment about the case, the Oregonian reported It was unclear when Kohfield’s weapons would be returned to him. The Oregon Legislature narrowly passed the state’s red-flag law in 2017, with no Republican support in the House and backing from only one Republican in the Senate Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, signed the bill into law on Aug. 15 of that year and the law took effect Jan 1, 2018.

  1. So the Subjects of Oregon don't have the right to free speech or self defense? Unless they are a part of the Anti Socialist Socialist movement? Antifa can and has said much worse and more threatening than this Former Marine ever said. They have also carried out the actions of Terrorism on Citizens of our Nation.

  2. We know Trump is a coward but will sit and watch your children be killed one after the next. If mental illness is the issue- why do government buildings, school, airports have metal detectors and not crazy detectors Nearly two-thirds of gun deaths are suicides. The U.S. gun suicide rate is 10 times that of other high-income countries. Access to a gun increases the risk of death by suicide by three times.  Gun suicides are concentrated in states with high rates of gun ownership. Most people who attempt suicide do not die—unless they use a gun. Across all suicide attempts not involving a firearm, less than five percent will result in death.  But for gun suicides, those statistics are flipped: approximately 85 percent of gun suicide attempts end in death. White men represent 74 percent of firearm suicide victims in America.

  3. Anitfa beats up random people, attacks Tucker Carlson house and assault people at rallys…..? However the ex-marine should not have said what he did, it's not surprising law enforcement step in. Where is all that law enforcement when antifa is committing crimes though?

  4. so free speech and self defense are no longer a thing in oregon, in america? or is it just enforced for conservative white men?
