On Friday, police showed up to a young man’s workplace and tried to arrest him over social media posts reported to them by an old army buddy of the 28-year-old Afghanistan veteran. Alex then barricaded himself inside his own attic, unarmed. Law enforcement officers followed him, blocked off the road to all traffic and a seven-hour standoff began.

When it was over, the Putnam County Sheriffs, SWAT team and local police, armed with their own automatic rifles with 30 round magazines, arrested Alex for possessing a “high capacity magazine” for his legal AR-15.

sorry dougie, but he said/he said social media BS perpetrated this incident plus this 'popular' attention seeking individual perpetuated this fascinating fiasco by not keeping his mouth shut to the world on his personal life and "stuff" he owns.

[by the way dougie...notice nobody out on this forum discusses number of firearms or amount of ammo or their legal/non-legal mags that are in their possession]

I think some on this forum have said they may have owned a particular firearm at one time in their life. But my understanding is most on here lost whatever firearms they may have owned in a boating accident.
