Police: He had 5 loaded guns, extra ammunition when found outside a Kentucky business – Lexington Herald Leader

A possible mass shooting at a factory was thwarted by two employees and two Springfield police officers responding to a trespassing complaint.

Matthew R. Smith, 37, faces several charges after he was found Monday with multiple guns and made statements to police indicating “he was planning to conduct a mass shooting inside LB Manufacturing,” the department said in a Tuesday Facebook post. Smith also said he had been “analyzing the building layout to include entrances/exits, approaches, and even the air vents on the roof,” according to police.

Police responded to LB Manufacturing over a report of a suspicious vehicle trespassing, according to court records. An employee had tried to confront the driver in the parking lot, but the driver refused to leave, police said Tuesday. That employee told his supervisor to call police.

When Assistant Chief Joe Templeman and Capt. Tony Golden approached Smith in his pickup truck about 4 p.m., Templeman said he asked for Smith’s name and Smith “began making furtive movements in the vehicle and asked” for the officer’s badge number, according to an arrest report filed in court.

Smith, of Willisburg, refused to give his name and did not step out of the vehicle when Templeman asked, according to police. The assistant police chief opened the driver’s door and noticed a Glock handgun in Smith’s hand about the same time Smith began raising it toward Templeman’s chest, according to court records.

Templeman was able to grab the handgun, pass it to Golden and wrestle Smith to the ground, Smith’s arrest citation stated. Smith began to reach for the front of his waistband, where police found another handgun, court records showed.

After Smith was handcuffed, Templeman and Golden found another Glock strapped to Smith’s ankle; a possibly modified and fully automatic AR-15 in the front passenger seat

Sierra Leone: Arms and ammunition investigations – The Patriotic Vanguard

The Sierra Leone army says three “major arms and ammunition investigations” are currently ongoing involving its members.

A board of inquiry is looking into one, the Ministry of Defence and the police are looking into two other separate ones.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Defence, one of the investigations concerns the “serious shortage” of arms and ammunition assigned to the presidential guards unit of former president Ernest Bai Koroma. Even though they would not give details of the arms and ammunition that are unaccounted for, the shortage was discovered during stock checking exercise by the current Commander of Joint Logistics Unit, Colonel Albert Bockarie.

For this, the commander of the former presidential guard unit, Brigadier General Albert Kargbo has been suspended, while the Officer Commanding, Captain Patrick Kamara is under detention.

A second incident being investigated by the police concerns the discovery at the President’s Lodge of “a large cache of ammunition which appeared to have been dumped in a cesspit sucker-way”, according to a statement from defence headquarters.

The ammunition included 178 rounds of 12.7mm Chinese and 1,606 rounds of 14.5mm Chinese, retrieved in the presence of various security agencies weeks after the March presidential election.
To this, four senior military officers were released to the police for investigations. They are Brigadier General Albert Kargbo (Assistant Chief of Defence Staff for Gender and Equal Opportunities), Brigadier General Ronnie Harleston (Brigade Commander of 5 Infantry Brigade), Colonel George Bangura (Commandant of Peace Mission Training Centre or PMTC) and Lieutenant Colonel Sheku Tejan Sesay (Military Plans and Operations Officer at AU Headquarters in Ethiopia) who is yet to report.

They are being interrogated, say the army, “because of their previous roles and responsibilities, which could have connections with the discovered ammunition”. None of them have been arrested.

Gun-rights group challenges NJ limit on ammunition – FOX 29 News Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A gun-rights group is challenging a recent New Jersey law that strengthens a state ban on large-capacity magazines.

A law passed this year limits most gun owners to magazines that hold 10 rounds of ammunition instead of the 15-round limit in place since 1990.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, in federal appeals court arguments Tuesday in Philadelphia, says the new law hurts only homeowners because criminals won’t follow it.

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office says 10 rounds are enough for self-defense. Assistant Attorney General Jeremy Feigenbaum says mass shooters might be interrupted if they have to reload after 10 rounds.

About seven states, the District of Columbia and several cities have limits on large-capacity magazines. The gun-rights group calls New Jersey’s lower limit an undue burden.
