Cops seize guns from Arlington comics-store asshole

You may recall Travis Corcoran, erstwhile blogger and founder of the online comics store, the guy who saw fit to post some advice to would-be assassins immediately after the Giffords shooting. Under the title "1 down, 534 to go" Corcoran wrote (on his now-defunct blog):

It is absolutely, absolutely unacceptable to shoot “indiscriminately”.

Target only politicians and their staff, and leave regular citizens alone.


The twittersphere ignited, customers dropped their subscriptions, and most importantly, police took notice. After Arlington cops found an article about Corcoran's asshole remarks, they deemed it a "credible threat" against the rest of Congress. They suspended his firearms license, and seized a "large amount" of guns and ammo from his Arlington home. The investigation is ongoing. To quote twitter commenter @DrSchadNFreude, "I guess you'll choose your words a bit more carefully next time, huh, dipshit?"
