Man Arrested for Trying to Enter Federal Courthouse With Guns

A man dressed in body armor and carrying a cache of loaded guns in his car was arrested after attempting to enter a federal courthouse in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning.

Erik Christopher Younggren, 34, of Cherry Valley, was arrested after he attempted to pass through a security checkpoint in a parking lot outside the Edward R. Roybal Federal Building in downtown Los Angeles
carrying two rifles, a .45-caliber semi-automatic firearm and approximately 565 rounds of ammunition. Younggren, who is from Riverside County, was
also dressed in a full-body armor suit with knives attached and loaded magazines.

U.S. Attorney Maria Elena Stiteler alleged that Younggren attempted to enter the courthouse parking facility at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. He told security officials that he was an important witness in an ongoing case at the courthouse.
He told members of the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security that
... he was purportedly a (secret) confidential informant assigned to a (secret) confidential federal task force, according to the criminal complaint.

He was charged with attempted possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in a federal facility, a misdemeanor offense that carries a sentence of up to one year in federal prison. He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday afternoon to answer the criminal complaint filed in federal court on Thursday afternoon.

2. Up to 1 year on a misdemeanor weapons beef sounds really tough ...

I guess lying to the FBI is no biggie?

Feds are cracking down HARD on the wingnut whackadoodles in these times, sure to be a real deterrent.

3. I hope they confiscated the firearms.

I'm sure a visit to his residence would yield a lot more firepower. This guy's mind sounds like a bomb about to explode. Why they didn't hold him for psychiatric examination is beyond me.

6. We really need to address mental illness in this country.

I am not at all being sarcastic. A lot of what we are dealing in the last 10-20 years, and getting worse, is the lack of good medical care.
