A New York plastic surgeon was found with an arsenal of weapons, including multiple assault-style rifles, ammunition and knives, after he allegedly threatened his estrange wife, according to authorities.

Dr. Matthew Bonanno, 47, was arrested Monday night at Growler's Beer Bistro in Tuckahoe, New York, on multiple criminal possession of weapons charges, police said.

The arrest came after a tipster told authorities they heard the plastic surgeon at the bar "say he wanted to kill his wife and family," according to Tuckahoe Police. Bonanno was illegally in possession of a loaded Glock semi-automatic handgun at the bar, police said.

When police searched Bonanno's car, they found five assault-style rifles fully loaded with high-capacity magazines, three handguns, 29 high-capacity magazines and over 1,600 rounds of ammunition, police said.

5. (Per NBC) The guy caught a ride to the bar with someone, *leaving his car by his wife's home*..

That would be the car with:

https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Matthew-Bonanno-Arrest-Gun-Stash-Westchester-Tuckahoe-Police-Threats-542538231.html

...Bonanno had gotten a ride to the bar with a friend. Cops found his car parked in front of his wife's house in Tuckahoe, and it was a search of that vehicle that yielded the monstrous stash of weapons, officials say. Aside from the rifles, ammunition and armor, Bonanno also allegedly had pepper spray, scopes, binoculars, 29 high-capacity loaded magazines, handguns, a stun gun, handcuffs, face masks and brass knuckles. That was his car.

Bonanno has two known houses -- one in Mount Pleasant and one in Great Neck, on Long Island. Another three unlicensed handguns were recovered from the Mount Pleasant home, while another huge stash -- more rifles, a shotgun, handguns, high-capacity magazines, smoke grenades, body armor and other weapons -- was recovered at the Long Island residence, authorities say.
...
Bonanno has a past order of protection involving his wife, though it wasn't clear if that remained in effect Wednesday.

12. A Common Trait Among Mass Killers: Hatred Toward Women

Cross post from Editorials & Other Articles (Forum)

Hat Tip to Zorro.



The man who shot nine people to death last weekend in Dayton, Ohio, seethed at female classmates and threatened them with violence.

The man who massacred 49 people in an Orlando nightclub in 2016 beat his wife while she was pregnant, she told authorities.

The man who killed 26 people in a church in Sutherland Springs, Tex., in 2017 had been convicted of domestic violence. His ex-wife said he once told her that he could bury her body where no one would ever find it.

The motivations of men who commit mass shootings are often muddled, complex or unknown. But one common thread that connects many of them other than access to powerful firearms is a history of hating women, assaulting wives, girlfriends and female family members, or sharing misogynistic views online, researchers say.
