US Capitol Police arrested a Virginia man as he attempted to pass through a police checkpoint in downtown Washington, DC, Friday with fake inaugural credentials, a loaded handgun and more than 500 rounds of ammunition, according to a police report and a law enforcement source briefed on the situation.

The incident occurred shortly after 6:30 p.m. when Wesley Allen Beeler pulled his pick-up truck to a police vehicle checkpoint at North Capitol and E Street NE, just north of the Capitol building, the source told CNN.

Beeler, from Front Royal, Virginia, presented officers with what was described as an unauthorized inauguration credential.

It looks like maybe it was a genuine inauguration credential and he was supposed to be there working private security. Hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

500 rounds of ammunition? Surely the 'good guys' should hire people with better aim - if this is the case. coffee

No shiit! 500 rounds out of a handgun does not suggest law enforcement or security...


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Ive also heard he has reached for Gun-Nut Excuse 1.A I forgot it was there. Yeah, you forget what you did with a loaded weapon and were supposed to think its just hunky dory that you have weapons and ammo?!?
