SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. - Police have arrested a 19-year-old Skagit County man who threatened on Facebook to "shoot up every school within a 100-mile radius" if his gun rights were taken away after the Connecticut school massacre.

Authorities had been looking for the man, identified as Korry Martinson, 19, since Friday at about 7:20 p.m., after he allegedly posted the threat on his Facebook page, police said.

The threat was seen by several people, who reported it to the Sedro-Woolley police and the Skagit County Sheriff's Office.

Martinson's mother also was contacted by several callers. When she confronted her son about the posting, he got into an argument with her and took off before police arrived at his home.

Authorities had been looking for him ever since, and the FBI was monitoring the case, said Lt. Lin Tucker of the Sedro-Woolley Police Department.

Martinson finally turned himself in on Sunday afternoon, when a friend brought him to the Sedro-Woolley police station. He was placed under arrest and booked into the Skagit County Jail for investigation felony harassment.

A screenshot of the Facebook threat allegedly posted by Martinson said:

"Okay, so about that shooting of the little kids.

"I would personally like to thank the man who did this. You will (be) looked u pon as a hero in my eyes. You have rid the world of 20 future s------- and w-----.

Sounds like a well-adjusted individual. I definitely can't see any issue with people like that being allowed to own firearms. :rolleyes:

No wonder my brother in law is always saying we need to shoot the people like this, among others, all the time. That's his cure all for anything, shoot it!!

I assume felony harassment counts as a felony charge which would make it illegal for him to own guns.

Seen something similar quite often, nearly always see a comment like "Let them try" when someone mentions laws regarding banning firearms and confiscating weapons etc. Why such a strong attachment to the Constitution? Didn't it also declare that a slave was only 60% of a Human being?

Yes, the internet has allowed me to be exposed to idiots from all over the World, so I'm not surprised by most people any more.

If its true with the charge, his guns rights will be taken away, which means he will do as he said anyways? The logic of some gun freaks amaze me.
