Title: Sharing Memes – Man Ends Up Red Flagged

How many of us have a “dark” sense of humor? One Connecticut man, Brandon Wagshol, was “red flagged” after he shared a boogaloo meme and talked about buying gun parts online from out of state. Someone viewed it as threatening.

Wagshol’s sharing of memes and talk of purchasing gun parts – without making any threats, by the way- got the attention of someone who reported him to police. He is now under arrest on a $250,000 bond that can only be posted AFTER his hearing on September 6.

“What I understand is that he didn’t make any comments on Facebook, but there may have been other memes, as they call them, that he might have reposted.” Attorney Darnell Crosland

The article said his posts were “alarming.” He shared a “boogaloo” meme. Those of you who know what those are understand that they are extremely dark in their “humor.” He denies any desire to commit a mass shooting.

“Boogaloo” – a slang term for shit-hits-the-fan, or government gone bad and they’re coming for you, time to fight back. Boogaloo toys refers to guns. The opposite of “bugging out.”

“Alphabet bois” – ATF, FBI, DEA, etc.

“Coat hanger sears” – hand-crafted drop-in auto sears for an AR.

According to News12 Connecticut,

FBI investigators say the Norwalk Police Department received a tip about Wagshol’s activity from a concerned citizen. The joint investigation began after the FBI received a tip that Wagshol was trying to buy high capacity magazines from out of state.

Police say all the weapons recovered from the home are legally owned and registered to Wagshol’s father, but that the 22-year-old had access to them. Investigators also recovered body armor with a titanium plate, camouflage shirt, pant and belt, ballistic helmet, tactical gloves, camouflage bag and computers.News12

Wagshol has been banned from the campus of the college he was attending. The media is calling this a ‘mass murder plot foiled.’ But was it really? A Boogaloo meme is not about mass murder, it’s about defending yourself from the government.

“Red Flagged” over sharing memes

While Wagshol obviously made mistakes and really did not ‘do everything correct,’ there is a worry about those “tips from concerned citizens” and the sharing of “memes.” Especially regarding US Military veterans, who often own items exactly like the ones police confiscated from Wagshol. And they love to share memes on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Instagram has blacklisted any reference to the word “boogaloo.” Big Tech appears to feel that such memes are dangerous and need to be banned.

While Wagshol obviously "made mistakes" and really did not "do everything correct" ...

He was charged with four counts of illegal possession of large capacity magazines. So, yeah.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Yep. The 22-year-old wasn't charged with any of that and neither was the father. Why are you bringing it up?

They took his LEGALLY OWNED GUNS because Wagshol shared memes and talked of purchasing gun parts – without making any threats, by the way.

Someone reported him to police.

They seized the weapons because the 22-year-old babbling idiot had access to them. He was arrested and charged with four counts of illegal possession of large capacity magazines.

Yeah, that was based on a tip. But it had nothing to do with Connecticut's red flag laws.

He posted a fucking MEME!

And yeah, he was "red-flagged".

But then as I recall, you and Trump are in favor of those unconstitutional laws.

Was that a false charge?

****

Magazines holding more than 10 rounds are considered Large Capacity Magazines and are prohibited.

The law is an infringement on the Second Amendment, which is why the vast majority of patriotic gun owners have refused to turn them in.

Connecticut Shouldn't Be Surprised That "Fewer People Than Expected Have Registered Weapons"

I'm not surprised to see you cheering the gun grabbers, you and paulsen both.

On the fucking Internet! For everyone in the world to see!

"And yeah, he was "red-flagged"."

"Red flag" laws had nothing to do with his arrest.

"But then as I recall, you and Trump are in favor of those unconstitutional laws."

These are state laws. Connecticut laws only affect Connecticut residents. If this is what the citizens of Connecticut want, who am I to challenge that?

By his living in the house, both he and his father are deemed to have control of the magazines and therefore, he had possession.

He has access, he had possession – and he was charged on four counts.

Forget the “fucking MEME” …

A libertarian calls resenting facts "licking jackboots."

How unique ...

I am cheering nothing - I am simply presenting facts.

This is relative to the discussion on the case we are discussing - HOW?
