    It was fortunate the cops stopped him and the incident unfolded where and when it did. He might have shouted "kill me" because he knew there was no way out once he was stopped and they found the ammo, etc. in the car. He might have been on his way to a grocery store, school or other place where a number of people would have been gathered. He is dead and we may never know what might have been if not for this incident happening at that place and time.

    I see the fool from St. Joe, IN plead a 20-year prison deal. He even said he got worked up watching FAUX News before driving to Toledo to commit the act. Now this guy in OH is found having Tactical Response literature in his residence. There is a connection, but I think it will be like the long struggle with tobacco industry before anything meaningful gets done regarding guns.

      of where he was going at the time.  I didn't even really find why they stopped him other than "routine traffic stop."  From the dashcam, it wasn't apparent that he broke any traffic laws that i could tell.

      It would be interesting to know where he was headed with that much firepower in the car.
