BLP recently covered how a disabled veteran, Jon Wolff, was arrested for open carrying a BB gun.
Now, his legal representative Jonathon Moseley is dialing up the pressure with a complaint that he filed on April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. This complaint was filed in response to Wolff’s arrest for “merely holding a B.B. gun down by his leg, upside down with the trigger hanging down near the ground.” The veteran held the long-gun shaped B.B. along the front tip so that it was hanging down to the group. He then proceeded to lean the gun against the fence.
However, when he yelled at the trespassers in the neighboring parking lot, a woman yelled “He’s got a gun!” The woman was accompanied by a man and went off with him towards a road construction project.
They reported this incident to their supervisor, who later called the City of Fredericksburg Police Department. Wolff would later be arrested for “assault by intimidation” for holding a gun with other people around and for “brandishing” the gun just for holding it down next to his leg. Wolff received two counts for each offense because there were two “victims”. The veteran only asked the trespassers what they were doing in a parking lot across his own backyard.
On March 21, the complaining witnesses admitted at the trial that Wolff never pointed the gun at anyone or waved it. The mere act of having a gun around other people is now a crime in Virginia, provided that someone claims that it made them feel afraid.
On January 3, Wolff heard noise in the private parking lot of the College Heights swimming pool which he knew was closed down for the season.
The veteran was aware that this spot was often frequented by minors who held illegal parties there. On numerous occasions, Wolff saw blue police lights flashing through his living room.
Naturally, when Wolff heard the noise, he grabbed his B.B. gun and proceeded to go outside. He brought the B.B. gun because he was not sure what he was about to get himself into. Because of this, he would later be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted of 30 days in jail for each of two counts of “brandishing.” His jail time was suspended on the grounds of good behavior.
According to Moseley, “The Fredericksburg prosecutor argued that Wolff was guilty of frightening people with his B.B. gun because he grabbed the B.B. gun on the way out his back door for self-protection.” The prosecutor spun that into guilt of assault by intimidation.
In a span of less than 3 weeks, Moseley has been able to raise $8,000 for Wolff’s GoFundMe campaign.
However, Moseley plans on adding plaintiffs to this case.
Numerous individuals are going to “open carry” and therefore want the courts to clarify if they’re allowed to “open carry” or not.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
