A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy has admitted he lied about an incident in which he claimed to have been shot from an open window in an apartment complex.
Angel Reinosa totally fabricated the shooting. He admitted to investigators that the claim was a hoax on Saturday, concocted because he had recently received unfavorable performance reviews related to his performance as a law enforcement officer.
Reinosa claimed he was fired at from an apartment building while standing in a Lancaster parking lot on Wednesday. First responders became suspicious of his story when he arrived at an emergency without any visible gunshot wound. He later admitted to investigators that he poked a hole in his uniform with a knife.
In a Saturday night news conference, Captain Kent Wegener made it clear that “there was no sniper, no shots fired and no gunshot injuries sustained to his shoulder — completely fabricated.”
Reinosa’s hoax set off a lengthy and complicated law enforcement operation hoping to catch the window shooter, who never even existed. The residents of a four-story apartment building were hassled and treated as criminals as cops searched for a supposed sniper.
In an embarrassing development for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, they tweeted about detaining two individuals for “being uncooperative” during the search for the fake shooter.
Cops also seized someone’s pellet rifle in a laughable attempt to find the “sniper’s” rifle.
*UPD* 2 adults detained re uncoop during operation, active search concluded, investigation ongoing & scene still active.

The agency now owes a sincere apology to the individuals it placed in custody, all on the basis of an elaborate hoax created by a deputy seeking to play the victim.
Reinosa has given law enforcement officers who obey their oath to serve the public a bad name. He’s been relieved of his duties, and it’s likely he’ll soon face criminal charges for his hoax.
Should gun control and “red flag” gun confiscation measures be enacted by the state of California, corrupt hoaxsters like Angel Reinosa will be given arbitrary power to unlawfully seize the legally owned firearms of American patriots.
New Group of Turncoat Gun Owners is Being Launched to Push for Civilian Disarmament
Giffords, an anti-Second Amendment organization created by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, is launching a new group of gun owners to challenge pro-gun groups across the nation.
Building off a coalition that was set up in 2018, Gun Owners for Safety was recently unveiled and has chapters present in Colorado, Minnesota and Texas. It will serve as a counterbalance against pro-gun organizations and will push for gun control measures nationwide.
“I think whether you’re talking about politics, whether you’re talking about lobbying, whether you’re talking about culture change, what’s vitally important is that we focus on the millions of Americans at the center of our politics. If we’re going to have long-term durable change in this country, it can’t just be the activists on the left and the activists on the right. We really have to move the center,” Giffords Executive Director Peter Ambler declared.
Giffords is the wife of Arizona Senate candidate Mark Kelly. She is also a gun owner and according to Ambler, Giffords was one of the most moderate members during her time serving in the U.S. House.
Ambler claims that the group’s organizers have already reached out to approximately 50,000 gun owners all across the nation “who are fed up with the NRA,” Ambler stated. According to a report by The Hill, the group’s members “include hunters, collectors, veterans, former law enforcement and others who value firearm ownership but also want to reduce gun violence.”
“These men and women were eager, at a time when our values of our country are being debated, to raise their hand and show politicians, show the country, that the vast majority of gun owners support safer gun laws,” Ambler remarked. The Executive Director of Giffords said that universal background checks are a central policy item for the group.
The NRA has become a punching bag of sorts for many gun control groups. Despite some of its questionable dedication to certain gun rights causes, the kind of persecution the NRA is facing from the state of New York for allegedly mismanaging funds and being involved in other forms of corruption.
“Put your foot in the shoes of an American gun owner, do you want to be part of the NRA, which is embroiled in legal and ethical controversy?” Ambler inquired. “The NRA wants you to believe that you can’t have your Second Amendment and pursue laws like … universal background checks.”
“American voters are hungry for campaigns and messages and groups of people who are attempting to bring people together to accomplish something that serves all Americans. That’s why Gabby is working so hard to organize fellow gun owners across the country,” Ambler commented.
The pro-gun control movement is not playing around. They will use every strategy in the book to try to destroy the Second Amendment. Gun owners should prepare themselves for the most unorthodox of attacks that come from this desperate anti-freedom lobby.
