A 65-year-old Salina man had 4 handguns confiscated from him Monday, after he had announced via social media and e-mail, he planned to travel to Osawatomie Tuesday and arrest President Barack Obama while he spoke at the high school.
Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, said Captain Brian Shea and Lt. Brent Melander went with the Secret Service to the home of J Neil Jednoralski late Monday afternoon to talk to Jednoralski about the statements that he had made on Facebook and e-mails regarding President Obama.
Sheriff Kochanowski said Jednoralski turned the guns over to a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper who is a neighbor, who then turned the guns over to the Sheriffs Office. The guns will be returned to Jednoralski when the President leaves the state of Kansas. The following is the e-mail that Jednoralski sent out to members of the media and others Monday evening:
The US Security Service was just here, because KANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL DEREK SCHMIDT called them about my attempt to ARREST Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., tomorrow at the Osawatomie High School. So KS Attorney General is no friend of the Tea Party Movement, and will not prosecute Obama for not being qualified to be President of the United States!! PLUS he ignored his responsibility of the STATE’s RIGHTS of Kansas!!
I was told if I show up, I will be arrested for TRESPASS. Question: Trespass on PUBIC PROPERTY?
The Saline County Sheriff’s office has all my firearms and handcuffs, until 5;00 PM Tuesday. I turned them over to my neighbor KS State Trooper , and he then turned them over to the Saline County Sheriff’ office.
I know what their are doing, but do they have the right to take my firearms, by the Second Amendment? What do you say John Reynolds, NRA member, Attorney, and Saline County Commissioner?
I will not attend the event in Osawatomie, tomorrow, because of a FEDERAL THREAT of TRESPASS on PUBLIC PROPERTY!!
Request by the media to take pictures of the handguns and handcuffs were denied by the Secret Service.
