Man tried to use cop’s gun to KILL TRUMP – Feds

Apparently a young man who wanted to kill Trump decided not to bring his own gun to a Vegas Trump rally. Instead he tried to pull a cop’s gun from their holster in order to assassinate Trump, but wasn’t successful:

ASSOCIATED PRESS – A federal officer says a man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas told authorities he tried to grab an officer’s gun so he could kill the candidate.

A complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Nevada charges Michael Steven Sandford with an act of violence on restricted grounds.

It cites a report by Special Agent Swierkowski, whose first name was not included, saying Sandford told officers he drove from California to kill Trump and went to a Las Vegas gun range the day before to learn to shoot.

Sandford later went to a Trump rally at the Treasure Island Casino and approached a Las Vegas police officer to say he wanted an autograph from Trump.

The report says Sandford was arrested after grabbing the handle of an officer’s gun in an attempt to remove it.



What a moron. He barely knew how to shoot, so he thought he could manage to grab a cop’s gun and use that to kill Trump? This guy should go to prison merely of stupidity.
