Law & Crime reports:
A Vietnam veteran who brought nearly a dozen Molotov cocktails to the Capitol Hill area of the nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6 has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison.
Lonnie Leroy Coffman, 72, had admitted to driving from his home in Alabama to Washington in a truck loaded with what U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly called a “small armory” of weapons. Coffman pleaded guilty in November.
According to court documents, Coffman had several loaded firearms within arm’s reach of the driver’s seat, including a 9mm handgun in the front right passenger seat, a rifle, and a shotgun.
