Wondering if he’s a member if the NRA.
A gay Virginia man is in jail after posting multiple tweets in which he threatened to shoot at least two United States senators, WRC-TV reported.
Kyler Schmitz, who works as an Uber driver, sent the tweets in the days immediately following the terrorist attack on a gay Orlando nightclub earlier this month. According to testimony delivered Monday at a Virginia court hearing, Schmitz allegedly threatened to shoot Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) in a tweet directed at the senator’s official Twitter handle.
The tweets, which reportedly included explicit and violent language, prompted an investigation led by U.S. Capitol Police.
In the hours after Schmitz posted some of the messages, authorities used an automated license plate reader to track down his car, which was within two blocks of the U.S. Capitol, prosecutors said Monday.
Because #LoveWins and “tolerance” and rainbows.
