The intruder who made it to the front door of the White House was arrested in July by Virginia state police with weapons in his car and a map to the White House.


On Monday, federal prosecutors said that officers found 800 rounds of ammunition, two hatchets and a machete in the car of Omar Jose Gonzalez, 42, of Texas, after they searched it on Friday. The prosecutors made their disclosure before a judge as they argued that Mr. Gonzalez should continue to be held in jail because he posed a danger to President Obama…

In late August, Secret Service officers stopped Mr. Gonzalez in front of the fence on the White House’s South Lawn after they noticed a hatchet in his waistband, the officials said. The officers searched Mr. Gonzalez’s car, finding two dogs, camping equipment but no weapons. He was not arrested or questioned further.

In July, Mr. Gonzalez was arrested after he led Virginia troopers on a high-speed pursuit along Interstate 81 in Southwest Virginia in his Ford Bronco. After being stopped, police found the vehicle filled with weapons, according to a release by the state police.

Among the items found in Mr. Gonzalez’s vehicle in July was a mini-arsenal of 11 guns including two shotguns and four rifles, some equipped with scopes and bipods that a sniper would use and “a map of Washington, D.C., with writing and a line drawn to the White House,” law enforcement officials said. He also had four pistols, three of them loaded, and a revolver. The inventory of Mr. Gonzales’ vehicle listed by the Virginia State Police indicates the items were found stored in his vehicle’s “bulky floor.”[su_csky_ad]

      Because a long time ago Ronnie Raygun decided it cost too much money to provide treatment to these people, devastating all mental health services since.

    I know a loaded weapon in a car in many states is illegal I wonder what their excuse is for not filing some pretty serious charges?

      mental issues, probably received a 72 hour hold, exam and released with the proper meds that his family says he does not take for long

        Yeah, according to the news he’s got PTSD.
        It seems the Secret Service is trying to divert the narrative from their own incompetence to increasing security around the White House. Some items in the Distraction List are closing Pennsylvania Ave. to pedestrian traffic, expanding the security zone around the White House and setting up checkpoints.
        As far as I can tell, it was not the lack of any of these that allowed this guy to get to the White House. It appears to me to be a case of Secret Service officers sleeping on the job. THAT is the story here.
        It has been one incident after the other for several years now and the Secret Service has brought upon itself a reputation for being a Mickey Mouse outfit.
        The firing of officers on duty should have been announced immediately, as well as the firing of the officer in charge when this happened.

          And who is the ultimate boss of the Secret Service? That’s right, Barack Obama. Like everything else this guy controls, it becomes but a shadow of it’s former self.

      Liberal incompetence.

    Aside from the fact that he was doing this on the WH grounds…how are his activities any different from lots of folks who think that weapons are essential to their lifestyle?

    But they kept letting him go. He should have been put on Watch. I doubt everyone would be able to go free; after so many stops with weapons!!
