Domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins told the FBI that he found the Family Research Council as a target because they were listed online as an "anti-gay" group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Corkins walked into the FRC's Washington, D.C., headquarters last Aug. 15, carrying a pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition and knapsack filled with 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. He later admitted that he intended "to kill people in the building and then smear a Chick-fil-A sandwich in their face."
He was stopped by FRC buildings operations manager Leo Johnson.
The FRC has now released a video that includes footage from a surveillance camera that shows Johnson heroically stopping the would-be mass murderer.
...The SPLC, a liberal organization, put FRC on its “Hate Map” for the Washington, D.C. area, and describes the FRC as an “anti-gay” group whose “specialty is defaming gays and lesbians.” FRC President Tony Perkins paid tribute this week to Leo Johnson, who single-handedly stopped Corkins. “In an age when it seems heroes are hard to come by, it’s stirring to see a genuine hero in action,” said Perkins.
“Last August, FRC building manager Leo Johnson was temporarily manning the front desk at our Washington headquarters when a now-confessed terrorist intent on killing everyone in the building entered with a handgun and 100 rounds of ammunition,” said Perkins.
“As he drew his gun, Leo courageously charged the attacker into oncoming gunfire,” Perkins added. “Even after sustaining a direct hit to his forearm, he subdued the attacker and wrestled the gun away from him. Leo Johnson’s heroism saved countless lives that day. Now you can see the never-before released security footage that shows just how quickly tragedy was averted. Please share this video with friends, and help pay tribute to a true hero.”
As CNSNews.com reported in February, “In an interview with the FBI following the shooting, as provided in the ‘Statement of Offense,’ Corkins said that ‘(1) intended to enter the FRC that day to kill as many people as possible and smother Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces; (2) he intended to kill the guard who confronted him in the lobby (i.e., Johnson); and (3) he had taken substantial steps in the preceding week in furtherance of carrying out the crimes.’”Corkins also had the address of another group, the Traditional Values Coalition, in his possession. Meanwhile, the SPLC is helping Janet Incompantano and Eric Holder to attack opponents of the Obama Regime as potential domestic terrorists, while Islamist terrorists live off taxpayer funded welfare to plot attacks on our nation.
