A teenager who threatened to open fire in a gay bar and a Planned Parenthood clinic has been arrested.
Justin Olsen, from Ohio, bragged online when he turned 18 about how he couldn’t ‘wait to start stockpiling weapons’ according to a police report.
However, when he started making threats online towards an Ohio gay bar and a Planned Parenthood clinic, FBI raided his house that he shares with his father.
During the raid, police found and seized 25 guns and more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition.
The guns – which included 15 rifles and 10 semi-automatic pistols – were taken by authorities and he has been arrested.
Olsen has been charged with aggravated menacing but claimed he was only making jokes about shooting federal agents and LGBTQ people.
