Anti-cop, “resistance” to government authorities... sounds familiar.

I find that the focus on the selection/collection of weapons that this person owns is out of place. Let him be judged for his alledged harrasement of a public health officer and not his personal choices based on our Constitution.

Again - THIS IS NOT A CRIME, unless I missed something here: "(...) Detectives also found 138 firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition and explosive material at his home."

Ardan- perhaps we need to rethink allowing dangerous individuals to have access to these things.

He was arrested for his crime, not the guns. Why are people making as if it's otherwise. It's never been otherwise for a second. You who are inventing "2nd Amendment" issues are detached from reality. He was arrested for the threats. The part of his personality that are responsible for the threats are legible in his mugshot. Good God. Wake up, already.

This is why we need CalExit - join Oregon, Washington and Hawaii to make the WUSA. We would be a rich, educated and Trump-free country. We could then deport these gun crazies to Trump-USA where they love gun and ammo.
