Read the Letter the Douglas County Sheriff Wrote About Gun Control Two Years Ago
A few months after Sandy Hook, Hanlin shared an account of a Columbine shooting victim’s father’s testimony before Congress. The account he shared dated back to a 1999 email chain letter that was accurate in quoting the victim’s father but mischaracterized Congress’ reaction to his statement as negative, according to Snopes.
Hanlin expressed support for a “Biker Patriot Army” that planned to confront “1 million Muslims in Washington” on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Many of Hanlin’s posts involved sharing memes supporting gun rights.
