    Border Militia Leader Could Spend Decade in Prison for Firearms After Three Felony Co

    Border Militia Leader Could Spend Decade in Prison for Firearms After Three Felony Convictions

    The leader of a border militia group could face up to 10 years in prison if he is convicted on the charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. FBI agents arrested the man who has at least three previous felony convictions over the weekend, according to a criminal complaint filed in a New Mexico federal court.

    FBI agents, with the assistance of the Sunland Park Police Department, arrested Larry Mitchell Hopkins on April 20 on a charge that he unlawfully had nine firearms and ammunition in his possession in his residence in San Juan County, New Mexico, in November 2019. According to a criminal complaint, Hopkins is prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition because of at least three previous felony convictions.


    Those felony convictions include impersonating a police officer and unlawful possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon in Oregon in 2006. His record also includes a 1996 conviction in Michigan for the unlawful possession of a loaded firearm.


    Prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Mexico stated in a press release that if Hopkins is convicted on the new firearms violation, he could spend up to 10 years in federal prison.


    In October 2017, FBI agents received information on a public access line about alleged “militia extremist activity” in Flora Vista, New Mexico, the criminal complaint states. The document states the tip was related to a group called the United Constitutional Patriots and their “so-called ‘commander'” Larry Hopkins, a.k.a. Johnny Horton, Jr.


    The complaint continues stating that “witnesses reported seeing members of the United Constitutional Patriots bearing firearms at Hopkin’s residence.” The complaint adds that “Hopkins also allegedly made the statement that the United Constitutional Patriots were training to assassinate George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, because of these individuals support of Antifa.”


    FBI agents traveled to the residence and made contact with Fay Sanders Murphy and Mr. Hopkins, the complaint explains. The couple walked the FBI Special Agents down a hallway to a room Hopkins allegedly referred to as “my office.” When the agents entered the room, they stated that they observed: “approximately 10 firearms leaning against the wall in a closet in plain view.” The agents explain in the complaint that the weapons were in plain view because the closet did not have any doors. The agents reportedly asked Hopkins if he owned the firearms and he replied that they belonged to Murphy, his common-law wife.


    The agents seized nine firearms as evidence and various calibers of ammunition, the complaint states.
    Assistant U.S. Attorney George C. Kraehe is leading the prosecution of the case, according to a written statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Albuquerque. Prosecutors stated that Hopkins remains in custody pending a preliminary hearing and a detention hearing. Those hearings are scheduled for April 29.

    Comment from BB article

    Before PTSD was a 'thing', I got out of the Marines after 13 years and attempted 'self-medication' and treatment...…...I got one felony conviction (198 for my efforts. I had it expunged, yet after 27 years of being able to purchase firearms and vote, some deep-state dweeb suddenly decided that my state 'might' consider my possession charge a 'crime of violence'.…..REALLY??? Yep.....and with a keystroke, I went from law abiding gun-owner to a felon...….and they never told me. Strangely, this happened within a month of me being named as a delegate to the Republican convention, along with the IRS deciding to audit my taxes for the last 7 years. Of course, the NRA, GOA, etc. are of no help whatsoever, as they are more focused on raising $$ for their boards private jets, then they are in helping actual victims of the deep-state. The Comey deep-state traitors are functioning at ALL levels of the FBI.

    Geez, if only we could get American law enforcement to work this fast at removing illegal aliens and prosecuting employers who hire them.
    -------------------------

    I don't remember the FBI getting this upset about a terrorist training ground in Taos county. It must have something to do with the aims of the group.
    --------------------

    Historians will remember when America arrested and detained its own for years but dropped thousands of law-breaking non-citizens into its own cities.
    This really is happening.
    ------------------


    Our government has taken our home away from us.
    We are now second class citizens in our own country.
    Illegals and criminals are now the protected class.
    -------------------------
    No, the real ruling class are the lawyers. 98% of them work at the biggest law firm.... Washington DC.
    ----------------------

    Message: Illegals are pouring in, and if you dare to try and stop it, we'll put you--the American citizen--under the jail.
    -----------------------
    When the government refuses to defend this nation, someone will. For good or ill, people will not continue to sit idly by and be murdered in their own homes. The "law" decries vigilante justice, yet by ignoring the law, the government is forcing people to choose between breaking the "law" or defending their lives.
    -----------------------------
    The dude might or might not be a wacko.... But either way he was doing more to protect America than the FBI has been
    -----------------------------------
    Will the same organizations defending felons voting rights also defend this mans right to bear arms?
    ---------------------------------
    If this guy were a leftist working for a leftist organization this story would have been buried. Instead they showcase it to vilify militia groups. There may come a time when militia groups may be the last defense this country has. Try not to piss them off too much, they might actually still help you when you need it.
    ---------------------------------------
    If felons are supposed to be allowed to vote, shouldn't their rights to have guns also be restored? Not a big fan of the felon voting thing. But the liberals are again cherry picking which "suppressed rights" that help them that they start a crusade over.
    ----------------------------------
    How many baby rapers and drug kingpins got in while the FBI was fixated on this guy?

    ---------------------------------
    He should apply for asylum. He would receive food, shelter, health care,and would be set free until court date...
    ---------------------
    The FBI doing what they do best, arresting AMERICANS who want to defend this country while ignoring the MILLIONS pouring in and the drugs they carry
    -------------------------------
    When the government turns a deaf ear to problems the citizens have to stand up.
