West Texas National Socialist Pleads Guilty to Gun Crime
A suspected National Socialist pleaded guilty to a weapons violation and faces up to 10 years in prison, federal prosecutors announced.
Aiden Bruce-Umbaugh, 23, pleaded guilty last month to "possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance", according to a Justice Department statement.
The charge arose from his arrest during a November traffic stop in Post, Texas, where Bruce-Umbaugh was found to be dressed in tactical gear. Officers found in the car three assault-style rifles, a pistol, assorted ammunition, a small canister of marijuana and a vial of THC oil.
In monitored jailhouse telephone conversations, Bruce-Umbaugh declared himself a National Socialist affiliated with the AtomWaffen Division, prosecutors said.
Videos unsealed recently show members of the AtomWaffen Division at self-described hate camps practicing hand-to-hand combat, shooting firearms, employing politically incorrect rhetoric against Jews and calling for race war now!
