Floyd Lee Corkins II, who planned an attack to kill as many people as possible at the Family Research Council in August last year, because of that group's opposition to gay marriage, has pleaded to guilty to "interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition, assault with intent to kill while armed and act of terrorism while armed, a charge based on the shooting being intended to intimidate anyone who is associated with or supports the Family Research Council and other organizations that oppose gay marriage," CBS News reports.
In addition, he: acknowledged in a plea agreement that he intended to kill as many people as possible during the shooting at the Family Research Council in August 2012. He also planned to target other organizations that oppose gay marriage if he wasn't stopped.
Corkins intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of his victims to make a statement about gay rights opponents, he acknowledged during a hearing Wednesday. Chick-fil-A was making headlines at the time because of its president's stated opposition to gay marriage.

Floyd Lee Corkins II
CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, hallooo... anyone home?
And it’ll be called a hate crime, too, right? Hello?
...pleaded to guilty to "interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition, assault with intent to kill while armed and act of terrorism while armed, a charge based on the shooting being intended to intimidate anyone who is associated with or supports the Family Research Council and other organizations that oppose gay marriage," CBS News reports.He'll be the most popular b!tc4 in prison.
He obviously didn’t get the “Zimmerman” treatment...
On NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams gave the story just 17 seconds: In Washington today, police say a man with a gun walked into the offices of the conservative lobbying group the Family Research Council, and opened fire. He never made it past the lobby. He shot a security guard in the arm before the guard was able to subdue him.
On CBS Evening News, substitute anchor Bob Schieffer offered 20 seconds: A gunman opened fire today at the Washington headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobbying group. The man shot a security guard in the arm before that guard and others tackled him, and he was arrested. Police say that the suspect made negative comment about the councils work just before the shooting.
[...]On both NBC and CBS, the FRC brief was followed by a full story promoting President Obamas new deferral program for illegal alien Dream Act students. NBC gave that two minutes, CBS two minutes and fifty seconds.
The fa**ots in the media (network, cable, and print) newsrooms need to step out of the closet. If don’t ask, don’t tell was so bad for the military then America’s news audience deserves to know the truth about how the media is slanting coverage of news items that have homosexual connections.
Same with the blackout on terrorist plots by liberals yet such hysteria that the Tea Party movement was breeding grounds for “anti-government violence”.
The mainstream media is DISHONEST. A sham. Partisan tripe from uber liberal democrats trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the home audience.
Anderson Cooper is a homosexualist? No one at the network knew? Certainly broke a lot of lonely women’s hearts the day that story broke. Maybe they wouldn’t have swallowed his continual message if they weren’t so interested in him as a “hunky mate”.
Media blackout/Moral Absolutes PING
Southern Poverty Law Center will designate the Family Research Council a ‘hate group’
The SPLC’s criteria for listing these organizations was “generally... based on their propagation of known falsehoods claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities and repeated, groundless name-calling.”
On the SPLC’s own definition of “hate group.” (Since there is no legal definition, they just made one up.)
“ a ‘hate group’ has nothing to do with criminality [or] potential for violence ” Rather, as Potok put it, “Its all about ideology.”
No crime, no violence, just “wrong thinking”.
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said. [Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance Posted on 01/31/2013 5:08:50 PM PST]
Another violent leftist looking to kill people.
I see a trend here.
