A pair of Missouri residents connected to a militia group traveled to Kenosha, Wis., amid demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake "to loot and possibly 'pick people off,'" according to a federal criminal complaint.
Michael Karmo, 40, and Cody Smith, 33, both of Hartville, Mo., were arrested Tuesday at a hotel in Kenosha County on federal charges of illegal possession of firearms. Both men are barred from possessing firearms because of past criminal convictions.
Karmo has prior convictions for vehicle theft, evading a peace officer resulting in injury or death and burglary, among other crimes. Smith has a domestic battery conviction.
According to the complaint, the Kenosha Police Department informed the FBI that a law enforcement agency in Iowa received a tip that the pair were traveling to the city with firearms. The FBI obtained messages between Karmo and the tipster, some of which showed Karmo posing with what appeared to be a rifle and drum-style magazine, the complaint said.

More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
This is the typical Left Wing garbage I see on Face Book:
So why do you support the Instigator-in-Chief who encourages right-wing violence amid peaceful protests? Most of the violence in protests comes from right-wing agitators.
A militia would never allow persons who are prohibited from owning firearms from joining. I wonder if the tip off came from within the militia.
Way to project, AGAIN!
Loot? LOL. What the hell so these goddamn America-hating bastards think has been going on for months?
They exist in this state but in a very marginal way. Most are low level criminals who use the second amendment as an excuse for their lifestyles. They were headed to Wisconsin for profit and not ideology.
But did they?
Oh well, I guess we shouldn’t ask that question. /s
So two oddities who came to town will be mentioned prominently on every news and panel discussion for the next 2 months.
And the rest will be “BLM supporters’ political demonstrations expressing support for black people targeted by cops.” Even when burning, beating people pulled from trucks and cars, and shutting down areas as BLM only. That’s all okay?
I continue to loathe the leftist news media people.
Where does it say able bodied 17-45 year old in the second amendment?
We wont win this war being worried about being called racist
This story has an odor about it. The facts are wrong or manipulated. What say ye??
They also do it to brand ALL non-Antifa as horrible miscreants. Again with the projection. They make it sound like tons were rounded up from the evil right wing and found to be guilty of all this.
I’m not talking about the 2nd Amendment, I was talking about the militia as defined by US law https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/246
But membership in the militia is not required for the RKBA.
Im with you on that my FRiend! For a 67 year old guy I can get around pretty well.
Probably because an FBI informant in the militia ratted them out. Every militia has a couple.
We need to find out where to file our complaint and get our well deserved payout.
“This story has an odor about it. The facts are wrong or manipulated. What say ye??”
If the story is a blatant lie on the reporters part, is that reporter in violation of 1A and other insurrection code and statute?
LOL! I think only that you would have a viable excuse to be exempted from a general militia call up.
Bingo. They have an informant or undercover in their group.
