Christopher Michael Straub ran away from and shot at California deputies before he was fatally shot on Thursday, September 24, 2020.© San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's/San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Christopher Michael Straub ran away from and shot at California deputies before he was fatally shot on Thursday, September 24, 2020.
The shooting took place Thursday morning when deputies at first tried to conduct a traffic stop on Christopher Michael Straub, 38, near a cemetery. Straub got out of his vehicle and ran through the vineyards of the cemetery, the release said.

He then hid and ambushed deputies, firing multiple rounds at them with a handgun. Deputy Richard "Ted" Lehnhoff, 34, was hit in the leg and airlifted to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery and is in stable condition, the release said.

Straub continued evading deputies and attempted to return to his vehicle through the vineyard, but additional deputies arrived on scene and intercepted him as he tried to regain access to his vehicle

Good fucking riddance to POS rubbish.

2. I was just about ready to post the same article

What got me was:

"Authorities searched Straub's residence, where they discovered he was illegally manufacturing weapons parts.
"Straub was a wanted felon and it is illegal for felons to possess any weapons," the sheriff's office said.
The sheriff's office said Straub was a known member of a white supremacist gang and the Sheriff's Gang Task Force was already conducting an investigation before Thursday's shooting.

Straub "had a significant criminal history having been booked 28 times into jails all across California including two incarcerations in state prison,"

And the weapons found IN HIS CAR (Boggles what other weapons he was hiding)

16. Well more than that, unfortunately

Probably close to 450 million now

This is from almost 4 years ago:

393,347,000

Ranking by country for civilian-held firearms per 100 population. Small Arms Survey 2017.
Country (or dependent territory, subnational area, etc.) Estimate of firearms in civilian possession
1 United States 393,347,000

I have seen estimates as high as 600 million

I know it's true, which is why it's so frightening. There are way too many of these people out there just hiding in plain sight. I am really worried about what life will be like when the pendulum starts swinging the other way.

10. Wow

Cops shot and killed a man who was actually armed and dangerous. A real instance of where they could justifiably claim they feared for their life.

This is a case where no reasonable person could find fault with their actions.

After Joe Biden takes office, he should direct his DOJ to designate these militia groups as domestic terrorist org. and arrest and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

23. And, dollars to donuts,

probably the majority of them are convicted felons who have no right even holding a firearm, much less own one, another violation of the law that can be used against those that are found in possession of a firearm.

https://www.richardhornsby.com/federal/crimes/felon-in-possession-of-firearm.html#:~:text=Penalties%20for%20Felon%20in%20Possession%20of%20a%20Firearm.,Guidelines%2C%20a%20person%20convicted%20of%20Felon%20in%20Possession

Penalties for Felon in Possession of a Firearm
Under federal law, the crime of Felon in Possession of a Firearm is a Class D felony, punishable by up to ten years in prison, three years of supervised release, and $250,000 in fines.

Under the United States Sentencing Guidelines, a person convicted of Felon in Possession of a Firearm would be assigned a base offense level between 12-26, which carries a guideline range of 10-78 months in prison before taking into account any mitigating or aggravating circumstances.

As of 2016, the average federal sentence imposed for Felon in Possession of a Firearm fell between 46-75 months in prison.


Lots of good info on the Federal law concerning Felon in possession of a firearm at this site.

These aren't your camo-dude poseurs

They will kill without a second thought

My nightmare is a political group manages to harness them. Trump is already bragging about his biker gang support.

CA, OH, & VA all had big biker gatherings for Biden yesterday.
There's one planned in Illinois for today.
PINO doesn't have all the bikers.

interest in investigating this shooting. Change my mind.

25. Ok, I get what you're saying,

but there will still be an investigation by the police and DA's shooting team.

Bottom line is that there is one less domestic terrorist in the country, which, IMO, is a grand thing.

Cops lie all the time, and people have to be especially careful when the lie is one they want to hear.

28. I think in this case, this is a well justified homicide,

this guy was well known to LE, he had a long record, including 2 stints in a state prison, he shot at police, the amount of firearms/ammo found in his vehicle indicates that he was up to no good, he was manufacturing firearm parts at his home, probably to sell to his white supremacist friends.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over this POS's demise.

Most DA shooting teams are pretty competent, they know what to look for.
