Federal charges have been filed against a friend of the gunman who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, authorities say.
Interested in Dayton Mass Shooting?

Ethan Kollie, 24, allegedly lied on federal firearms forms to purchase his own firearm as well as body armor, 100-round drum magazine and unregulated accessory for an AR-15 weapon that gunman Connor Betts used during the Aug. 4 shooting, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Southern District of Ohio.

Hours after the shooting, special agents with the FBI and ATF interviewed Kollie at his home in Kettering, Ohio, after he indicated that he had purchased the items for Betts, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman told reporters at a press conference Monday.

During the course of the initial interview, agents "observed in plain sight" what appeared to be a bong and a pistol and smelled marijuana, Glassman said.

Also from the article:
Kollie allegedly stated that he purchased and stored the items for Betts at his home to hide them from Betts' parents, Glassman said, adding that in May, Kollie and Betts assembled the upper receiver for the AR-15 in Kollie's home, and a couple of weeks after that, Kollie recalled Betts picking up the magazine drum and body armor after they arrived.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Is Kollie related to (anti)AntiFa too?

What proposed law would have stopped this?

We know the answer to that, it is just a rhetorical question.
