Los Angeles, Calif. – A 20-year-old man accused of posting photos on Twitter showing a rifle pointed toward streets, each with the caption "'100 RT's (Re-Tweets) and i'll shoot someone walking," was behind arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats.

Twitter has removed suspect Dakkari Mcanuff's account. But L.A. Weekly captured some of them cached. 

Mcanuff was arrested around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, after police learned of his Twitter account, authorities said.

Officers took Mcanuff into custody at his residence in the 700 block of Ninth Street, where an air rifle was discovered, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

He was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats, and was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, police said.

I think @Tideline has a good point, I can not remember a single story on the patch concerning a positive outcome on a gun related story, always gun accidents or criminal acts committed with a gun. How about a gun SAVING a life by preventing a violent crime. Even better, without having to even discharge the firearm. They are out there, we just don't hear about them from the MSM.

Heywood, The Patch only runs stories that portray guns and gun owner's in a negative light, those are the hallmarks of an anti gun hacket job. As for the positive stories about guns being used in defense of life and property, as the Second Amendment guarantees, there are plenty of those stories, you just don't see them in the anti gun media. Watch NRA News with Cam and Company and they spend 5-10 min 5 days a week on lawabiding firearms owners using firearms in defense of life and property. More lives are saved by firearms each year than lost due to crime and accidents combined.

Pauly, you don't read about Pro Gun stories because the anti gun main stream media and anti gun AOL/Patch don't like guns, so they feed their readers only anti gun stories. The only Pro Gun stories that have been put up on the Patch, are the ones I have posted. Tell all your friends to vote for Rob Astorino for Governor
