Seriously, who thinks it's a good idea to make a martyr out of Donald Drumpf? Not me. And when I say I hate our lax gun laws, that means I hate them for whomever the target might be.

We're not going to show the name of the disturbed teen (a British National and white male). He apparently thought martyring a fascist is a good idea. NO. Just DO NOT DO THIS.

[He] did not enter a plea when he appeared before a judge in Nevada and was remanded in custody until a hearing on 5 July.

He is charged with an act of violence "on restricted grounds".

He had reportedly tried to seize the gun after saying he was seeking Mr Trump's autograph at Saturday's rally.

He said he had been planning to try and shoot Mr Trump for about a year but had decided to act now because he finally felt confident enough to do so, court papers say.

A federal judge found [the defendant], who reportedly appeared in court in shackles, to be a danger and risk of non-appearance, and he was ordered detained pending his preliminary hearing.

I 100 percent condemn his intention and attempt to act. But I do have to wonder where all those immigration hounds are yammering away about how the immigrants are causing all the trouble. Oh, that's right. Only brown immigrants are considered threats.

Can you help us out?
