FBI agents found more than 1,600 spent shell casings at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge boat launch in Oregon, where protesters occupied the area for 41 days earlier this year.

The findings were shared with jurors in a video that showed seven or eight men firing assault rifles, the Oregonian reports. 

Assistant U.S Attorney Ethan Knight said the video undermines defense attorneys’ claims that the armed standoff was a peaceful demonstration.

“It’s direct evidence of force,” Knight told the judge.

The Oregonian reports:

FBI agents, photographers and forensic accountants who were part of the agency’s Evidence Response Team spent the day testifying about what they recovered from the bird sanctuary in late February after the 41-day occupation. Bundy and six co-defendants are on trial, charged with conspiring to impede federal employees from the refuge through force, intimidation or threats.

The agents described dozens of boxes of ammunition found in multiple sites, rifle cases left in the refuge archaeologist’s office, a trench filled with trash bags near the RV park on the eastern edge of refuge headquarters, three cut padlocks located in a dumpster outside the bunkhouse, a “Tyranny” sign propped up at the refuge’s front gate and an improvised bunker dug out by the back gate of the refuge.

They also revealed handwritten notes they seized from the bunkhouse and elsewhere that described tactical training, formations and drills, guard duty schedules and individual assignments such as “rifleman” or “medic.”

FBI Special Agent Christopher Chew said he was the senior team leader, managing the search and seizure of evidence from Feb. 12 through Feb. 23. He said there were FBI evidence teams that helped Portland agents from Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver and San Antonio.

Trump Appeared to Invoke Violence Against Clinton by Suggesting Her Secret Service Agents Disarm

Donald Trump once again appeared to invoke violence against Hillary Cinton when he suggested her Secret Service bodyguards disarm.

“Let’s see what happens,” Trump said, falsely suggesting Clinton wanted to ban the Second Amendment.

At a rally in Miami on Friday night, Trump called on Clinton’s Secret Service agents to “drop all weapons.”

“What do you think, yes?” he asked the crowd. “Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, OK? It would be very dangerous.”

Clinton’s campaign responded that Trump’s comments show he is unfit to hold office.

“Whether this is done to provoke protesters at a rally or casually or even as a joke, it is an unacceptable quality in anyone seeking the job of commander in chief,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement.

“I think they should disarm immediately,” Trump told elected supporters.

Report: Secret Service Contacted Trump’s Campaign After Second Amendment Comments

The Secret Service has tried to contact Donald Trump’s campaign after his suggestion that “Second Amendment people” could stop Hillary Clinton from making Supreme Court picks if she’s elected, according to a CNN report. 

But Trump maintains no one tried to contact him and said the CNN report was “a made up story” for ratings.

The Secret Service said the information did not come from the public affairs office, but could not confirm whether someone else in the agency made the statement.

“Those statements did not come from our public affairs office,” said Joseph Casey, a spokesperson for the Secret Service.

This is what Trump said that caused concerns that he was promoting violence against a presidential candidate: “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The case against a Homeland Security analyst continues to get more alarming.

After Jonathan Wienke tried to walk into a Homeland Security building with a gun, knife, infrared camera, handcuffs and pepper spray in his backpack, authorities have found more weapons at his West Virginia home, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reports.

Investigators found sawed-off plastic pipes, glue, walkie-talkies with extra wiring, tools and 10 boxes of magnesium shavings, oxidizers and thermite in the 45-year-old’s house.

The ATF said the weapons could be used to make explosives but not in their current form.

Wienke, who faces up to 10 years in prison on the original charges, pleaded not guilty to firearms charges last month.

No matter how often the TSA reminds airline passengers not to bring weapons on carry-on bags, security continues to find guns, grenades and other weapons.

In the week spanning from July 22-29, for example, TSA officers found 74 firearms, three inert grenades, a cleaver and several pocketknives, Fox News reports. 

Of the 74 guns found, 65 were loaded.

“Unfortunately these sorts of occurrences are all too frequent which is why we talk about these finds,” TSA Social Media Team member Bob Burns wrote on the blog. “Sure, it’s great to share the things that our officers are finding, but at the same time, each time we find a dangerous item, the line is slowed down and a passenger that likely had no ill intent ends up with a citation or in some cases is even arrested.”

Two Homeland Security employees have been arrested in the past month for taking a handgun inside the secured grounds of the department’s headquarters.

Security officers arrested Thomas Pressley for allegedly possessing a 9-millimeter handgun in a leather handbag while inside the complex, News4 reports. 

Pressley, who has been jailed, is a contractor for information technology. He is charged with carrying a pistol without a license.

“The weapon appeared to be fully functional, capable of being fired by a single hand, and designed to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive,” according to a police report.

About a month ago, another Homeland Security was accused of carrying a loaded .22-caliber handgun with five hollow point bullets.
