Gun activist found guilty

An outspoken gun rights advocate was found guilty Monday of refusing orders to leave by guards at the federal courthouse in Spokane during an armed protest in February. Anthony Bosworth will be sentenced Nov. 10 in the case, which has prompted multiple protests in what activists see as overzealous gun regulations by federal authorities. Bosworth faces a maximum sentence of 30 days in prison for the misdemeanor. His attorney, David Stevens, said he was considering an appeal. U.S. Magistrate Judge John T. Rodgers, in a bench trial with no jury, found that Bosworth was in violation of a federal law that requires notice that the offender has run afoul of gun restrictions at federal facilities/Kip Hill, SR.
