Rise in Maine Gun Crimes as U.N. Gun Ban Treaty Vote Nears

With less than two weeks before the United Nations' gun ban treaty gets voted on in the U.S. Senate, a suspiciously convenient rash of gun crimes has cropped up in Maine.
On Sunday, Maine State Police seized a number of guns from a Biddeford man after his speeding car was stopped on the Maine Turnpike for criminal speeding.
49 year-old Timothy Courtois was stopped by Trooper Phillip Alexander in the southbound lane of the turnpike about 10 a.m. Sunday after other motorists reported a speeding Mustang with its four way flashers on. Alexander clocked Courtois at 112 mph, arrested him and took him to the York County Jail.
Found inside Courtois' car was an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns and several boxes of ammunition. A search of Courtois's home at 344 Elm St. in Biddeford, later on Sunday, found several additional guns, including a machine gun, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Also found inside his car were recent clippings of the shooting at the Colorado movie theater and Courtois admitted to police he had attended the Batman movie at the Cinemagic Theater in Saco Saturday night with a loaded gun in his backpack. He also told authorities that he was enroute to Derry, NH to shoot a former employer.
In a press release, the State police referred to his gun collection as an "arsenal" in order to attempt to instill fear in the heart of the citizenry.
Courtois was due to make his first court appearance this afternoon in Springvale District Court on initial charges of having a concealed weapon and criminal speed.
The highly suspect story has a man with multiple semi-automatic rifles and handguns in his car, while he is speeding down the Maine turnpike. Where the story doesn't add up is he readily admitted to a plan to kill his former employer, but speeding at over 112 miles per hour would have certainly drawn too much attention to him to make his plan successful. Also, the narrative has him referencing the recent debacle at a showing of the current Batman movie in Colorado and how he claims to have attended the movie in a local theatre the night before with a loaded handgun in his backpack.
"Certainly, if this man was in his right mind and had the intentions to kill, he wouldn't have run his mouth about it," said one Fort Fairfield inhabitant commenting on the story. "If he was going to kill somebody he wouldn't have drawn unnecessary attention to himself by driving over 100 miles per hour on the turnpike," said another.
It is more likely Courtois is a mind control shill deployed by the C.I.A. with a back story written in Langley, Virginia for the purposes of drumming up support for the U.N. treaty that would ultimately disarm all law-abiding Americans.
Other curiously timed gun crimes occurred nearly simultaneously in Maine, one in the western Maine town of Mexico, where State and local police are investigating the shooting of a man inside a mobile home early this morning. In grave condition at Maine Medical Center in Portland is 30 year old Thomas Joudrey, who is being treated for a gunshot wound to the head. Detectives say Joudrey and two other men were at the home at the time of the shooting. One of those two other men then left the scene before police arrived. Being sought for questioning is 28 year old Robert Terrill, who lives at the mobile home. Terrill is six feet tall and weighs about 175 pounds. He left the scene on foot wearing tan pants, black tee shirt and carrying an olive green duffle bag. Anyone with information on Terrill's whereabouts is asked to call 911.
The third man inside the mobile home has been questioned. The shooting took place at 9 Riverside Park, which is off Route 2, near the Wal-Mart store in Mexico. Police were called to the scene about 4:20 a.m.
Later on this morning in Maine one man was killed and a woman is being treated for gunshot wounds following a shooting inside a house in Waldoboro. The shootings were reported about 9:30 this morning at a home at 2177 Friendship Road, when family members of the dead man went to the house to check on his well being. Dead is 32 year old Norman P. Benner. Being treated at Maine Medical Center is 25 year old Arlene Lawless. Both lived together at the house.
A team of State Police detectives are working with Waldoboro Police and Lincoln County deputies investigating the circumstances of the shooting . Lawless was initially taken to Miles Memorial Hospital and later transferred to the Portland hospital.
The house is owned Jeremy McPhee, who also lives at the house.
According to the Maine State Police, there were only 24 homicides in Maine in 2010, increasing to 28 in 2011.
That three shootings occurred on the same date, coinciding with a highly questionable incident with a motorist carrying several guns and issuing an even more suspect story - all just before the U.S. Senate entertains a vote to approve the U.N. gun ban treaty is intriguing to say the least. But when one considers past events, every time a major gun control bill comes before the U.S. Congress, there is a curious rise in high profile gun crimes across the country.
While Maine's Marxist news organizations have done their best to demonize guns with these most recent stories, the majority of the people locally are beginning to see through the facade and understand the events for what they may truly be - propaganda ploys by secretive agencies within the U.S. government using mind control patsies and silent subliminal messaging systems to trigger artificially created gun crimes on cue to bring in a U.N. gun ban treaty that will eventually be geared to disarm all Americans.
