Self Described Vermont White Nationalist Facing Weapons Charges

A self-described white nationalist from Bennington, whose on-line harassment and threats prompted the resignation of Vermont's only black lawmaker, was in court on Thursday on unrelated weapons charges.

Max Misch is accused of illegally buying several oversized gun magazines, each capable of holding 30 rounds, in violation of Vermont's gun laws.

The charges against Misch are unrelated to the on-line threats that prompted Kiah Morris to resign from Vermont's legislature.

State Attorney General T.J. Donovan says at the time that he couldn't prosecute him because this was protected First Amendment speech, and feels Misch is a ticking time bomb.

A judge released Misch on the weapons charges, but ordered him to surrender all of his remaining gun magazines and assault rifles.
