From ArsTechnica:

Two men who were arrested last year for making online threats and bringing guns and ammunition to a Boston Pokemon card game tournament have been sentenced to two years each in prison and two years of probation afterwards. The Boston Globe reports that James Stumbo and Kevin Norton plead guilty to unlawful possession of the guns and nearly 300 rounds of ammunition found in their car outside the Hynes Convention Center event last August.

Stumbo and Norton, both well-known members of the high-level Pokemon card playing community, were arrested after driving from Iowa to Boston for the event as well as posting messages on Facebook showing off the guns and threatening to “kill the competition.” Another message stated that “my AR-15 says that you lose.” Event security was warned about the postings and notified the police before informing attendees of the issue.

Miller’s attorney, Robert LeRoy, tried to downplay the pair’s online postings as “adolescent stuff” that “wasn’t threatening in any capacity.” He also defended their actions by contrasting Iowa’s relatively lax gun laws with the stricter regulations in Massachusetts. “They basically always drive around with loaded guns in the trunk in Iowa,” he said, according to the Globe report.
