REVEALED: FedEx killer was a ‘Brony’ obsessed with My Little Pony and bought two rifles after his shotgun was seized under Red Flag Law ‘because he never had a competency hearing’

The gunman who killed eight at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis was a ‘Brony’ obsessed with the children’s cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, who was allowed to legally purchase rifles despite having his own shotgun seized.

Brandon Scott Hole, 19, never had a competency hearing after police seized his gun over suicide concerns last year under Indiana’s ‘red flag’ gun law, records show. 

If a judge had found him dangerous or incompetent at the hearing, Hole would have been barred from buying another gun. If not, his shotgun would have been returned to him under state law.
