One of the individuals arrested in the domestic terror plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer had worked at the gun shop.

Eric Trump canceled a campaign event to be held Tuesday at Huron Valley Guns after a former employee of the gun shop was linked to the domestic terror plot to kidnap the state’s governor and overthrow the government, WDIV Local 4 reported.

“In February 2020 we had a young man that worked on the range who would show up for work in a LOT of tactical gear. We found that a little odd. We weren’t comfortable with him for a few other reasons and fired him after 3 weeks. He ended up being one of the fringe characters arrested for the Governor Whitmer kidnapping,” wrote Huron Valley Guns in a Facebook post announcing the Trump campaign had changed venues for the event.

The post went on to read, “The Governor would have had a field day against the Trump campaign. They would accuse the administration of sending his son to a facility where terrorists work and train. This could not be further from the truth, but imagine the left spin.”

“While we are completely disappointed, we would not want anything to hurt the chances of President Trump,” the gun shop’s post concluded. “So for that, we are glad this came out before the event occurred.”

WDIV Local 4 noted that “Just last week 13 men were charged in a domestic terror plot to kidnap Whitmer and overthrow the government.”
