Glenn Winningham Fearn of Arizona Accused of Trying to Smuggle Weapons Into Canada

Glenn Winningham; house of Fearn
Glenn Winningham Fearn, a sovereign-citizen nut from Arizona and Texas, has been accused by Canadian authorities of trying to smuggle banned weapons across the international border.

Fearn, who in his many civil court filings over the years refers to himself as "Glenn Winningham; house of Fearn," was caught on October 11 at the Coutts crossing just north of Sweetgrass, Montana. Fearn's illegal stash, (see picture below), resembles the legal contents of a typical Arizonans' hobby cabinet: Several high-capacity magazines for semi-auto rifles, a blowgun and a couple of knives. But in the gun-less utopia of Canada, apparently, those items aren't allowed.


Canadian news services are reporting today that Fearn's being slapped with nine criminal charges and his scheduled to appear before the Lethbridge Provincial Court on November 19th.

On his Facebook site, Fearn refers to himself as a "hacktivist" and "political enthusiast," and he links to a couple of sites promoting the "sovereignty" movement. He lists Raymond, Alberta, as his hometown, says he lives in Azle, Texas. However, he put a Casa Grande address on civil and traffic-court documents in recent years. He's the kind of guy who, in 2008, thought it necessary to file a lawsuit against the Queen of England, IRS, Mormon Church and the state of Arizona because of perceived wrongs.

No doubt, as he sits in a Canadian jail cell, he's thinking about the outrageous injustice of it all.

Mr. Stern.... another believer of the narrative... I hope Glenn sues YOU for your slander, calling him a nut.

To whoever wrote this article.  You need to do your job.  Research what you are talking about before you call someone a nut.  This man knows what he is talking about.  Maybe if you researched what he is talking about you would understand.  There is no such thing as a sovereign-citizen.  You are either one or the other.  Have you even checked the outcome of his case?  Probably not because you seem more into slamming him.  Do your job right or find another profession cause to be a reporter you don't research very well.

Those are some pretty dangerous looking magazines.  I imagine if you dropped one of them they could do some real damage.

Probably get the same result smuggling them into California, where restricting guns has resulted in no deaths from guns in at least the last 17 seconds.

RAY? WTF? "Fearn's illegal stash, resembles the legal contents of a typical Arizonans' hobby cabinet: Several high-capacity magazines for semi-auto rifles, a blowgun and a couple of knives. But in the gun-less utopia of Canada, apparently, those items aren't allowed."

Canada has plenty of guns and fewer murders.  But if they don't let this crap in maybe they are on to something. 

It aint about freedom because Canadians have all the freedom we do and probably more.

What is most amazing about 99% of these idiots... you look at them cross eyed and they get scared - they are wannabe's who are more of a danger to themselves and the 'innocents' around them, then the someone with a functioning nuke...

Well, heck, it looks that this sovereign citizen will be spending some quality time in a sovereign Canadian lockup. Guns sure aren't the kind of problem north of the border that they are here. I'm glad the Canadian border guards nailed this clown.

@ladytechindustries LOL you make me laugh! It is obvious that it is YOU who has not done any research. This guy is 100% nuts and should be on medication. Spend some time and read the court case like I did. Since you won't do any research, I will help you out. Go to http://www.albertacourts.ab.ca/jdb_new/public/qb/2003-NewTemplate/qb/Civil/2014/2014abqb0114.pdf and read the case. Look at what this idiot says. He wasted valuable court time by submitting his ridiculous arguments. If you think this guy is sane, YOU need to get some help too.

I knew I wouldn't have to wait too long for some idiot to suggest that this guy is somehow "typical", rather than being out there on the far fringe of the population.

They have plenty of guns, but fewer murders because their society is structured differently.  There's no relationship between size of magazine and number of murders.

The FBI says that the number of gun crimes involving more than 4 shots is insignificantly small.

@eric.nelson745 True that. Canada does not suffer these "sovereign citizen" wingnut types gladly. He'll be going to prison for a long time. As he should.

@valleynative @dennis20 So what you are saying is our gun culture is responsible for our high number of gun related murders (higher than any Nation) ? I agree.  I've been saying that for some time now. 

But good luck telling anyone  that Jerrod Luaghner. the Colorado Theater shootings, Sandy Hook all did it with only 4 bullets.  Limited clip capacity would've saved lives in all situations. But these shootings don't matter to you do they?

@truthseekeraz @valleynative  

No, they don't really, at all.  Anybody with any sense can tell that this lunatic is out there pretty much on his own.  If you're so blindly biased that you can't see that, then you're what we call a "bigot".

@valleynative @dennis20  

So mass murders are insignificant? 

Tell that to the parents of Sandy Hook.  

You are losing your own argument.

@dennis20 @valleynative  

No, genius, I'm saying our culture of violence is responsible for our high amount of violence, only some of which involves guns.

The very, very few murders that involve more than 4 shots are statistically insignificant.  If you don't understand that concept, then you're not really qualified to participate in the discussion.
