Floyd Corkins, shooter with Chick-fil-a wrappers and ammo in backpack, pleads guilty to terrorism, got plan from ‘Hate Group’ outers

The man who opened fire inside the headquarters of the Family Research Center last August pleaded guilty today to committing an act of terrorism.

Floyd CorkinsFloyd Lee Corkins II admitted that he considered bombing the building of the pro-life and pro-family organization before deciding to shoot as many employees as possible.

He changed his plea as part of the bargain with prosecutors.

In a videotaped confession, the 28-year-old homosexual activist said he intended to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” He hoped the atrocity would “make a statement against the people who work in that building…and with their stance against gay rights and [for] Chick-fil-A.”

Corkins said he used the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to identify a list of “hate groups,” which he carried with him. If he survived, officials said he hoped to target several other pro-life, pro-family organizations, although they did not release the list.

“Were it not for the heroic guard who tackled Floyd Corkins, he could have succeeded in perpetrating a mass killing spree in the nation’s capital,” said U.S. Attorney Ron Machen.

Corkins entered the facility carrying a backpack which was full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches and a box of ammunition when he said “I don’t like your politics” and shot the security guard.

FRC President Tony Perkins said the case vindicated his charge that the SPLC had poured rhetorical gasoline on the fire of the culture wars, which ended in this shooting.

“The Southern Poverty Law Center can no longer say that it is not a source for those bent on committing acts of violence,” said Perkins. “Only by ending its hate labeling practices will the SPLC send a message that it no longer wishes to be a source for those who would commit acts of violence that are only designed to intimidate and silence Christians and others who support natural marriage and traditional morality.”
