A man who threatened to purchase an assault rifle and kill people at Canaan Public School if his daughter was exposed to “a transgender” has been taken into custody. New Hampshire State Police on Tuesday arrested 36-year-old Shane Gobeil of Canaan, Vt., and charged him with harassment. He is being held in preventative detention and his right to possess firearms was suspended indefinitely under an Extreme Risk Protection Order issued by Essex County (Vt.) Superior Court. Canaan School canceled classes on Tuesday and Wednesday as a precaution. According to court documents, Gobeil made threats captured on video Monday at Solomon’s Store in West Stewartstown, N.H.
