John F. Johnson was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for leading a pro-gun group. Johnson pointed a rifle at two federally appointed officers in downtown Louisville.

In May, a federal jury found Johnson guilty of resisting and impeding law enforcement as well as brandishing a firearm in protests over racial justice two years ago. According to court documents and evidence, Johnson pointed an AR-15 platform rifle along with a tactical flashlight at two federally appointed officers who were sitting on a rooftop in downtown Louisville. This alleged incident took place the day before the Kentucky Derby when hundreds marched peacefully to demand justice for Breonna Taylor’s fatal shooting by Louisville police officers.
