Mark Andrew Mazza

Mazza is accused of bringing an unregistered weapon to the Capitol. Laws for carrying a firearm outside of one’s home or business are extremely strict in DC.

Mazza told FBI he was outside the Lower West Archway when the crowd of Trump supporters was pepper sprayed by police. He hid behind a door as this happened, and was smashed behind it due to the pressing of the crowd. During this time, he lost the weapon and reported it stolen to DC police. (Police allege the report was false.)

Mazza believed Antifa was inside the building and attacking police when he arrived. He was concerned about the missing gun because he did not want them to misuse it.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
