An Oklahoma City man was arrested after police said he was threatening to “perform a large scale act of violence.”

Oklahoma City Police said they were called to Oakwood Springs medical facility on May 22.

Police said Kirk Brittan admitted to having guns, ammo, and survivalist manuals in his car.

Officers say they searched the car and found an AR-15 style upper receiver, that appeared to fire a golf ball, several hundred rounds of ammo, and copies of the Anarchist Cookbook and a Poor Mans James Bond book.

Those books contain information on how to make homemade explosives and detail firearms training and military-style tactics.

During an interview, police said Brittan admitted to trying to buy a gun to kill politicians but was denied when he made a statement to the seller about using them to kill politicians.

Police also said Brittan claimed he was in possession of at least one additional rifle and pistol and wanted to kill people in a similar fashion to the mass shooting in Buffalo.

According to police, Brittan also said he previously plotted to steal an aircraft and crash it into a building in an attack similar to September 11.

“I believe Kirk Brittan has taken steps to follow through with his plans to execute an act of violence by purchasing firearms accessories, ammunition, and the above-described manual,” police said in a search warrant affidavit.

Police said investigators went through records and found Brittan had a long history of mental health interventions.

Police are looking to search Brittan’s home.
