Men’s rights activist attorney shot and killed outside home in San Bernardino County

An attorney who rose to prominence in the men’s rights movement was shot and killed at his mountain home on Saturday, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
Detectives are investigating the death of 52-year-old Marc Angelucci as a homicide.
County deputies responded to reports of a shooing around 4 p.m. Saturday on Glenwood Drive in Cedarpines Park, an unincorporated mountain community northwest of Crestline.
They found Angelucci “responsive and suffering from apparent gunshot wounds,” according to a press release. He died at the scene.
Angelucci was the vice president and board member of the National Coalition for Men. He was the longtime president of the group’s Los Angeles chapter, which he founded.
“Marc was an unbelievably generous man, living on a shoestring despite some personal health challenges so he could donate many millions of dollars of his time to mostly voluntary legal work on behalf of men’s rights and the genuine gender equality that is so badly needed in this country and this world,” said a statement from NCFM.
The group, which said Angelucci was killed at his home, said Angelucci had recently won an equal protection case against the Selective Service Administration overturning male-only draft registration. He previously won a case in California, Woods. V. Horton, that held it is unconstitutional to exclude male victims of domestic violence from state funding for victim services.
He attended the University of California at Berkeley and went to law school at UCLA School of Law. In his career as an activist, he appeared on television shows like Phil Donahue and Dr. Phil, and he also appeared in “The Red Pill,” a documentary from 2016 about the men’s rights movement.
Ronda Kennedy, a Republican candidate for congress in the 26th congressional district that represents parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, tweeted Sunday that Angelucci was her co-counsel on two cases.
