Have they said whether he bought the firearms legally or not? I can’t remember if I heard that? Also do they know when he bought them? Was it before or after that court order??

Weird presser wasn’t it?

It’s almost as if VT has a deal with NBC to give no info out until “NBC reports on it tonight”, as he said.

And the reporters in the room are mad.

Perhaps because they were still investigating, and didn't want to make his name public yet.

Officials searched the home in Centreville that night, and they had to get a court order first.

I read (here) that they were both legal purchases and that one was bought about a month ago and the other recent.

"A court order from 2005 states that Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui was declared mentally ill and "an imminent danger to others."

Yes, but we still need more restrictions on guns. ///sarcasm off

After the first killing, police picked up the first girl victim’s boyfriend, thinking he was the perp. He was the “person of interest” until gunfire started in the engineering building.

And Korean, like Chinese, is oriental. Not PC, but hard for caucasians to differentiate.

Based upon the McBeef screenplay, his writing ability seems on par with NBC standards.

That play is really very funny, if you read it aloud with a different hysterical screaming bad Asian accents for each character.

This guy on MSNBC said he probably chose NBC because “they are the premier network....or would be the network to get the story out to the most people”...

Boy is he pimping for a raise!! LOL

NBC must be held accountable (lol)

When did they receive it?

Why weren’t the authorities advised?

Whey did they withold evidence?

LOL, this is too easy.

He bought the guns legally, one month apart, which is as soon as he could under Virginia law (the .22 on 9 February, the 9mm on 9 March). But...IF that CNN report is correct, and a judge found him mentally ill (or incompetent?), then that changes things. From what other FReepers have posted, the ATF form has a question on it to the effect of “Have you ever been found mentally incompetent or been committed to an institution?” If that CNN report is right, then he must’ve lied on that form and the background check missed it somehow. But that’s a big “if.”

The only legislation that will come of this will be tougher reporting and checking for mental health disqualification. Of course, someone who checks in to a facility feeling depressed should not be denied the right to self-defense, but might need to get a doctor to sign off before getting off the do-not-sell-list.

Of course, under Rudy or Hillary, they will define us “gun-nuts” as mentally ill, so they can stop us or anyone from buying a gun (remember Catch-22?)

from NATIONAL TREASURE -—

Yes, Agent Hendricks?
You have something?

Um...

- This isn’t a day for “Um...”

- We got a tip several days ago
that someone was going to steal
the Declaration of Independence.

Do we have a name on the tipster?

There was no file opened.
We didn’t find the information credible.

How about now?
