The real point here is the fact that he had intentions of killing others. He made that clear by trying to recruit at least one other and no doubt more could he have succeeded. Yet you think this is right??? Boy what is this world coming to???
But the cops are trying to make it look much much worse, and the press is going along trying to scare everybody.
Photoshoots of airsoft guns and dark references to “books about bombmaking” are intended as propaganda to scare us and make us demand or accept more government control, more oversight. Holy cats, one of the weapons has a LASER SIGHT!
If I got raided right now they’d find videos of Waco and 9-11, Davis’s book The Chemisry of Powders and Explosives, an airsoft gun or two, smokeless powder, and flammable liquids, and cookies from FreeRepublic as well as www.pipebombnews on my laptop. Plus I have lots of “survivalist” type food stored and a supply of water (earthquake country here). What can you figure out about my intentions from that? The press would have a field day with all that, I think.
I don’t think we’ll get a clear picture of what really went on and won’t know what the actual threat was, because there are too many political hot buttons to expect straight reporting from MSM.
I do apologize for my sarcastic, snarky comment. I was trying to point out that it is OK to own such books. AC and even worse (Ragnar whatisname and dope synthesis books) can be found in public libraries.
