Local police arrested a man with a large Cache of weapons in his home. The weapons were more powerful than the typical home arsenal and appeared
ready for use. Laureno had made threats to local government agencies and officials said there was no early evidence linking this to a terrorist
Inside Laureno's home, police found a fully loaded .50 caliber anti-aircraft weapon that was pointed right out at the street through a window.
The weapon, which is over five feet long and weighs almost 130 pounds, is capable of blasting out between 400 and 550 rounds a minute and accurately
hitting a target 2,500 yards away.
The weapon is meant to bring down enemy aircraft.
Next to that weapon was another .50 caliber machine gun that was also ready to fire.

While it is quite possible this was just a local drug dealer preparing for a police standoff, we cannot be too sure. With the recent tape saying
there will be blood flowing in the streets, this certainly is a troubling story.
Look at the size of the ammo compared to an ordinary weapon. And to think, this weapon is capable of firing over 400 rounds a minute. With Halloween
just around the corner and kids and parents lining the streets, how many of these gunners around the country would it take to cause panic?
