"Unstable"?

You do know that the media loves to grab the worst, most disheveled picture of people they can find; correct?

I am sure one could find pictures of you when you were just waking up that would look similar.

To pretend as if you can assess his mental health from one picture is to fall astray of logic.


One might think that his posting a list of elected officials he wished to see dead to his personal Facebook account adds a lot of merit to the idea that he was both dangerous and unstable. Not to mention tremendously freaking stupid. And, I ask myself, should a man who has demonstrated himself to be a) mentally unstable, b) dangerous and c) tremendously, almost cartoonishly stupid have firearms in his possession, even an old Nagant a lever-action rifle. Invariably, my answer to that question is a resounding # NO.

And for the record, to preempt any limp-wristed sissy librul talk from the NRA types, I'm a gun owner. I hunt, I target shoot, all that. But I don't pleasure myself thinking about my guns, so said NRA types might have me there.

The m107 can fire armor-piercing incendiary m8 rounds.

The round cannot pierce an Abrams, but foreign forces usually don't own them.

We can all sit here and argue semantics, what he may or may not have said or any imagined context. The simple fact that he posted such a thing on his personal Facebook account demonstrates to me that he's simply too stupid to own firearms.

But in terms of protecting elected officials from kooks, this action really isn't going to do squat. That's because anybody with the ability and the wherewithal to pull off such a thing are not going to run around blabbing about it, not even on the internet, and especially not on #ing Facebook.

That's why I always get such a kick when loons pop up on ATS saying "Hang the traitors!" and calling for armed rebellion against the federal government. It's all juvenile bluster, which amuses me.

There are two kinds of people in this world all talk and the ones you never see coming.

The latter are the ones they should be worrying about as the guy in the op was arrested without incident.

Do first amendment rights extend to posting alleged threats to freaking Facebook of all places? I'd like to see what he posted, but the snippets provided in the admittedly sensationalist article paints a rather damning picture.

You know damn well that there's a limit to right to free speech. If you post on the internet saying "I wanna kill a, b, x and y" then those are terroristic threats and should be dealt with.

In what way it is an issue of politics? Are you suggesting that if he had posted a list of Republican/Tea Party figures/Koch brothers he would like to kill then the President would have personally presented him with a metal and certificate?

A kook is a kook, regardless of political ideology.

I don't care what the guy said the fact is the land lady went in when he wasn't there and illegally searched his property says everything to me.

Then ratted to the police.

Some people like to think there is just like they think their is a limit to 2nd amendment rights this country use to be about getting arrested for actions now they get arrested for mere words.

That is mighty fascist.

I am with you on this neo. Whos to say what else the "land lady" did while there at his place when he wasn't present. This if for nothing else is why I could never ever rent.

A 50bmg AP round is able to penetrate 1.8 inches of soft steel at almost point blank range.
At a thousand yards, that goes down to 5/8 thick soft steel.

Even the little defenseless Iraqi type 69 tank has an armor thickness of 8 inches worth of hard steel.

And at this point, we don’t even know what the words are yet.
Besides a few carefully selected phrases that have no context.

I wonder if they will now start cracking down on people that say they will resist government tyranny, by saying that they are “making threats”?

i dont see why anything to do with guns always turns to "oh my, the government are soooo against us!"

get a grip ffs, if he had posted a hitlist of your family members you would be all for getting him locked up. not posting stupid replys about how a 50 cal gun cant damage a tank. yeah but it'll blow a hole the size of a football in you.

Why are those called tank busters?


They can bust open a good-sized fish tank with good shot placement.
