Okay, call me crazy, if you'd like (I promise it won't offend me
) but could this be another example to be used to implement anti-gun laws? It's strikingly similar to what occurred at the Navy Yard shootings, minus the fact that the plan was not carried out. The news story said that:


The plot leaders decided the pair would "not be able to handle" the killings, which were called "bonus jobs," the indictment states.


However, for someone who was a "sniper instructor" who had "killed a number of people" . . . this story just smells fishy to me. What could have been the cause that stopped them from completing their mission?

While it's possible they may use it to push gun laws, it would be a week argument.




Hunter, a resident of Thailand, was arrested Thursday in Bangkok


Maybe if they were pushing the "ex-military shouldn't have weapons" thing....
