Those Are Rookie Numbers

An Arizona man’s home was raided because he threatened to kill FBI agents. The media is all in an uproar because he had 5,000 rounds of ammo, an AR15, body armor, and six loaded magazines in his house. He also had a loaded handgun in his car.

That’s what I like to refer to as a “starter kit.” I have more than 5,000 rounds of just .22 LR, not to mention 12 gauge, 5.56mm, 7.62mm, .380ACP, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .357 Sig, 9mm, .45ACP, .32 ACP, or .40S&W. I have a two safe system here. One safe is filled with “cold” firearms. That’s where I store the guns that are unloaded. The other safe is the “hot” safe, and that is where I store my EDC firearms, as well as a loaded 12 gauge, a loaded AR, a set of electronic ears, a few spare, loaded magazines, and a ballistic vest.

I think that most, if not all, of my readers would more than exceed the NBC Pearl Clutching story above. So what was his crime?

in August of last year, Tomasi posted: [to a social media website] “Shoot the FBI first ask questions later. They are terrorists that deserve nothing but to be shot on site.” He also warned that FBI officers who “have a problem with that come to my house and see what happens.”

They also claim that he posted about wanting to torture a former federal official “to death,” subject a U.S. congresswoman to “the horror of a violent rape,” and executing a U.S. congressman. He didn’t name a specific official or lawmaker, according to the story.

I’m hard pressed to see the crime here. He didn’t name a specific lawmaker or official. I don’t see where that is a threat, since he didn’t specifically name someone. There must be more to this that isn’t being reported.
