    You think what might have happened if he wasn't caught.

    The family restaraunt is walking distance from the community college where I work at night. This one really hits home.

    Can someone summarize? Firewalls keep me out of the article.

    A 20 year old made threats on the internet to "recreate v. tech". When the cops raided his home they found 13 high powered weapons, including AK37's, with over 5000 rounds of ammo (including armor piercing and ammo intended to take down aircraft). This all happened in my hometown.

    STG, no, there's another chinese place, also in walking distance that we prefer..since it's a buffet...

    And, in Palm Beach County this week, a 21 year old man got on a school bus and rode to the school - all the while telling kids he was going to blow up the bus. Then he tried to get on again the following day.

    What are these kids hoping to gain by doing this? The media attention? Don't they realize that it doesn't really last that long?

    Wow. We really need to do something to help prevent this from occuring. He was cought and will hopefully be watched, but the article said he will get his guns and ammo back because it wasn't illegal for him to have it. He is obviously in need of help.

    According to my neighbor who's a cop, yes, he will get the guns and ammo back, but he'llbe watched very closely by both homestead and metro dade police.

    Sweet Mary! That one sent shivers down my spine! And people look at me funny when I state that I am FOR gun control, at least of things like automatic weaponry and ARMOR PIERCING AMMUNITION! Honestly, what positive, law-abiding activity does a person have in mind when they buy that &$#)&*$?

    pw...how do you think I felt. Omg...this is my home, I work for the nearest college. I said a prayer of thanks to the unknown person on that discussion board that called the local cops.

    All I can add to the conversation now is "Thank God they prevented it!"
