CBS station WBCS-TV in New York City has learned two high school students were arrested Friday after allegedly plotting to shoot staff and students at a Long Island high school and ignite explosives in the school on the ninth anniversary of the Columbine shootings.
Police obtained the 15-year-old suspect's computer and discovered he had made numerous attempts on the Internet to obtain weapons, including an Uzi and five pounds of explosive powder.
A 15-year-old was unsuccessful at purchasing a submachine gun on the internet? I'm shocked. I mean, what an idiot! Everyone knows you can just drive up to New Hampshire and pick them from trees on the side of the highway.
Of course, the facts of the matter will have little weight in determining how this incident will end up being used by the gungrabber coalition. If they need to twist a story around to serve their political goals, they'll find a way.
Try this on for size...
"We live in a world where 15-year-old boys fostering fantasies of mass murder are just ONE MOUSE CLICK AWAY from purchasing machine guns on the internet. When is Congress going to sever its bloody ties with the NRA and do something about it?"
It would be funny if it wasn't so believeable.
