    And he's from Texas. Raise your hand if you saw that coming.

    Do you think if he was from Chicago, it would begin "An Illinois man......". Of course not. Typical media bias.

    And by the way, a LOT more people die in Illinois from gun violence than Texas. And they have laws against guns.

    With that much ammunition I would expect he was gearing up for the apocalypse or something. But I can't think of a reason to do what he did, unless all he wanted was attention and he got that.
    You can refine anything in it's pure form to use for good or evil. This goes for everything, not just materials.

    200 rounds is not a lot of ammunition. I wouldn't go to the range with less than that for any one of my firearms. It's four boxes and consumes very little space in a back pack. Most major ammo retailers routinely sell 250 round boxes in that calibre as well.

    There is now way that article leads with Illionois or Chicago man had he been from there.

    I'm suprised they also didn't say he was a tea party racist gun nut in addition to being from Texas.
    There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

    You might want to check that statistic. I'm pretty sure you're incorrect. Both the number of gun murders and the per 100,000 people gun murders. Texas wins both.

    Five more kids in Chicago died while you typed that. They're dropping like flies.

    So what. You're still wrong.

    And now I know that you will post incorrect information to advance your agenda and then exaggerate in ANOTHER attempt to further your agenda. You partisans are all alike.

    Good on the Secret Service agent who spotted him. Something sounds not quite right about his story--I am suspecting mental illness or very low IQ.
