Massachusetts man stockpiled weapons, explosives - planned attacks on police, Muslims, Obama

Post by Ben Reilly on Tue Sep 06, 2016 11:13 pm

A Massachusetts man who allegedly planned attacks on police, Muslims and President Barack Obama has been arrested. The FBI raided his home to find a trove of weapons, ammunition and chemicals for hand-made explosives.
The man, identified as 40-year-old Joseph Gargiulo of Holliston, located roughly 30 miles west of Boston, was arrested over the weekend.

Federal investigators busted into Garguilo’s home on Saturday, a month after learning of his suspected plans to “plant a bomb in police station…and kill as many homeland security officers as he can before they kill him.”

The FBI was informed at the end of July that Garguilo obtained parts to make an AR-15 rifle while also in possession of a stockpile of other weapons, including Tasers, mace guns, hunting knives and thermite, an incendiary.

The agents found and seized parts that would let the suspect assemble an AR-15 rifle as well as ammunition for it. There were also nine-millimeter ammunition, chemicals that could be used for hand-made incendiary or explosive compounds, and handwritten notes, in which he threatened violent attacks against Muslims.

“In recent days, the FBI learned that Garguilo had stated that he wanted to attack a mosque and/or kill President Obama,” the FBI said in a press release Monday.

To agents’ knowledge, the suspect allegedly said he wanted to “chain a mosque closed and burn it down,” but mentioned no specific mosque or time for this attack.

Gargiulo has allegedly been stockpiling his arsenal despite being under an active restraining order that banned him from possessing firearms and ammunition due to a “substantial likelihood of immediate danger of abuse.”

The suspect is now charged in a criminal complaint with being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition, the FBI said. He is facing a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.

Sounds like he was already known to police and a known criminal/mental case as article said he was banned from owning firearms etc...


But if all the rest of what is claimed is true... why has he only been charged for illegal possession of some ammunition...?


"...The suspect is now charged in a criminal complaint with being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition, the FBI said..."

I thought the sentence was light, too -- I'm fairly certain we have nonviolent offenders serving longer sentences than that.

Maybe the sentence is only based upon his illegal weapons possession and not on what he intended to do with them.

How could they not, really? Sane people don't do things like this.

All the rest of the story is scattered with vague assertions of 'alleged' occurances...


Seems surprising that if any of it is true if he is only bring charged with being illegally in position of a few bullets...

Wow, another unhinged right-winger!

Looking at this from the jaundiced eye of a lawyer, they haven't got much of a case:

OP wrote:The agents found and seized parts that would let the suspect assemble an AR-15 rifle as well as ammunition for it.

A box full of parts from an AK-47?  Ammunition with no firearms?  A can of camping Sterno?  Sounds like a misdemeanor violation of a court restraining order.  The threats on the life of the president could amount to something, but other than that this complaint is more words than substance.  The FBI calling it a "trove of weapons" is a bit of a stretch...and that appears to be the sum and substance of their complaint...hyperbolic adjectives and a lot of harsh language!  Rolling Eyes

Which is why he is only charged with illegal possession of a few bullets... a non story whipped up into something it's not.
