Police Press Confernce In San Berardino

On FoxNews, live.

Three pipe-bombs were bundled together as one (like a clutch of dynamite). They were put on to a remote control car, but the gizmo didn't work. (He wasn't clear if it was the RC car that didn't work, or the ignition for the pipe-bombs.)

The cops fired 380 rounds at them in the pursuit. The terrorists fired 65-75 rounds at the cops.

There were 12 pipe bombs at the house in Redlands.

The handguns were legally purchased (as I guess he had no criminal history) and the AR-15 type weapons (not really AR-15s, but that style) were legally purchased but not by the shooters. So this may be a straw-purchase situation -- which, um, isn't actually a legal purchase, then. They'll be following up to find out who helped this guy get his guns.

California has the strictest gun control laws in the country. AR-15 type weapons can actually be bought, but only in a "California legal" configuration. I think this means, mostly, that the gun's magazine can only hold 10 rounds, and not a more typical 20 or 30. The cop says they do not know yet if these particular guns were California legal, or, as I'm suspecting, straw-purchased by a friend or Online Hybrid Workplace Jihad Consultant and then given to Syed and Tashfeer.

Tashfeer is in the country on a K-1 visa, under a Pakistani passport. A K-1 visa is used to bring over fiancees. This is beginning to smell very much like a scam -- I'm thinking this woman is not merely a fiance who "became radicalized." I'm thinking she was much more central to this plot.
