"ISIS is Comi[ng]:" Utah Student Arrested for Bomb Making, Researching ISIS

JJ Sefton covered this in the morning round-up but I thought I'd post this for the late-wakers, by which I mean myself, mostly.

Doesn't this student know that there are laws against joining ISIS and killing people with bombs?

Doesn't he realize his school is a Bomb Free Zone?

A smoking backpack was discovered in the cafeteria of Pine View High School in St. George, Utah Monday. Police later determined the backpack contained a bomb which could have done significant damage if it had gone off. An unnamed student was arrested and charged with creating a weapon of mass destruction. The same student had recently taken an interest in ISIS....

In addition to finding bomb-making materials, the Associated Press reports authorities also found evidence the student had been "researching" ISIS and was connected to an incident at another high school last month...

Even more harrowing: Some reports say the device might have been a "fully-semi-automatic bomb," possibly equipped with a Thing That Goes Up.

Related: From Truth Revolt, a flashback to a 2016 school shooting where the perp specifically said he chose a Gun Free Zone for his massacre, because it would of course be easier and bloodier.

Quoting from the Washington Post:

"I HAVE TO BEAT ADAM LAZA . . ." he wrote nine days before the Sept. 28, 2016, shooting in a misspelled reference to the Sandy Hook killer, Adam Lanza. "At least 40…"

Two days later, he debated whether he should attack his middle school, from which he'd been expelled, or his elementary school, just up the road. He decided on Townville Elementary because it was closer and had no armed security. Jesse, who considered himself the victim of an unfair world, announced online that he would kill kids he didn’t know and had never met "before they bullie the nobodys."

"Itll be like shooting fish in a barrel."

Here's a brief defense of knowing what the fuck you are talking about: When you propose abridging people's rights by imposing a new Prohibition, it is generally thought wise and good to know what the thing you're proposing to outlaw actually is.

A proponent of outlawing cocaine, for example, should not also seek to outlaw caffeine, on the claim that cocaine is merely a "fully-semi-automatic" version of caffeine. Nor should he talk about banning other "assault powders" such as creatine or citrulline.

Not unless he wishes to be branded a buffoon and ignoramus by people who actually know something about something.

As David Harsanyi concludes: No one is demanding that the ignorant "be silent" (probably with a Speech Silencer that makes speech 99% more deadly).

But it is fair to note that hyperemotional know-nothings shrieking "We must do something, no matter now nonsensical or counterproductive" are hysteric idiots.

Is he trying to Put a Deadly Silencer on my right to be heard?
