You may have heard of Airman Jack Teixeira who was arrested for allegedly obtaining and releasing super-duper secret military information in some gaming community. Some have raised the question how is it possible that a lowly Airman could have access to such important material, but then I remember it is our new Military which was not very smart to begin with and lately they are more into crossdressing officers and electric tanks so leaving a computer server unsecured with a crapload of sensitive info is not beyond the realm of reality.
Now, the government wants this kid bad, so bad indeed that the prosecutors released pictures of an alleged arsenal belonging to Teixeira and that he researched mass killings plus talked shit in the internet.
Here is a photo of the “arsenal” (Don’t laugh just yet.)
I believe the orange tips gives it away:
You can laugh now.
Kinda explains the lack of ammunition in the photo, right? Plastic BBs do not make for thrilling and convincing cases.
The link above is from USA Today, the same one that seriously brought you the chainsaw attachment for the AR 15. That they missed something as subtle as a federal regulation instituted in 1992 is completely understandable.
“But Miguel, what about the misuse of arsenal?” Well hell, anything beyond 2 firearms and 50 rounds of ammunition is an arsenal for the Press. I won’t even ask how many weapons you have within 3 feet right now or the USA Today editors would be giving birth to rabid kittens in the coffee room.

Meanwhile We the People continue to set NICS records… while stupidity rises in the media..
From what I hear, USA Today editorial offices are already full of ‘rabid kittens’.
“Everybody I don’t like owns a deadly arsenal.”
I just read that Jack couldn’t get a MA LTC as he made some sort of threats against his high school. Good thing that he didn’t get security clearance.
Great arsenal, BTW. I’m jealous.
