Quoted text from my post "how to catch a sniper" 10/15/2002....
QUOTE "I would think that someone like this would be relatively easy to close in on.
This guy was trained somewhere. He's proffesional and to confident to have never done this before.
He must use special equipment that he purchased somewhere.
My guess is that he's using an AR15. My reasoning? They sell some pretty insane customized AR15 varmint guns that are scary in accuracy. Flash suppressors which are illegal now were readilly available. If he's ever cornered he's got a fully automatic asault weapon to outgun police with.
There are few AR15 customizers. Pay a visit to every person on the customizers lists." END QUOTE
Well it turns out this guy was using a Bushmaster XM-15 Rifle A-3. They traced this guy through the purchase of the weapon.
He was a military trained expert marksman.
You guys have to give me credit for calling this......

Reports I see indicate that he was caught by a fingerprint and shooting his mouth off a bit about stuff that wasn't released. But then I got this off Fox News and they aren't really all that interested in facts from what I have seen.
But in all honesty Jetpilot, I see a few Generalisations which are correct from you but the other facts no where close
Maybe you could get a show like Crossing over with John Edwards

Too bad you, about another million people, and about every news station shared your theory... I bet a lot of other a.net members thought the same way you did... don't take credit for something like this...

"Anyone think he was a Muslim?"
I knew this would happen. The piece of sh*t has his last name "Muhammad." That's all the Muslims need, a crazy ass wacko, as if the publicity isn't bad enough. He was Nation of Islam, too. Major differences.

I believe you take the bar for being the stupid one for thinking you are special because you called what a million others did. I also called that he bought the gun as opposed to finding it or stealing it.

How many people have folding stocks killed?
Not one. Existing ones where also not required to be removed from rifles, that is one of the reasons you can double the price of a Post-ban rifle to get an approximation of a pre-ban price.
How many drive by bayonetings have there been???
I don't know, All I know is that my SKS had the bayonet removed because it was made in China and therefore it was considered an assault weapon. To this day I can get a newly imported Russian or Yugoslavian SKS and it will have the Bayonet still attached. Shoot the Yugo's don't even bother to remove the hardware from theirs since they are military surplus new-old stock.
How many crimes has the removal of the Bayonet on my SKS prevented? Not one. I still have the bayonet attach hardware on my 1903A3 and my Enfield SMLE MKIII. I have the feeling that removing that hardware isn't going to prevent any crimes either. BTW, both of those weapons have their roots pre-WWI
I don't think any crimes have been prevented with the flash hider anyway, Besides if I wanted the look of a flash suppressor on a rifle I could go ahead and get a "recoil suppressor" which is an almost identical piece of metal, except it helps reduce recoil but it functions simularly.
I don't know of any crimes that were prevented by the folding stock law, they just managed to make it much more difficult to carry a survival weapon in a small aircraft nose compartment or to back away.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
