He successfully sold his ideas to the US military and made a fortune in licensing?

"Antioch policeman injured while making pipe bombs" would be a more interesting story.
 
2012-12-25 09:55:45 AM  
Since this ocurred in Antioch, I'm guessing he was trying to make a hand grenade.

Trout was apparently injured when he dropped a LIT fuse into a bucket filled with a mix that included gunpowder inside a home in the 1400 block of G Street, police said.

Giltric: He killed some white kids and now people think pipebombs should be regulated without realizing they already are?


Oh, come on. If schizophrenic twenty-something white males with gun fetishes lived in urban centers instead of suburbia, they'd be shooting up schools full of black kids. It's nothing personal.

To their credit, urban youth are resourceful - they shoot up their schools perfectly fine by themselves.

He blows up the cable?
 
2012-12-25 10:13:23 AM  
Trout told police that he was making the devices because he liked fireworks and wanted to see them explode.

From up close?
He could have just bought a Glock.

FTA -- "Trout told police that he was making the devices because he liked fireworks and wanted to see them explode."

Probably inside an elementary school classroom or a filled church.

Nice shot, Grant.

Seriously, though, I am very confused. Can you farkers help me by explaining something? I was told that if we outright banned guns in the USA, that crazy mass killers would just turn to pipe bombs and such, which are just as easy to use and kill just as many people as guns so banning guns is pointless. But in this article, it seems as though building pipe bombs maybe isn't as easy and foolproof as going to a gun show and buying a pre-made, hand-held, concealable killing tool no-questions-asked. Can somebody please explain to me why confiscating all guns from the cowardly gun owners wouldn't reduce the killing?

Because if we don't have guns, then the Mexican Drug Cartels will move in and kill us, unless we're customers.

Detail being that he wasn't building a "pipe bomb", he was making improvised fireworks. If you wrap a bunch of gunpowder in paper you get smoke and flame but nothing serious.
Wrap some nails around that... not so much.

/these devices are simple but not safe to make.
/many people do make them even tho they are illegal.
/some guys can become pretty proficient at making bombs and triggers.
/I take it you missed out on the whole Olympic park and Unabomber era.

How are you going to separate and identify the cowardly gun owners from the ones that will shoot you when you show up to confiscate their guns?
