    Lock him up, throw away the key.

    Re: Another nut...

    47 firearms, valued at over $100,000. So, now they're "valuing" guns like they would if the weapons were the same as illegal drugs?

    Was that "street value"?

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    This morning's paper says the police report the threat was not serious. The weapons were mostly collectables.

    "Concealed"? I don't get it. Was he supposed to "open store" them?

    Well, I don't threaten people. I see that as an unnecessary warning.

    But I do "conceal dozens of firearms & thousands of rounds of ammunition" in my home, valued (according to my insurance policy) well in excess of...the cost to insure them.

    Owning guns doesn't make you crazy. Threatening people at an Elementary School? Yep!

    Unsurprising that having a firearm in a home is treated as "concealment." Plays better to the audience.

    Doesn't justify credible threats against innocents, though.

    Bad dog. Can't be saying such things, if you want to be taken as an upstanding person. Do that, and they'll take you as a felon and charge you. Merry Christmas, pal.

    We "conceal" our guns in a locked gun safe.

    Alert the media!

    Hidden behind the walls of his home! What kind of monster is he? Probably has a concealed toaster in there somewhere too!
