    White Supremacist Held on $1 Million Bail for Facebook Threats

    On the list of stupidest all-time things to post online, a plot to commit mass murder ranks near the top. Yet 22-year-old James Gallagher, of Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania, failed to see the flaw in his plan when, via his Facebook page, he announced his intention to shoot up the entirety of nearby Springfield Township.

    In August, the young man, clearly troubled on many levels, used his Facebook profile to post profanity laden messages threatening mass violence. Those messages were brought to the attention of local authorities, who then placed a detective on the case. The detective went undercover online and was able to gain access to Gallagher's profile, which contained not only the threatening messages but several photos of him brandishing heavy firearms, including AK-47 and AR-15 assault rifles.

    The evidence on Facebook was enough to obtain a search warrant for the home of Gallagher, which, according to Philadelphia's KYW News Radio, was found to have been housing a stockpile of guns, ammo, and white supremacist paraphernalia.

    As of this morning, Gallagher was behind bars, on $1 million bail, awaiting trial. Let's hope that terrorists continue to be stupid enough to post their plans online for all to see -- before they actually get around to performing their unspeakable acts.

    Hmmm, I never really considered the AKs or ARs to be "heavy weapons". To my mind, you gotta step into an M60 or a Ma Deuce to cross the line into "heavy" weaponry.

    This isnt good for guns. Once again the media highlighted the fact that he had AK47 and AR 15. It doesnt matter the gun, all they should have said. Was an illegally obtained heavy amount of weapons was found at his home location. These weapons are destroyed and no one was hurt.

    The number of morons in the universe is ever expanding...this guy gives us all a bad name because certain people cannot tell the difference between this guy and a law abiding gun owner.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    Ken;
    You are entirely correct.
    HOWEVER, I'd rather he made the threats publicly and then got caught; instead of just doing the actual deed.

    Also, as someone else mentioned,nuts like him don't help us in our defense of 2nd Amendment rights.
