    I'm positive that there is no 50 BMG upper for an AR15,there is a 50 Beowulf upper,I have thousands of rounds some of them hollowpoints and what some newspapers would classify as enough firearms to outfit a third world country.that doesn't make me guilty of anything,I might be wrong but I almost bet he was dishonorably discharged and may be grounds for denial of gun ownership since it is a question on the ATF 4473 firearms purchase form

    Correct me if I am wrong but this just shows you how the media has to embellish the facts. I still am trying to figure out how you can alter a Bushmaster to fire the .50 round, however it would be awesome. When they do figure out the platform I will be the first in line to buy one.
    The officers noticed? He must have been printing?
    Never mind the .50 cal conversation, I wanna know how he concealed an AR-15?
    He must have had one heck of a custom holster

    It amazes me how stupid people continue to do stupid things and get caught. If this guy had half a brain, and played it cool, he would have done a lot of damage. But no, he acts stupid at a convienence store and gets caught. Thank GOD for stupidity.

    I stand corrected

    Thanks for the humility

    Last but least thanks for not tossing me under the bus , but the media still bites !

    This forum really is worth the time I spend on it and the headaches I get from my wife when I tell her what I am doing.

    There are maybe a dozen different manufactures. I have never even seen one in person. I think most of the .50 BMG barrels are enormous! I don't see how one can conceal it under their coat.


    edit: oh I forgot about the .50 bewolf or even the handgun rounds:) That would do it.

    I'd bet that's what it was. NJ has been demonizing the .50BMG for a while. You know, 'cause a rifle in .50BMG can shoot down airliners. They haven't banned it yet, but they want to (and this idiot wannabe terrorist isn't going to help the image), so I'm sure their media just pounced on the ".50".

    We are all just corks bobbing in the sea of life.

    National news has picked up on this. It made yahoo's home page and now apparently, he had a "grenade launcher".

    There is irony in that everything he has been arrested for is legal in many states (albeit not NJ), but when you put it together, it just doesn't smell right.

    A grenade launcher? maybe a 37mm flare launcher...

    Granted, this guy is probably prohibited from owning a firearm, but so far, all they have him for is multiple weapons possession charges.....and in NJ, you or I could be charged with the same thing (if we were stupid enough to drive through NJ with our firearms).

    Hopefully, they will uncover something more--because this guy ain't right in the head. Why would he have a keffiyeh?

    FBI finds no terrorism link to Virginia man with weapons cache in N.J. motel room

    However....

    Virginia man had weapons cache, grenade launcher stashed in N.J. hotel room | New Jersey Real-Time News - - NJ.com

    Virginia man had weapons cache, grenade launcher stashed in N.J. hotel room
    By Star-Ledger Staff

    January 25, 2010, 9:45PM

    Lloyd Woodson, 43, of Reston, Va., today was charged with multiple offenses, including second-degree unlawful weapons possession and fourth-degree possession of prohibited weapons after police found him armed and a battery of weapons in his room at the Red Mill Inn in Branchburg.

    BRANCHBURG -- A Virginia man who once spent eight years on the run from naval investigators was arrested in Somerset County early today with a trove of high-powered weapons, including a grenade-launcher and two assault rifles, along with maps of a U.S. military base and a civilian neighborhood, authorities said.

    The federal government’s Joint Terrorism Task Force quickly joined the investigation into Lloyd R. Woodson, 43, who had been staying at a Branchburg motel since last week. Woodson, whose last known address was in Reston, Va., was wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying one of the assault rifles — customized to shoot .50-caliber rounds — when police arrested him after a chase and a scuffle in a local trailer park.

    Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest declined to speculate about Woodson’s intentions but remarked on the suspect’s arsenal, which included hundreds of rounds of ammunition, some of them hollow-point bullets, and a night-vision scope.

    "In our experience, for private citizens to have this type of armament is quite unusual in Somerset County," Forrest said. "If you’re over in Afghanistan, it wouldn’t be rare."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    UPDATE: FBI finds no terrorism link to Virginia man with weapons cache in N.J. motel room
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mixed in among Woodson’s belongings, the prosecutor said, was a Middle Eastern, red-and-white traditional headdress.

    Forrest said his office reached out to the Joint Terrorism Task Force — a partnership of federal, state and local agencies administered by the Department of Justice — and that the agency had assigned an investigator from the FBI and another from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

    Calls placed to the task force and to the FBI in Newark late this afternoon were not immediately returned.

    Forrest, citing security risks, declined to identify the military base or the civilian community depicted on Woodson’s maps. He said the civilian neighborhood was not in New Jersey.

    Investigators, meanwhile, were seeking to learn more about Woodson, who was charged with multiple weapons counts, resisting arrest and other charges. He remained at the Somerset County Jail last night.

    A U.S. Navy spokesman, Lt. Justin Cole, said Woodson joined the service in February 1988 and served aboard the USS Orion, a submarine tender, before deserting in April 1989. It would be eight years before he was returned to Navy custody, Cole said. A month later, in August 1997, Woodson was discharged.

    It remained unclear last night whether he was passing through New Jersey or settling in for a longer period. He took a room last week at the Red Mill Inn, on Route 22. Shortly before 4 a.m. today, he was in a Quick Chek convenience store on Route 28 when someone in the store called police, saying Woodson had been acting suspiciously.

    Branchburg Patrolman Steven Cronce, the first officer to arrive, began to question Woodson and noted he was "extremely nervous," the prosecutor said. Cronce also noticed a bulge in the front of Woodson’s green, military-style jacket, Forrest said.

    When the officer continued to question Woodson, the suspect ran from the store and into the nearby Regency Trailer Park on Route 22, where officers found him. Forrest said Woodson fought with the officers, who subdued him with pepper spray. Under his coat was a ballistic vest with a reinforced steel plate and the customized assault rifle, whose ammunition is typically used in heavy weapons mounted on military vehicles.

    They found a second assault rifle, a second vest, the grenade-launcher, ammunition, night scope, maps and a police scanner in Woodson’s room at the Red Mill Inn, where manager Hemant Desai said he’d seen no hint of trouble during the suspect’s stay.

    On Saturday night, Desai said, he was working the evening shift and heard the sound of a CB or a radio coming from Woodson’s room. The lights were off, but Desai could see the faint glow of the television.

    "I’m glad I didn’t open the door," said Desai, who has a master key to all units.

    He said his colleague had gone into Woodson’s room Sunday morning and didn’t see any weapons.

    Yeah and they (Feds) didn't find anything odd about the underwear bomber either so I find no comfort whatever in their findings.

    In their defense, they actually did know about him and suspected his plans. TSA just let him on anyway.
