    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Tribune News Service) – A U.S. airman assigned to Kirtland Air Force Base is in federal custody after military investigators searching his KAFB residence found a cache of 17 firearms, two silencers, large amounts of ammunition, bomb-making instructions and photos of rifle magazines with the names of mass shooters written on them.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted a package addressed to Justice at the international postal station at John F. Kennedy airport in New York City. Agents opened the package because the Chinese company that sent it was known to ship silencers into the U.S. illegally.

    Agents found information that Justice had placed orders with Chinese vendors of shipping firearm-related devices like the silencer in the past.

    The specific silencer agents found was sold under the name of “Inline Filter” with the intent to disguise it as an automotive part.

    Once they found the silencer, agents notified Air Force Office of Special Investigation agents who questioned Justice and searched his residence on the base. The search was carried out under military rules based on authority granted by Col. David Miller, Commander, 377th Air Base Wing.
    Hmmmmm............

    Not smart.

    "Bomb-making instructions" ... "Investigators also found instructions on making “Molotov” cocktails and other explosive devices."

    Yeah, those Molotov cocktails are complex devices requiring instructions.

    In any case, he is in deep doo-doo. Pretty hard to defend his actions on many levels.

    There is a lot missing from that story, was he married and living n base housing. If so he may store weapons in his residence but they must be registered with Security Forces and there would be a record. If he was single and living in the barracks his weapons must still be registered but must be stored in the armory and I am certain they would not allow the storage of “bomb making” materials.

    I was told from several others that some SP's would go in and take someones weapon out of the armory and use it. It would be returned but they would not clean it, not to mention the fact they took it without the owners permission. I had a friend in base housing that kept mine for me and I could come by and pick it up whenever I wanted as I lived in the barracks.

    So no more empty bottles and old underwear? I'd be in big trouble too!

    That's always the story, but I never knew anyone who knew anyone that actually had it happen. Know what I mean? That would be cause for an SP to be in deep Doo himself. I'm sure there would be investigations if that were a real problem.

    Every time I read stories like this, I think about how my google history coupled with other items in my home that I can legally have, could be used to write a similar story. Kind of a scary thought.
    We get the government we deserve.

    A TSgt and several SSgt's told me about this so it sounded legit to this A1C at the time.
