Well maybe these idiots should profile for the sake of American citizens.
What a BS lie...firewirks stores DONT SELL BLACK POWDER....wtf?
Bait and switch headline...
and the FBI didn’t act against Tsarnaev because....?
I didn’t know fireworks stores sold bulk black powder. Is that true?
Apparently they disassembled a large firework display kit to get the powder. Regardless, where are CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX et al on this? Reading their WH talking points no doubt.
Where’s the FBI or Big Sis? Oh yeah, they are keeping a lookout for Tea Party or Christian extremists.
How did these two ever keep from blowing themselves up? Oh never mind, one of them did!
He purchased fireworks:
According to this other thread:
with link to local NH newspaper he bought large legal(in NH)class A fireworks.
He did not buy black powder.
Well it is obvious to be that MAssachusetts should BAN THE POSSESSION AND USE OF ALL FIREWORKS!!!!! oh wait.............
That's a rather large purchase for someone on public assistance, eh?
He probably used his EBT card.
So he spent $4,000 to buy fireworks? As Rush said, where did these guys get their money? Pricey cars, a trip overseas, etc. And yet, the official government line is that they acted alone.
Yeah, I’ve fireworks and 1 lb. (500 grams) is the maximum limit you can buy in 1 firework in SC. The problem is that unless you get a straight boomer (explosion only, no lightup) the bomb’s going to be way weaker.
I have a good idea what mortar set he bought, too, if it was a Black Cat store.
>>Phantom Fireworks in Seabrook confirmed that Tamerlan Tsarnaev obtained nearly $4,000 worth of mortars at the store in February.
Phantom Fireworks? He got ripped off!
When I was young fireworks were legal and available everywhere in July.
From what what I know, firecrackers, cherry bombs, M80s etc. didn’t use gunpowder. They used aluminum powder plus another chemical, the name of which I won’t mention here. But not black powder.
