LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Police found a loaded assault rifle with magazines rigged to allow 60 shots to be fired in quick succession, along with 15 pounds of chemicals mixed and ready to explode in the car of an Indiana man who said he was headed to a gay pride event, authorities revealed Tuesday.
James Wesley Howell, 20, of Charlestown, also had two other loaded rifles, ammunition, a stun gun, a buck knife and a security badge when he was arrested early Sunday in Santa Monica, they said. [snip] ... there was an assault rifle in his car's passenger seat and 15 pounds of "Shoc-Shot," two chemicals that explode when mixed and shot. The assault rifle was loaded with a 30-round magazine, which had another inverted 30-round magazine taped to it, according to police.
Deputy District Attorney Sean Carney said gun enthusiasts don't mix Shoc-Shot until it's ready to be used, as federal regulations require, and the amount that Howell had "far exceeds any amount that would reasonably be used."
Howell's attorney, Pamela Jones, told the judge there was no evidence Howell planned to detonate the chemicals. She said a black hood found in his car was "just a clothing item,"

Probably 60 rounds per second if he’s that clever. Wait, is that the manure truck I hear backing up?
Sounds like he had just made a black market sale of rifles in Cali and didn’t use all his tannerite or something.
Does that mean he duct taped them together?
Have to love the way defense lawyers come up with the most ridiculous arguments. A black hood a cleaning cloth? Really lady?
security badge mentioned again in AP article ping
APPLIED STICK TAPE:
Big friggin’ deal..!
Yeah, he was a KOOK.
RIGGED magazines, ooooooh, scarrrrrrrry....!
Sounds like the WH staged shooting squad found another winnah to manipulate off of the psychotic prescription drug list to commit mass murders with some guns.
Yes it does.
The assault rifle was loaded with a 30-round magazine, which had another inverted 30-round magazine taped to it, according to police.
No one ever thought of that before.
Obama should demand more tape control laws!
They’re really, REALLY piling on here cuz they want to give the impression of COMPETENCE on the part of the authorities.
And THAT is cuz they know just HOW BADLY they screwed up in Orlando.
I don’t like this idiotic perp, but rest assured they’re going to term him into the DEVIL because he’s being made to serve a purpose.
They guy is gay though. He had a previous charge of pointing a gun at his boyfriend.
Ban duck tape!
Be kind to our web-footed friends,
For they could be somebody’s mother.
Yup. Sure sign of a terrorist.
...The assault rifle was loaded with a 30-round magazine, which had another inverted 30-round magazine taped to it, according to police.
No one ever thought of that before...
If he had a third taped to it it would be 90 rounds if he didn’t fumble the magazine changes.
I will lay $100 that all the mass shootings will subside once Obama, ValJar, and Hillary are gone. Way lower if Soros ceases to exist. Hunting him down and removing him from the face of the earth would be one of my top priorities if I were elected to office. He causes way too many problems with his psychological manipultions and social experimention with world economies and their cultures.
I think you mean “rigged clips”. Either that or our president is a dumbass. Never mind.
