Wait, GGma Sheila, I don't think the NRA will let an opportunity like this get past them.
I mean, how much must this asses purchases have enriched the coffers of the sponsors of the NRA?
This is the same group that wants to sponsor a rally in Newtown, Conn!!!
Business as usual Ubber Alles!

The NSA has all these resources & goes through ALL our emails, phone calls, etc. But it took counterfeit sports jerseys to get this guy caught Accidentally?!!! This is Exactly what NSA SHOULD be watching for on American soil! Arms & ammunition buying in bulk would make ME suspicious, but Copyright infringement is what the Big Companies are howling about! So WHO are they really "protecting & serving"???

I hope they throw this skid into prison and swallow the key. There's nothing I hate more than animal abusers, racists and white supremists. One more jerk we can do without. Thanks Carrie!

OMG. He is not stable or in his right mind. Thankfully he was caught. I hope he is prosecuted correctly. I can just see how many would have ended up dead and injured. He is out of reality .I don't think this is simply how he was brought up.

Carrie ,TY for posting!

The U.S. seems to have countless numbers of nutcases like this one.

I'm glad that he was caught. These people are terroritsts and should be put away for decades. Thank you for the excellent post, Carrie.

This is a truly shocking story, Carrie.

1) The man "is technically banned from possessing a gun for the rest of his life", yet he is allowed to amass this arsenal for a whole army without anyone taking notice.

2) There are no American white terrorists and never have been, so the NSA is only spying on people with Muslim ties and is mainly looking abroad.

3) The NRA have a secret database where all details of purchases are kept (from another post here at Care2), but is only interested in making money so they probably only used the information to tell him what other people also liked and bought when they purchased a gun like his.

4) The Feds found his armoury by accident after tracking some knock-off jerseys from China!?

Add it all up, people, something is terribly wrong here!

~Green Stars all over the place - Lona I wanted to give you a star for that but have just given you a star for another post, sorry; green star Carrie in particular for notifying us of this petrifying occurence. I have seen before that in some states in America that some people on government watch lists are able to buy guns and ammunition (to the rest of the world's amazement) - although this looks different, it is still VERY alarming - how many other violent lunatics armed to the teeth are out there?

"ďI canít tell you how he got all those guns and ammunition,Ē U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach told the Plain Dealer. ďItís not that I wonít tell you; itís that I canít. This is somebody who should never have had one gun, one bullet. But he had an entire arsenal.Ē " - How very honest of Mr Dettelbach!

As others have said - what are the many security agencies doing to let such lunatics go free - they raid people who look up back packs on their computers, yet let this and others go past. MOST strange!

With hope, one Congressman/ Senator will read this artice. This is not a bigot from the South, this man was from Ohio; not a state known for hate on this level.

This is quite terrifying... Thank goodness he was caught before he could do anything. This is a great example of why people need to open their minds and relinquish bigotry. Not only against African-Americans and Jews, but Muslims, immigrants, etc.
