Shocking predictions regarding the Boston Marathon suspect made on anonymous message board four days prior to Tsarnaev’s capture
On Monday, April 15, at 6:42 p.m., a little under four hours after the initial bombs went off in Boston on Boylston Street near Copley Square, an anonymous 4chan user posted some fairly portentous information on a thread discussing the bombings.
WARNING: Laws being written to screw you.
I work on a security commission and I just received word to start campaigning on a campaign we’ve been working on for the last two months and now it all makes sense.
I’ll keep it as short as I can.
They’re going to pin this event on a male late teens to early 20s and say he did it because he’s unstable. They’re going to find firearms and a NRA book in his home. They are going to say he used reloading powder for the explosion and that reloading powder shouldn’t be for sale to the public. They are then going to say that because the powder in ammunition can be used for explosives that the number of rounds you can buy should be limited and taxed to help pay for these events.
… They won’t find the suspect till later this week and the raid is issued to occur on Friday …
Of all the claims made, the most astonishing would be the precision regarding the raid, which did occur Friday, April 19th in Watertown.
It was also reported that gunpowder was the main incendiary component for the bombs. The Chicago Tribune reports:
At least one bomb, and possibly both, were built using pressure cookers as the superstructure, black powder or gunpowder [a puzzling distinction, unless the Tribune is confusing modern smokeless powder with gunpowder] as the explosive and ball bearings as additional shrapnel, according to current and former counter-terrorism officials briefed on the matter.
Finally, as I just posted earlier, 26-year-old Tamerlan, who was killed in a hail of gunfire, also read up on “the rape of our gun rights.”
The final nail in the coffin is that only hours after the incident, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) announced two new amendments to his previously floundering efforts for gunpowder control legislation, or his “Explosive Materials Background Check Act” AKA “The Lautenberg Amendment.”
The Examiner summarized the legal jargon of S. 649., S. Amd. 736, and S. Amd. 737:
Basically, the legislation appears to impose the same background check requirements for the purchase of any amount of black powder or smokeless powder that are now imposed on the purchase of firearms, including, of course, the famous “Lautenberg Amendment,” which retroactively bans purchases for misdemeanor domestic violence convictions.
