FBI Raids Minnesota Home Full Of Molotov Cocktails, Suspected Pipe Bombs

The FBI believes authorities disrupted a terrorism attack that was being planned in a small western Minnesota city when they arrested a man after converging on a mobile home that contained Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms, the agency said Monday.

Buford Rogers, 24, of Montevideo, was arrested Friday and charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He remained in federal custody Monday and it was not clear if he had an attorney.

“The FBI believed there was a terror attack in its planning stages, and we believe there would have been a localized terror attack, and that’s why law enforcement moved quickly to execute the search warrant on Friday to arrest Mr. Rogers,” FBI spokesman Kyle Loven said Monday.
Funny how all these caucasian guys are coming up now with all these terrorists plans. What happened to the middle east guys?

. . .

According to a federal affidavit obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, FBI agents from the domestic terrorism squad searched the property at the mobile home park in Montevideo and discovered the Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms. The affidavit said Buford was there at the time of the search, and one firearm recovered from Buford’s residence was a Romanian AKM assault rifle.

In an interview with authorities, Rogers admitted firing the weapon on two separate occasions at a gun range in Granite Falls, the affidavit said. Rogers has a past conviction for felony burglary and is not allowed to have a firearm.

Rogers is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court Monday.

Rogers’ 2011 felony burglary conviction stems from an incident in Lac qui Parle County. He also has a 2009 misdemeanor conviction for dangerous handling of a weapon in Hennepin County, as well as other criminal violations, according to online court records.

Dustin Rathbun, who lives next door to Rogers’ home, said he saw Friday’s raid and arrest. He said he didn’t know the family well because he didn’t see them outside much.

Rathbun said the only thing that stood out was he and other neighbors noticed a few months ago the family was flying an upside-down flag from the side of their mobile home. He said the owners of the park asked them to take it down.
Further proof the republicans like to have felons and criminals buy guns so their insider stock trading gets done. THIS guy had NO trouble, obviously, getting an Romanian AK-47 at a gun show or online on the internet.

Sick...republicans feed terrorists...so their stocks go up...and they don't care that police men die.

You can buy an AK-47 online? Really? With no FFL holder involved? Well now.

how do we know he was a terrorist exactly? So he had a gun when he wasn't permitted to. Big woop, as far as im concerned the government is guilty of much worse. You found pipe bombs, guns and moltov cocktails? Big deal, he was on his own property, his own things. I can understand that he shouldn't have had a gun, but a terrorist? As far as im aware, he didn't commit any act of terrorism yet, so labeling him as a terrorist is just wrong. We are to soon to forget that you are INNOCENT until proven guilty. He didn't hurt anybody, treating him as a terrorist even if it looks as though he is is just wrong.

Molotov coctails are gasoline in bottles, with a rag as a 'fuse'.

Evil Republicans Permit Gasoline To Be Sold! Permit Bottles To Be Sold! Allow Rags!

As good a headline as any Dem crack house troll can make up.

I didn't make up the headline. It was with the article. You really are incapable of discussing this? If so, why bother to interject posts here? Just to name call me some filthy and vile name? Really? That's a reflection of who you are, you know, not who I am.

Would you mind sharing with the rest of us your secret information that shows that he bought the gun at a gun show or online? While you are giving us that, could you make up your mind where he bought it? Are there gun shows online?

Could you show us the inside trading this individual did that benefitted Republicans?

I also presume you have assess to the information that this individual was a registered Republican rather than a registered Democrat; could you share that as well?

On line purchase. No background check.

Who the guys was doesn't matter. The republicans in Congress are the ones refusing to close the loopholes in the sale of guns to criminals and the mentally insane.

In a news release Monday, the FBI said it believed “the lives of several local residents were potentially saved” by the search and arrest, and said “several guns and explosive devices were discovered.” The agency said the alleged terror plot was discovered through analysis of intelligence gathered by local, state and federal authorities.
In an interview with authorities, Rogers admitted firing the weapon on two separate occasions at a gun range in Granite Falls, the affidavit said. Rogers has a past conviction for felony burglary and is not allowed to have a firearm.
Man, JimmyB, except for that pesky little lack of comprehension thingy, you could have already moved this discussion on .

The registration provision was intended to bring transparency to the growing political intelligence trade, which sees plugged-in tipsters marketing private congressional information to hedge funds and traders on Wall Street.

The version of the STOCK Act that passed the Senate last week was attracting opposition from Wall Street and K Street due to the provision.

Cantor dropped the registration requirement from the House version of the bill, replacing it with a provision that requires a government study on the issue.

Reps. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) and Tim Walz (D-Minn.), the original authors of the legislation, said they were dismayed to see the registration requirement withdrawn.

“The thing we greatly feared has come upon us,” said Slaughter. “It has been weakened totally, as far as I’m concerned.”

Nonetheless, the two said they planned to support the House bill when it hits the floor on Thursday.

Cantor is bringing up the bill under a suspension of House rules. That will prohibit amendments, limit debate and require a two-thirds vote for final approval.

Fred Wertheimer, president of watchdog group Democracy 21, said by suspending the House rules, Cantor is blocking parts of the Senate bill that have been supported by a majority of lawmakers.

“They are basically using procedures to override the overwhelming will of the House,” Wertheimer said. “Majority Leader Cantor is afraid to have those issues come to a vote because I’m sure he knows that he would lose.”
