Feds: Colorado man made bombs, wanted to trade them for cocaine

Source: CNN

A Colorado man who lived near a park crafted explosives he claimed could kill everyone within 20 meters, hoping to trade the bombs and other weapons for cocaine or cash, authorities said.

Special agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested Richard Sandberg, 35, on Thursday morning as he was heading to work, said Jeffrey Dorschner, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Colorado.

In the afternoon, he appeared in federal court, where he was ordered held without bond until at least a detention hearing Tuesday.

His arrest followed an undercover sting that revealed the suspect had an arsenal of "homemade" improvised explosive devices and military-grade grenades in his suburban Denver home, according to an affidavit filed by an ATF agent in federal court.

3. Not hilarious...disturbing

Looks like this individual actually had the ability to cause great harm, unlike most of the people that turn up in these stories.

5. Deep down in the story

"He expressed contempt for President Barack Obama and his administration, and the ATF in particular."

This would be the headline if it were Bush

6. This needs to be laid at the feet ...

Of Faux news, Limbaugh, and the many stooges of the right ...

Simpletons on the right have been living on a steady diet of hate and misinformation for a decade now ... this is the result ...

7. I'm confused. Doesn't he have a second amendment right to bear arms?

I get that he's not allowed to trade them for cocaine, but reading the piece, it said almost nothing about that and nothing about him being charged with anything regarding drugs.

If he has the right to bear arms, how can it be infringed? How can there be grenades that the US military has which he's not allowed to possess? Isn't that a clear violation of this second amendment rights?
