Missouri police foil mass murder plot at `Twilight` screening, Walmart

BOLIVAR, MO (KCTV5) -
A 20-year-old man is accused of buying assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in a plot to commit mass murder at a Twilight screening and a Missouri Walmart.

Blaec Lammers' plot was foiled because his mother alerted police, according to court documents.

The woman told police her son had bought weapons similar to those used by a gunman inside an Aurora, CO, movie theater showing the premiere of the latest Batman movie. Twelve people died and 58 were injured in Colorado.

"His mother further stated that, with the opening of the new Twilight movie, she was concerned that Blaec Lammers may have intentions of shooting people at the movie," according to the court documents.

After he was taken in for questioning, Lammers admitted he had bought the firearms with the intention of shooting up the movie theater in Bolivar on Sunday. However, he later decided to also target a Walmart because he feared running out of ammunition and he would have access to additional ammunition inside the Walmart, according to court documents.

2. Please Don't Shoot the Twi-Hards!

Well, don't shoot anybody. But Twi-Hards are too much fun to mock.

3. As a parent, I can't imagine having to make that phone call. It must be one of the hardest things to

do. I suppose it's easier to make the phone call before anything happens than after. I'm glad that mom had the courage to do so before, and my thoughts are with her tonight.

4. It was the mother of two teen boys who turned them in for

the murder of a 12-year-old girl in their neighborhood. They killed her for her bike, if I remember correctly.

Thank goodness I never had to face such a situation with my own kids, but I like to think that I would also be able to do the right thing if it came to that.

My guess with these mothers is that they have long since lost any control they ever had over their sons, and that they might themselves feel a certain amount of fear around their own kids. If the kids are nasty and obnoxious to their mothers all the time, it probably would make it a bit easier for the mother to accept that she must call the cops when the evidence shows they are involved in or plan to be involved in horrendous crimes.

5. I've known a couple of parents with adult offspring who need mental help but refuse to get it; they

are ashamed to hope for a harmless incident such as this one, so they can report their children and get them in the system. It's heartbreaking.

8. I dunno. I think it used to be less risky than now.

You can be peacefully minding your own damn business and then POW!
Some asshole is talking or texting and runs a red light and you're T-boned.
That happened to an acquaintance a month ago. She's dead.
Just on a trip to Winn-Dixie to get groceries for the week and now?
Gone.
Forever.

9. It's actually much safer than you believe, no need to resort to lethal weapons and such.


Now, if more and more people start taking the law into their own hands/guns -- it might become dangerous.

And, of course, we need to restrict the availability of weapons to guys like this.

10. I seem to recall Missouri police foiling another plot after Aurora, CO.

and something to do with a wal-mart. When I search, though, all I come up with is this story.

11. There were bomb threats at WalMarts across MO for several weeks around that same time

I don't think they've ever found the responsible party, though.
