Authorities seized nine guns from an East Hollywood home where a 24-year-old man was arrested after allegedly posting on Facebook a threat of shootings at multiple elementary schools, police said.

Kyle Bangayan, 24, of Pomona, was arrested Sunday at his parents' home in the 1200 block of North New Hampshire Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said. He was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats and held on $500,000 bail.

Los Angeles police officers and FBI agents found the weapons rifles, a shotgun and multiple handguns along with ammunition, the LAPD said. It was not immediately known to whom the guns belonged.

The arrest came the same day LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced daily dedicated patrols around Los Angeles schools to protect against potential shootings. The increased security will begin when students return to classes in January from winter break, he said.

11. You just answered your own question

They're inspired by previous killings.

The media is to blame for its 24/7 coverage. They're itching to distract Americans from the fiscal cliff debate.

13. The fiscal cliff?

You think that is more important than the slaughter of children?

15. I think the remark

was not meant like that. There are people cynical and heartless enough to seek ways of benefiting politically and economically from any tragedy. I think that's what was meant.

14. Alcohol

Most likely. Substance abuse is the number one correlation with violence.

9. But what about the Second Amendment?

I'm sorry, I know a lot of people around here are supporters of the Second Amendment, but this is a case where it is totally reasonable for someone to have their guns seized. I don't have problem with responsible, legal gun owners, but I simply don't believe that gun rights extend to those who aren't responsible. There has to be separation and that isn't "gun grabbing" or violating anyone's rights, it's common sense.

16. You mean he was part of a well-regulated militia?

Oh right -- the gunjobs always conveniently forget about that little clause.
