Woman to be Sentenced After Threatening Mass Shooting at Gateway Community College

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by krispos42 (a host of the Gun Control & RKBA group).

An East Haven woman is facing sentencing for threatening to bomb and shoot up Gateway Community College last February.

Amanda Bowden is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Hartford. She pleaded guilty last year to one count of false information and hoaxes.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Bowden made numerous phone calls and sent out text messages to a witness detailing a suicidal plot against the school. She also claimed to have guns and at least two napalm-based bombs, but a search of her home turned up no guns or bombs.

1. She owns no guns. Why the need to post it here?

perhaps the mental health forum is a better choice?

2. and?

no guns, no bombs, and no shootings. No, you can't buy napalm at Wal Mart or any gun store.

5. unlike "assault weapon"

brandishing, like stalking, has a specific definition, which means waving or pointing it at someone in a threatening manner.

Simply holding it in a photo isn't brandishing. Since there was no gun found, there is no evidence that it is a real gun. Just because someone decides to misuse the term doesn't make it so.

6. Locking

This would not seem to fit the SoP of the Group, as the crime she is accused of does not include any actual guns. Or bombs.

Try the Connecticut Group.
