Police find pipe bombs, thousands of rounds in San Bernardino jihadis’ home


Devout Muslim Syed Rizwan Farook and his religious wife Tashfeen Malik opened fire on a Christmas party firing 65 to 75 rounds resulting in a bloodbath with 14 people dead and 21 more wounded. People were gunned down and shot while they hid beneath desks.

Officials confirmed at press conference today that Farook had traveled abroad extensively in 2014, including Pakistan (and Saudi Arabia in the Spring. His wife, Malik, had entered the country on a K-1 visa, which is a nonimmigrant visa for people engaged to U.S. citizens, and traveled on a Pakistani passport.

 At a press conference in San Bernardino, police rule appear to rule out workplace violence as a motive. They confirm that the guns were purchased legally, though only the handguns were purchased by Farook. The vehicle used was rented through yesterday, and therefore had Utah license plates. Law enforcement will release the names of the victims throughout the day.

Police said the home of the two jihadis killed was full of pipe bombs and ammunition. And said most definitely this was extensively pre-planned. NBC News is reporting that the suspects left a remote-controlled bomb on the scene of the holiday party, similar to that used by the Tsarnaev brothers in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The aim was to kill police and medical personnel. The devices apparently malfunctioned.

The police also cooperated with the local FBI branch, which was called in to help dispose of booby traps at the Redlands home of one of the [jihadis.]

The idea that Obama and his agencies refuse to call this terror is an attack on this country. Instead it’s all about gun control. What will gun control do to control pipe bombs, remote control bomb-rigged devices and the ideology at the heart of this war?

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said authorities found 12 pipe bombs, 2,000 9 mm rounds, 2,500 .223-caliber rounds and hundreds of long rifle rounds in the rented home. Hundreds of tools that could be used to make improvised explosive devices were also found. (more….)

Federal authorities said that the two assault rifles and two handguns used in the San Bernardino massacre that left 14 dead and 21 others injured were all purchased legally in the United States — two of them by someone who’s now under investigation.

Besides the 12 pipe bombs and hundreds of tools found in the San Bernardino shooters’ home, police found another 2,000 9-mm rounds, 2,500 .223 rifle rounds and several hundred more rifle rounds, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.
