I'm not worried about terrorists anymore

HILLSBOROUGH -- A letter police found in Mohammed Taheri-Azar's bedroom said he wanted to kill Americans but that driving a rented sport utility vehicle through a crowded campus plaza was not his first choice.

With family members sitting behind the 22-year-old, sometimes crying on one another's shoulders, a police investigator read the typed letter during a hearing Friday in Orange County District Court.

This guy, this terrorist mastermind that planned his attack months beforehand, couldn't figure out how to buy a handgun. In America. In the south. In Chapel Hill, which is near Durham, Raleigh, Greensboro and many other places that you could quite literally take an afternoon, walk around for a few hours with a bit of cash, and come home with any number of pistols.

His plan was to murder as many people as possible, but a simple gun law stopped him from getting a firearm. A gun law during the Bush administration. I can legally buy assault weapons and Mohammed can't figure out how to get ahold of a saturday night special. Theft wasn't an option? Craigslist? Ebay? Ever been to a gun show? Did you even Google the word gun?

Worst. Terrorist. Ever.
