Another Massacre Narrowly Avoided

Posted shortly before noon today by the Associated Press

CEDAR LAKE, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say an Indiana man who had 47 guns and ammunition in his home has been arrested after allegedly threatening to kill people at an elementary school near his home.

Cedar Lake police were called to the home of 60-year-old Von I. Meyer early Friday after he allegedly threatened to set his wife on fire. A police statement says Meyer also said he would enter Jane Ball Elementary School and "kill as many people as he could."

Authorities found 47 guns and ammunition worth over $100,000.

Why would anyone need 47 guns? This is fetishistic.

    One starts to wonder if Zardoz wasn’t so much as sci-fi film as it was a prediction of modern life.
