    On the news this morning in Branchburg, New Jersey a man was pulled over who was carrying an assualt rifle, police scanner, and US military maps.

    When the police went back to the hotel well, read what they found...
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Branchburg NJ - Authorities Seize Grenade Launcher, Weapons Cache From Virginia Man at NJ Motel -- VosIzNeias.com NJ - Somerset County investigators seized a cache of weapons including a grenade launcher and hundreds of rounds of ammunition today from the Branchburg motel room of a Virginia man, who also had maps of a U.S. military facility and an out-of-state civilian community.

    Lloyd Woodson, 43, whose last known address was Reston, Va., today faces multiple offenses, including second-degree unlawful weapons possession and fourth-degree possession of prohibited weapons, Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest said.

    At the time of his arrest, Woodson was wearing a military-style ballistic vest with a reinforced steel plate and carrying a .223-caliber assault rifle that had been altered to fire .50-caliber ammunition, Forrest. He was also carrying four loaded magazines with hollow-point ammunition, Forrest said.

    Branchburg police confronted Woodson at 3:55 a.m. at the Quick Chek convenience store on Route 28 after receiving a call reporting a suspicious person. Branchburg Patorlman Steven Cronce noticed a large bulge beneath the green, military-style jacket that Woodson was wearing, which was later determined to be the assault rifle with a defaced serial number, Forrest said.

    Woodson appeared "extremely nervous" as Cronce questioned him, and he ultimately ran from the convenience store toward the Regency Trailer Park on Route 22, Forrest. Officers found Woodson hiding in the bushes and he attempted to run, Forrest said.

    Officers tackled him and used pepper spray to subdue Woodson, Forrest said.

    Detectives later searched Woodson’s room at the Red Mill Inn on Route 22 and found weapons including a .308-caliber semi-automatic assault rifle with a defaced serial number, a grenade launcher, hundreds .50-caliber and .308-caliber rounds, a police scanner, and the maps of a U.S. military installation and an out-of-state civilian community, Forrest said.

    Investigators also found Middle Eastern red and white traditional headdress, Forrest said.

    An assault rifle modified to take .50 calibre?
    What was this military installation manned by? Grizzly bears?

    A Barrett Light Fifty is one thing, but it's got the mass to absorb some of the kick and you'd normally use deliberate fire with one of those anyway but an assault rifle? He must have shoulders like a lion.

    There's conversion kits that turn an AR15 into a .50cal Beowolf round, just swap out uppers. It's no where near as lethal as what you think the normal .50cal machine gun or Barret bullet, still packs a nasty punch thou.

    Or be dumb as a post. Like you note, a 50 cal is going to be a bear to work. Plus, you've got to wonder how many rounds he'd get off before the thing malfunctioned. Hell of a kick.

    Well, anyway, he's in the pokey for a long time. Even if he skips on a technicality, he's still going to be in the loop for a long time. Jail is a good place for him.

    Wow, this could have turned ugly. Oh well, I heard that orange jumpsuits are the latest fashion trend anyway.

    The town isn't even 6 miles from where I live which is the nerve wracking part.

    Sounds more like a case of severe mental illness than terrorism.

    6 miles is a fair distance though

    Easy to counter Harrison:

    i. concealment: start wearing face camo and leopard-crawling to school and back. Duck behind flower beds if you hear sirens.

    ii. disguises: if you're hanging with your friends, try wearing your mom's clothes and a wig. If you've got the legs for it, wear heels.

    iii. irregular behaviour patterns: move your bed and belongings to different rooms in the house every two days or so

    iv. veiled speech: give yourself a codename; when your friends phone to see if you want to hang (in your mom's clothes), tell them to refer to you as 'ice man' or some other cryptic handle

    v. school profile: go see your principal. Demand that a 'fall guy' sit between you and the window

    Fantastic ideas Colin.

    Harrison, have you ever heard "A stitch in time saves 9"? I think you should adopt everything Colin said..........and then send us the pics for proof. A little prevention could save your life!!!!

    While wearing your mothers clothing to school may double your chances of getting a date for the weekend I would use some of the other ideas before resorting to this.
