Man with stockpile of guns arrested for threatening Obama, Muslims
The Massachusetts man threatened to attack President Obama, the police and a mosque.
Joseph Garguilo, 48, is charged with being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition. He was scheduled to appear in federal court in Boston at 2:30 p.m. on Monday; it wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
According to the criminal complaint, the FBI received information on July 27 that Garguilo had recently acquired parts to make an AR-15 rifle and was stockpiling other weapons, including Tasers, mace guns, hunting knives and chemicals to make thermite grenades.
Around the same time, he allegedly stated that “he will plant a bomb in police stations … and kill as many homeland security officers as he can before they kill him.”
