    You want to threaten people?  I hope people drop a dime on you and you get arrested.  There is no place for that bullshit.

    Good on LE in picking these idiots up.

    It drives me crazy seeing politicians talk about "red flag" laws.  The same politicians that have been ignoring all the red flags regarding the danger of our current gun control legislation.  How many red flags do we need?

    Don’t know whether to laugh or cry on your comment.
    These cockroaches are pouring out of the woodwork...  Copycats? 
    Law enforcement finally cracking down?
    Concerned citizens fed up and taking heed?
    I’m thinking all of the above.

    Just watched a video of a 15 year old getting arrested in Florida on a felony charge for threatening a mass shooting on a video game platform.
    I felt pretty bad for him and his mother, and so did the cops, but they (and I myself) also felt that these sorts of threats need to be taken seriously.  He made a grave mistake and he will pay dearly for it, and that sucks, but it's life.
    That's the world we live in.

    Only people who should feel sorry are his parents - sorry for themselves -  for not raising their kid to know better.  They should also face some kind of punishment as the kid is their responsibility.  At this point, if you make a threat like that and don't think there will be consequences, you deserve every consequence thrown at you.

    Agree, and disagree.
    Can you imagine being held responsible for everything you said at 15?
    Granted, I never said anything like that, but if words reach criminal level...yeah I said some stuff about sex and more minor forms of violence of which I am ashamed.

    I am with you on this. 

    What 15 year old boy ever thought through the implications of .... anything at all? 

    This needs to be taken seriously, and maybe there is a major issue here, but maybe the only issue is the stupidity of the teenage brain, with technology allowing capability to outstrip judgement.

    Weekend in juvi with record expunged at 18. There should be consequences but to send a stern message that this is no joke.

    Assuming it is just teenaged stupidity, a qualified yes. Don’t discount the potential harms that getting an otherwise reasonable kid involved in the juvenile justice system can do. Meeting kids who already engage in violent and destructive behaviour and who welcome you into their peer group isn’t a good thing. 

    If it looks to be a situation with actual risk, then should be handled quite differently.

    So, does he get his guns back? At age 18? Be banned from owning or possessing? Regardless, we all know a “responsible” gun owner will sell if he’s in the market.
