Regardless of the verdict, I’m curious about whether he gets to keep his rifle.

Hey, why the assumption he wanted Barbara (the daughter)? Perhaps he was looking for a way to kill GW Bush and get an insanity plea out of the deal. After all, what better claim for a finding of insantiy could one have than a romantic infatuation with the 88 yr old, former first lady?

True, the note and outburst do no define a real threat. But what about the rifle, machete and gasoline?

Obviously this fellow’s turn signal is stuck. In better days they would have institutionalized him.
