Sorry, not seeing the relevance here.

For what?

Nothing suggests his father was aware of his sonís social media activity.

The collection of firearms and ammo likely belonged to his parent, no diff than the firearms and gear, used by the Sandy Hook shooter.

Most people canít imagine their children are capable of mass violence.

Maybe not, but how about the huge arsenal and stockpile of ammo ? Was he blind to that , or a gun nut too ?

If we're being honest, the number of guns and rounds of ammo is meant to make the news story more salacious since many people are completely uninformed about guns they just ooh and ahh and cluck about how scary that is.

The vast majority of US murders are gang and drug related and the shooter has a couple guns at most.

The attempt to try to construct a stereotype of people with lots of guns and ammos as being unstable and a huge threat to us all is patently false.
You people are certainly doing a thorough job at reinforcing the validity of the stereotype

Twenty five firearms and ten thousand bullets and the best he can come up with is, "duhhhh, I was only JOKING, Mr FBI Agent!"

Enjoy the slammer, funny guy.

Is there anything unlawful here?
