Munir Abdulkader, a 21-year-old West Chester Twp. man, pleaded guilty to a host of charges, including attempting to kill United States officers and employees as he planned to join the terrorist group ISIS.

Under the plea agreement, Abdulkader also pleaded guilty to support a foreign terrorist organization and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. Abdulkader was charged for his plot to attack and kill an employee of a U.S. military installation and then attack a local police station all in southern Ohio.

[...]

According to court documents, Adbulkader was arrested on May 21, 2015, in Mason by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force after a controlled purchase and possession of the AK-47 assault rifle. He purchased the rifle for $350, according to the original complaint.
He was charged a day latter May 22, 2015 and a bill of information was filed on March 2, 2016. Abdulkader pleaded guilty to the three charges in the information on March 24, 2016, before U.S. District Judge Michael R. Barrett. The case was under seal until Thursday.
This is only like 20 minutes from where I live - there's a big Muslim population and mosque in West Chester (which I visited for class a few years back if anyone remembers me posting pictures from that).

But geez, this was really close to home and makes me not like that I work right next door to our city's municipal building/police station...

Avoid gun free zones, terrorists and mass shooters love those places.

It's fine, just unnerving. But I guess that's one of the effects they hope for.

Yep, obvious sting op.  An AK-47 assault rifle is generally going to run closer to $15,000.00.  A semi-suto civilian version has gone up in price.

"Hey kid, wanna buy an AK?"
"How much?"
"$350."
"Is is Century Arms?"
"No, Bulgarian."
"Nope, sting op."
