Sounds Like They Had Plenty Of Money

The LA Times has some info on the San Bernardino shooters

“Police discovered a veritable armory when they searched Farook and Malik’s Redlands home, recovering a dozen pipe bombs, 2,000 9-millimeter handgun rounds, 2,500 .223-caliber assault rifle rounds and “hundreds of tools” that could have been used to make additional explosive devices, Burguan said.”

(snip)

“During a news conference Thursday, Burguan said the suspects had 1,400 assault rifle rounds and 200 handgun rounds in their car as they fled from police.”

Let us ignore the AR style rifles and handguns the couple had with them.  How much do you guys think all that ammo cost, anyway?

Looks like the claim that poverty causes terrorism is pretty thoroughly debunked!

(Tip of the hat.)

    depending on the type/brand of ammo, right about $1500.
    1K of 223 is 274 for Brown Bear
    1k of 9mm for 199 for zvs

    so for 4K 223, and 2K 9mm, that would be $1494 plus shipping.

    Even better, some of the homegrown wannabe jihadis (In Europe, Australia, and in the US.) are funding their religious awakenings to the House of War with the taxpayers’ money they are getting – Powerline even noted that one wannabee jihadi from Minnesota, who was arrested before he could go to join ISIS, was funding his trip from his federal student loan debit account.

    Limbaugh mentioned today that Farook had recently had a deposit of ~$29,000 made into his account. He then pointed out that that amount was equal to 3,000,000 Pakistani rupees. Odd that.
