    The kids MOM got them for him, at least the assault rifle. At the Valley Forge Gun show. Apparently, the DA is considering pressing charges against his mama as well. Good idea.

    EDIT: Just read the updated article and Mom WAS charged. Man, this is scary on a number of levels, one being that this is the school that my son's wrestling club holds practices and where we have our tournament. So glad it was stopped before it was started. Here is the story from MSNBC:

    NORRISTOWN, Pa. - The mother of a 14-year-old who authorities say had a cache of guns, knives and explosive devices in his bedroom for a possible school attack was charged Friday with buying her son three weapons.

    Michele Cossey bought her home-schooled son a .22-caliber handgun, a .22-caliber rifle and a 9 mm semiautomatic rifle, authorities said. The teenager felt bullied and tried to recruit another boy for the possible attack at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School in suburban Philadelphia, authorities said.

    Police officials told NBC News that the boy had confessed to plotting the attack.

    Acting on a tip from a high school student and his father, police on Wednesday found the rifle, about 30 air-powered guns, swords, knives, a bomb-making book, videos of the 1999 Columbine attack in Colorado and violence-filled notebooks in the boy’s bedroom, Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr. said.
    Cossey, 46, of Plymouth Meeting, bought the rifle, which had a laser scope, at a gun show on Sept. 23 and provided police with a receipt, investigators said in court papers. The teenager said the two .22-caliber weapons were stored at a friend’s house.

    The teen was ordered Friday to remain in juvenile detention.

    His mother was charged with unlawful transfer of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a minor, corruption of a minor, endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of reckless endangerment.

    No sign of imminent attack
    Castor has said he does not believe and attack was imminent or would occur at all. He said Friday that the teen had a “disturbed mind.”

    “This was a smart kid that clearly believes he was picked on and was a victim,” Castor said. “He had psychological issues and began to act out on those feelings.”

    On Thursday, Castor said he felt police were instrumental “in stopping a potential Columbine-like shooting.”
