    Several IEDs found in Edmond apartment

    Can we ban IEDs as well as assault rifles?

    EDMOND, Oklahoma - Emergency personnel responded to reports of an explosive device found near the scene of an apartment fire in Edmond, Thursday evening.
    Edmond Police confirmed that the bomb squad was called to the Christopher Place apartment complex, located at 101 N. Boulevard after reports of a small explosion.

    Police say fire crews responded to a call about a fire at the complex. When they arrived they extinguished a small blaze and noticed what they thought were improvised explosive devices. Fire crews backed away from the scene and called the Edmond Bomb Squad in to investigate.

    Members of the Edmond Bomb squad found several IEDs and they say several of them were live. They believe the occupant was working on a device when it accidentally went off. One suspect is being questioned by police.

    Investigators say there were some explosive bomb-making materials inside the apartment. Witnesses near the scene say the explosion sounded like a firework going off.

    Edmond Police say the area is secure. Surrounding apartments were evacuated because of the threat.

    No other information is available at this time.

    Some bomb squads employ military veterans who have recent extensive experience in disarming IED’s.



    The real questions are, what was this guy going to do with them?
    Is this guy a home grown nut job or... somebody from a foreign country with ties to others….
    Could this be part of something that’s much bigger?

    But what Clark II?
    It’s not a bad idea to try and find out what might be on a list of targets.

    Not very many places in Oklahoma are ever mentioned as a specific target by officials.

    I figure there will be a bunch of dipshit encounters all over the place tomorrow. Maybe even a significant event.

    Very Wrong^

    OU is known in the major oil fields around the world and has educated many people from the Middle East area.

    That’s also true.

    For anybody who doesn’t think OU is reasonably well known around the world they should try traveling though some the worlds bigger airports while wearing OU gear.

    There’s a new 7 day waiting period on buying small DIA pipe because it could be used to help build a pipe bomb….

    IEDs are banned. You can't buy them at Walmart.

    Yes, there was that batshit crazy one that was all over the news back then that lived in Norman for a while. I think he was the one that told the flying school that he was interested in learning to take off but wasn't all that interested in learning to land. The instructors thought that was kind of unusual.

    The Walmart on S. Lewis in Tulsa...I wouldn't be surprised if you could buy pipe bombs and crack rock inside the store. I'm sure you can in the parking lot.

    This is certainly another reason to ban assault weapons.

    Edmond was recently ranked the 9th safest city in the U.S. by the F.B.I. They also have the headquarters for all the forensics testing and training in Oklahoma across the street from UCO. Just goes to show you this stuff can happen anywhere.
