A STRIKING SAMENESS:

Police: Man had gun rigged for fast firing, explosives ready (AMANDA LEE MYERS and TOM DAVIES, 6/15/16, Associated Press)

An Indiana man who said he was headed to a gay pride event in California had a loaded assault rifle with magazines rigged to allow 60 shots to be fired in quick succession, plus 15 pounds of chemicals mixed and ready to explode, authorities said. [...]

Friends in Indiana described Howell as a gun enthusiast with a short temper. In October, he twice was accused of pulling a gun and making threats, once against his then-boyfriend and once against a neighbor.
