Guardsman jailed for running with training rifle

In a story that has to be read to be believed, , a Virginia Guardsman has been arrested for running with his training rifle, and charged with terrorism.

Yep, terrorism.

Seems he scared some people. "Terrorized" them, in fact.

A West Virginia man arrested while running in desert camouflage with an AR-15 training rifle is a member of the Virginia National Guard who served a tour of duty in Iraq, and his father says he’s not a terrorist.

Seems he was running with his gear. That doesn't appear to be illegal, although maybe there are people who wish it was. But unfortunately, he managed to run too "near" to a school, hence violating a national law that prohibits guns near public schools.

Now he is stuck in jail, instead of training for his next mission protecting us from terrorists.

Meanwhile, the Obama administraion keeps looking for ways to release real terrorists.
