-spread poisonous powder
-attack federal installations
-murder government officials "Eric Holder argued that using lethal military force against an American in his his home country would be legal and justified in an 'extraordinary circumstance' comparable to the Sep 11 terrorist attacks. The president could conceivable have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland". -Deny Americans their constitutional rights
-Prospect of assassination of an American citizen: "entirely hypothetical", "unlikely to occur".
-The government has no intention to
carry out any drone strikes in the US". Issue: Anonymous Groups
-They are Hacktivists, relying on mostly DDoS attacks and "raids"; much like a 21st-century version of the prank phone call
-They started as just a group on 4chan and because an internet super consciousness. They CAN be surprisingly organized and get things done.
-But what happens when one person decides to join under the name and do something going in the opposite direction of the flock? -Anonymous is still fighting many of the fights (marriage equality, freedom of information and internet freedom )
-They were involved in the DDoS of the Playstation Network that took down the network for months to upgrade security in reaction to Sony suing a user for modifying his console (in the same way iPhones are often unlocked). -Anonymous is less left than many people think.
-Dislike Obama for his drone strikes and laws allowing indefinite detention -Are okay with him due to his support for marriage equality.
-They fight for total freedom, but will also fight for morality (in October 2011 they took down a child pornography site with over 100gb of child porn using DDoS attacks). Anonymous Groups Anonymous exists in two different senses: They are a group, but not a group. Tagline: We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us. Dawn Nguyen

-Charge against her: "straw purchase" of guns
-Spengler hand-picked guns he wanted: .223 Bushmaster high-powered rifle and a Mossberg .12 gauge pump-action shotgun
-Dawn Nguyen bought guns under her name, but Spengler took possession of them.
