A Pennsylvania woman faces multiple criminal charges after buying guns and bomb-making materials for her emotionally disturbed 14-year old son. Michele Cossey is accused of purchasing a 9mm semiautomatic rifle, a .22 rifle and handgun, and black powder for use in making grenades, CNN reports. Her son, home-schooled after withdrawing in 2006, is being charged with solicitation to commit terror.
Police are convinced the boy was planning a Columbine-style attack: A search of his room found the weapons in plain sight, along with 30 additional air rifles, knives, bomb-making recipes and a video of the Columbine incident. Police acted on a tip from a local high school student.
