    I dunno, John Hinckley's attempt to kill then POTUS Reagan was quite lame. I mean who goes after someone with a .22 pistol? I'm glad he wasn't successful btw.
    The pistol. Lol!

    I can't remember the name of the stuff, but I think Hinkley used a special ammo that supposedly "exploded " on impact. I remember seeing ads for this ammo when I was a kid.

    Many people here predicted that some leftist would attempt to murder our President.

    Yup! I spoke of it many times. I fear for Trump & family`s safety. Crazy people out there.
    Its been my biggest fear since he announced he was running for president.

    How does someone get ahold of ricin? Not looking for any just seems it would be hard for your average citizen to come by.

    I think you can make it out of castor beans. I have a copy of the the anarchists cookbook around with a recipe.

    I know it comes from caster beans. I use to grow them and always heard they were poison. Not looking for a recipe but I doubt the average citizen could just cook up some ricin though
    Most of these attacks usually turn out to be baby powder or something. Being that this was the real thing it seems to me it must be someone with some professional experience.

    It is easier than you think, and all one needs to do is follow instructions and be careful, as sometimes amateur attempts at making chemical weapons and IEDs end poorly for the maker.

    This is just what WE know about. There could be many, many more that the secret service have handled.

    Well, they arrested her, but are hiding her identity.

    No assassination attempt is lame. This is why the scumbag who did this needs to be found and thrown in prison for life. No parole.
    The people who are protecting the President need to make the right decisions and succeed doing their jobs every time.
    A murderer needs to be successful only one time.

    I tester several out of a Grendel P-12, shot a small box of new week magazines.
    they all worked ,all detonated at about 2.5-3 inches into the magazines. I only bought 6 just for testing. I was actually afraid to carry them.

    She ground up castor beans and put them in an envelope. Unless Trump decided to scoop out the contents and eat them, there was no real danger. Castor beans are harmless unless you chew up a bunch and swallow them. I plant some every year to help keep the moles from coming into my yard from the farm next door. So, as assassination attempts go, it was pretty lame.

    Please allow me a question, just to be sure I understood you correctly: you are saying that we should give a pass to presidential wannabe assassins who are stupid, and prosecute and punish only those who are competent?
