Arsenal of Weapons Found in Rockford

Federal investigators say Michael Breit's apartment at Sunnyside Drive housed many firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, black powder, pipe bomb instructions and the makings for pipe bombs, but no finished pipe bombs.

A writing entitled "revolutionary strike force", which outlines a plan to kill 1,500 people at a presidential caucus, was found. Also found was a recipe for dynamite and a writing full of threats against society, a list of current and former federal officials and other public leaders and political figures.

Next to each of these names was the word "marked", which police believe meant "marked to die" because they were liberal and supported anti-gun efforts.
