Why should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev not be charged with WMD - Weapons of Mass Destruction?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the remaining living Boston Bomber suspect, is apparently being charged with using WMD.

WMD - weapon of mass destruction, is a term that generally means nuclear, chemical or biological weapons. For example, when the U.S. Government gave the aboriginal Americans pox infected blankets, that was a biological weapon and WMD.

But is a gunpowder bomb in a pressure cooker?

Even U.S. Code says: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2332a (c)

Definitions.— For purposes of this section—

...

(2) the term “weapon of mass destruction” means—

(A) any destructive device as defined in section 921 of this title;

(B) any weapon that is designed or intended to cause death or serious bodily injury through the release, dissemination, or impact of toxic or poisonous chemicals, or their precursors;

(C) any weapon involving a biological agent, toxin, or vector (as those terms are defined in section 178 of this title); or

(D) any weapon that is designed to release radiation or radioactivity at a level dangerous to human life; and So nuclear, chemical or biological.

So why is this concerning, charging Tsarnaev with using WMD?

Because in recent years, the anti-gun lobby has worked to confuse guns as WMD, as a propaganda strategy, and they are now using the fact that gunpowder was allegedly used in the Boston Bombing, to make the pressure cooker bombs, as a reason to ban or regulate civilian access to gunpowder, as part of a greater agenda to ban all civilian access to firearms.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev can, and should be charged with many things, including several first degree murders ( though I don't think the People's Republic of Massachusetts has the death penalty ) but he should not be charged with any WMD crimes, as that could harm the rights of the rest of us, which I suspect is the intention of the left, in this.

Please make your opinion known to the prosecutors in this case, as well as to your government officials, that the term "WMD" should not be debased in this matter, as part of a left wing strategy to further erode our human rights to keep and bear arms!

Good point - give them 10 years and the SOB will probably have a Boston parade in his honor on Hasan Day.

Most \likely, future plans for the Boston Bomber will be handled just as Hasan the Ft. Hood murderer.  He is sitting in jail, wearing the uniform of who he claims to be infidels and collecting money from the Army, per Eric Holder.  Never has a court date been set and holder calls it a workplace incident.  Perhaps the Boston Bomber will receive the same cushey treatment and be charged only for breaking into a boat without owners permission.

Believe it's called doublespeak and it's the language of disinformation and political correctness. Problem is that it has little to do with either truth or reality.

In answer to the question of why Tsarnaev is being charged with the use of a WMD, "section 921" as referenced in the law you quoted includes (among other things) the following definition:

"(4) The term “destructive device” means—

(A) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas—
(i) bomb,
(ii) grenade,
(iii) rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces,
(iv) missile having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce,
(v) mine, or
(vi) device similar to any of the devices described in the preceding clauses;"
There's more to the term "destructive device" than that (such as exceptions for pyrotechnics, etc. that would otherwise fall under the definition), but the point is that the law you referenced specifically allows for any kind of bomb or grenade to be considered a WMD.

They use the tactics of Fabian Socialism - to wear us down slowly over time, by attrition. It's working.

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” - Adolf Hitler

Excellent point, Jane, about the end goal the left has in mind.  The left is always like that; I wish our side could do the same.
