Feds: 19-year-old plotted NYC knife attack in name of ISIS

NEW YORK (AP) — A 19-year-old New York City man has been arrested on allegations he told an undercover agent he wanted to commit a knife or bomb attack on behalf of the Islamic State group.

Awais Chudhary was arraigned Friday and order jailed without bail on federal charges of attempting to provide material support to the terrorist organization.

A message seeking comment was left with a public defender appointed to Chudhary, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan.

Authorities say Chudhary moved rapidly from planning to the verge of executing a knife attack at a marina near LaGuardia Airport.

They say he started texting undercover agents about the plot on Aug. 23 and over the next three days scouted the area and ordered a tactical knife online.

Chudhary faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

    Alright !!! I offer you excellent proof of WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED.....AND WHEN KNIVES ARE THEN OUTLAWED = ROCKS & BIG STICKS WILL BE NEXT. THEN, we will need to GO FOR MEASURES TO WHICH THE JAPANESE HAD TO EMPLOY WHEN CHINA SUBJUGATED JAPAN BEGINNING IN THE 1300's : Open hand/Foot fighting, Making war using adapted FARM IMPLEMENTS, or WALKING CANES, etc. YET = as you can SEE: by far THE MOST DESIRABLE OF THESE METHODS WILL BE TO = NEVER ALLOW OUR CIVILIANS TO PERMANENTLY BE DISARMED IN THE FIRST PLACE, because when OUR GUNS ARE GONE , THEY'RE GONE !!! It's THAT SERIOUS....
