What makes a serious threat?

TPM notes a recent arrest.
Two men, John Iannucci, 38, and Jessup Bowllinger, 27, were arrested Tuesday in New Haven, CT when they were found driving with a pipe bomb, two shotguns, various bomb-making materials, ammunition, a can of propane and SWAT uniforms. One had apparently been arrested for bomb making earlier this year and was awaiting trial.

Here's our report.

Hmm...pipe bomb? Guns? More materials for bombs? And uniforms (maybe with armor)?

If they were more foreign sounding, I think this would be breaking news on the cable news already. How many white guys are being caught with weapons and explosives, and it just isn't news? Seriously.
