Asian beta-male-rager caught before he killed anyone

A Virginia Tech student was arrested Monday after police said he had an assault rifle and was trying to buy 5,000 rounds of ammunition.

Yunsong Zhao, 19, has been charged with illegal possession of an assault rifle while not being a US citizen, according to an arrest warrant obtained by CNN affiliate WSLS.

Police say Zhao had bought a former police vehicle — which still had police markings — and installed a special bumper to the car. The freshman student had also researched bulletproof vests, the document states.

That’s pretty interesting. He could have been the next Seung-Hui Cho. Maybe we need better vetting of student visas.

    The charge against Zhao is a Class 6 felony and carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

    A picture is a thousand words.

    Regarding student visas, there are plans to bill Indian and Chinese H1Bs where Trump’s wall can be built in exchange for an expedited green card.

    Mexico won’t pay for Trump wall, but these foreign tech workers would

      • Accutane?

        No, orange robe.

        As in “put one on.” Yes, I am advocating that certain males enter the monastic life. That way they could contribute to society without the pressure to succeed with women.

        Not a solution, you say? OK, so besides “Learn Game,” give me another.

        And if “Learn Game” is the only answer, I say we put forth a national program to teach Game. National security depends on it. Public safety depends on it.

      • Not a bad idea. It’s occurred to me.

      • gothamette, what occured to you? Monasticism?

      • Yes.

    Sounds like he was more of an Elliott Rodger fan.

  4. “Yunsong Zhao, 19, has been charged with illegal possession of an assault rifle while not being a US citizen,”

    Thats not a real charge

    Interesting that he is no longer enrolled. VTech kind of famously protected information Old Boy killer even though he was at that point dead and releasing his medical information would harm no one.

    It would be nice if in one the the frequent panics around these events, if in the hastily rushed through legislation in the wake is a repeal of FEPRA. That has to be one of the biggest tragedies since Title 9.

    • What is FEPRA – and yes, I did try to google it.


      January 31, 2018 at 12:00 PM

      • Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.


        January 31, 2018 at 3:03 PM

      • OK, thanks – that’s FERPA, & explains why I couldn’t find it.

  5. Ah, those Asians! With the superior intelligence and impeccable work ethic he no doubt possessed, I’m sure he would have racked up an impressive kill rate if he had not been caught. Of course, he real record for such achievement – like the records for so many difficult endeavors – still belongs (as it should) to Stephen Paddock, a sterling product of our heroic multi-millionaire class. Ayn Rand would be proud!

  6. Perhaps he’s a gun nerd who got carried away once immersed in gun friendly USA.

    Where did he get the money? Was he really in the states only 6 months? If so the story is even stranger.

    • His parents are probably rich. How else did he afford to study in the U.S. on a student visa?

      • If so rich why the bad skin?


        January 31, 2018 at 2:30 PM

      • Bad skin genes.

      • Nope don’t buy it. My son had bad acne and $20 copay to dermatologist cleared it up. Something is weird with this story.

      • I met a Chinese billionaire once. He looked like shit. But then we have Bill Gates.

        Someone was arguing that Chinese make themselves up better than Japanese, but I don’t buy it. Though apparently there is a north vs. south difference in China; I think Southern Chinese are supposed to be sloppier.

        In any case there’s no doubting Koreans are the best-looking. The surgery to give themselves round eyes is kind of tragic but really improves the girls’ appearance.


        January 31, 2018 at 11:07 PM

      • Asians in Asia tend to have very good skin. When they come to the West they get fat and develop bad skin. It’s a combination of genes and diet.

  7. Eastasia isn’t sending us their best either.

    • Actually, East Asian very much is sending their best who use their often illgotten Chinese money to jack up real estate prices in Western countries and fill up University spaces that would otherwise go to Americans.


      January 31, 2018 at 2:07 PM

      • It appears that the Chinese elites would rather live in a decrepit place in the Midwest instead of staying put in their homeland.

        What does this tell you? China as we all know is overcrowded, perhaps it’s also an unbearable sh!thole!

  8. A few college students freaking out over the course of a few decades isn’t really a compelling case for further ‘vetting’ student visas.

    Also, Cho was a US resident, he wasn’t here on a student visa.


    January 31, 2018 at 1:05 PM

    • A fair point.

      It is worth noting that Texas and other states have passed laws requiring their public colleges to automatically admit the top 10% or x% of the high school classes from the state. This has resulted in Texas’s top state U, the University of Texas at Austin to end up with 95% of the freshman class being Texans. The effect is that the foreigners end up at good or at least decent private institutions or low tier public schools like West Texas A&M which is not really much more than community college and can’t possibly be worth out of state tuition to attend.

      not too late

  9. Never waste a crisis.

    Too bad the legalists / credentialists are all in on immigration free for alls. China isn’t sending its best.

  10. Chinese students enrolling in 2nd-tier schools in the middle of nowhere has nothing to do with whether they do or do not want to escape their homeland. Rather, a Western degree– even one from a non-selective school– is a form of prestige that confers status on the parents.

  11. i doubt that this guy was planning to kill or hurt anyone. he probably just thought guns are cool. lots of prole white dudes buy old police cruisers. however, banning foreigners from owning guns is a good law, and we dont need any more chinese in this country than we already have, so glad we’re getting rid of him (i hope)

    • Yeah, it could just be that he was a police/military buff. In my younger days, I bought a military-style rifle because I thought it was cool.


      February 1, 2018 at 3:38 AM

    • Looking at this closer, I think this is likely true (but hard to say for sure).

      It’s not really normal to buy 5,000 rounds of ammunition at a time. This would cost you thousands of dollars. But you might get a discount if you did it, then use that ammo up over time.

      But Asians (I think especially Chinese) do seem to like guns. My city is roughly as Asian as the U.S. as a whole, but the handgun ranges are often 10-20% Asian. It’s almost always a small guy shooting a very big handgun.

      I never see blacks at the range, even when I used to shoot at a place that was kind of in the ghetto (mainly because their prices were very low, presumably due to rock bottom rent).

      I’ve never in my life seen a non-white shooting clays though. And I’ve probably shot clays about 5x more than I’ve ever shot handguns.


      February 1, 2018 at 10:25 AM

      • At the gun range where I go, on eastern Long Island, there’s some ethnic diversity, not a huge amount but some. More Asians and sometimes Latins than blacks.
        One thing to note is that blacks are more likely than people of other races to have criminal records and therefore be disqualified from gun ownership.
        Assuming Zhao had a 223 he could have gotten 5,000 rounds of ammo for as low as a thousand dollars. About the only cheap ammo today is 22lr, 223, 9mm, 7.62×39 and birdshot, with 223 being the cheapest except for 22lr.
