Learning assassination from books

Murder Suspect in Jo Cox Killing Bought Books From Nazi Group

    Thomas Mair, the suspect in the brutal murder of British Parliament member Jo Cox, reportedly bought books on how to make guns from an extremist group in the United States.
    According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit that fights hate groups in the United States, Mair bought a manual on how to make a homemade pistol from neo Nazi group the National Alliance. The Guardian has the scoop:
    He bought books that instructed readers on the “chemistry of powder and explosives”, “incendiaries”, and a work called Improvised Munitions Handbook. The handbook included detailed instructions on constructing a pipe pistol using parts available in DIY stores.
