Default Domestic terror statues, there are none

With 900 Current Domestic Terror Investigations, FBI Seeing an Uptick in Arrests in Such Cases




There is an uptick in US domestic terror arrests, according to a senior FBI official, who says that with nearly 25 arrests in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, it’s one of the “highest arrest tempo quarters in the last few years” related to domestic terrorism.


The FBI has approximately 900 open domestic terror investigations, the official added. These are separate from international terrorism investigations that, for example, involve plots related to ISIS and al Qaeda, including so-called “lone wolf attacks.”


Notably, there are not domestic terror statutes in the US that allow for specific domestic terror charges. Prosecutors use other violations — such as of weapons possession laws — to charge people accused of plotting domestic terror attacks.

I suppose it would be an specific definition of domestic terrorism. It seems all one has to do is own a gun to make the list, according to prosecutors.

OH!!! Just saw the misspell. I suppose the content didn't shed enough light to make up for it. Sorry about that.

MOD - If you could correct title to read Statute instead of Statue a lot of confusion will be averted. Thanks.
