One of three men accused of building crude explosives and buying firearms to prepare for a violent confrontation with the federal government also wanted to shoot up the FBI after he was denied the ability to buy a semi-automatic rifle, the Charlotte Observer reports. 
The man was arrested, along with two others, and charged in federal court.
During brief testimony by an FBI special agent, Walter Litteral was accused of planning to drink a bottle of tequila before shooting up the FBI.
Litteral and others were afraid the U.S. government was planning to impose martial law after spotting military exercises in Gaston County in North Carolina.
Testimony was only given in Litteral’s case.
