    Lake Superior State University student Lucas Gerhard is facing terrorism charges after he posting picture with his new AR-15 on Snapchat with a message for “snowflakes.” Another student objected that she felt threatened by the posting and ultimately the police arrested Gerhard..."
    20-year-old Gerhard, who faces up to 20 years in prison for posting a picture of his rifle on social media, was denied his motion to dismiss charges on June 11 in a Chippewa County court in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.
    Gerhard is charged with false report or threat of terrorism. The university says there was a threat posted on social media, and a resident assistant reported it to campus public safety.

    In August 2019, Gerhard posted the picture with the caption: “Takin this bad boy up, this outta make the snowflakes melt, aye? And I mean snowflakes as in snow.” It was a private chat room but someone showed the picture to another student who reportedly had had conflicts with Gerhard in the past. The family says that she was the only complaint.
    He spent 83 days in jail before being released on bond."
    Gerhard is an Eagle Scout and his father is a retired Marine.

    Why is it illegal to post a photo of you with a weapon on social media?

    I don't get it.
