I will be so glad when the federal government sentences Patrick Stein, Gavin Wright and the other member of their group to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, ever. These three individuals planned to carry out a terrorist attack against a group of people who never done anything at all to them and were never a threat to them.

I also hope that they are charged with ethnic intimidation and civil rights violations. They are terrorists and therefore should be treated as such.

The U.S. needs to get tough on domestic terrorist groups and hate groups, neo-Nazi movements and the KKK should be placed on a terror watch list and should be treated in the same manner as foreign terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda. They should be banned and have all their assets seized and funding to these groups should be made illegal.
