She said she had planned to cook salsa with her son on Sunday and was making preparations when she got a call from a television reporter, looked out the window and saw that her pickup was gone.
She said she then checked the locked safe where she kept her guns, all legally purchased and owned, and found that they were also missing.
Janice Williams said she kept the guns because "eventually, I think we're going to be caught up in a revolution." But she said she had told her son many times that "he didn't have to be on the front lines."
She said she had no explanation for his actions.
"Something snapped," she said. "His life is over. He will go back to prison for the rest of his life. Our lives are over."
How long will it be until someone just like Byron Williams, convinced by Megyn Kelly's hysteria over fake Black Panthers and Beck's mourning for a dying America and Rush's constant fulminations that the end is truly nigh, snaps and takes some shots at someone higher up the food chain than members of local law enforcement?
You want to watch the country tear itself apart? Have someone make an attempt on Obama's life, and miss -- and hit Michelle or the girls instead.
