    I smell something dumb in this raid, if this guy was selling/making guns to criminals for profit or something, whats with all the fudd/ancient stuff? (it's literally 50% of the piles).

    This is probably some rich, old guy that someone didn't like.... and they made up a "cool story bro" thing about him to ruin his life. [angry]

    what pisses me off is that they discard the packing boxes (in the white truck) and just dump the guns willy nilly on the ground like a pile of shit.

    Right or wrong, it's someone's property and those scumbags have no respect or care. Those are not shitty trunk guns, some nice finishes there. Dumping them in the pile is just hurtful. Hopefully the heros can go home without breaking a fingernail, tonight.

    But notice they always put a blanket/sheet down first like they care about the finish.

    You won't find any in that pile, just some semi-auto carbines.

    Notice how the only things even vaguely resembling "scary black guns" were sorted out for separate display.

    Almost everything else is blued steel and wood. Lots of .22 rifles and revolvers, and no cheap junk to be found.

    Well, until they get finished with the, that is... they'll be junk right up until they go in the shredder and become scrap.

    I cringed when I saw the Pythons and the other old Colt revolvers on the pile.
    The collector certainly had good taste, that's what I call a mature collection.

    I wonder how many will leave the property without making it onto an inventory list.

    Seeing the guns there it certainly doesn't seem like this was a gun runner. It looks like a rich collector who has moonbat neighbors.

    Cruel world. Those will all probably be destroyed or taken home under the table and sold to criminals.

    Wouldn't it be nice if instead they were lotteried off randomly to citizens? Or raffled for charity.

    That 6" blued Python in the front is a $2300 by itself. Just tossed there like some piece of shit. How can you work for the ATF and have so little respect for those beautiful tools?

    Moonbats neighbors confirmed by article:

    Neighbors were appalled to hear about the discovery and arrest.

    "I would never, ever think anybody would be wanting to pack so much in this neighborhood. It scares the wits out of you," said Rabbi Chaim Mentz. "What does my next door neighbor have? What does your next door neighbor have?"

    have to think there has to be a least something questionable going on if ATF involved. erpo would have been just local or state police right?

    best case scenario is this rich Fudd gets cleared of all wrong doing and sues moonbat neighbors into the ground when his collection is 'lost' in police inventory.

    Separate because each one will be a separate count of AWB violation in the list if charges.

    Its bullshit to see them toss a persons private property in a pile with total disregard for damaging what are obviously a large number of very valuable firearms

    Amazing that your neighbor had all these guns and never shot you, not even once. Almost like it was none of your business, or mine. So sad how anti freedom some people can be, especially some people that should know better based on their history.

    I’m not generally a covetous person.

    But that’s a stash I dream about. That’s an Arsenal! And it is awesome!

    "Lots of guns" = enough of an excuse for ATF to be involved.

    Also all they had to do was have one guy make noises about him breaking a federal law, and then that basically turns into a full circus at that point.

    The article says "anonymous tip" but my guess this guy had an associate that was in trouble with ATF, and he sold his friend down the river to walk. ATF does this
    all the time with people.

    It'll be interesting to find out, when the dust settles on this, if the guy did anything wrong WRT federal law.
