violentsalvation: That sounds like a store.


Indeed, given the presence of magazines and calibers not for the guns he has. He's probably some sort of illegal dealer.

I should note that I own more guns and ammunition than this guy. I own a gun in the correct caliber for every caliber I have in quantity. I have a few rounds that I've found at the range/elsewhere that I haven't bothered to dispose of yet*. Fewer 'scary' knives(though if you raid my kitchen knife drawer to raise the count...)

*No, I don't like random ammunition laying around. I'll collect it up, soak it in water for a few days, disassemble and toss it. And you know that if I'm so paranoid to dispose of other people's lost ammo, I heartily disapprove of 'celebratory gunfire' off into the air. Celebrate all you want at the range or farm into a proper berm.

loudboy: /If he fired it straight up it would hurt, but not kill. Mythbusters said so.


Just remember that mythbusters used a frame and level to achieve 'straight up', noting that it'd be rather difficult for a human holding a gun to get a precise enough 'straight up' to remove most of the danger. I doubt this guy was bothering that much, or sober for that matter.

Remember folks, if you can't get it done with the first 16 rounds the last one has your name on it.

First and foremost: Fired his gun randomly in the air? DUMBASS, and unsafe. Glad he got busted for that.

However - Arsenal? 2 pistols. Much of the ammo looks like it isn't even for those handguns. The dude sounds like a hoarder, what with the large amounts of random other crap, but not really that img1.fark.net, except for the fact that he seems to have forgotten how to safely handle his firearms.

/Heck, I have more firearms at home
//And more ammo - mostly 22LR though. Cheapest way to have a range day
///I'm not scary, promise

I was competing in USPSA / IPSC / IDPA matches for years. It was nothing for me to have 30,000 rds on hand when loading ammo for an upcoming match. Of course, I only have one machete. Maybe that's why they never came knocking.

Hunh... Glad they didn't make it to my basement...
Also, I only have two machetes. A cheap $6 machete I bought before i could afford a weed eater. After some time with a bastard file it worked well. Still does. It's kind of flimsy and mostly sucks but I keep it in my deck box for dealing with unruly plants. And because it's too damn fugly to keep in the house.
I picked up a Cold Steel Kukri machete this weekend to use clearing shooting lanes in some property I recently got permission to hunt. Still have to sharpen it a bit before I take it out and actually use it but so far it seems well built.

If you don't want the cops going through your gun safe and its contents plastered all over news for people to think you are a deranged lunatic, don't go around firing off guns in the air in a residential neighborhood.

Birnone: Two handguns is an arsenal now? I have zero guns so I'm very close to having an arsenal, yay me!


One pistol, one shotgun, 200 rounds of 9mm, and about a dozen shotgun shells was described as an "arsenal" in one news story I read. I use up more ammo than that on a single trip to the range. I typically bought the ammo in bulk boxes of 500 to save money (and I typically bought 2 or 3 boxes at a time). I expect to be described as some kind of "lone anarchist militia member" if they ever search my apartment. Especially after they find the swords, daggers, and other bladed objects.

So some gangsta walked by and popped a couple of shots off at a rival's car and this poor guy is immediately accused of shooting his guns in the air?

Either that or the cops haven't told the media the details of the raid, so the reporter went with what he had.

That is an "arsenal"? Just snoop around Texas and you'll see what an arsenal is. Not to mention what I have, and I'm not really a gun-nut.

When i was in high school me and my buddy arranged to have a 1 1/2 hour lunch break so we could check our trap lines. Depending on the day we would have at least two guns, a bat, some traps, and even some dead animals in my car. Back then it was no big deal. I'm not sure if you could even bring the bat to school anymore. Probably not a good idea to have friends and family in the Michigan Militia either anymore...(yeah yeah i grew up redneck)

I've seen enough mythbusters (maybe 5 episodes) to know their testing methods are bunk and anything but scientific.

I know all the gun nuts want to immediately cry about this shiat, but this sentence explains it: Michael Millazzo, 53, of Shore Blvd. in Astoria, was arrested by cops investigating reports of shots fired in the air in front of his home on Aug. 26.

He fired his gun off into the air, in a residential area, and the police executed a warrant to search. This is the exact jackarse you guys should be lambasting for giving real gun nuts a bad name.

First thing I was ever taught about handling a gun, never point it at something you don't intend to kill.

The article says that they found illegal weapons, handguns and machetes. Okay, Queens might be one of those areas that has a draconian, arguably unconstitutional ban on handguns, but machetes??? How are those illegal to own? This may be the first time I have ever heard about the illegal possession of a machete.

I'm guessing it was the brass knuckles that were illegal. According to wiki New york has banned them.

I'm a gun nut, but I am also not defending this guy. He's the guy who should not have guns. Guns are a responsibility, if you don't use them safely and responsibly, you should lose to your right to them. When you accept gun ownership, you must accept the responsibility that you are holding a tool that can end someone's life, and take that seriously and not treat it as a toy. I put his fool into the same category as those people who claim to have shot someone accidentally because they were cleaning their loaded gun and it went off (maybe they and I have the wrong definition of cleaning a weapon, because when I do it, I take the gun apart after I've cleared the chamber). The right to free speech, the right to bare arms isn't just a blank check to allow us to say what we want and do with guns as we want and then use the constitution as the excuse to get away with those actions. The rights laid out in the Bill of Rights does grant us wonderful freedoms, freedoms that I would hate to see go away. But they also come with the requirement that we take responsibilities for those actions. You're free to say what you want about Romney or Obama, but you must also take responsibility for what you say. Say something blatantly false about either one of them and expect to defend yourself or face being called an idiot or worse by your audience. You are free to own a firearm in this country, but you must take responsibility for what you do with that firearm. You can't point it into the air and fire out two rounds to scare people. And yes, I am in favor of the second amendment and support those who fight for it's existence, I am also in favor of people who refuse to treat that right responsibly to be stripped of it.

It's hard to blame him. The last time he had to open fire on someone, it was a 7-foot lunatic swinging a broadsword in an alley at night - and he ended up spitted on the damned thing, because he couldn't protect himself.

Uisce Beatha: Mythbusters also said jumping on a grenade wouldn't save other people nearby, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary, so take their safety advice with a hearty grain of salt.


I don't remember seeing that one. I've seen a lot of mythbusters, but the way some of their episodes are available, arranged, etc... I'm not surprised that I've missed a lot of myths. Not having cable TV I tend to be a season or two behind anyways. Have to see it on Netflix, their site, etc...

OgreMagi: One pistol, one shotgun, 200 rounds of 9mm, and about a dozen shotgun shells was described as an "arsenal" in one news story I read.


I remember the scare tactics where they busted a couple people with 'MORE THAN 500 ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION!!!'. It was a walmart 'value pack' of 550 rounds of .22lr. Also 'high capacity 10 gauge clips' - reading other sources found that they were 30 round magazines for a ruger 10/22 (also .22lr). I have a couple of them - they're so crappy I get higher rates of fire from the stock 10 round rotary magazines from ruger. Not including load time.

They'd also have a field day with me - a couple swords (mounted to the wall proudly demonstrating that I'm a geek), good number of pocket knives, a few hunting knives(yes, I've hunted, killed and eaten deer). I even have a few automatic knives*!

I have lots of ammunition, because I can get it 50% cheaper per round if I buy in bulk(IE 1k+ per caliber, 10k+ per order). I tend to collect actions(lever, bolt, semi, blowback, recoil, etc...). At this point I have a gun for pretty much every legal purpose you could put guns to. Hunting? .30-30, .30-06, .300 WBY covers almost all north american game. .30-30 is good for deer in brush situations. The .300 WBY covers longer ranges and bigger game such as moose. The '06 is between the two, much easier on the shoulder than the wby. I also have a .223 with a bull barrel if I ever want to go varmint hunting.

The circumstances can mitigate - for example, I own a handful of knives, a kukri, two machetes, two swords, one boar spear, two bows, at least 72 arrows, a pellet rifle, and until recently, a service revolver. Could be construed as an "arsenal", unless you knew that my wife and I are SCA members, and her dad used to be a county sheriff.

However, this guy does sound a bit... overencumbered, shall we say...

Ok, so he discharged a weapon into the air within city limits. That appears to be a Class A misdemeanor in New York.

He also had an additional firearm, bladed weapons, and 10,000+ rounds of ammo.
So? Is there additional information I'm missing which indicates he is otherwise unfit to own these weapons?

Maybe living in Texas for so long has jaded me, but I'm not seeing the big deal here. Charge him appropriately for discharging the weapon, lecture him sternly about firearms safety, and call it a day.
