BELVIDERE | A Blairstown Township man charged with unlawful possession of 28 guns, including assault rifles, was arraigned Monday in state Superior Court.

Paul E. Waller, of Cedar Lake Road, is charged with possessing weapons ranging from a BB gun to assault rifles.

Authorities aren't releasing details about the circumstances of Waller's arrest Friday or why he allegedly owned so many weapons.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman said the case remains under investigation and declined further comment.

Waller is charged with three complaints of failing to register assault weapons, according to court records.

He is also charged with illegal possession of an MAK-90 7.62-caliber assault firearm and a Russian-made SKS-45 assault firearm.

The other charges include illegal possession of two double-barreled shotguns, two 12-gauge shotguns and a Browning rifle.

Waller did not return a message left with a woman who answered the phone at his home Monday.

Well, the subjects of New Jersey can sleep easy tonight.... :rolleyes:

Chances are pretty good both of these were semis (and thus not assault weapons). Whether or not the owner had legal magazines is another issue, and they could nail him on that.

Just our of curiosity, is there an integer value greater than 0 that is an acceptable number of firearms to own in NJ?

Gezz they even nailed him for possession of a BB gun.OMG they better hang the man owning an illegal BB gun.
Stories like this make you wonder if this is still the USA.

Fer Gawd's sake, man- 28 guns is the FIRST rack in my playroom! Give it a few more years, tho, and that dateline could be anywhere in the US. Loved the double barreled assualt shotguns.

:eek:
scary stuff. Illegal "double barrel"? Under 18"? Or do you have to register all long guns in New Jerky?

I would be interested to know what constitutes the phrase "unlawful possession of" - Does that mean they were cut down ( stocks or barrels ), or modified, or was it that he was a convicted felon and wasn't allowed to have the weapons in the first place?
