Default How Many Guns Are Too Many?

I am still cleaning the drool from the keyboards, mouse and the computer screen at this large home collection:

How Many Guns Are Too Many?

This is from WTVO News, watch the video that is embedded:

UPDATE: Police Seize Over 300 Guns from Rockford Home - MyStateLine.com

(Rockford) -- More than 300 firearms were removed from this home on Auburn Street. It's a scene residents say they aren't accustomed too.

Coley Woods lives across the street from the home. He says, "I'm thinking it's an accident or something, but I look over and I see them with all them rifles."

"It's just un-real to see this many guns involved a regular residential neighborhood," says concerned resident McArthur Tennin.

Police were called to this home just after two this morning. They arrived after neighbors called about a burglary. When police got inside the home, they found empty shell casings and a variety of weapons, from shotguns to rifles.

Deputy Police Chief Greg Lindmark says, "some were loaded, some weren't some appear to be operable because they're old and then some to be fairly new."

Police say a 67 year-old man owns the home and the weapons. He is a legally registered gun owner.

"At the current time we're taking the firearms for safe keeping as evidence until we can further investigate this," says Deputy Chief Lindmark.

Neighbors say even though the weapons may be legal, they still pose a security threat to their neighborhood.

Woods' says, "Even if he's a registered gun owner or not, that just seems like its too many rifles."

Shortly after police arrived, the home was condemned and the guns were only part of it.

Deputy Chief Lindmark says, "When the police got to this residence they found a tremendous amount of garbage and different items stacked from the floor to the ceiling."

Police will run checks on all of the weapons to see if any were stolen or involved in any crimes.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, police haven't charged the homeowner. Police say he's out of town and they're still trying to get in contact with him. Police also haven't made any arrests in the burglary.

There is no such thing as too many guns!

"Neighbors say even though the weapons may be legal, they still pose a security threat to their neighborhood." How so?? I bet nobody would dare break in his house. LOL

From the video, sounds like the individual was a massive pack rat of things and not just guns either, i.e. trash, junk, etc. The security threat was the weapons could have ended up in the wrong hands.

Did you see the amount of boxes the guns were stored in? Alot of boxes!

I would love to see that collection!

"Too many guns" is ALWAYS two more than you currently own.

I hope that homeowner has a complete list of serial numbers and makes and models. It would be TOO easy for some of these guns to get MISPLACED.

Sounds like the nieghbors are a bunch of libtards!

I run into that every day around here, but that's because I open carry. I find it rather amusing when you walk into a room and all conversation stops when people realize I have a gun on my hip.

If the guns are safe, in the hands of a responsible person and not a criminal, I don't see why someone can't have as many as they want.
***In this case, this person seems like a hoarder (according to the report of floor to ceiling junk in the home), but that doesn't necassarily make him dangerous.
Because I don't know him personally, I can't make a judgement call. Then again, it's not up to me.
The neighbors' remarks DO make them sound like idiots.

That is absolutely insane!!!! He was legal in his ownership and now his posessions are being taken. There is no limit on gun ownership and without any good reason(aka, he's a terrorist or convicted felon) he should be able to own 16546516543494635413 guns.

I can't even begin to describe how angry this makes me
If you're legally allowed to have firearms in this country, last time I checked I could have as many as I darn well pleased!
