No sir, he was arrested because he was with 6 people, 2 of which had full-auto machine guns, which are illegal. The 2 were convicted, but he wasn't. But he still had to deal with attorney fees and other costs in order to defend himself.

The judge let weapons charges stand against two members of the militia, including its leader, David Stone Sr. Both pleaded guilty to possessing a machine gun, a federal crime.

If they had the proper license it Would've been fine. It's legal to own machine guns and silencers in the good ole state of Indiana. If they were smart and did it the correct way none of this would have happened!!

Amazing responses from people wondering why anyone would need 40 firearms. I wish my collection was that large.

I do own a collection about half this size. I wonder if the peanut gallery would think of 20 guns? Or 15? How about 6?

It called "collecting" people...jeeze.

Good on him for getting his property returned. I just wonder how much damage the monkeys in the evidence room did.

My LGS was robbed a few years back, lost like 70 handguns, all but 2 were recovered and he had to sell them all at steep discounts because the wire ties Tacoma PD used to tag them scratched the snot out of all of the metal trigger guards.

Tack

I have had more guns than that at one time, but had to sell some due to economics, so I now have only a couple dozen. I know a guy who claims that he and his father have 360 guns between them. Many people collect guns for reasons of curiousity, nostalgia, investment purposes, or they just like a variety of guns. It makes no sense for a government to stipulate how many of what kind of objects you can possess. Some people have a few dozen cars, some collect salt-n-pepper shakers. But the media always tries to make it look like anybody who has more than one gun is a kill-crazed maniac. Strange world.

Default Guns

It really doesn't matter how many weapons a person has. You can own 1 or 1000 and that does not make you cuckoo because you own a lot of guns. The more guns the more protection you have. Live and let live.
