Way to go there Tin Stars, sleep soundly in your beds tonight, there's one more law abiding citizen in jail tonight for exercising his 2A rights. Effin' RETARDS!!!!!!

The reason I say this is for a reason, had this man been a convicted felon and unable to legally aquire a gun, they'd have said so in the sound bite. Violations of parole etc, they'd have brought it up. They didn't bring it up, so it would appear to me that this man had purchased all of his guns IAW the laws of the state he resides in. How is it that they were able to go in there and confiscate his guns?

There has to be more to this story, cuz all I've heard so far is total BS.

Well, that definitely puts me on their watch list as I never buy just one. After my trip to J&G, when I bought 14 at once, I'm surprised they haven't beaten down my door yet. 8) 8)

Love the damned sensationalism, "if these guns had fallen into the hands of criminals it could have been horrific"...shit. Well, what if a grenade, LAW, or tank ended up in the hands of criminals? If we're going to make crap up, why not go all the way? They are basically saying that anyone with a gun may be willing to deal with criminals to make a quick buck. Total crap! Law abiding citizens have guns for criminals alright...but not for the reasons the press likes to portray... :roll:

Maybe they've added more since you watched the video, but right at the beginning they said he has been barred from purchasing firearms since 1975. The Inherently suspicious comment is a bit over the top.

If he was barred from buying firearms then NJ has problems running checks. It appears he purchased them legally. Why did they allow the to go through. Something is flawed somewhere. The inherently suspicious part made me laugh.

PRNJ - For those of you not from the East is on par with NY, Kali, and other such places.
Hollow Points are banned in NJ. What kind of sense does that make?

I agree, the bs meter is off the scale on this.

about like that guy in kali that was arrested (solely) for posesing 200-odd legally purchased weapons and over 1,000,000 rounds of ammo. he committed no crime other than incorrect storage of black powder (he had 11 pounds and the limit is 10). but they still seized everything.

I don't know the story on the Kali guy, but someone had to have fabricated some sort of story and then NARC on him for them to show up and find out he had 11 pounds of BP instead of 10 pounds.

From the story, it would appear that there is a limit to the number of guns you can have in NJ. He reached that limit in 1975.
He should have gotten a Collectors Permit or some such to keep it legal. That could have kept him out of trouble.

I hope he gets a REALLY GOOD Lawyer & get's all his weapons back & the charges dropped.

Even if he gets his weapons back, they may be rusty, banged around in a evidence room somewhere with scratches and dings in any wood and metal surfaces, marks put on them for the cops internal book keeping.

this is why I never post images of weapons or list what I own. Period. I wish more people on the forum would stop listing things...
you all know I am a somewhat paranoid freak who believes in privacy.
OK to talk about them, i suppose, but I don't list things anywhere.

There should be no limits on numbers. Can you only exercise your right to free speech or practice a religion a certain number of times...? right to silence, etc?
things like this NJ dude's problems are the reason I am a weirdo.
