    Just goes to show...... All don`t agree on much of anything. "Send a message!"
    How many times have all of us heard that. Maybe it makes the message sender fell better.

    Yeah the folks in question appear to be whackadoos.

    I do agree that local law enforcement could put the firearms and ammo to good use.

    Just my .02,

    1. God please don't let those people continue to reproduce.

    2. It is interesting they called it a stockpile and not a collection.

    3. You can't fix stupid.

    The problem with "messages" is that they can be interpreted a lot of different ways. My interpretation of this message is "we are elitist morons of the Hollywood variety".

    IIRC a finance measure introduced in Congress directs the .Gov to destroy the last 100,000 1911's stored at the CMP's.

    The measure was reputedly inserted by John McCain.

    Not the only guns getting scrapped - yet no mention of it here yet. Just some other guys collection that he didn't adequately direct disposal of gets a thread. The lesson here is that you never know what will happen to that rack of guns unless YOU take care of it while you can. He apparently failed. Take that to heart.

    Don't trust your Aunt Mabel to make a rational decision.

    I wonder if destroying the guns gets them some rax relief on their inheritance tax?

    I've known folks that have done some screw, legal, things to avoid taxes.

    Assuming some or most of the collection, it will be a shame but it is their property.

    They're obviously wealthy enough that destroying "millions of dollars" in assets doesn't phase them.

    Their inheritance, their decision. However, based on prior erroneous media escalation of just about everything, I'm hesitant to even believe the announced value. I'm really sad about what some aspects of this society have become, especially the inimical divide between the haves and have nots, where spokespersons have to make announcements for the engorged.

    I bet there is a family member or two that does not like what is happening to the guns, ammo and cash. Do any of you know of an entire family thaat agrees on anything?

    I hope that they will still have to pay estate taxes on them.

    This is good news. This will take money out of the Hoplophobes hands while increasing the rarity of any collection that THR members are holding. What a wonderful day for the person holding one of two known examples of a rare firearm when they find out the other one got destroyed. Time to go to auction.

    OldMac is right. I've just learned elsewhere that although the deceased's collection is mainly mil-surp, there was mil-surp and that there were some rare examples in it.

    It bothers me that these examples won't be saved.

    Of course they will. You don't think those do-right-daddies and do-right-mommas would want to be thought of as "hypocrites," do you?

    After all, that $250,000.00 being stashed with the "stockpile" of evil firearms, obviously became contaminated with the horrible disease, Gunitis."

    The money must be burned (at the stake) if they can arrange it properly.

    :eek:

    That last link is really old.

    Some updates since then -

    Just today, its being reported that his ex fiancé is now laying claim to the guns, ammo, and cars. She's saying she financed it all; forced to by physical abuse and threats that if she didn't, the secret govt would harm people she knows.

    She apparently owns quite a bit of real-estate rental property in the LA area. She had her property manager rent garages to store all the cars for him under the guise that they were for other secret govt people to be able to use.


    Both, the ex fiancé & her property manager have said they believed he was part alien / part human and work as a secret govt agent thwarting terrorism.

    The property manager also left her new husband of 1 year after meeting the dead guy. He says she drastically changed after meeting the dead guy just once. Maybe that was in his best interest.




    The lawyer in the OP for the family and the ex fiancés original (maybe still) lawyer have both represented celebrities such as Timothy Leary and Robert Downey Jr.


    The whole thing is bizzare.
