    I was watching Fox on Tuesday and they had a brief video of a "cache" of weapons found somewhere in the north eastern part of the US. I didn't catch the exact location but they had an aeriel view of quite a few guns laid out on a plastic tarp on the lawn. I have searched ever since and have not found any more about it at all.
    Did anybody else see this?

    I saw this too, while I was waiting at the pharmacy. I think it was in Massachussetts. I came here expecting to see someone posting about it, but no one did until now. I couldn't hear the story very well because the pharmacy was pretty loud. I couldn't hear them say what law he had broken.

    I don't quite follow the story - is owning guns just illegal in MA? Seems like they take it for granted that everyone would know exactly what his crime was?

    So exactly what law was broken? Possessing some guns? He had "over 1000 rounds of live ammunition". In my neighborhood that would be a modest supply.
    He also had a "generator and some gasoline". What?
    Has Massachusetts gone crazy?

    Yet another Heller-based challengeable case.


    Idiotic leftist journalist #1: "Hey I'm doing a story on some gun nut - what's the difference between a "cache" and an "arsenal" of guns?"

    Idiotic leftist journalist #2: "Hmmmm, I guess an arsenal is more than 2 weapons, and a cache is more than 5 weapons."

    I am still scratching my head on this too, 1,000 rounds, heck, I ORDER ammo at that rate sometimes. The only thing that might get flagged is a Sawed off shotgun.

    I guess it's the "amassing" that's illegal in Massachusetts. I can't imagine what else he's done wrong, unless that shotgun proves to be too short. What a place to live.

    Why do the socialists always take over the best vacation spots?

    What exactly is a cache?!?

    Is the 20 guns I have in my safe considered a cache?

    Why do you never see stories about a cache of baseball cards or cars?

    Bear in mind that the sawed off shotguns could have been 16.5 inches too, remember this is the media we're talking about. Most of that same stuff has been in my collection over the years. I can remember as a kid playing with an inert morter shell.

    Yeah, my first thought was to feel bad for the guy because he had so little ammunition. I only have 3 guns and I have more ammo than that.

    Yah, I don't get what he's charged with.

    Austin Powers quote of the day, "He had over 1,000 rounds of live ammunition..."

    My first thought was that I can never go to MA. because my "cache" is bigger than the guy in the story.

    Where I live it's not really a crime to own a lot of guns or be a borderline nutcase.

    In fact you can be a full blown nutcase as long as you don't hurt anyone.

    If you look at the pictures, they even have a little desktop cannon on the mat... :rolleyes:

    The guy has more than I have atleast, I hate seeing them spread out on a table or a tarp and think, wow... I have way more than that. :eek:

    I'm confused. Why would he get in trouble for a gun collection? That is odd.

    Do the cops know that you can buy guns at a gun shop? Why are they wondering where he got the guns?

    A belive in the state of Mass you have to register all your firearms, and he did not register them.

    In the lands of free america, the only thing that might be illiegal is the shotgun, depending how much it was cut down.

    Did anyone see the supposed sawed off shotgun? I ask because the media is notorious for its gun ineptitude. What if the stock was sawed-off, or the barrel AND the stock? Would this not be legally defined as a pistol? Or am I wrong on this?

    If this is the case, the only law he has broken is buying weapons without a permit.

    I got it - the story says his wife got a restraining order against him, and that in MA a restraining order usually means you have to turn in any guns you own. It's explained in the sidebar

    Strikes me that what started it all was the one he had on his person that he said he didn't. Once the LEs had a little PC on him, Katy bar the door.

    Maybe if he had been honest about that to begin with, none of this would have happened. But then IANAL and especially don't know anything about the law where he is at.
