Um, Maybe He Was a COLLECTOR?
Seems an electrician in Flushing, NY had just a few too many guns, according to this story:
A Queens electrician has been charged with keeping a powerful battery of weapons inside his Flushing home, including 69 rifles, pistols, shotguns and even an Uzi assault weapon, the Queens District Attorney’s Office announced yesterday.
Bruce Steinfelder, 55, had permits for only 44 pieces in his shocking arsenal – and has been slapped with weapons-possession charges that could net him up to 15 years in prison.
As others have said, WHY? he’s only got TWO HANDS. What’s the difference between having 44 guns and 69? (I know, I know, 25.)
Acting on a tip officers raided Steinfelder’s home on 58th Road last week and found the stockpile, a source said. Steinfelder allegedly had 51 pistols, four shotguns, six rifles and eight assault rifles, including the 9 mm Uzi. Some 25 of the weapons were unregistered.
A tip, eh? So nice to know that in the People’s Republic of New York where you apparently need a permit to take a crap that the informant system is functioning up to spec.
The 55-year-old is free on $100,000 bail.
A law-enforcement source said investigators are still trying to figure out what Steinfelder was doing with all the weapons.
See the title of the post, you morons.
I will not license. I will not register. Ever. Period.
Edited to add: In reference to “The Power To Tax is the Power to Destroy”, if Gov. Pataki’s plan goes through, Mr. Steinfelder would have been required to pay $100 for his gun license and $1,275.00 every five years for his 51 handguns.
Until, of course, they raised the $25/handgun rate, or made renewal annual.
