Inert stuff like that are used for decorations in gun stores, army surplus stores, etc. These people being interviewed are either ignorant or idiots.

I would disown my kids/family if they did that to me. Sounds like some virtue signaling snowflake threw his or her father under the bus.

I'd rewrite my will immediately donating everything to the NRA or Zoo.

I’d put a value on all of the stuff taken, then re-write the will bequeathing all of the confiscated items to the dips who turned him in. All other assets go elsewhere.

The hyperbole used in the reporting of this story really angered me. Phrases like "could be used to start a small war" "weapons of war" "machine guns" "explosives" etc. And the neighbors trying to paint the Vietnam vet as "strange" "angry" ....unbelievable. It was a curio and relic collection along with the ammo to enjoy them. Oh and my God! There were a couple of swords!

I am sick of this crap!

I always laugh when they act like a person with a dozen rifles is somehow more dangerous than someone with just a few. A person only has 2 hands.

So, "big bird" said that his neighbor was a little bit off?

The Veteran's neighbors are snowflakes.

My children ain't interested in my firearms (that got lost in a boating accident) and my military collection I will pass everything on to my Calguns friends.

One person at a time. Slow but sure. One here, one over there.

Relatives, neighbors, co-works, it makes no difference, the result is the same.

Read about it, shake our head and bit-ch, until the next one. Hopefully it's not you or me.

Respectfully

I had this happen to me last year....twice!!

Got into a disagreement with my HOA about them not going out for competitive bids. I saw a lot of bs going on and called it out.

Boom...they tried to get an TRO but it never happened. Then they reported I was acting weird threatening people at a board meeting and terrorizing the neighborhood. The jerk even prepared a dossier of my Calguns posts and delivered it to Ocsd. I had to attend a hearing. As soon as the sheriffs found out who the accuser was they apologized and let me go. I used to take the jerk to the range and let him use my tools - he claims he's former CIA and owns a broom handle given to himmler by hitter, just crazy crap.

Yiu never know who's going to try to rat u out so keep your collection private as possible. Yea scumbags are everywhere.

If those old mortar and bombs weren't demilled those deputies would not have hand carried them outside and laid them on display like that.

The (almost) adult version of "show and tell" for the media so they can feed the masses, advancing "see something, say something".

One more down, a few million to go. Fear not, it will go a lot faster with "Red Flaggers" in almost every neighborhood.

A note to us seniors over 65 with more than a few military weapons... Don't continuously tell the neighbors' kids to get off your lawn or out of your flower beds.... The accuser said he was "mean" to their kids...

Adjust your self image.

These days an Honest gun owner, no image? If you have ONE gun and ONE bullet you are seen as a Criminal waiting to happen. Maybe clear record, but you are basically a scum-bag, gun nut, psycho.

There is one just like them sticking out of the ground in front of the local VFW hall here.

In the 33+ years I have lived here, nobody has wet their pants or called 911 about it.

I could not have said it better myself. I would dis-own my family and move to another state. They made this man an outlaw.
