This is what we're up against guys...

I found this video on youtube, it looks like it could be old, but I've never seen it. I have got to say though what happened and the way the community reacted is just fucking chilling that the news media and people behave this way just a few hours drive from here. Just another reminder of what we're up against and how even the Fudds will become the enemy one day...

I just imagine what would happen if some of the legally owned collections I've seen turned up in NY. The hysterical media would try and claim they were trying to start WW3...

That was in 2010

Quote:"Vinny's a harmless person," family friend Christina Ortega said. "I grew up with him. He's actually one of my best friends. Everything was passed down through family or they are collectibles."

The Father got 21 months in jail and the mother and son 5 years probation

Quote:Despite their insistence that the weapons were unused heirlooms, the Siano clan pleaded guilty to third-degree weapon possession.

Interestingly, the man appeared at sentencing with his face beaten up from an "unrelated" mugging. If he had been able to carry he might not have suffered.

What I've found interesting is the following:

-The neighbor basically claims anyone who owns guns is a "troublemaker"

-The reporter takes the time to point out there is a school across the street...just to sensationalize...

-They claim "assault weapons" were seized, yet there are no pictures of them. Who here thinks they wouldn't have jumped at the chance to put up a photo of an AR if they actually owned one?

-They claim a "stash of pills" was removed from the home. The implication that they must be drug dealers, yet who doesn't have "a stash of pills" in their medicine cabinet. I must be super nefarious with a bottle of nyquil, advil and claritin in my bathroom!

-The reporter then ambushes the family member asking why he owned so many guns as if there is something wrong with that.

I really dont know how this so called journalist can even look herself in a mirror. What a fucking agenda pushing slime ball!

I actually think the neighbor was saying or at least thinking that the person that called it in was the trouble maker. And yes I saw the boston hat.

Looking at the firearms in the video.. looks like the family liked to trap/skeet shoot and collect old revolvers (maybe family heirlooms). Just goes to show how crazy f'd up NYC is.

All that was missing was some wailing middle eastern women when they panned over to the school. A school? Oh, the horror.


And yeah, the assault weapon claim is clearly bullshit, but it adds to the hype.

If you watch NY news (as we do) you see crap like this all the time. They hype up and sensationalize these incidents into something of sheer stupidity.

I remember seeing that one on the news, since then there have been more and the stories are just as hyped up. Tootie and I almost laughed ourselves to death over a story a few months back where they said 'a stockpile of ammo' and then showed 4 - 50 rounds boxes sitting on a table.

NY news is so over the top sensationalized it's not even news any more and I honestly believe they are doing it to keep NY residents scared and in their place.

All my neighbors know what my stash is because they've seen me drag it out of the house to put it in the back of cars and taxis to go on range trips.

And I have NRA stickers on my front windows, plus a ton of other decals (for the police department, alarm system, the local environmental club, etc).

I'm so glad that "gun panic" shit hasn't infected Philly.


We had one person in my neighborhood get arrested on a warrant for the cops to discover his arsenal, but the alarming part was one completely assembled pipe bomb and parts for other ones in the house which caused the cops to quickly make an exit and come back with the bomb unit.

The neighbors didn't mind all the guns, but the pipe bomb was the alarming part. "I don't want the foundation of my house moving" is what one of the adjacent neighbors said on TV.



We even have people here in my neighborhood who put up those "We Don't Dial 911" decals with the revolver on it.

Philly has a LOT of gun owners. They're more timid about being candid about what they own--most don't want others to know because they fear correctly that it will make their house a more attractive target for a burglary. Especially if you have thousands of dollars worth of hardware in your house.

For all the antis we have in Philly, they are far outnumbered by owners--that's if you include all the people who have just 1 firearm out of a SHTF necessity, and not other folks who are collectors and hobbyists.

That quote is so Philly right there lol.

It really amazes me the amount of ammo that constitutes a "stockpile" or an "arsenal". I dont think it's at all that unreasonable to think that anyone who is even a minor prepper or does any level of competition shooting at all probably has at least or in the neighborhood of 1k of each caliber they use regularly. I dont keep much 12ga though since the only one I have access to has like a 30" barrel and is pretty useless for clearing.

Ya know what really sucks about having a stockpile? All those .50cal ammo cans change pressure and different intervals.
