    Default Phila. Police seize 50 guns from old man- no Red Flags laws needed

    As of 4pm, no charges have been filed.

    More than 50 guns, grenades, pipe bomb, liquid mercury found inside Philadelphia home
    PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Danny Kravitz says things are usually pretty uneventful in his neighborhood in the Bustleton section of Northeast Philadelphia.

    "It's a very quiet neighborhood," said Kravitz "You never have any trouble."

    But there seemed to be big trouble on Wednesday night, as police blocked off the 9700 block of Northeast Avenue. Neighbors like Kravitz wondered what was going on. It didn't take them long to find out that police had found a cache of weapons in the house just down the street.

    "They found more and more weapons throughout the house," said Chief Inspector Scott Small. "In the basement, every room, the attic, crawlspace, living room, dining room, bedrooms."

    Chopper 6 was overhead as officers began removing guns from the home.

    Investigators found more than 50 guns. One of them appeared to be an assault rifle. Police also found what appeared to be a pipe bomb, 1,000 rounds of ammunition, a jar of liquid mercury and ten grenades. All of the grenades inert, meaning that they did not contain explosive mechanisms.

    Philadelphia's Acting Police Commissioner says officers discovered the *reason why the man had so many weapons.

    "It appears that he could have been a broker or dealer of guns in the past," said Christine Coulter, acting Philadelphia Police commissioner. "I don't think it's a nefarious situation that the guns were there."

    Officers came to the house after the family of the 72year old man who lives there called police at about 4:30 pm saying they'd found a suicide note. The family was worried about the man's mental state.

    "I'm grateful for the family member that step forward and said there could be a problem here looking out for his father's interest," said Coulter.

    The man went to the hospital for a mental evaluation as officers complied with the family's request- to take the guns for safekeeping.

    Police were at the home for more than seven hours.

    The guns are in the hands of the police department's Forearms Identification Unit. They'll run the serial numbers on the guns to make sure none of them had been stolen or used to commit a crime.

    Now that neighbors do know what was inside, they're glad police did get that call to the unassuming house right down the street.

    "Thank God for that," said Kravitz. "Thank God."

    Wait, who doesn't have a jar of mercury? Geez, can't have any fun anymore.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    ”Thank God for that," said Kravitz. "Thank God."
    Thank god for what? All the firearms were completely legal and the rest seems to be inert items which obviously aren’t illegal.

    Meanwhile someone two blocks over probably has a human trafficked 10 year old chained to a pipe in the basement.

    What a ducking moron!

    1000 rounds to feed 50 guns. Post #2 Duke, go to the head of the class.
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    Red Flag at work here, all accusations were just that.

    I hope none of you guys have had a dustup with a lib family member because I have and I'm just waiting for my turn to make the news.

    Good luck to all,

    Mercury is for pikers; he should have married a chemistry teacher like I did

    Poor guy just lost $25 K to the PPD that he's never going to see again.

    Now that neighbors do know what was inside, they're glad police did get that call to the unassuming house right down the street.

    So for 50 years the guy lived down the street and nothing bad happened. What's the big deal, it's not like he had women chained up in the basement!
    Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.
