We're either going to need a good guy with 10,000 guns or 10,000 guys with 1 gun to oppose this madman.

We may also need a good guy with 500 chainsaws.

Saturday, [Chesterfield County] deputies arrested 51-year-old Brent Nicholson of Pageland after they found thousands – their best estimate is 7,000 to 10,000 – of handguns and rifles stacked at his house and in a nearby storage building. [...]

Deputies also found hunting crossbows; ammunition; taxidermed deer, elk and alligator heads; hunting mounts; tools; air compressors and more than 500 chainsaws – most of it, Brooks said, stolen.

Authorities believe the man either stole most of the guns himself or purchased the guns from other thieves whole stole them. They estimated the military division-sized arsenal was worth at least $1 million.

Sheriff Jay Brooks described the scene as something out of "that hoarders program."

  • Well, if he wasn’t using them, then it’s a positive, keeping all these guns out of the wrong hands. But I’m sure the NRA will make sure they get distributed to needy psychopaths right away.

    So, a question. If it had turned out that this person had actually purchased all these weapons legally would the shall not infringe folks defend that?

        No. I suppose not. It’s just that this sort of thing has really worn me down. Sometimes a rhetorical question is all I can muster.

    “There’s no evidence that he even used them,” [Chesterfield County, S.C., Sheriff Jay Brooks] Brooks said. “There’s no evidence that he was selling them – he just wanted them. His house looked like that hoarders program on TV.”

    “He just wanted them.”

    I wonder if the NRA and its sockpupp … erm, Republican politicians would include this hoarder among those people whose mental health should be a factor in allowing or not allowing them to own firearms.

    I’m going to guess no.
