Bad Guy With 10,000 Guns Arrested

Written by SK Ashby

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."
