One Handgun Arsenal Police Bust In Queens NY

Yes, 1 real handgun… This guy is a menace!

Behold the full article.. it’s pure gold.  Here are some highlights:

Michael Millazzo, 53 was collared early Friday morning and cops recovered two handguns, 26 magazines, 10,537 rounds of ammunition, 32 machetes, 60 knives, 16 air pistols, an air rifle, seven tasers, eight brass knuckles, nine batons and 10 handcuffs, upon executing a search warrant.

Wow…. just wow.  I love how they were so specific with the round count too.  LOL 10,537.  I’m surprised they didn’t confiscate other dangerous things to lay on the table, like kitchen knives, bleach, screwdriver etc..

Like a couple of the guys over at SayUncle mentioned, that Beretta 92 bastardization and its magazine look suspect… most likely not even a real firearm.  So in other words this guy’s arsenal only consists of one Glock.

The door to Millazzo’s apartment was plastered with military and weapons-related stickers including ones that read “Member, National Rifle Association,” “Proud to Have Served in the U .S. Armed Services,” a bull’s-eye target

Stickers!  You don’t say?  There’s a telltale sign on a twisted individual right there.

It was not clear what he intended to do with the weapons.

Who the hell writes these articles?  Sure NY has terrible gun laws, but just because someone breaks some firearm related possession law, or is a felon and owns a firearm, it doesn’t automatically mean they have ill intentions.  Perhaps they think being able to defend themselves is worth the risk of possibly being caught.  The audacity!

Thoughts?  How many of you guys have “arsenals” according to this?  Never mind stupid question… :P

I think you overestimate the intelligence of these people Mike. The whole point behind gun laws is the fundamental belief that someone who buys or gains possession of a gun is is doing so for some ill purpose.

On another note, why were “32 machetes, 60 knives, 16 air pistols, an air rifle, seven tasers, eight brass knuckles, nine batons and 10 handcuffs” confiscated? Is it because there’s the potential they could be used in a crime? Last time I checked that shit ain’t illegal. Hell, why not confiscate his penis while they’re at it, that could be used in a crime after all.

Probably is illegal. He lives in New York City. This is the same place that banned trans fats and is set to ban soft drinks over 16 oz.

Man only has the two arms, a few hundred extra knives don’t make him any more dangerous than if he had a dozen.

I like the first photo 15 handguns, 2 fully auto assault concealable machine guns. I wonder how many will end up being airsoft. Although airsoft probably is illegal in NY.
And i too dont get the problem with the other stuff, they probably took his pots and pans too.
Side note, i probably have less than 300 rounds altogether right now so not an arsenal, nor a stockpile, maybe a cache, which is usually mispronounced as cash-ay by most moronic news folks.

The ‘Beretta’ is a blank firer – a starting pistol for god’s sake.

Yeah, it’s an Ekol Firat, blank gun.

I had an “arsenal” like that, but it was when I was 16 and just starting out.

I only have 1 gun and 1 rifle.

If they think 2 handguns are an arsenal, they would declare a state of emergency if they saw what I have (hint: over 8x that amount), and I don’t even have anywhere near the biggest collection of people I know.

Remember that Astoria is a borough of NYC and ALL that stuff (even the airsoft) is illegal there. Apparently this guy also has a rap sheet of some kind. So, that “arsenal” is illegal

But is 2 guns news-worthy? Hell no. Which is of course, what makes this fearmongering so ridiculous.

I leave the house with more firepower than this guy. But I don’t live in NY.

Not surprising. About 3-4 years ago, I watched a 10 minute newscast about how ‘easy’ it was to drive up to upstate New York and buy a muzzleloader… except they didn’t say it was a muzzleloader. They kept calling it a .50 caliber rifle, and had a montage of .50 BMG rounds.

Heaven forbid someone use it in a crime. (Wait hold on a minute, I gotta pour the gunpowder, pack the bullet. Dammit, where’s my primer, cock, ok, now give me your money!!!) =_=

Hey, at least it wasn’t a “weapons cache of two guns and 200 rounds siezed” article. Lolz.

Heath September 4, 2012 at 11:57 am

I’d like to read the cause listed on the warrant and see if the stickers on his door were present.

Cameron September 4, 2012 at 12:53 pm

i bet 10,000 of those rounds are for the air rifles

Apparently being an NRA member and a veteran makes you a terrorist now.

Jason September 4, 2012 at 02:53 pm

Hell Peter. You didn’t know that? That has been ever since the Patriot Act.

PJ September 4, 2012 at 03:20 pm

It doesn’t make you a terrorist. It just suggests you might be thinking of maybe one day looking into becoming aquatinted with someone whose cousin’s wife’s aunt’s ex-husband’s buddy may be. Better send you to Gitmo just to be safe.

I believe in the right to own unlimted numbers of weapons, but they found 32 machetes? Does he run a cocain plantation in his apartment?

Welcome to Bloombergia, the home of national socialism. You can smoke pot in Central Park, but not a cigarette. You can buy a 20 ounce rum & coke but can’t buy a 20 ounce coke with no alcohol. You can’t give away a free espresso if you have a cigar store. And then there are the building codes that came in to effect in 2008.

I am so glad that I never fly anymore because of the TSA. It takes away my desire to go to Bloombergia, even for free.

Well, just gonna say…
60 knives is a fuckton of knives.
17 airguns is a fuckton of airguns.
26 mags is a fuckton of mags.

Nothing wrong with it, but woah.
That’s a fuckton.

Betcha there’s a known gang hangout in NYC with more weapons and ammunition in it.

And betcha the police will never raid it.
