A Flushing man will spend time in prison after stockpiling a cache of guns and ammunition in the basement of his home in March 2018, prosecutors announced Jan. 24. Alan Hoo, 47, pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in December 2018. He was sentenced to three and a half years in prison to be followed by five years’ post-release supervision.

New Yuck Sucks. So he had a collection of guns. Was he robbing banks? Shooting people?

I'm glad I live in a free state. But I'm beginning to dread the future. When I was 30 years old I could never have for seen Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, or Bernie Sanders. The rise of socialism in America in the shadow of the collapse of the U. S. S. R. and contemporaneously with the destruction of Venezuela's society is beyond incredible.

MarkHamTownsend - This guy apparently 'swatted' himself, which means that he's not all there mentally. New York requires permits for possession of firearms, long and short. 'Stockpiling' is just an anti-2A buzzword - if he had permits for all the weapons it isn't illegal.

There isn't enough info in this article as to whether they were 'legal' firearms or not, but I suspect that if he crank-called 911 the cops could scoop up his stuff pursuant to the arrest anyway.

What a travesty.Collect a few firearms and some ammo while exercising a Constitutional right, and be put in prison. It's been said that together we stand, and divided we fell, If we don't take it back we're headed for hell. Sounds about right, and sadly America appears to be a breeding ground for tyranny, and no one seems to care.

From the article: "a .308 caliber rifle loaded with three rounds of ammunition in the chamber".

I would like to see how he accomplished that.

One should not need a permit to keep guns and ammunition in one's house. There are only about eight states where this would be illegal.

One would think that NY state has enough criminals without having to make criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens.

The UK has a crime problem and, believe it or not, except for murder, theirs is worse than ours. — Dan Rather, CBS Special Report, July, 2000
