Federal agents have taken custody of a massive private armory as a result of a raid on a Los Angeles home.
The raid on the home of Girard Damien Saenz, 57, resulted in the ATF seizure of the gun collection. Preliminary estimates of the stash’s size place it as containing more than a thousand firearms of various types, including assault rifles, shotguns, bolt-actions, revolvers and pistols. Some items were historical collectibles, dating back to as far as the Civil War.
ATF photos of the stash revealed the sheer mass of Saenz’s collection.
It’s unclear it the guns were illegally owned, but Saenz is expected to be charged with illegally transporting and selling weapons. The Los Angeles Police Department had received a tip describing Saenz as selling and manufacturing guns from his home on the lam, outside of the legal firearms commerce system.
Saenz is also being accused of possessing a Browning machine gun, an iconic automatic weapon difficult to possess legally under California and federal law.
The ATF raid occurred on the home in Los Angeles’ Holmby Hills neighborhood, an upscale area that includes the nearby Playboy Mansion. Locals expressed surprise that such an impressive armory was being kept in the area.
Sources have described Saenz as a construction worker linked in property records to Cynthia Beck, a former mistress of Gordon Getty, a billionaire oil tycoon. Beck and Saenz co-own a construction business and numerous properties throughout the Los Angeles area.
As suspect actors are able to freely amass large armories outside the confines of the law, the state of California continues to disarm freedom-loving patriots who legally own guns throughout the state.
Florida Man Shoots Three Armed Home Invaders, Two Killed
Thank God for the Second Amendment.
A Florida man defended his property from three armed home invaders who broke into his house in Wesley Chapel early Friday morning.
The unnamed homeowner was reportedly playing video games when he heard a window being broken at around one in the morning.
Two home invaders, who have been identified as Luis Casado, 21, and Khyle Durham, 21 were both shot and killed as they approached the thus-unnamed homeowner in a hallway. A third criminal suspect, Jeremiah Trammel, 19, fled the home after being shot by the resident. He was later arrested by a civilian armed with a weapon of his own, and has since been charged with home invasion robbery. He’s also being charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of his two accomplices, for the commission of a crime which resulted in their deaths.
Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco is describing the incident as a clear-cut example of self-defense. “The victim in this case was exercising his Second Amendment right to protect himself in his home,” he said of the event. He’s reporting that all three of the men have previous criminal records, which include “extremely violent” crimes.
Sheriff Nocco has said that the victim of the home invasion believes he may have been targeted because of his extensive gun collection, of which he had occasionally posted pictures of on social media. The Vector rifle he used in the incident is somewhat of a rare firearm for civilian ownership, having been originally designed for use as a submachine gun by law enforcement and militaries.
As another law-abiding citizen utilizes his weapon to lawfully defend his home from criminals intent on doing him harm, liberals and Democrats appeared more determined to seize the guns of American patriots than ever before.
