Harvey, who has no prior criminal record, was charged with multiple count of illegal weapons possession.
"Illegal firearms pose an extreme risk to the public, and in Queens County creating your own warehouse of lethal shotguns and rifles will not be tolerated," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
DO NOT just write this off as "Well, that's in New York". No one is standing up to this! If you look at the picture from the latest gun confiscation, the guy had a collection of hunting rifles and shotguns. Not even a large collection (16 guns). Most of us here have way more than this guy.Harvey's friend and neighbor, Joe Russo, 50, said there was no reason for all the alarm.
"These allegations are insane," he said. "He is a gun collector. His father was one too. He gave him the guns. It's amazing what some people will come up with. He's a hardworking man who has never been in trouble."
They talk about three different arrests in the article, and none of those arrested had any prior crimes and the article does not mention any other warning signs about the individual posing any kind of threat other than having the audacity to own firearms.
