    Default Misdialed 911 call leads RCMP to home with 100 unsecured guns

    Of all the dumb luck..both good and bad....

    94 long guns, 6 handguns seized from Yarmouth County home in Nova Scotia, police say

    RCMP stumbled upon 100 unsecured guns earlier this week while checking on a home in Nova Scotia's Yarmouth County after the resident misdialed 911, police say.

    A 73-year-old man was arrested and faces charges of unsafe storage of a firearm, and police seized all 100 guns, RCMP said in a news release on Wednesday.

    The "unusual discovery" was made Monday around 11 a.m. AT while police were checking to ensure there was no emergency at his Chebogue home.

    Ninety-four long guns and six handguns were taken.

    The man legally had possession of the guns, said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke.

    "They did actually speak to the person on the phone at the time of the call and he said there was no emergency and that he was trying to dial 411," said Clarke.

    Clarke said RCMP have to respond to all 911 calls, even hangups or misdials.

    "When the police officers went to the individual's home, they felt that they needed to get inside the home to make sure there was no emergency," said Clarke. "With permission from the homeowner, they did enter the home."

    Guns were found throughout the house, none of them secured, she said.

    "What we should be seeing with something like a rifle is that it was disabled or locked in one way."

    The man was later released and is scheduled to appear in Yarmouth provincial court in October

    Even at 150 a pop adds up quick. Wonder if they are going to let him “buy them back”.

    Good chance they are destined for the chopper, unless he gets a good lawyer.

    All those firearms laying around and not one of them secured? Even just a simple trigger lock on each one would have been legal (except for the "R" class,of course). That's a very special kind of stupid besides being incredibly irresponsible. Yeah,they'll skin him,alright. He needs a big boot in the arse.

    I have to agree with you. He is probably a fine man, maybe even a grandpa with good intent, but this sort of thing does no good for the rest of us?

    Maybe one of those old guys who never upgraded from the old FAC and not fully aware of the new storage laws.
