    Ok. I can see the charge for the shooting range but everything else no.

    He must have voted for Brown. That kind of thing really pisses off tyrants. The Police chief and every officer involved in arresting this guy should be tarred and feathered.

    That story doesn't tell what caused the charges in the first place. Maybe he was firing guns in his home and someone heard it and called the cops.:wow:

    Also sounds like there is a "mental health issue".

    True but they will probably ruin this man regardless.

    weird well not in massachusetts but still. IT appears he had a license to possess firearms in the state of Mass. So why was a search executed in the first place? I'm sure there is more to the story.

    Arrested for keeping 20 weapons and a bunch of ammunition in his own home? And "Infernal device"? WTF? I know people who collect guns and they have more than that in their home.

    The article says he had no prior criminal history. Something is being left out. Did he shoot through the wall of his house into someone elses' home?

    What is going on here aside from what the article says?

    Manchester man held on explosives charges talked of 'Armageddon'

    By Jonathan Phelps
    Staff Writer


    MANCHESTER — A Manchester man who told police he was preparing for "Armageddon" has been hit with a series of weapons charges for having explosive hand grenade "devices" and a stockpile of other weapons and ammunition in his Bridge Street condominium — and illegal indoor shooting range in the attic.

    Gregory Girard, 45, was arrested at 11:22 last night after the Police Department received a report from the federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Bureau in Boston that Girard had explosive hand-grenade devices along with a cache of others.

    Girard was charged with four counts of possession of grenade type explosive devices and four counts of possession of a dangerous weapons. He had two police fixed batons and two police expandable batons.

    Also found in the home were approximately 20 weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition for which Girard was licensed, according to police. Police also discovered the indoor illegal shooting range in the attic.

    He was held at the Manchester Police Department overnight and was transported to Salem District Court this morning for arraignment.

    "Mr. Girard indicated he was preparing for "Armageddon" which he felt was imminent," Police Chief Glenn McKiel said in a prepared statement. Girard also felt that Martial Law "would soon be imposed," McKiel said.

    Girard's license to carry firearms was revoked and all of the weapons and ammunition were seized by police.

    The Manchester Police were assisted by the Cape Ann Regional Response Tactical Unit, The Massachusetts State Police Tactical Unit, Explosive Devices Team, Crisis Negotiation Team, K-9 unit, and agents of the ATF Boston Field Office.

    Girard reportedly had no criminal record, and was not known to police, McKiel's statement indicated.

    We will update this story here at gloucestertimes.com as more information becomes available. For full coverage, look to tomorrow's print and online editions of the Gloucester Daily Times and gloucesterttimes.com.

    What is wrong with an indoor shooting range?

    There is nothing in the story about *why* the police arrested him. What did he *do* that precipitated police attention?
