    Police, FBI, Military Ordinance Disposal Unit Remove Stockpile Of Weapons, Ammunition

    SHARON, Conn. (AP) _ Authorities have removed a stockpile of military firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition from the northwest Connecticut house of a man who died earlier this month.

    The Republican-American reports that State Police came to George Laning’s house in Sharon after a friend found him dead March 8. The 59-year-old Laning died of unspecified natural causes days earlier.

    Members of the state police Emergency Services Unit, the FBI and a team of Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians from Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, Mass., cataloged items including a 20 mm anti-tank gun on skis to AR-15s, grenades, bombs and a flamethrower. The equipment was removed by truck.

    Laning was described as a reclusive man who shared his home with his father who died at age 94 in 2005.

    "a 20 mm anti-tank gun on skis to AR-15s, grenades, bombs and a flamethrower"

    So to translate from "Media Speak" to English, "Authorities found one AR-15, two Glock pistols and several hunting rifles."

    EOD gets involved with any surplus stuff like bombs ect, as they did when I had them take away a couple 2.75" live practice rockets from a WW11 P-47 that I'd found amongst Dads stuff when we were shorting stuff out after he passed. Some of that stuff can be downright dangerous if not handled right, especially the old stuff. It all sounds like SOP to me.
