Is there any question that the folks of Astoria Queens are better off now? In New York, if you want to own guns you need to have a good reason to do so. Unlike other states, this kind of sick obsession for hoarding guns is not tolerated.An Astoria, Queens, resident with an arsenal of weapons — including handguns, high-capacity rifle magazines, 10,000 rounds of ammo and 32 machetes — was busted yesterday, cops said.Michael Millazzo, 53, was taken into custody after cops broke down his door at 6:30 a.m. They initially were called to the address on Sunday over reports that someone was firing shots into the air.In the stockpile, cops found 10,537 rounds of ammo, a 9mm firearm, six high-capacity rifle magazines, a .40-caliber Glock, 60 knives, 16 air pistols and seven tasers.Millazzo was slapped with weapons and reckless-endangerment charges.He had been arrested in 2004 on weapons charges after cops found him in possession of five rifles and one handgun.Neighbors hailed the bust. “We are all paranoid that one day he was going to snap and kill us all,” one said. “We got lots of kids here. The entire community is worried about their kids. A lot of people complained.”
The results: everyone's better off.
