I found this and it made me think. How many weapons does the government think is too many. I have about 20 knives. Would be more but ran out of funds for a while. Also what do they consider to much powder, or primers. What is too many guns? Just more questions than I ever wanted to think about.

STRASBOURG, France (AFP) – French gendarmes said on Wednesday they had arrested a gun enthusiast who hoarded an arsenal of 400 weapons and 5.5 tonnes of ammunition, from assault rifles to hand grenades, at his home.

Forty-nine-year-old Francis Rinck, who lives with his mother in eastern France, had amassed a huge stash of combat weapons, one third knives and two thirds firearms including machine-guns and assault rifles.

Rinck, who describes himself as a "compulsive collector", has been detained on charges of weapons possession, gendarmes said.

"We found weapons from all over the world," said Captain Quentin Petit, the officer in charge of the investigation in the eastern French town of Wissembourg, after a two-day search of Rinck's home.

Found buried among piles of junk in the man's garage, workshops and in a warehouse, the stash also included 130 kilograms (285 pounds) of propellant for cartridges, TNT explosive and grenades.

Rinck ran into trouble with the law once before, some 25 years ago, when he accidentally opened fire on a group of gendarmes and a subsequent search revealed a stash of weapons.

Officers have sent the arsenal for analysis by specialists, who will try to determine if any of the weapons have been used to commit crimes.
