Harbor Police Discovers Cache of Weapons In Point Loma Home

Harbor Police officers, along with agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, found a cache of weapons inside a Point Loma home on November 9.

The weapons were discovered after Harbor Police sergeant Mike Rich was called to the home of 58-year-old Fred Seeber to investigate a possible theft. Upon arriving, Rich, the 2009 "Harbor Police Office of the Year," obtained a search warrant to enter the premises. Officers and agents soon exited with 18 rifles, 14 unregistered handguns, explosive devices, a submachine gun, and 4000 rounds of ammunition.

Seeber, a former felon, was arrested on several charges, including illegal possession of an automatic weapon and possession of explosive devices. He was booked into San Diego County Jail, bail was set at $100,000, and the weapons were impounded.

"14 unregistered handguns" were seized. Pray tell, what is an "unregistered handgun?" I'm aware of no law, state or federal, that requires the registration of handguns. There are laws regulating automatic weapons, short barrel ("sawed off") shotguns, and even a few regarding assault-type rifles. There are also laws regarding explosive devices and explosives in general.

Then number of rifles and handguns here is not unusual for some gun collectors, or just hunters. And there's nothing illegal about having a large assortment or number of firearms, nor a few thousand rounds of ammunition. Your average sporting goods store has several thousand rounds of ammunition.

Dorian, you've fallen for a typical emotional press release or press conference by the cops making it sound as if having more than a very few firearms in one's home is tantamount to some sort of armed rebellion. If this dude is keeping fully automatic weapons in his home, or keeping explosives with no legitimate need, that's a different matter. Referring to ordinary handguns as "unregistered" means nothing. If a handgun owner wanted to "register" his/her gun, there would be no place to "register" it.
