A man in Richmond, California, was arrested last month with a cache of 248 illegally owned guns and 1 million rounds of ammo in his home, the state attorney general said on Thursday. The man, who was not named, is "alleged to be legally barred from owning weapons," California Attorney General Rob Bonta said in a statement.

Bureau of Firearms agents searching the man's home on January 31 found 11 military-style machine guns, 133 handguns, 37 rifles, 60 assault rifles, 7 shotguns, and 3,000 large-capacity magazines, Bonta said.

Authorities also found 1 million rounds of "miscellaneous caliber ammunition" and dozens of rifle receivers and pistol frames, said the attorney general.

Several grenades were also discovered, but they were determined inert by local bomb squads, per the statement. The man's home also contained 20 silencers and four flare guns, it said.
