MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA, Mass. —

A Massachusetts man is in jail facing weapons charges after his wife turned him in

to police for having a huge cache of weapons, including rifles, tear gas
grenades and explosives, inside his North Shore condominium.

Gregory
Girard, 45, of Manchester-by-the-Sea was arrested Tuesday, police said, after he
allegedly told officers he was preparing for Armageddon.

He allegedly
told his wife, Kristine Girard, a licensed psychiatrist, that he was convinced
the end of the world was near.

“He’s convinced that martial law is
imminent, and that he made the following statements recently to (his wife):
‘Don’t talk to people. Shoot them instead. It’s fine to shoot people in the
head, because traitors deserve it,” state prosecutor Honor Segal told a judge at
Girard’s arraignment hearing.

Girard was arraigned in Salem District
Court on four counts of possession of an infernal device and four counts of

possession of a dangerous weapon and is now facing a dangerousness hearing on
Friday.

According to police reports, Girard was engaging in target
practice in a makeshift, illegal shooting range in the attic of his 23 Bridge
St. condo. He also had a six-month supply of food and prescription drugs,
including anti-depressants.
e
Police said they found about
20 high-powered rifles, shotguns and handguns, and armor-piercing bullets, in

the Girard’s second-floor condo. The weapons were purchased legally and were
registered, but officers said they also found grenades, which are illegal.

Girard’s weapons licenses were immediately revoked.

He was
described as cooperative when officers arrived to arrest him. Stunned neighbors
in the couple’s high-end condo complex said the Girards were a nice couple.

“I don’t think he was intending to harm anybody … no, I never heard
anything,” a neighbor said.

Girard has no criminal record. He pleaded
not guilty and was ordered held without bail at his arraignment.
