Cops arrested four people, including a mother, father and son, and seized 30 firearms while executing a search warrant on a house near a Brooklyn grade school.

Yesterday's bust at the two-story home, directly across the street from PS 216, a pre-K through grade 5 school in Sheepshead Bay, netted 10 handguns, two assault rifles, nine shotguns and nine rifles.

Authorities also confiscated two crossman air guns, a sword, a machete, three daggers, a hunting knife and an umbrella with a blade hidden in the handle.

Numerous pills were also found, authorities say, along with a large quantity of ammunition and materials to make homemade ammunition. Officials say the items are still being counted and inventoried.

Cops arrested four people in connection with the bust: Michael Poole, 29, Vincent Siano, 29, Thomas Siano, 57, and Kathleen Siano, 58. Authorities say Vincent is the son of Thomas and Kathleen, and that Michael is a friend of the family.  

All four were charged with criminal possession of a weapon. It wasn't immediately cleaar if they had lawyers.
