    You may have heard on the news about a southern California man that was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found that he owned 100 guns and allegedly had (by rough estimate) 1 million rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel. My favorite quote from the dimwit television reporter: "Wow! He has ... about a million machine gun bullets." The headline referred to it as a "massive weapons cache."

    BTW, I am dubious about the pile of ammunition boxes and cans that they showed. It looked big enough to contain no more than about 100,000 rounds, unless there was a lot of .22 rimfire ammo. However, by southern California standards, even someone owning 100,000 rounds would be called "mentally unstable."

    Just imagine if he lived elsewhere:
    In Arizona , he'd be called "an avid gun collector"
    In Texas , he'd be called "a novice gun collector"
    In Utah , he'd be called "moderately well prepared," but they'd probably
    reserve judgment until they made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.
    In Montana , he'd be called "The neighborhood 'Go-To' guy."
    In Idaho , he'd be called "a likely gubernatorial candidate."
    And, in Wyoming he'd be called "an eligible bachelor."

    Heck yeah I'd help the guy move in down the street. Nothing wrong with having a few guns and a bit of ammo.
