    You may have heard on the news about a southern California man put under
    72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and
    allegedly had (by rough estimate) 100,000 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
    quarter million machine gun bullets." The headline referred to it as a
    "massive weapons cache!"
    By southern California standards someone owning 100,000 rounds would be
    called "mentally unstable."
    However, 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 Alaska , he'd be called "B.T."
    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 Florida , he'd be called "Seawolf/Seacowboy."
    In Wyoming , he'd be called "an eligible bachelor."
    And, in Louisiana , he'd be called "Gator 45/70."

    Just bored...Out in the Gulf...ccc...

    He's not nearly prepped enough for Detroit, Chicago, Cleavland. It's only 1k rounds per weapon. WTF is he thinking.

    OK, if he's got a shrike or vulcan I'll take it all back.
