You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who was
put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned
100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his
home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.

By Southern California standards, someone owning 100,000 rounds is
considered "mentally unstable."

In Michigan, he'd be called "The last white guy still living in
Detroit.”

In Arizona, he'd be called "an avid gun collector."

In Arkansas, 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 Kansas, he'd be "A guy down the road you would want to have for a
friend.” In Montana, he'd be called "The neighborhood 'Go-To' guy."

In Alabama, he'd be called "a likely gubernatorial candidate."

In Georgia, he'd be called "an eligible bachelor."

In North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, Minnesota, Oklahoma,
Wisconsin, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina he would be called
"a deer hunting buddy."

And in Texas he'd just be "Billy Bob, who's a little short on ammo."

People with lots of guns and ammo aren't usually the problem.

If computers crash and we can't get to our money or buy groceries because they can't "check us out", those are the folks that will be able to feed themselves.

In Minnesota I call him "Father-in-law".

This is a scary trend that I think we are going to see more of in the future. Once they [Govt] have created a questionable mental instability they are one step closer to denying his right to own. A conspiracy theorist would say that is one reason they are classifying so many kids today as ADHD and recommending they start taking prescription drugs. That way in the future they could possibly use the years old diagnosis as an excuse to deny gun ownership.

Here in Canada he'd be called an illegal armory and just about every law enforcement agency asset available would be surrounding his "compound". Hell, I'm nervous I'm doing something illegal with a couple of airsoft handguns in the house!

Always sounds funny to me when there are negative and fearful comments about several hundred rounds that are "found" in someone's possession. When my wife and I were Cowboy Action Shooters, we would often go to a big match with 3,000 rounds including shotgun.

We shot tens of thousands of rounds per year.

Woooo....that makes you such a big bady! People have forgot what gave them the security they have here. Now they just want to roll over and let the real monsters take over.

During "tactical rifle" run-and-gun games it is pretty easy to go through 4-500 rounds of 5.56 in a day.
Four rounds of sporting clays is about 200 shells.
If I take the nephews shooting, we will pack no less than 500 rounds of .22 ammo.

People who get freaked out by "thousands of rounds of ammunition" have little clue what they are talking about.

BTW, I've seen this original story a few times, and am pretty sure it's just a joke.:wink:
