You may have heard on the news about a southern California man ordered to be put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned nearly 100 guns (none of which were machine guns) and allegedly had (by rough estimate) 50,000 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 almost a quarter million machine gun bullets.”
The headline referred to it as a “massive weapons cache, large enough to outfit an entire army”.
By southern California standards someone owning 50,000 rounds of ammo is 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 would 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”.
In Wyoming, he’d be called “an eligible bachelor”.
In Colorado, he’d be called “a deer hunting buddy”.
And, in Alabama, we would just call him “Bubba”.
I sure hope that this was a joke and Kalifornia did not do this.
Because then I am needing some mental evaluation :wacko: :D .
