Perspective (vanity humor)
from an email

Posted on 06/28/2014 6:30:32 AM PDT by Leaning Right

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.


TOPICS: Humor; Society
KEYWORDS: banglist; bullets; guns; humor; prepper; states; texas
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, West Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina he would be called "a deer hunting buddy."

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

The thing about private arsenals in California, which has been true for some years now, is that the ability and willingness to collect arms and ammunition, explosives, compressed gases and gasoline, seems to be inversely proportional to the knowledge of how to properly store the above.

A big favorite is to build a small, concealed bunker in the desert, then pack every square inch of it with such things, omitting ventilation, firewalls, or any other safety measure. And sometimes throwing in a booby trap or two.

So typically, when such a bunker was discovered, the EOD sent there to render it safe would reply, “FTS. Blow it in place.”

“In Montana, he’d be called “The neighborhood Go-To guy.””

I live in Montana and you are absolutely correct. We laugh when we hear about some gun nut in Kalifornia having a half dozen firearms and a few hundred rounds of ammunition.

In Montana that guy would be a piker.

Yeh definitely doesn't know northern Michigan. Around where I am nobody would have a clue you have that much. They would suspect it but most likely never see it.

A bit short of 10 million people in Michigan and probably more than 8 million are gun owners with the laws becoming more favorable all the time.

(MI) Governor Snyder made gun ownership records private

I don’t know - that sounds about right for a pickup truck.
