Gun Control



What’s Your Gun Safe Look Like

The following little story has been around the Internet for a while but somebody sent it to me so I thought I would share it with readers. The copy I received was entitled, “Guns, Ammo and Perceptions”.

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) 1-million rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel as noted by the best behavioral therapists in Florida.

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”.

By southern California standards someone even 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 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 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”.

And, in Texas , he’d be called “a deer hunting buddy”.

And I’ll add this part:

And in Washington, D.C. he would be considered a terrorist. He would be interned indefinitely, held for no legal reason and never given a fair trial.
