Recently, a Southern California man was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and had (by rough estimate) 1 million rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also has a secret escape tunnel.The television reporter said: "Wow! He has about a million machine gun bullets!" and the headline referred to it as a "massive weapons cache".By California standards someone owning even 100,000 rounds would be called "mentally unstable".If he lived elsewhere, such as Arizona, he'd be called "an avid gun collector."In Oklahoma, he'd be called "a novice gun collector".In Colorado he'd be called under-inventoried and needs further education since he needs at least that much stored in two separate "Remote mountain" locations plus that amount at home.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 foodIn 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 Hunting Buddy."
