On the news this week was a story 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.
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, "my huntin' buddy".

This is a serious question.
Do .22lr rounds actually count towards the stockpile round count, or not? Its easy to amass a large collection of them.

In West Virginia he'd be classified as "ill prepared".
