Gun Collector or Gun Nut?

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) 100,000 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
about a quarter million machine gun bullets." The headline referred
to it as a "massive weapons cache."

By southern California standards someone 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 Texas , 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 Wisconsin , he'd be called "a deer hunting buddy."

And, on GlockTalk, you would be a "Gun Nut"......
