I don't know why but every time I see on one of the national new channels the story about the Coast Guard guy that was making plans to kill a bunch of politicians and that he had an arsenal of 50 YES 50 firearms and at least 1000 ROUNDS of ammunition I have to laugh.
No I don't condone shooting politicians although there are a few that could use a bit of shooting I do laugh about the number of guns and ALL THAT AMMUNITION.
I have friends that if you said you had 1000 rounds of ammunition they would ask if I had been sick and not able to reload or do I need a loan to bide me over until I got my numbers up again. Hell if your a Prairie dog shooter a 1000 rounds would be the first day and what are you going to do for the rest of the week. :D
Sorry if I have a weird sense of humor but I find that news line hilarious.

I don't know about humor, but I just find it odd that they call what I saw to be "15 firearms" an arsenal. especially considering they were cheapo guns. I probably only have about 20 firearms but very few cheapos. i would hardly call that an "arsenal". i also have friends that lost count after it broke triple digits. now you're talking. but "arsenal" for 15 guns is the media trying to use negative connotations and scare tactics.

I have a friend that had at one time over 400 Model 12 Winchesters. He was the third generation collector of them and inherited a good part of them. That wasn't counting the other guns he had. I did not call that an arsenal at all. He had no intention of shooting 99% of them. Just liked looking at them and researching them. A good part of them were factory engraved, rare, unusual models. Yup not an arsenal.
