A Hunting Buddy

A Hunting Buddy

In the news this week, 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".
In Arizona , he'd be called "an avid gun collector."
In Oklahoma, 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 Louisiana, he'd be called "an eligible bachelor".
In Texas, he'd be called "a Hunting Buddy”.

Thank you for the smile. :)

Helps me forget a minute how sad I am to see our beautiful California poisoned with so much of that statist mentality we see and hear every day all around us.

Hopefully one day our Golden State will shine again.

I know for sure anyway: THE VERY day California, herself, manages to wake up to restore liberty, the entire rest of the United States will have rushed back in liberty again, already - or will, if they haven't, yet.

Our state is probably the most wounded, and certainly NOT only in the 2nd Amendment's spirit.

Is this your composition, E?

Very nice humorous touch. I've been so focused on individual liberty: I forgot that states have unique characters as well. When the empire dissolves, maybe states will gain more confidence in pursuing different forms of government.

So, What Crime Did They Poor Bastard Commit?

His crime - Having the right to be an America...

A bigger crime so to speak, was standing by and doing nothing

as law makers slowly continually squeezed our citizens nooses. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Hopefully more people start turning off the tv, and start getting more involved at the local levels.

Better question - did he get out?

Mental institutions are quite the little rat trap. Once there, the only way you can get out is to admit you are mentally ill. Proclaiming your sanity will be called "denial" and they cannot possibly let a mentally ill patient out if the person is not dealing with their issues now, can they?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Just to let you know

You and I agree on a lot more than you think. I didn't want there to be any misunderstanding this time :-)

I doubt it

Even after all the "Treatment" the wise "authorities" to give these poor "mentally ill" people, when the psychoanalyst turns up to assess their sanity, these "nut-cases" usually end up trying to hump their leg while drooling on them!

I wonder why?


True Enough Fishy!

Sign these papers stating that you are mentally unstable and need to undergo massive drug and psychotherapy so we can set you out into the streets to kill innocent women and children...
