French police found some guns on a bus bound for London.
The French media described it as a veritable “arsenal de guerre”.
Here’s what they found: “three loaded automatic pistols, three Smith & Wesson revolvers and a semi-automatic Luger, as well as two Italian-made firearms, a Czech-made firearm, a silencer and almost 500 rounds of 9mm ammunition.”
Obviously they haven’t seen my trunk and probably yours as well.
Let’s see, this week I’ve got in my trunk or on my person:
- An AR with 8 magazines of 28 rounds.
- A shotgun with about 20 rounds of reduced recoil slugs and 30 rounds of reduced recoil buckshot
- A Kel-tec Sub2000 with one 17-round Glock mag.
- Two Glock 19s, each with four 15-round mags.
- One Glock 17, with three 17-round mags (shared with Sub-2000)
- One S&W K-frame with 24 rounds of ammo.
- Kel-tec P3AT with about 50 rounds of ammo.
And that brings us to the age-old bit of humor (author unknown) about the Southern California man who was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.
By Southern California standards, someone owning 100,000 rounds is considered “mentally unstable.”
In Michigan, he’d be called “The last white guy still living in Detroit.”
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 Kansas, he’d be “A guy down the road you would want to have for a friend.”
In Montana, he’d be called “The neighborhood Go-To guy.”
In Alabama, he’d be called “a likely gubernatorial candidate.”
In Georgia, he’d be called “an eligible bachelor.”
In North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina he would be called “a deer hunting buddy.”
And in Texas, he’d just be “Bubba, who’s a little short on ammo.”
