Why I don't live in California

This just in from the inbox:

A southern California man was 51-50'd and placed under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found that he owned 100 guns and allegedly had a million 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.

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 Washington, ……he'd be a "retired Policeman"

And, in Wyoming, . . . He'd be called "an eligible bachelor."
