Police Discover, Arrest NYC Pistol License Holder Who Stockpiled ‘45,000 Rounds of Ammunition’ – Submitted by G.P.

JWR’s Comment: This breathless account made me laugh. The journalist sounded truly horrified at the size of his “arsenal.” Out here in The American Redoubt, that gent would be considered just a typical local with a small gun collection. And some of us might feel pity for him only owning three AR-10 magazines, and hand him a few spare PMAGs, so that he’d have a respectable six or seven available. And anyone who thinks that 45,000 rounds of ammunition is a lot, then they ought to meet some of my neighbors, who have floorboards in danger of cracking, from the weight of so many ammo cans. In my valley, stocking 50,000 to 100,000 rounds is more the norm. (I’m not joking.)
