How Many is Too Many?

I was reading A Girl and Her Gun (which if you’re not reading, you should!) and she linked to The GunDivas, wherein she was a guest blogger (!)
And there was an earlier post in The GunDivas that caught my eye, specifically, How Many is Too Many?
I’ve never considered this concept as valid.  How much Free Speech is too much?  How much Religious expression (OR purposeful avoidance of Religious expression) is excessive?
Or petitioning redress of grievances?  How many complaints are allowable?
It’s a spurious question, as in “When did you stop beating your wife?”
Whether I own one firearm (a single-shot H&R Topper shotgun) or three-hundred (assorted pistols, revolvers, military-style rifles, shotguns) is of no consequence.  And it’s certainly no business of anyone else, or the government.

It’s Our Right.  Period.

And the blog post made mention of the word arsenal.  Sadly, in today’s culture, this word has developed a negative connotation.
I use the word collection.  It’s more benign.  Even though I no longer have one.
PS – It always kills me when I hear, especially in media reports “the alleged bad guy had X number of guns AND Y amount of ammunition.”  Again, how much is too much?
There are reports of more small arms ammunition shortages, as we had in 2009.  Because we are running up to the election?  Whether Tweedledee or Tweedledum win, both are not ardent proponents of the civil right enumerated in Amendment the Second.

Sigh.

  1. In a recent state case, a federal judge struck down “may issue” in favor of “shall issue”. His decision stated, in part, “Existence of a right is sufficient reason to exercise it.”

    The defense rests.

    • Yeah – I kept my mags and ammo separately, too.
      Know a guy with two huge safes. Needs a shoehorn to add or subtract stuff. Collects Smith revolvers – has 5 (?) Highway Patrolmen, in different configurations!

  4. However many guns Tamara has, subtract 3, and there you go. That should sufficiently answer that.
