Perspectives on Gun Ownership in the US

I don’t think its a mystery to most people who read this blog that people throughout the country have different opinions about gun owners, gun rights and gun ownership. I just spotted this on Facebook and had to share – it does explain the differences. What other examples would you add?? Feel free to add suggestions in the comments section.  I am adding this for the humor factor and to point out how differently people around the country would describe the same person – not to make a comment on the original news story.

By Southern California standards someone owning 100 guns and 100,000 rounds of ammunition would be called “mentally unstable.”

Just imagine if he lived elsewhere:

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, , and South Carolina he would be called “a deer hunting buddy.”

And in Texas he’d be just “Bubba, who’s a little short on ammo…”

Some additions I found in comments —

In West Virginia he’d be called a’right

In Colorado, he’d be called Sheriff

In DC they’d call him a member of DHS

In Wyoming, he would be called NORMAL
