    Another Biased New Story

    This is a great example of how biased the most main stream news outlets are. While the story is technically accurate, look at the negative terms and language used to report the story. Cache, stockpile, stash, "beyond comprehension that somebody can have so many weapons in a residence like this in a neighborhood like this", and armory. It is not until the last sentence of the story that the neutral or positive term "collection" is used. In other stories on this it is included, with words expressing moral shock, that he also had "over 1,000s of rounds of ammunition." Most of the pictures shown of the 1,000s of guns are hunting rifles and shotguns and revolvers. I am sure there are some semi-automatic weapons in there, but they are hard to find amongst everything else. All in all, the bias in the story from multiple news sources almost pushes this to the level of fake news as the story does not just provide facts, but by the language used leads people to the conclusion that anyone who owns multiple guns and ammunition is somehow suspect and should be reported.

    Heard about this. While not reading the NBC newsless report, I am pretty sure I read the guy does have an FFL.

    Yea, some of the other stories I read hinted at that as well. The thing that California is using to go after him, though, is illegally modified "assault" weapons. Not exactly sure what that means.

    I think it means legal per the constitution, but not legal in commiefornia. Also legal in most of the other states, but again not the people's republic of commiefornia.

    I see an SKS, an M1 carbine and a belt fed PKM.

    He can have everything in that pile, but he is going away for that SKS.

    I guessed because it has an internal magazine and holds the most rounds. So, sarcasm!
