    Hey Sid, I have 3 times that many guns. I still don't have enough. What makes you think I shouldn't have that many guns? Should you be limited on how many pairs of shoes you can own? Or how many cars and what type of cars you can own? How about limiting how many children you can give birth too? We have the right to own how ever many guns and what type of guns, we want too. For your info, an assault rifle is selective fire, semi auto, burst & full auto. know what you are talking about before you try to correct someone, about something you no knowledge of. Anything can be used as a weapon, should we ban hammers, baseball bats, kitchen knives? Come on use your head, any chance the media gets to protray guns in a bad way, they do it. This artical was about drugs, NOT guns. Why didn't they post photos of the meth lab or pot plants? NOPE just pics of the guns! They are sending a message and you are too biassed to see it. It's sad that people can't do their own thinking & wake up!

Where did you see anything about the police and press trying to take away your rights? Gun lover, you have a problem... the story was about a meth lab, being busted. No one person needs this many guns... Guns don't break the law, but some peole with guns do. No one need assault rifles. No one needs meth labs, and finally no one needs for you to see someone out to get you behind every story like this. Sorry its not about you or the 2nd amendment. It's about crime, serious crime. " Its sad you missed the point. If the story was only about drugs why show the guns.

    I have a real big problem with anyone in my neighborhood having possession of (only) 2 assault type weapons and 3 handguns at a residence where they are manufacturing meth amphetamines. I do support the 2nd Amendment. Just not drug addicts and guns together. Hope the Sheriff Dept. rousts the rest of them out in our area.

    OMG! Just look at all these guns! Why this person must be a terrorist! Sorry about the sarcasism, but I'm getting really tired of seeing stuff printed like this. All it amounts to is our law enforcement and journalists bashing at our 2nd amendment again. Yeah, this person is a slimebag for dealing and manufacturing, but what has that got to do with these guns? I count 17 rifles and shotguns. The one on the far left is a 9mm plinker. The next a AR-15 used for competetive target and plinking. I see a Remington Apache Nylon 66 in .22 caliber I'd love to have as a collectors item. The photo is so tiny that it is hard to tell what they all are, but most are deerslayer and upland bird hunting shotguns. I can only see 2 guns that look like they may be assault type weapons. They said their were also 3 handguns. Gee, its amazing they took this person without any bloodshead (sarcasism again). I'm just trying to say that guns don't make criminals.
