An excerpt from the linked article:

By JIM SUHR, Associated Press Writer Jim Suhr, Associated Press Writer – Wed Mar 11, 5:01 am ET

A man accused of running down and shooting an Illinois pastor to death mid-sermon left an arsenal of guns in his bedroom as well as an index card marked "Last Day Will."
The arsenal in accused gunman Terry Sedlacek's room included two 12-gauge shotguns, a rifle and a box of 550 .22-caliber bullets, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

The media will always refer to anything more than "a loaded gun" as an arsenal :rolleyes: Some is a matter of perspective. Some is sensationalization for the story. All people in media from interns to CEOS need to carry a dictionary & thesaurus and refer to them often.

Until a person actually goes shooting and experiences first hand the normal amounts of rounds a box carries, the rounds a magazine holds, the number of rounds you feel comfortable shooting, etc, they will have no perspective.


Its like a Texan telling a north-easterner how far two cities are from each other. We don't use miles, we use hours. They just don't get it until they actually drive it.

Someone on another forum called him. His comments and Mr. Suhr's response:

When I respectfully told him that it was an unfair characterization of what an arsenal is, and how my gun collection vastly outnumbers this guys, he apologized. I told him that I own several guns, shoot recreationally, but don't even hunt and basically punch paper with mine. I told him that the press has a habit of characterizing gun owners in a negative light and describing a few rifles as an arsenal, is way over the top.

Mr. Suhr:
"I can see your point, It was an unfair characterization, and I will make sure that I don't ever do so in the future again, I was kind of caught up in the carnage that this guy caused, I'm not making excuses though, I was wrong."

Caught up in the "carnage" pretty much sounds like an excuse to me!

Thanks JK. I think his response to this guy is just a cop-out, and I am still going to write to the bastard. :mad:
