We Know you Ride, But do you Shoot?

A 57-year-old man in Kitchener, Ont., faces charges after police seized 250 guns and 200,000 rounds of ammunition from his home.
Foolish to not have adequate storage for that many guns, but as we all know the "safe storage" laws are vague at best, and too open to interpretation by LEO's so who knows what the actual details were.

200,000 rounds SEEMS like a lot, and probably sent non-gun owner readers into a frenzy, but if you consider what a 1000rd box of 9mm or .45 looks like you can figure that 200,000rds would be a small closet.

Hell, 200k worth of .22lr would be a medium to large sized moving box...

'Be interesting to see how the case pans out.
I've known of a few cases where the police made nice big splashy "busts" citing unsafe storage charges... only to have the charges tossed because... the legal definition of safe storage is vague.

On that note Amazon has a large stack on cabinet (not long rifle) for $100 with three shelves inside that’s cheaper and larger than the one in crappy tire. Quite pleased with it as it comes fully assembled and might take most of my ammo in it.

Storage regulations do not say your ammo has to be "locked up" so... Spending $ on a lockable cabinet isn't necessary.
If it gives you peace of mind... Go ahead, but... I wouldn't. Then again... I don't have curious little children in my home so..
