@ Joe, Something is a little worrisome and VERY distrubing when this person has an arsenol in a specialized bed with a built in secret arms cache including an ak-47, telescopic lenses,and bullets that would bring a raging elephant down under his mattress. Was he preparing for war against ,the neighbors cat that pee's on his lawn, the kids making to much noise when he is in a smoky haze, crazed squirrels, bad meatloaf at the diner,rowdy polar bears that may overtake the neighborhood, Evil NINJA's, invading aliens life forms from MARs, or is this person just loading up to defend his right to bear arms and protect the 2nd amendment.Whatever the twisted reason there is absolutely NO NEED for this stuff and whatever the reason they pulled him overand i for one am VERY happy and thankful they did this person should be watched and mentaly evaluated. there is absolutely NO rational reason for all this stuff especialy combined with mind altering drugs.

Making another gaff Mr. Biden? I guess you missed the part about the assault weapons with the high capacity clips and bullet proof vests. Also 5oz of pot and owning a bong store. Sounds like it is a little more than recreational use.
