Should there be a limit to the amount of ammunition you can own?

This question is being posed after a large amount of weapons were found in domestic dispute case in Saddle Brook. A man was stabbed by his wife, and she was charged. The police found the husband’s gun collection and confiscated it in accordance with protocol. He may be charged for the massive amount of gunpowder in his possession.

Does the man’s large gun ammunition collection pose a threat to others? Some feel that his gun collection is no different than any other collection. As long as he isn’t using the guns or gunpowder to harm anyone, he should be allowed to have it. Others are concerned about the man’s intentions – what is the man’s reason for having such a huge amount of ammunition in the first place?

Note that the man was stabbed by his wife and the police confiscated his gun collection. He didn't do anything wrong; in fact he was the victim of a crime. But they took his guns, which he could have used to defend himself (from his wife!). This is a horrific miscarriage of justice.

There's a poll on the ammunition question at the link. Results are running 99.51% to "No, there should be no limit to the amount of ammunition you can own."

I bet they are glad they didn't try to run a poll on "Should you be allowed to shoot your wife if she stabs you?"
