Seems obvious to me. Reasons two-fold:

1.) The guy was probably flat-out LOONEY. 100 guns, explosives, etc. I'm a gun owner and advocate, but do you really need dynamite to defend the homestead?  Silly

2.) "Croce said they also confiscated marijuana and hashish that deputies said was packaged and stored in a freezer. There was a grow lab in the house." He was trying to defend his illegal activities from competitors or possibly the police. Could've used too much of his own product possibly and got a little paranoid?

Personally, I can't think of 100 guns I would really want.. But if they came my way I wouldn't turn them down. As far as defense goes, you can really only use one at a time effectively, so the guy probably just liked guns.

Explosives would be fun to have

I am 31 and have 29 guns. Mostly WWI/WWII stuff. By the time I am old enough to kick the bucket (hopefully when I am old) I will have 100 guns. Some people look at all guns the same. They are and they are not. My 107 year old Martini-Enfield and my 1970s CZ-70 are hardly comparable. People want to make a big deal about a man with a lot of guns. The real question is what kind of guns. Having dozens of antiques is one thing. Having dozens of AK-47s is another (I only have one of those). I have lots of ammo too. Why. Many of the vintage guns I like the ammo is hard to come by or will be hard to come by when the supplies finely run out. I enjoy shooting and I want enough to last me a long time. I have guns that ammo is no longer made for. When the surplus is gone it is gone. I will buy a bunch so I can always shoot my guns. I would never buy a gun I couldn't shoot; even if only a few times.

Some people would say one gun is too many. I would say you can never have enough. I also have four cars, some would say that is excessive. I say you can never have too many cars, tractors, motorcycles, boats, etc.

Same deal with me.

Oddly enough most people can't shoot more then one or two at the same time.

Makes me think of an intervention we had a few days ago... a woman reported her neighbour was threatening her with a gun. Turned out the guy wasn't threating her, but the people behind, above, under, in the air, crawling on the walls... and especially those in his head I suppose. So, of to the looney asylum with him... but when we searched his house, we came up with enough weaponry to arm a small army... everything from WWII lugers to even grenades.

My colleague also spotted some bulletholes in the wall. Reaction of the neighbour "oh yeah, that's from some time back... but then he wasn't agressive towards us, so we didn't report it..."  boggled 
I love my Airport Job! :)
