I see that definition of arsenal all the time. Over and over, usually along with a comment about how stupid the press is.
I wonder if anyone actually looks it up, or if they just go on what they read on another website.
ar·se·nal [ahr-suh-nl, ahrs-nuhl]
1. a place of storage or a magazine containing arms and military equipment for land or naval service.
2. a government establishment where military equipment or munitions are manufactured.
3. a collection or supply of weapons or munitions.
4. a collection or supply of anything; store: He came to the meeting with an impressive arsenal of new research data.
Notice. The second of those four definitions IS the PLACE WHERE WEAPONS ARE MADE.
But the first one is the place where they are stored and the third one is the group of weapons themselves.
Ah, but he used webster.
a : an establishment for the manufacture or storage of arms and military equipment
b : a collection of weapons
How about that. First definition is, indeed, the place where weapons are made and/or stored. Second definitions is A COLLECTION OF WEAPONS.
I suggest you would do better with the "4 GUNS IS NOT AN ARSENAL, YOU FLIPPIN' MORON" than with "AN COLLECTION OF GUNS IS NOT AN ARSENAL YOU IDIOT. AN ARSENAL IS A BUILDING WHERE GUNS ARE MADE". Because, according to the dictionaries, a collection of guns IS an arsenal.
