Think there's more to this story than has been released in the press? :whistling:

Nothing else mentioned as being missing from the car???

Any interesting conversations between the victim and other folks occur lately? Maybe involving gun safety?

Interesting.:dunno: But, why would you leave a loaded gun an unlocked vehicle to begin with?

I am guessing there might be more to the story or at least someone who had an idea the gun was there.

Sometimes at work we have someone who's bad about leaving equipment out unattended in a worksite's yard or in the back of his work vehicle. No matter whether the equipment is ours or his, we'll temporarily "steal" it to teach him a lesson.

Accidents/mistakes do happen even to ordinarily cautious people, doesn't mean they're jerks or fools. Don

You shouldnt leave a loaded gun in a car period. It should either be on your person or in the house.

Unattended, your house can be broken into just as easily. Cable locked to your car, or in a safe in the house.

Even that's not 100%. Like anything else, if somebody knows it's there, and they want it bad enough, they're gonna get it.

Just the way it is.

That said, I think the story is BS.

While I'm usually generally agreeable, I agree with the disagreement, too. You won't find many cars in Arizona without a gun in them.

Oh really. So when I travel to a place where I can legally have a gun in my car, but not outside of my car, I should leave my gun at home for the day?

How about NO. You do what you want, I'll do what I want.

I tried to Mexican-carry my AR...

:shocked:






I find it's much more comfortable to keep it in the trunk.

:supergrin:

I agree with the OP, there has to be more to the story. Trespassing, unlawful entry into a car, and theft (esp of a firearm)... but the thief is the hooker with the heart of gold that returns the property with a love letter that worries about the safety of children? My bull**** meter is pegged at the max.

Total BS. Think about it. I'm not going unarmed for fear of my gun getting stolen from my vehicle. I don't let ****bag criminals decide when I will be armed.

If a criminal wants your gun and its in a locked or unlocked vehicle, they are gonna get it. The same thing goes for your house if the weapons arent properly secured.

Also how do the police and the media get involved?

If his gun was on the front porch why call the police and the media?
