You're missing the forest for single vein in a single leaf. You can look this up, but gloves have found to have been burglary tools. In that case the guy was committing a burglary at the time. Bolt cutters, picks, A gerber multi-tool, even coat hangers can be burglars tools. Intent WITH possession is the key to an offense, not mere possession. At least in Texas. Have I mentioned that I live here for a reason? I have bolt cutters, gloves, a gerber, and several coat hangers. I've used all of them to defeat locks at one time or another. Only for honest reasons, with the property owners permission and at their request.

Anyone that expects a legislature to get things right all the time is in for a few large surprises in a lifetime.
