Remember my post about car burglaries? I hate to be right.
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. – People living in Cherokee County neighborhoods are worried about a rash of gun thefts.
According to deputies, suspected gang members roaming the streets have gotten into at least 70 cars and trucks and stolen more than a dozen guns in three different neighborhoods.
The thieves aren’t using any fancy tools to break into the cars. In most cases, they are flipping the door handle. If the car is unlocked, they jump in.
And at the risk once again to piss people off, it is the fault of the dumbasses gun owners who left the guns inside an unlocked car parked at home!
Maybe we have not been clear on the concept of the car gun: It is supposed to be in the car when you are NOT home and you need a back up, preferably in the rifle/carbine-flavor. But why in the name of Cochise’s loincloth are doing leaving your primary gun in the unlocked car parked in front of your house? Why aren’t you carrying the damned thing?
This is the kind of stupid behavior that the Opposition will use against us and legislators will love to place another set of Gun Control Laws on the menu, courtesy of Gun Owner’s careless attitude. And we are going to have to fight them, spending limited resources because a bunch of dumbasses with guns cannot exercise a modicum of responsibility and effort to make sure the gun travels a few feet from the driveway to the inside of the home.
