Via The Tennessee Star.

A total of 1,203 guns were stolen from vehicles in Nashville last year, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD).

Last year’s total is a 13.5 percent decrease from 2022 when 1,392 firearms were taken from vehicles, MNPD notes, adding that the most recent data is “still a shocking number.”

 

189 guns less than the year before. But we are still talking an average of 3 gun per day stolen from vehicles.

We need to get those numbers way down.

We will keep harping bout this because it simply does not make sense that people think a box with glass sides is the same as a gun safe.

  1. is this the “it won’t happen to me “ syndrome?? thats crazy even tho number is down. 1200 guns in a year.. a hundred plus a month…i wonder how many are police issue that get stolen, heh heh

    1. It won’t happen to me.
      I’ll just be away for a minute.
      My car’s not nice enough for them to bother.
      And so forth.

      1. True, but the point I was coming at obliquely: if they occurred outside a GFZ, then they only occurred because the GFZ exists.

  2. If free citizens were allowed to carry their firearm on them, they would not have to leave them in their vehicle. But that is what the lawgivers want for their peeps.

  3. Whats with the rust/dirt on those mags….I guess the sort of folks who leave their guns in their cars don’t otherwise take care if their guns either.

    1. Assuming that’s a recovered gun, it’s entirely possible the dirt is courtesy of the thief, not the owner. (Guessing dirt because plastic doesn’t rust.)

    2. You should see what my EDC looks like. I work in a very dirty and nasty environment and there is such a thing as unloading and loading too often.

    3. There have been many complaints to Sig about their poor quality control and lack of rust resistance of their guns and magazines of late. A quick search on Reddit will yield plenty of threads bemoaning rusty magazines. Many look far worse than that. Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes the magazines rust just being looked at. I have not had a problem with mine, even though I carry daily in the Florida humidity. So, I guess I’ve been lucky.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
