The majority of guns used in crimes are borrowed or stolen from legal owners. Two old men had seven guns between them, and that's just what they took to the range, don't you think that sounds a bit excessive?

Because those men felt the need to bring a small arsenal to target practice there are now 7 more guns floating around in the possession of people who shouldn't have them.  That's seven more armed criminals committing armed robbery, home invasion, rape, and murder.

So, yes, guns are a problem, and the NRA's 'Have all the guns you want, there's more where those came from' stance is also a problem.

If the victims were transporting their weapons in a way they could be easily stolen then they would be at fault in much the same way there's little sympathy for someone who leaves their keys in the ignition and wonders how their car was stolen.

What exactly is a more secure way of transporting your guns out of the range back to your car? I fail to see how getting robbed and shot in the dick makes you at fault.... Also, I'm sure you could "easily" steal anything from anybody once you've shown your willingness to shoot somebody in the dick....

Blame the victim much? Do you shame rape survivors for how they dress, too? I mean, are we to call the Brinks armored truck company to escort us through the parking lot of the range to our vehicles? Or is it just that the anti-NRA talking point suggests that as gun owners we've failed if we aren't ready to shoot at all times, even though guns aren't even allowed to be walked off the range while loaded? This is confusing. I hope the shooting victim pulls through.

If only there were some way to secure weapons so they'd be unusable if stolen and thus make them less likely to be stolen as a result. Some sort of weapon that's smart. Or smarter than you anyway.

Oh, the .22 pistol that costs around $1800 that can only be activated by a watch that is a separate several hundred dollar purchase, and as far as I know hasn't been sold in the US yet? Yes I'm sure that gun will fit all my shooting and hunting purposes, even though it is too small of a caliber to legally hunt game much larger than a coyote. Unfortunately that gun is not getting much love because laws in certain states require that once the smart gun technology is available, all new guns must be smrt. But even if that gun were among the seven stolen, I doubt the thieves would have forgotten to collect the watch. But yes, I'm so so stupid.

Because a criminal who robs and steals from people at a gun range will leave your 'smart'gun bracelet.

Clearly the real outrage is that people are allowed to own handguns in the first place.

The witness told police that both he and his friend complied, handing over seven guns, their wallets and phones, but that the male assailant shot the 67-year-old man anyway, hitting him in the groin and critically wounding him.

See people, THAT is how you deal with gun nuts.

2014-06-13 08:00:26 AM  

enry: 2) even so, why were the firearms so easy to steal?


Because they are relatively common, small, and relatively high value items, both in terms of monetary value and in terms of utility to criminals.

Now, the only way to change that is to make them uncommon, large, and/or low value items, with a possible fourth option of requiring them to be secured in such a manner as to make it extremely unlikely for them to be stolen.  Since I don't see #2 or #3 happening, really your only chance is #1, making them uncommon, and/or #4, requiring extraordinary security for storage.

Both of which, of course, have been ruled to be explicitly unconstitutional by District of Columbia v. Heller:

The handgun ban and the trigger-lock requirement (as applied to self-defense) violate the Second Amendment. The District's total ban on handgun possession in the home amounts to a prohibition on an entire class of "arms" that Americans overwhelmingly choose for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Under any of the standards of scrutiny the Court has applied to enumerated constitutional rights, this prohibition - in the place where the importance of the lawful defense of self, family, and property is most acute - would fail constitutional muster. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.

Note:  The DC law prohibiting handgun ownership "grandfathered" those legally owned when the law was originally passed, so you *COULD* own a handgun in DC, if it you had registered it in 1976 and kept the registration current.  They did this in order to prevent having to pay the owners compensation for those guns under the Fourth Amendment.

So it didn't actually remove legal handguns, it just made them less and less common, with the number of them decreasing as people died, moved out of the district, etc.

If you are a gun owner and you can't secure your weapons to prevent such theft (something as simple as a trigger lock or a locked case would do), then you at least share some of the blame.

The bolded part was my point.  The NRA declares a fatwa on anyone that tries to promote gun control measures that will reduce the number of guns in circulation, and as a result we've got guns coming out the ying-yang.

If it was made more difficult and/or expensive to own and carry guns, fewer people would do it, the number of guns in circulation would drop over time, and there would be less guns available to criminals.

Wait, this happened in Philadelphia?

Philly isn't very gun-friendly.  I'm willing to bet that the people coming out of the gun range had the guns cased and unloaded in order to prevent any problems with the police.

18 Pa.C.S. § 6108: Carrying firearms on public streets or public property in Philadelphia
No person shall carry a firearm, rifle or shotgun at any time upon the public streets or upon any public property in a city of the first class unless:
     (1) such person is licensed to carry a firearm; or
     (2) such person is exempt from licensing under section 6106 of this title (relating to firearms not to be carried without a license).


Basically, if they didn't have a PA concealed carry license, and they walked out with an uncased and loaded gun, they'd be violating the law.

Don't blame the NRA.  Blame Philadelphia law.  The rest of PA is 'de facto' open carry, as it's not expressly prohibited.

It really should be legal to shoot anyone from Philly.

RexTalionis: Olo Manolo: 7 more guns makes 7 more criminals? that sounds perfectly reasonable. as does blaming the victims of the crime...

If you are a gun owner and you can't secure your weapons to prevent such theft (something as simple as a trigger lock or a locked case would do), then you at least share some of the blame.


How do you know they weren't secured with a gun lock? That was not mentioned one way or the other in the article.

If the Brinks guy gets held up carrying cash from Home Depot out to his truck - I guess thats his fault too? Should all his cash be locked too so that he is completely without fault?

One post to full derp and he even beat dittybopper to the punch.

That is mighty farking impressive.

It's good to see, however, that the gun nuts maintain their insanely irrational positions even when it's one of their own that gets a bullet to the testicles instead of a seven year old catching one in the face during a reading lesson.

They may be completely nuts, but they're principled nuts!

Elegy: violentsalvation: TuteTibiImperes: Two old men had seven guns between them, and that's just what they took to the range, don't you think that sounds a bit excessive?

No. Why would that be excessive?

Who the hell only brings one gun to the range?


someone who only has one gun for self defe... Y'know what? Stuff it. I hope that this kind of thing keeps on happening, and with greater frequency, and with more dicks being shot. Why? Cos it's funnay as all shyte from where I'm drinking.

dittybopper: Don't blame the NRA.  Blame Philadelphia law.


Hahahahaha

You should really take to twitter as a gun rights satirist. Just posting what you earnestly believe will make you seem like a master of the craft.
