"I don't want anyone to get hurt, or I don't want any crimes to be committed with these guns," Rankin said.


OK Dad.

You left 13 unsecured guns in your car in a hotel parking lot.  You left $25,000 of anything just sitting in your car in a hotel parking lot.  You left irreplaceable family heirlooms that you care about in your car in a hotel parking lot.

You were just begging to get robbed.  There is stupid on so many levels here.

That burglar has a constitutional right to carry those guns!

"Responsible" gun owners sure are responsible for a lot more crimes than they seem to want to admit to.

I have a safe bolted to the floor of my truck for such things, bolts secured by red loctite (you'll have to saw the bolts off to get it out).  This dude is a moron and deserves what he got.

I can't say I never left my vehicle unlocked in my driveway sans valuables or my garage door open on rare occasions, but this irresponsible on so many levels.

Now, the Rankin's are offering a $10,000 reward to help catch the culprits and get their guns back.
A collection the veteran says are family heirlooms

Tuffy Security Products?  I have the Wrangler cargo area enclosure.  They would need a farking crowbar and 30+ minutes at the very least.

In June, I parked at a hotel with several grand of camping gear in the thing - no worries.

I don't remember the name brand, it has 1/8 inch thick steel and bolts the size of a dime.  Both key and keypad, but I use only the key.  You aint getting in that thing, not without just stealing the truck and taking your time.

It's pistol size, so obviously long guns are out

Prolly 14x8 inches.  I need to get something for the bed just as strong......

That's a hell of a crime of opportunity for someone to get everything in one go. I'll bet somebody was tracking him and hit him at an opportune time. Either someone who know him or the cartel.

Owner of the car needs jail time and banned from owning guns. Period.

When do we find out it was an insurance scam, because they needed cash to pay for a loved one's ventilator vacation?

FTFA:  "...Since, the family has moved their SUV to the main entrance of the hotel -- while there's still shattered glass all over the parking lot, they said they were already looking for another place to stay..."

On September 11th, of all dates, I wish to thank this Veteran for his service.  At the same time, I would counsel all Commanders, in the spirit of providing for the common defense, to refrain from giving him another chance to serve in harm's way.  I think it would be best for us all.

I always leave my guns in the car.

If I take them in with me, they put things in the cart and want ice cream.

Or: 'Robber' gets a shiatton of guns and ammo for free, while 'victim' gets paid by insurance company.

Sounds like a possible nice way to run guns.

Hell the ammo alone is damn close to ten grand.

This.  Yes, he was in the process of moving, but you still don't have $25k of stuff in your car!  Rent a mini storage.

The article says the hotel is hit frequently.  It seems to me that the hotel should be sued, they obviously know about the problem and did nothing to improve security.

My late brother had just graduated dental school at creighton university in omaha, nebraska, we were all there to visit relatives and cheer him on. Day after, he had all of his dental equipment in his car, plan was to start the drive back to socal and find work. Mistake was leaving all the things in the car in anticipation of an early start on the open road. Theives cleaned out the car of all of his tools, books, clothes, baby equipment, everything, it was devastating for him to lose all that he had worked with.
Stayed at a hotel in ensenada many years back, you gladly paid the guy with the gun In the parking lot his twenty bucks to watch your car for the night, no problems there.

Moving is expensive, with a lot of unexpected expenses.  Even when I was in the military, and moved on Uncle Sam's Nickle, we were briefed to expect to pay up to $5000 out of pocket when we changed stations.

I will not be surprised when this turns out to be an insurance or Go Fund Me scam of some sort.

Might want to tone down the confidence until you make sure your model isn't one of the dozens that LPL has opened with things like twigs and pieces of Red Bull cans...

I had my truck cleaned out of tools while staying for work at a motel on the south side of Indianapolis back in '08.

Since then I load the important stuff onto a cart and bring it in the room with me.
