I worked in a job where I had close contact with juvenile felons.  Invariably they obtained their guns by working in groups, targeting a residential neighborhood and "pulling handles", finding unlocked cars.  They hit a gun about one in ten times.

I went to high school with a bunch of juvenile felons. Heard many a braggart tale about someone getting a gun from an unlocked car. It's been my experience that most "responsible" gun owners, aren't.

These people should be charged with a crime when this happens, you just leave your gun where anyone can easily steal it, for like 200 bucks you can buy a gun safe for your car that attaches to the bottom of the front seat if you really want to drive it around like it's Miss Daisy.

Captain Dennis Lukasewicz with the Scranton Police Department confirmed with Eyewitness News, state Senator Marty Flynn's .357 gun was reported stolen from his vehicle on July 28th. He says he last saw it in his vehicle on July 21st.
They say the gun was used days later after a confrontation led to one person being shot in the parking lot of the Valley View Terrace housing complex on August 2nd.


He doesn't check up on Blasty McBlasty for a whole week.  No wonder it left him for someone who knew how to pull his trigger.

.357 revolvers can be fairly small, low maintenance, keep .38s in them to prevent over-penetration, magnum rounds while hiking or camping for hostile fauna.

Just because they are low-tech doesn't mean they are still quite useful.

I'm willing to bet good ass money that every idiot that loses a loved one as a result of an accidental shooting thought that they were the bees knees when it came to gun safety.

$200!?! More like $20. 99% of the time you're only trying to keep someone out for about 30 seconds.

Hey, he was just making the society more polite...And see how well that worked out!
If having guns made us so much more polite, then why is our gun violence rate so high?

Do we not have enough guns? Because having like 4 in circulation for ever man,woman and child
just isn't enough to keep us "polite"? Using that logic, there should be no crime at all..

Wrong kind of .357. It was a Sig P229 in Sig .357.

100% and if you don't report a gun stolen and it's used you are just as culpable.  Guns are not toys, they should be kept track of constantly.  If you forget that you have a gun in your bag or car then you should not be allowed to have a gun.

Flynn's actually my state Senator.  he's a... let's just say he's an interesting guy.  he's a former prison guard, boxer, MMA fighter, and owned a bar in Scranton for a while.  he had a few scrapes with the law before he got elected to the state house the first time, and even since then he's been involved in a few incidents:

https://www.pennlive.com/midstate/2014/10/marty_flynn_pa_rep_harrisburg.html

where I live - the old school Democrat machine is still in charge. Flynn has somebody behind him calling the shots and making sure he gets elected.  he first got elected about 10 years ago to the state house.  there was a proposal in the works to build a natural gas electric generating plant on some old coal lands on one side of the valley. residents were furious about the proposal.  they organized to oppose the plant, and it became a battle between them and the energy company that was building the plant.  it seemed like the residents had the support of the state rep at the time, but eventually he sold them out and dropped his opposition (i.e. he got paid by somebody) and the plant got built. when election time came around, everybody and their brother was on the ballot to replace him (he did run for reelection but came in last behind "warm bucket of spit").  but that's the election that the local political machine ran Flynn and he ended up winning.

last year the local state Senator took another job and resigned.  Flynn ran for the seat - the local GOP put somebody up and it turned into a pretty nasty race, but this is an overwhelmingly Democratic area and Flynn won easily.

I don't know him, but what I gather - he's the kind of guy that keeps a gun on him at all times.

Lots of Democratic politicians have conceal carry permits and carry guns, you would be surprised, and they do because they can and don't trust the police to protect them, but you can't most likely in your state because guns
Dianne Feinstein has a permit and supposedly carries

Correct.  When was the last time you heard about a gun owner not leaving their gun in a place where it can easily be stolen?  I never see news reports about that, so obviously it never happens.
 
2022-01-28 12:43:29 PM  
Well, at least he reported it stolen and wasn't one of the people that never reported it stolen until the police came and asked them about it because a crime had been committed with it.

He still is a dumb as for leaving it in his car.

Got that conclusion from your sample size of one I take it? There are a lot more armed democrats then the right believes. We just don't need to show them off like some sort of deadly safety blanket like the right wing does.
