    I'm guessing here but I believe the store may get a big slap on the hand for this. Aren't then handguns supposed to be in a safe after hours?
    That is just stupid either way.Now they have just fed the underground with 30 guns.

    Make, model, serial? Would be nice to know so we can keep an eye out for them... I HATE it when I get a hot gun in a cash transaction. I've had to turn in three of them in the last few years (cash out of pocket) - it happens more often than you would think. The people i bought them from appeared to be reliable types, and probably had no idea themselves. I know - it's the risk you take for not using an FFL... but still - I've always thought it stupid that we don't have access to LEO's stolen weapon database - I can't see what harm it would do for the general population to have access to that information.

    The Tacoma News tribune is reporting this morning that 42 hand guns and 2 rifles were taken. The rumor is that they hid in a small tent until after hours, then took there time getting what they wanted. Busted the front door getting out and a car was waiting outside. Fife police responded to the scene 30 seconds after the alarm went off. Can you bust in a door and take 44 guns and be back out in 30 seconds? I don't think anybody can do that.

    They have all kinds of backpacks and baseball bags to load it all in.Those aren't worthy to talk about in the news.

    But you just said they hid in a small tent.I'm assuming the tent was inside the store.They may have suspected something if the guys were hiding in a tent outside the store

    They must have footage of them getting into the tents

    I'm in total agreement with you. I understand that if you are patient and persistent, you can call it into the country sheriff here and occasionally find someone in the office to check the S/N for you in advance of purchasing it. It's entirely possible that I have a gun that's been previously stolen in my safe right now, possibly purchased from and honest person who'd got it from an honest person before that and no way to know it. Stolen guns as a way for tweekers and thieves to make good money would dry up if we had access to the stolen gun database and could look it up in advance.
