2) "(no LE dept is going to leave long guns casually leaning in a rack like you or I would have in our PU)"
Just for the record I never casually leave any firearm in a vehicle.
Sigh. I keep thinking of, relating to, the old days in my little rural community where everybody had a .22 or a 30-30 and a shotgun in the PU back window rack. Yes, you are technically correct, those days are gone. Thanx a lot for the reminder!!!
But you got the point I was actually making, right? Right? (Hint: it wasn't about US leaving our firearms unlocked in our vehicles.)
