    Gun theft from legal owners is on the rise….
    Because legal gun ownership is on the rise, and theft of everything from other people hasn’t dropped off enough to overwhelm that increased rate of gun ownership.

    These folks are grasping at straws – literally ANYTHING that might justify opposing nationwide concealed carry and accepting the premise of the 2nd Amendment.

    The author seems baffled that many more guns are stolen than are being used in crimes.

    I’m willing to bet that lots of criminals are acquiring guns for the same reasons we are and theft is simply the only means open for them to do so. Since they’re already criminals, this method doesn’t seem wrong to them like it does to us.

    I still find myself in a small camp: Firearms ownership is the only Bill of Rights right you lose forever if you’re convicted of a crime.

    I find myself thinking that if someone cannot be trusted with a gun, then they cannot be trusted outside a cage.

    Silly people. If there was a law against theft the problem would be solved. Actually, I lay this at the feet of liberal legislators and lazy prosecutors. The politicians coddle the criminals and the courts plea bargain the crimes down instead of giving long sentences and making the perps serve the whole sentence. Third felony conviction should be death.
