Do not understand why gun shops do not have the best security and theft prevention in place to guard against these crimes!
Do not understand why this continues being a problem!
Imagine that – the stolen car used on the heist was abandoned in Pine Hills. Unbelievable. If the ” authorities” want to resolve this DANGEROUS that put a $10,000.00 per head bounty on these THUGS. That will work…..it will only take one of these THUGS being caught to “roll over”.
Not a problem. I can’t even get ammo for my “Legally owned guns”. So they probably can’t either.
