It’s like not noticing a walrus in your swimming pool.

I bought my last firearm at Schupbach’s. It’s a very busy store, but the service is top notch.

Screw the BATF! Deal with them at your own risk, if they think they can convict you easier than actually catching the gun thieves, you’ll be on trial with bogus evidence and your dog will be dead and your life ruined, if you survive.

Customer service is what is missing, someone should have kept up with him in the event of questions or help with whatever he was perusing. A respectful and courteous sales clerk would have prevented this robbery simply by being ever present for assistance.

It’s one thing to have firearms stolen, another whole matter when NFA items are stolen. Loss of your FFL is the least of your worries.

Apparently motion sensors weren’t in the budget.

The store owners have insurance for things like this. Why would anybody help an outfit that habitually breaks their oath to the nation, the people and the constitution? The atfe is known to steal firearms, give firearms to the drug cartels, beat up dissenters, set up innocent people, commit assault, commit murder and commit mass murder. Yet they have NEVER even been prosecuted. They should be disbanded. They should be prosecuted as the tyrants and traitors they are. They should go work for their namesakes — the stazi.

Arm up, carry on.
