As much as I detest thieves, the last thing I would do is report one to a bunch of rights violating thugs who have a history of assaulting, extorting, kidnapping, and even murdering innocent people who exercise their rights.


IE! WACO — Ruby Ridge – ASSASSINATION of an UNARMED American on a highway during winter — at an Outdoor song festival!


Stag – if ya did happen to find out who the bandits are (no not the bats – the thieves – oops might have just gotten redundant) you could always call the local LEOs (anonymously) and let them make the catch.


The now “normal” 13% shopping spree. Haven’t had a BULLS**T riot lately to burn/loot shop, so this is the new night out shopping.
Where is Paul Kersey when you need him ?????

You would think that a business who sells firearms knows that there are plenty of thieves out to steal guns, that they would have an alarm system on the building, yet it was never mentioned in the story.
As for the ATF offering a measly $8000 reward, there was talk of giving $450,000 to families of illegals who were separated from their kids when they came into the country illegally, c’mon man.


What happened to the all powerful government agency batfe? Why just yesterday they claimed they took a bomber off the streets and kept us safe. Why can’t they do their own investigation and catch these guys, why do they need publics help? Just shows you how helpful they really are, NOT!

Wild Bill

Excellent observations!


Not the ATF’s fault nor the gun store’s, but those pictures are nearly useless. The only ones that could come anywhere close to identifying them from those would be close acquaintances or family.


It sickens me how little money is offered for help from the public and how it always relies on a conviction. How about most people don’t want to incur the rath of a gang and won’t say jack for 8,000 lousy bucks. Make it 50,000 and I am sure you will have people (other gang members family members) jumping up to collect. We have the same crap here. Our DFG offers a mere pittance for people providing information for these sick jerks that kill thrill our elk and deer and sometimes steal the antlers. We should do it for free,… Read more »
