Problems with Gun Thieves Breaking in Cars Escalate!

The Nolensville Police have their hands full with crooks stealing guns out of vehicles in Tennessee.

It has become a massive problem throughout the state, and the cops are just as frustrated with the victims as they are with the criminals.

The problem lies with the victims leaving their vehicles unlocked which allows easy access for the thieves to walk in and take them with no problems.

The cops who investigate the scenes are baffled because not only do the victims leave their vehicles unlocked, they also leave their keys inside the vehicle as well.

The Nolensville police put out a Facebook post in hopes to reach the residences in and around the area which stated, “Please take your guns out of your unlocked vehicles at night! Keys too. I don’t know what else to say.”

Inside the statement, while reading between the lines, it says “I.” This means not only is the police department frustrated, every cop as an individual has had enough.

There are two things a person can do to help avoid this from happening.

Yes, I know they can break in the vehicle, but if these steps are taken, it will deter the thieves from working so hard since they don’t want to get a job and buy a gun of their own.

The first thing a person can do is simple, lock the vehicle.

All vehicles are equipped with locks, and it is as simple as pushing a button for the electric locks.

For the older model vehicles, it will not kill a person to lock every door by hand.

Most people already leave the doors, not in use locked so this is a step ahead.

This is not like it was back in the old days when nobody would mess with another person’s stuff.

Today, all the criminals are looking to make an easy dollar by stealing and selling something that is not theirs.

Secondly, the most responsible thing a person can do who owns a gun is to take the gun out of the vehicle.

Do not leave firearms unattended especially in a vehicle overnight.

Even if the vehicle is locked, take it out and put it away in a safe place.

Nine times out of ten the thieves will see something they want through the windows.

If they want it bad enough, they will break in, but they know they will be seen or heard if crashing through the glass so they will not bother.

If they see or know a gun is in the vehicle, they will steal it to use or sell it on the black market.

What makes things even worse is if the keys are inside the vehicle, the doors are unlocked, and there is a gun inside.

Why not just put a sign painted in fluorescent colors saying, “Hey, I’m over here!! Steal me and come check out the gun I have inside!”

The victims are making the cops in that neighborhood work for those tax dollars.

This problem has been going on for quite some time and is still happening even after a grand jury released a report earlier this year to lawmakers stating, “We recommend that our legislators make it mandatory that gun owners act responsibly when storing their weapons.

Leaving a gun in an unlocked car, for anyone to take, is reckless and should be treated as such by the law.”

Dwight Lewis, who was the foreman on the grand jury stated he was “struck by the number of violent crimes in Nashville which involve guns.”

He heard from the law this is how high school students get their hands-on guns by stealing them out of vehicles.

Lewis continued, “They stole it, or they bought it off the street from somebody who got a stolen gun.

People have a right to own guns, but if you’re going to own a gun, you should be responsible.”

The law is different in every state, but if someone steals or uses a gun that is registered in the owner’s name, then in most cases the gun owner may be responsible as well as the criminal.

This is something to think about before leaving a vehicle unlocked with the keys inside along with a gun.

The same law applies to minors who use their parent’s or neighbor’s gun and commits murder in whatever degree.

The parent or the owner of the gun is responsible for the actions of whoever shoots someone.
