Bad guys want guns. Stealing money and buying guns is either prohibited (the instant check list seems to work pretty well) or inefficient, so they steal guns directly instead. This has been going on at a smaller scale for well over a decade, and caused one friend to first relocate his shop, then when he was hit a second time, to call it quits and retire.

Seems to me like "why do you rob banks?" "That's where the money is."

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
