$75K worth of guns stolen

WaterEngineerWaterEngineer Posts: 24,415 AG
Just hours after a large shipment of weapons arrived at a local gun store, burglars struck the shop and stole numerous handguns, tactical rifles and shotguns.

According to business owner David Duncan, Big Gun Armory received two large deliveries on Friday afternoon. Duncan said the 65 guns were immediately placed on display since store inventory had been heavily depleted due to increased sales related to the election, the Connecticut shootings and holiday shopping.

Then, at 1:47 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 29, Duncan got a call from his alarm company -- the burglar alarm had been activated. Gwinnett County Police were also notified and arrived four minutes after getting the call, but it was too late.

“They cleaned my place out,” Duncan said.

    Funny, that happened to all my controversial weapons as well. What are the odds?

    What gun shop doesn't lock their inventory in safes at night?

    That story just ain't right.

    I agree, the alarm goes off and the cops are there in 4 minutes and they were able to load up that many weapons?

    At least they worked for them. If they were Mexican cartels they could juts wait for holder to deliver em.

    "switch the interior keyed lock to a twist lock for safety purposes" = stupid

    " the technician that installed the system reportedly set the motion activation delay for 45 minutes" = suspect #1

    Like I been saying..... Take the whole darn safe!

    You look suspusious walking out with 15 mixed bag of fire arms to a van. The safe is a christmas package all wrapped up with even a card with money in it.

    Just movers and shippers folks moving and shipping, could you sign here please? Thanks.

    No safe here, all the guns were on display

    Do you have any idea how long it would take most gun stores to move 200+ guns to a safe without damaging them? It would be time to open again. That's why most have bars on the windows and doors.

    Yes to the tech being suspect #1. Timer set wrong, BS, what "security" company does not test a unit after installation?
    One that saw the type of interior lock, the space between the bars and the unlocked racks of guns as well as knowing the response time of the police.

    The timing is suspect too, inside help is my guess.

    I hope they were not insured and the dealer loses his license to ever sell guns again.

    Yeah 20-30 mins in and the same back out with 2-3 employees.

    Apparently it only takes 3 minutes to move 40.

    I know several gun shop owners, and none move them to a safe every night. Most don't have a safe big enough to hold several hundred guns, and the potential for scratches/dents is too great.

    All have doors that are double keyed, and all have cameras that run continuously, with no delays.

    I know several too. All use safes. Maybe my friends are just smarter than yours.

    Duncun should have armed guards at his stupid store.

    the gun thieves usually steal two vehicles and use one to ram their way in and the other to haul them off, and its easy to toss 40 to 60 guns into the bed of a truck or van in a few minutes.

    if they were real bad guys the obama administration would just give them the guns after the tax payers paid for them

    Obama gave them the guns they took from you, didn't they?

    Or was that Bush who took your guns?

    Yeah, there's a mature response.

    Maybe the stores I know don't want to sell scratched guns, or are in better areas. I'm not aware of any stores in North Georgia that move them to safes every night.

    How big are the safes in the places you know? It takes a lot of space to store unboxed guns, again without scratching them. One of the stores I'm referring to sometimes has 250-300 long guns unboxed.
