You would think! Most of the larger chain stores are required to do so, if not by law, then by management.

I would think that after repeated burglaries at these small independent gun shops the ATF would be able to take their FFl away.

As I've said before, I continue to feel there are too many guns, if you believe the numbers of more guns than citizens. Combine that with the ease of availability (legal and illegal), our (U.S) worship of firearms, and our tribal insanity, then the dilemma is amplified.   

Yes, I smell hypocritical, even dirty, for purchasing the Kel Tec, overcome with the sensation that I just sold my soul to the devil (a Faustian bargain if I believed in the sons a bitch), or perhaps on the flipside, yielding to the U.S. firearm's edition of Pascal's wager.

We called other law enforcement agencies to see how often guns are stolen in their cities.

Here is the breakdown for this year:

Greensboro had 310 guns stolen in 255 vehicle break-ins
Burlington had 24 taken. Officers have recovered three of those
In 45 vehicle break-ins in High Point, 50 firearms were taken
We reached out to Winston-Salem police, but they did not have an accurate breakdown to share with us

It still baffles me how many people leave unsecured guns in the car, and especially those who do so with the doors unlocked.  I'm not trying to victim blame, as they're still not the ones doing the actual stealing, but if you're going to make the choice to have a gun to protect yourself from the slim chance of being attacked, you should do a better job of protecting your firearm from the much greater chance of a car break in.

Latest update: Attack by 'cowards' could leave Moore County without power for days


Widespread power outages caused by vandalism of electrical substations in Moore County continued on Sunday, with electricity shut off to nearly all residences and businesses, and estimates for restoration of power stretching possibly into Thursday, officials say.

The outages are the result of intentional damage by firearms to two substations in the county, according to Moore County and Duke Energy officials.


Fields said at Sunday's press conference that power outages began shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday and then spread throughout central and southern Moore county.

Jeff Brooks, a spokesman for Duke Energy, explained that the first substation went offline between 7 and 8 p.m. Saturday night, with a second substation following. About 45,000 customers were affected.

Charges will be 'extensive,' says sheriff

Fields stressed that Saturday's attack was "targeted," and that "the persons who did this knew exactly what they were doing."

Fields said that considering state and federal involvement, and the "millions of dollars" of damage done to Duke Energy property, charges will have "more teeth, more bite," and will be "extensive."
