I haven't listened to podcast but all I know is in most school shootings the resource officer is nowhere to be found.

Guns stolen in Knoxville are often taken from cars. Second Amendment advocates want to stop it

>>>Criminals looking to beef up their arsenal of weapons use a variety of methods, including illegal purchases. But in Knoxville, a surprising number of firearms are simply stolen from unlocked vehicles.

"We've seen cases where individuals who are going to engage in gun violence go out and look for unlocked cars to try to find guns," said Knoxville Police Lt. Josh Shaffer. "Those guns are taken at residences overnight, people are leaving their cars unlocked. It was pretty eye-opening how many are taken, and from a completely unlocked car."

The problem is so prevalent that even Second Amendment advocate lawmakers are trying to walk back the bills they passed allowing Tennesseans to leave guns in their cars.


>>>The Knoxville Police Department recorded 156 reports of firearm thefts in 2021. Of those, the "vast majority" — 123 — were reported stolen from vehicles, said department spokesman Scott Erland. And more than half of those were from an unlocked vehicle, he said.


>>>"It didn't cross my mind that we would have that many stupid people with weapons in their cars," he said. "These are the unintended consequences that we have an obligation to go back and fix."

And he is trying to fix it. Hardaway co-authored a bill, HB 2087, that stalled out in this year's legislative session. The bill would make it illegal to store a firearm or ammunition in a vehicle or boat while the person is not in the vehicle or boat, unless it is locked in the trunk, utility or glove box, or in a locked container securely affixed to the vehicle or boat.

The bill also would require the owner of a firearm to report its loss or theft to law enforcement within 24 hours of the discovery of the loss or theft.
