First, WHAT!? REALLY!? WOW! Second, WHAT!? REALLY!? Do you really think there is any responsible gun owner that wouldn't realize one of his/her guns is missing in a timely manner? Anyone who doesn't report a gun stolen has a reason for not doing so, and anyone who claims ignorance to the theft of a firearm of all things is probably a liar. I know of no gun owner that isn't in and out of his/her collection at least once every couple of days for whatever reason, range time, cleaning/maintenance, photos for a website, etc, etc, etc. So for you to actually believe that a responsible gun owner would not notice a missing firearm in his/her collection is simply asynine. Now I realize the key word here is responsible and that there are gun owners who bought a gun for "protetcion" fired a few times cleaned it and stuffed under their mattress never to look at it again. But even in that situation the missing weapon is probably going to be noticed in a reasonable amount of time simply through the changing of sheets. Those of you who think the cops are out there searching for ways to infringe on your rights when it comes to anything and everything need to wake up to the state of the world because that is not what's going on. Ever expanding populations, patrol areas, and responsibilities combined with ever shrinking budgets, police forces and the current "do more with less" state of thinking have turned police officers into glorified first responders. Long gone are the days of putting a cop in a certain area of town on a semi permanent basis and telling him to learn the neighborhood and it's people and places. Long gone are the practices of effective neighborhood/community policing. Police are out on the street doing nothing more than repsonding to calls for assistance from the public 99% of the time. And working in corrections at the county level I see what those calls are and a good many of them are BS but the cops are duty bound to check them all out. So with all that being said whose really trampling your rights? JOhn Q. Public that's who. A cop driving a squad car sees a well dressed guy/girl carrying a high dollar dollar weapon in a quality holster and the first thing that comes to his mind is not criminal with an illegal weapon. The first thought is lawful carrier exercising their right. John Q. Public sees the same guy/girl with the same clothes and the same gun and holster and their first thought is not lawful carrier exercising their right it's, holy crap, that guys got a gun, I better call the cops. So the responding officer who sees the situation for what it is when he arrives (in response to a call from John Q. Public) is now duty bound to stop you, question you and even possibly disarm you until proper credentials have been verified. Not that the officer wants to do this but John Q. Public with the cell phone that made the original complaint is probably hiding somewhere waiting to watch/videotape you getting arrested so he can go home and put it on Youtube. And to those of you who know the laws and how the laws relate to your rights better than cops or lawyers I simply say, you are more than likely wrong and you probably have an opinion of yourself that is far too high. Cops and lawyers definately don't know all the laws but they know how to read and interpret them, which believe me is not easy, and they are kept current on new supreme court interpretations of the laws. So unless you've read and memorized all the local, state and federal laws, regulations and ordinances and kept up on all supreme court decisions 9not just the big ones), both state and federal, and how they effect those laws, regulations and ordinances you should probably sit back and relax and leave the LAWE and attorney work to someone who really knows whats going on.
