Thieves targeting gunowners in Norfolk


New member
i have never been able to grasp thieves breaking into a home that is known to have the means to hurt and kill them with the only mindset that the home has something that will help them hurt and kill someone else.thieves just dont seem to be afraid of the gun unless it is pointed at them.and then only maybe if they are not strung out on something.

Thieves targeting gunowners in Norfolk

Police warn owners of bumper stickers alleging gun ownership could be targets of thieves in Norfolk.
Norfolk police reports show a trend of home burglaries involving people with tactical or gun stickers on their cars.
Some of the the stickers promote a particular gun brand or have message promoting the right to bear arms. Police said while these stickers show pride, they also show thieves you have firearms in your home.
"I guess I'm not too surprised it's happening," gun owner Chad Hixson said. "If you're going to broadcast that you own a gun, it's almost like inviting trouble."
That is why Hixson said he wouldn't be caught putting a gun bumper sticker on his car or home.
"I think it's a little overboard," Hixson said. "It's almost like you are kind of flaunting it. It's like saying, 'Come mess with me. I dare you.' It's almost like you are asking to pick a fight with somebody."
Norfolk Crime Prevention isn't telling gun owners not to flaunt these stickers, but they are telling them to be careful, and mindful of the dangers.
They also suggest keeping your guns locked up in a secure, safe place, and keeping the model and serial numbers of all firearms.

Criminals are not rational--if they were they would something else, like law abiding citizens minding their own business.

I hope the majority who make the mistake of invading a gun owners home get culled like aged bulls.
I do not trust any MSM source... Point is whether true story or not it is definitely plausible. There are hundreds of resources available for free that would allow a thief to do homework on a property that they would intend to rob. Ever heard of Having a bumper sticker or any other advertisement that leads them to suspect a place is a horrible idea IMHO. Not to mention why wouldn't NBC want to publish this story? Give thieves the ideas, they steal the guns, liberals push for more restrictions on legal gun owners citing crime data. The tinfoil hat works well in the mornings..
I thought criminals went to LGSs and went through a background check. You mean to tell me they steal the guns they use to kill people because they know they won't pass a background check? Thats f'n genius. Criminals are smarter than liberals.
Hence the two large trained dogs, burglar alarm cameras and security vault, if you catch me, wife or son at home you will be looking down the business end of a weapon. PS: Obama care will not do you any good.
