Given the security and the way these weapons are locked up -- I think I it isn't absurd to claim this is an "inside job".

They were under lock and key. Not sure what point you are making.

Ah...the joke, you missed it. It went thataway.
General consensus is that this was probably a person who had regular access to the building. So, until proven otherwise I think the FBI is right to say it isn't terror related.
The Daily Beast, an on-line news site is now reporting that at least half a dozen fully automatic M4 assault weapons were among the nearly 20 firearms taken in the break. According to the Daily Beast report, the thieves were able to take away the six M4s along with 10 handguns and several other weapons listed only as "long guns."

More than a dozen military weapons are missing after an overnight break-in at a Massachusetts army reserve center, officials said.
The Worcester armory's missing weapons include six M4 assault rifles, ten pistols, and several long guns, a law enforcement source told the Daily Beast.
Military weapons missing after break-in at Worcester army reserve center: FBI
The article says the break-in is not being considered as a terrorist threat.
Hmmm....I wonder how they could possibly know that at this point.

The armory's alarm system was ticketed for repair that evening and not working. They blew a hole above the vault and went in from there.
