Depending on the size of the store, the number of employees, and which types of guns were stolen, it is entirely possible to miss. At some gun stores in the present, there are dozens of customers milling about hundreds, if not thousands of guns making numerous purchases in response to the political climate. While a small gun store would notice immediately, in a place where over 100 transactions happen in a day, with several employees, it could take days to go over the inventory changes and confirm what is missing. Many gun stores sell used rifles, some are so old and battered as to sell for less than $100. Stores of this variety may have row upon row of these weapons, only spaced by a few inches from each other. Gun stores regularly suffer from theft, and dealing with this problem is one of the primary functions of the ATF.

If theft is a big problem in your gun store, then you cannot handle running a gun store and should be shut down. Every single display gun should be chained down, or tethered down like most stores with common sense use on things like digital cameras for their display pieces. Display pieces properly secured should be the only thing not in a lockbox, including ammo. Incompetence and selling guns and ammo are not compatible at all.

Another thing...... security cameras, what store doesn't have them? Tiny gas stations even have them these days, why wouldn't any gun store?

Seems the news is now out on why the gun shop is being targeted. It is the second mass shooting with guns sold by this store,

www.nbcconnecticut.com...




Police sources told the Hartford Courant that the store sold Nancy Lanza the Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle that was used by her son, Adam Lanza, in last Friday's Sandy Hook School shooting.

According to the Courant, the store also sold the guns used by Omar Thornton to kill eight of his co-workers at HDI in Manchester, Aug. 3, 2010.

State Police said Lanza's guns were legally purchased. Thornton's guns were also purchased legally, according to the paper.

The shootingThornton, a 34-year-old African American man, was called into his place of employment for disciplinary purposes. Thornton had been recorded on surveillance video in the Hartford Distributors warehouse stealing beer on a previous occasion. Hartford Distributors is a wholesale distributor of Budweiser beer products and wine. Given the options of being fired or resigning, Thornton signed the resignation papers and was being escorted out of the building. Instead of leaving, he took two Ruger SR9s from his lunchbox and opened fire. At the time Thornton started shooting, there were around 40 employees in the building. In just a few minutes, Thornton murdered eight coworkers, and seriously injured two others. Many employees made calls to 911, with some callers identifying Thornton.[10] Police arrived on the scene just three minutes after the first 911 call.[11] Police entered the building 10 minutes after the first 911 call. Thornton hid in a locked office. As more police entered the building, Thornton called his mother and explained to her what he had done. He told her he planned on turning the gun on himself. As police closed in, Thornton called 911, saying his motive for the massacre was racism he had experienced in the workplace. He told the 911 operator that he wished he had killed more people.[12][13] Soon after hanging up on 911, he killed himself with a shot to the head.

I think the store owner would know that they were stolen. Was he quoted as saying the guns were stolen or the investigators said they were? What would be the motivation by the law to show that a gun store had guns stolen in large quantities. Seems to me that the gun store owner wouldn't be this lazy. Just don't know why the law would want to make it look this way or if the guns where really stolen why the owner wouldn't report it?

What's amazing is that the authorities are only now taking action against this gun dealer, after one or more weapons procured from it were used in the Newtown shooting, when there had been a history of hinkiness and supposedly stolen weapons -- which the police had already confiscated. Seems there could be way better oversight of gun shops.

Guess they should # down Craigslist. Bought a AR-15 from there not to long ago. No need to register since private buy. Felons get there guns from there all the time. Try and buy one yourself. Quit looking for a connection when there isn't one. News is a business of course they compete. If your running a business wouldn't you want the latest item. Sometimes people make mistakes. Tell me why sometimes we listen to media and then in another post bash them for editing for TPTB. If you don't believe one air don't believe any. Pick a side and get off the fence. If they are against us your being played like a fiddle jumping back and forth. Just because she bought a gun from a crooked salesmen means nothing. Next TPTB connection. Don't worry I'll wait....

It could be a front for laundering guns to the FBI and what not for false flags, so they're raiding it to destroy evidence.
