According to an incident report, two white men broke into Mr. Pawn at 501 Broad St. about 9:15 p.m. and stole an undetermined number of rifles.

Investigator Charles Mulherin said the men broke through a locked gate and a heavy metal door in the rear of the business to gain access. He said authorities should know how many weapons were stolen after an audit by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is completed, but no handguns appeared to be missing.

Anyone with information about the burglary should call Mulherin at (706) 724-9983. The sheriff’s office said all calls will be handled confidentially,

Rifles without ammo are

Rifles without ammo are currently worthless.

They would have been in the money if they grabbed all the Ammo.
But the Ammo is probably locked up with the Gold and Silver.

Seriously, Sorry to hear it happened.
This store deals pretty fair on retail sales.

But HOW did it happen, at 9PM of Board St.?
Surely the Burglar Alarm Company called the Police?

The Downtown response times can't be that slow?

Pretty crappy surveillance

Pretty crappy surveillance camera for a store that sells guns. Too bad, the people that run this store are real nice. They will catch these two geniuses.

Restrictions On Gun Ownership

would have prevented this. If the criminals knew that it was illegal to have these guns, they surely would not have stolen them! Right?????

"But the Ammo is probably locked up with the Gold and Silver." Good point thanks to the panic buying from those who think the government is stockpiling it. 500 rounds for $124.24 are sold out but 25 boxes at $19.75 each are freely available. A fool and his money.

Wait... According to Obama

Wait... According to Obama and Biden, all we have to do is enhance background checks to keep guns out of the hands of evildoers. I guess this invalidates that concept.

Liberal Math $124.24 for 500

Liberal Math

$124.24 for 500 rounds = .25 cents/round

If 25 boxes of 50 =1250 rounds, then 25 * $19.75 = $493.75

$493.75 for 1250 rounds = .395 cents /round

Paying 58% more for something that you are already buying in bulk?

Really?

A fool and his money
