Perhaps because of strict anti-2nd Amendment laws California cops are now being targeted by gun thieves.
It’s been revealed that on 03 NOV 2017 a San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputy lost his shotgun, rifle, ammunition and bullet-proof vest when thieves broke into his ‘unmarked’ cop car while he was attending a meeting held by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Local news media intimated that the deputy failed to follow rules about ‘locking down’ guns in his car, despite being a deputy for 15 years.
This is not the first time California cops had their guns stolen. In 2016 the Bay Area News Group published the results of their investigation into thieves targeting California cops’ guns. The report is titled Disarmed and dangerous: Officers across the Bay Area and state are losing firearms at an astonishing rate — and the consequences can be deadly.
Since 2010, 944 cop guns have been stolen, or just disappeared, including fully automatic guns (machineguns) and 40mm grenade launchers! Some recent murders in California involved stolen police guns!
