postheadericon 300 Guns Stolen From Unlocked Cars In One Year… In A Single County

VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA — Having a firearm inside your vehicle can be a great way of being prepared, but what about when you’re not in the vehicle when the gun is? If this is the route that you take, you’d better be damn sure that your firearm is as secure as possible.

Leaving your doors unlocked isn’t a secure method.

Sheriff Mike Chitwood started his first public crime trends meeting with this exact discussion, and he couldn’t believe the numbers when he first heard about them.

“I didn’t think the number would be staggering. That’s 300 guns out in the street,” Chitwood said.

A recent incident involved a deputy who went to the movies and left firearms in his personal vehicle. When he got out of the movies, he discovered his firearm was gone, Chitwood said.

Chitwood was familiar with the local gun theft problem during his decade as Daytona Beach police chief, but said he didn’t expect the numbers of guns taken out of unlocked vehicles to be that high.

But not all firearms were stolen from civilian vehicles. Some were even stolen from unlocked police cars. It seems that everyone is to blame, and negligence is running rampant.

“Those guns aren’t falling into the hands of lawful gun owners,” Chitwood said. “They are out there with thugs and criminals who aren’t supposed to have firearms that are in turn used against citizens.”

According to a national survey conducted by researchers at Harvard and Northeastern universities, there are about 270 million privately-owned firearms in the United States. Of that number, 2.5% of owners have said they have had a firearm stolen in the past 5 years. That amounts to roughly 400,000 stolen firearms each year.

There isn’t anything illegal about keeping a firearm inside a vehicle in FL while you’re not around, but common sense would dictate that you lock your door. And, of course, have the firearm out of sight and preferably locked in something as well.

“Our appeal is to the common sense of gun owners, overwhelmingly, gun owners are law abiding folks who follow the law,” Chitwood said. “But sometimes you have to follow more than the law and that’s common sense.”

It’s something that can be easily avoided in many of these cases by simply locking your vehicle. It’s common sense, and is irresponsible not to do so.

postheadericon Why Situational Awareness Is Important: Concealed Carrier Shoots At Robber #1, Then Gets Gun Stolen By Robber #2

By Luke McCoy via USA Carry

Last Friday, a 29-year-old club promoter pulled up to his apartment in Pembroke Pines when a man then attempted to rob him. Instead of handing over what he had, he pulled his firearm and shot at the man 3 times. The victim did have a valid concealed weapons permit.

That’s when another man appeared and wrestled him to the ground. The two robbers proceeded to steal and run off with his jewelry, cellphone and his gun.

Police found blood at the scene so they think he did manage to hit one of the robbers so they are looking at local hospitals for anyone that sought medical treatment and fits the description.

While we do applaud the CCW holder for thinking fast and using his firearm to defense himself, we always need to be thinking about situational awareness. He obviously was not aware of another robber which was able to tackle him to the ground. Now, his legally owned firearm is in the hands of a criminal.

No one knows when you will be robbed or you wouldn’t put yourself in that situation in the first place. It may be hard to stay in Condition Yellow at all times. You may just be getting off of work, tired and just want to get inside and hit the bed. But this leaves you vulnerable.

While we don’t know all of the details of this situation, it sounds like he was targeted and possibly followed. It is everyone’s right to own some of the finer things in life, such as the Porsche that this victim was driving. But just remember that fancy cars, jewelry, etc. can be flashy and attract the wrong type of people, in this case, a pair of robbers. If you choose to do so, this is all the more reason to keep yours head on a swivel and be aware of your surroundings.
