    Police tackling new gun trend nationwide.

    "In what’s been a violent year in St. Louis, a common theme has emerged: The gun used in any given crime was probably stolen.
    [ ... ]
    “When they go to a baseball game or an event at the convention center … they can’t take their weapons in with them and they leave them in cars,” Dotson said. “Criminals know there are guns in cars and they break into cars.”
    [ ... ]
    "In San Francisco, the gun used to kill Kathryn Steinle, who was fatally shot in July as she walked with her father along a scenic pier, was stolen. Chicago has already seized nearly 4,700 guns - nearly all of them stolen - this year. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that’s seven times more guns seized than New York City, and three times the number in Los Angeles.
    [ ... ]
    “It’s a big issue,” Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Melissa Bujeda said. “Criminals are just going car-hopping, looking for unlocked doors and people who are leaving their guns in their cars.”
    [ ... ]
    “I think the message is that lawful people who want to have a gun, be smart about it,” Dotson said. “Don’t leave it unsecured in cars.”

    The smartest and safest place to have your gun is on your hip, uncovered or covered if necessary/required. The solution to the problem of stolen car-guns should be obvious, enable smart carry, and do not force LAC to risk theft.

    ..what was not "reported" is that Chief Dotsons' solution to the problem of guns [pistols] left in cars is to make unlawful the possession of a pistol outside of the home. See, problem solved, criminals will not have any guns.

    Imagine that, criminals breaking the law to get guns. It is amazing they did not think of stealing sooner.

    It is also amazing how many morons we have in government.

    problem with this is RSMO570 as amended by SB656, he CAN'T do that without going against pre-emptive state law. so frankly, he can stuff his liberal crap flapper. nothing he does to make a law will be enforceable.
