    Burglars did some unauthorized early Christmas shopping at Lynchburg Pawn Thursday morning, according to Lynchburg police.

    Burglars gained entry through the back of the building before smashing several gun cases and stealing 23 new high-quality semiautomatic pistols, according to the police press release.

    The pistols included models by Sig Sauer, Glock and Ruger, as well as an imported semiauto-matic AK-47 clone with an 11-inch barrel and no buttstock classified as a pistol by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

    Police ask anyone with information regarding the break-in to call (434) 455-6054 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 798-5900.
    Article says they were new? Pawn shops sell new guns as well as ones that people bring in to them?

    They are required to be licensed as an FFL, so they could sell new firearms if they choose to.

    I purchased my weapon at a pawn shop. It was new. You can sometimes get a better deal there, rather than dealing with a gun dealer.

    Lynchburg pawn advertises new firearms at various times. The most recent ad I saw advertised some Colt models being sold new. That area is rather dark in the evening with a train track running right behind, so I doubt anyone would notice people hanging out behind it.
