    Buffalo County sheriff: Machine gun (and several others) stolen

    http://lacrossetribune.com/news/loca...cc4c002e0.html

    Numerous guns were stolen Friday from a residence near Mondovi, Wis., including a fully automatic machine gun, according to the Buffalo County Sheriff's Office.

    Chief Deputy Colin Severson declined to say what type of guns or how many were stolen from the residence in the town of Naples, other than that "numerous" long guns and handguns were taken. The guns were not antiques.

    He said the machine gun was legally owned and that the residence is not a police officer's home, but declined to be more specific. It is illegal for most people to possess a machine gun in Wisconsin.

    Anyone with information about the burglary can call the sheriff's office at (608) 685-4433, or the Tipster line at (608) 685-2847.

    Beware of the evil paradigm of consideration, expectation, then requirement.

    Yeah, it'd probably be considerate to store NFA weapons in a safe. I'm sure the NRA and safe manufacturers teach/expect safe storage. And I'm sure the statists would love to require it. It is about control of ALL aspects of life, not just gun control.
