Headline: Firearms stolen from Buckeye Outdoors during break-in

by Chad D. Baus

The Newark Advocate reported recently that firearms were reported missing after a break-in at Hebron, OH's Buckeye Outdoors.

From the article:

Officers were called to the store at 10:36 p.m. on reports of an alarm triggered by broken glass, said Lt. Larry Brooks, with the Hebron Police Department. Officers found several firearms missing from the store, Brooks said.

Newark and Pataskala police were called to assist in looking for the robber or robbers, bringing in K-9 units to search the store. The robbers were not located.

...The store does have a security system in place and police officers are looking into whether there is a video recording of the break-in, Brooks said.

Let's pretend for a moment that the gun ban extremists' "universal background check" scheme to license all law-abiding gun owners was already in place. Does anyone thing that these gun thieves would be sure to ask anyone they sell their stolen guns to to submit to a background check?

Of course not. If passed, so-called "universal" background checks would be nothing of the kind. Instead, they would be another regulatory burden that would only effect law-abiding gun owners and retailers completing legal transactions, with the ultimate goal of giving the Federal government the power to register all law-abiding gun owners.

The criminals, of course, would continue on as they always have.
