But wait. I thought background checks are supposed to stop things like this from happening. Anti-gunners must be in shock that criminals who are in the habit of breaking the law didn’t subject themselves to background checks (which they would have had to pass in order to buy these guns at Walmart).
The reporter calls these guns “assault weapons”, but in reality they are simple semi-automatic rifles with no capability of automatic fire. But you can’t blame the crooks entirely in this case, as Walmart employees did a very stupid thing which led to the theft of these guns.
Sources say that the guns were locked in a new gun case, but the key to the gun case was taped to the back of the case.
According to localmemphis.com,
A Memphis Police spokeswoman says two rifles were stolen on January 27th. On February 11th, seven more rifles worth a total of $6,400 were stolen.
A Walmart spokeswoman says all of the guns and ammunition at the store on the 500 block of Germantown Parkway have been locked up, and customers can purchase them by talking with a manager.
“They need better security on their stuff,” Bo Martin said. “There goes the crime rate.”
You can’t argue with Martin’s logic. After all, it’s the ones who break the law to get their guns that are the ones actually committing the crimes with their guns. This is why implementing universal background checks so fathers can’t pass guns down to their own children without a background check does nothing to curb violent crime.
Still, Walmart’s security was horrendous in this case and could lead to very serious incidents with these guns.
