A man at a Kentucky gun shop was caught on camera putting a rifle down his pants and walking out of the store.
While the clerk was helping another customer the thief took an AR-15 off the wall, stuffed it into his pants and swiftly walked out. Surveillance video captured the man in the act and driving off in a white SUV.
The surveillance cameras were just installed last week at Sling Point Firearms and the owner was surprised at the thief’s brazen move.
“I would have never guessed that someone would be that bold and that stupid,” said Jimmy Johnson with Sling Point Firearms.
“It would be nice if someone would have the guts to step up and let us know who it is so we can get our merchandise back,” said Johnson.
While this is the first shoplifting incident at Sling Point Firearms, this isn’t the first theft. Four years ago, a stolen car was driven through the front door. The men in it got away with several of the guns.
This time the thief only got away with the one rifle worth about $900 but the store wants it back.
“It’s just sad that people in our little town try to take advantage of people just trying to make an honest living,” said Johnson.
We are told that background checks will stop criminals from ever getting their hands on guns. After all, if a criminal cannot pass a background check how can he ever legally obtain a firearm? News flash — criminals break laws and they don’t get all their guns at gun shows (unless they are breaking into cars at gun shows as we have seen happen in North Carolina).
We can argue all day long about how the gun shop should have had better security and should have locked down its firearms better, but let’s not forget to blame the guy who actually stuffed the rifle down his pants and walked out of the store.
Gun grabbers hate this guy. This patriot created a brain-dead simple system to insulate himself from the “routine” ammo shortages and gun control plans. Get your ammo independence now. CLICK HERE. (sponsored)
