67 Guns Stolen From Truck at Academy

Academy Sports and Outdoors

Reminder that criminals do not care about gun laws. If a criminal cannot buy a firearm, they will steal it.

Rather than making it difficult for law abiding citizens to obtain a firearm, maybe the anti-gun establishment should pass stricter laws for people who steal guns?

The driver of an 18-wheeler parked behind an Academy in Olive Branch, Mississippi, then went to sleep in his truck. The next morning he woke up and discovered that his truck had been broken into.

Olive Branch Police Chief, Don Gammage, said the truck driver parked in the back of the store Sunday night.

“He got up this morning around 6:00am and discovered that his trailer had been broken into,” said Gammage.

Chief Gammage said two of the guns were high power assault rifles, several were shotguns and the rest were handguns.

Chief Gammage said it’s still too early in the investigation to say this is an inside job but said detectives are questioning employees and the driver adding, “We have no reason right now to believe that he was involved in anything but this is still an ongoing investigation.”

I would like to know what kind of “high powered assault rifles” Academy Sports and Outdoors is selling? The last time I went into Academy in either Port Arthur or Beaumont Texas, there were no assault rifles for sale. All the store had was the AR-15, AK-47 and the Ruger mini-14. None of which are either “high powered” or “assault rifles.”

Was the National Firearms Act of 1934 repealed so everyone can buy a fully automatic or selective fire rifle? If so, I need to go to Academy and get one of those “high powered assault rifles.”  Maybe law enforcement should be more careful of the terms they use so they do not spread fear and misinformation.
