How The Bad Guys Get Guns

Over 100 Ruger Pistols Stolen From Chicago Train Yard

It appears that over 100 Ruger pistols were stolen from a Chicago train yard by gangs in a one-time heist. Apparently, this is becoming a large problem in a city that prides itself on its strict gun control measures with over 150 firearms reported stolen from Chicago train yards since 2013. City leadership seems rather clueless about the root cause of the problem, one alderwomen was quoted as saying “How in the world are these kids getting these guns? I see them on Facebook. Everybody got guns. They can’t go purchase a gun, so where are they getting them from?”

It appears that train cars containing firearms are being specifically targeted somehow and is being looked into by the Chicago Police Department. The only way a firearm can be shipped by rail is through the United States Postal Service, most likely by Federal Firearms License holders due to shipping regulations.

You can read more about the theft over at the Fox News website where they covered it in much greater detail (with a political slant as you might imagine.) Even though the story smacks of political overtones, it is interesting to see what happens when a larger problem goes unnoticed while blaming the tool for actions.

Obviously, ‘they’ are ignoring the fact that they are purchasing guns through FFL-licensed dealers (after they obtain their Illinois FOIA card), and that the only way to curtail these purchases is further, more intrusive background checks!/(snark)MAROONS!

  1. Ignoring the painfully obvious while staring at it is the M.O. of the Left. But, of course, Fox News is “slanted”. Sigh …

  2. train cars containing firearms are being specifically targeted somehow

    It’s a total mystery alright, real head scratcher…..
    Is there a guy working at the train station who has a wife driving a brand new car he shouldn’t be able to afford?
    I’m just some schlub but maybe start looking there?

  3. More and more I wonder “Would it be asking too much for you to try to rub 2 brain cells together?” And I avoid certain people because I’m afraid I’d say just that…

    Thanks for your reply article.
    The older I get, the more “what are you people thinking?” comes to mind.
