Another attempted gun store burglary using carjacked vehicles as battering rams happened last night here in Indy. They knocked the little entry foyer half off the front of Bradis guns out on the southwest side of town, only to be confronted with another, inner hardened steel entry door.
Like anybody raised on Hollywood, they tried to shoot that lock off, which appears to have only put a hole in the doorknob. Stymied, they then fled in the non-battering-ram vehicle.
One supposes that a larger vehicle and a more judicious choice of ramming points on the rather large half frame building and they probably would have made entry, but if they were smart, they'd have jobs and could just buy guns.
The easiest way to prevent crooks from using carjacked cars to break into gun stores would be to shoot them when they were trying to carjack the cars, of course, but I doubt Mayor Hogwarts will stumble across such an obvious solution.
Last night Mayor Hogswatch was giving the State of the City address and proposing a gun crime snitch line. See an illegal gun, call it in, and get $750 if they bring charges against the guy. "Hello, yes, gun snitch line? I see a guy with an illegal gun. Where? Right here at 38th & Post. He's sticking it in my face and telling me to get out of the car."
