KATY, Texas (AP) — Thieves have stolen eight guns from a Texas sheriff's official vehicle that was parked outside a Houston-area restaurant during lunch.

The Waller County Sheriff's Office says Sheriff Glenn Smith reported four department guns and four of his personal weapons were taken.

Smith says one of his law enforcement jackets was also stolen by thieves who broke into his county-issued pickup truck Saturday at a restaurant in Katy.

Submitters note: This is how criminals get guns. Not through so called private sales loopholes.

The Year In Pathetic Gun “Buyback” Attempts

For many big-city officials, there’s nothing quite like a good gun “buyback.” They get lots of publicity, and they look (to the uninformed, at least) as if they’re doing something tangible to cut down on violent crime and accidental gun deaths. Gun “buybacks” are voluntary and pleasantly evoke reward instead of punishment for compliance; there’s an air of benevolent paternalism about them that probably gives many a mayor or police chief a sense of pride. The problem, of course, is that they’re worthless.

Officials say terrorist attacks and mass shootings in the U.S. create surges in gun sales and concealed weapon applications even if the events are far from Genesee County.

"It's a cycle," said Genesee County Clerk John Gleason. "Every time there is national news about a shooting, you see a spike. We really noticed it when Trayvon Martin was killed."

The county now averages about 500 applications per month.

Gleason also noted that the number of concealed weapons applications does mirror the number of gun sales.

"Compared to our Black Friday sales of that same weekend, we are up about 25 percent," said Brian Wright, Williams Gun Sight Company shooting sight operations manager.
