The dramatic smash-and-grab burglary of a Bellevue, Washington gun store — the second such incident at that store in the past two years — was part of what appears to be a growing trend, according to data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Insider Online spoke with ATF sources who confirmed that during the years from 2012 to 2016, gun store burglaries went up 48.01 percent, from 337 in 2012 to 558 in 2016. Data for 2017 will likely be available sometime next month, noted Jan Kemp, ATF information officer in Washington, D.C.
This is how criminals get guns. Contrary to your stupid opinion they don't buy them at gun shows.
