  • Don’t worry ACE HARDWARE they will show up in the Devils playground during the next sweep.

  • I thought you had to go through a back ground check before obtaining a gun.

  • What make and model were the $3700 rifles. ACE Hardware? I would have figured Mossbergs or Winchesters, but not $3700 dollar Mossbergs or Winchesters.

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      Yeah, $1850 a firearm sounds high, but could be commemorative or fancy AR. Would be great to know. Maybe a big-bowed specialty lever brushgun from some high-falutin’ start-up. It boggles the mind. Inquiring minds want to know.

      • Im thinking Colt Ar-15’s. Hoping the Macktown Boyz dont have em for the war against 18th st gang…

        • 2 AR15s were stolen according to a source. The stocks were broken in the theft as they were left in the debris. Security cables were cut to get at them, and those were the only guns that were lifted, not any of the others they also could have taken. More damage was done trying to get them than the value of the firearms.

    • Bumpin up the insurance humdum styleee…
      May want to see if it’s an inside job….

      Like building 7was.

      This would not have happened if home depot was on the balloon track, just sayin….

  • Store owners should have to keep guns locked in a gun safe so that they cannot be stolen.

  • The problem here was not enough guns, if there were armed guards in the parking lot this wouldn’t have happened.
