Huh? Where'd LUVADUCK go? Also, I don't see the deleted comments. Where they that bad?

Oops, never mind. Looks like he/she disappeared and came back.

Is there some way to skip the regular messages and just read the ones voted down by someone who doesn't believe in the US Constitution and feels is their duty to "sanitize" second amendment comments? I love irony and am always up for giggles & grins at the expense of self-important zealots.

Maybe instead of saving for a place to live I will practice my 2nd amendment rights and start buying guns too after all I have no felonies and I'm not registered to smoke medical pot.

LUVADUCK - 1. I agree and would love to be able to read deleted comments. 2. Not sure what you mean by not "believing" in the Constitution? Are you suggesting that when people down vote (ie, disagree with) pro-gun comments they are somehow violating the 1st Amendment? Opinions (eg, down-votes) are protected speech as well as pro-gun speech. Was that the "irony" you seek?

If you check out the choices on the down voting, it wasn't "Edhat Nanny" who did it this time but readers. MISSBLUE, thank you.

It's not clear from the little information provided that the gun owner was not following the law. Maybe the backpack was locked and in the back of the vehicle. Maybe the criminal broke the windows on the suburban. Remember, our county allows very very few concealed carry permits so they could not take the back pack ( or the gun) into Denny's with them. They would have to leave it in the car. The magazines should not be loaded in transit.

Looks like at 4:35 there are two down votes... By the way Flicka...we really appreciate your positive tone of your contributions and hope others will follow suit.

Someone down voted my comment about the down votes so it was removed. Edhat nanny sure has changed!

How about if you are an irresponsible gun owner, you lose your ability to own one; period. Zero tolerance. No excuses.

Good luck with that! ANY sensible regulation or legislation is considered by the gun nutz lobby as the beginning of the end... they'll be coming for all your guns next. They've gotten so good at fear mongering that any discussion on sensible solutions is to be met with hysteria and spittle spraying vitriol.

Not to make light of the stupidity of the gun owner, but what difference does it make if the gun was in a locked container vs a backpack when the entire container is taken, considering the container isn't required to be bolted to the vehicle from the inside?

I think the Penal Code also specifies that the weapon cannot be within reach of the driver. The gendarmerie really doesn't like accessible weapons when they're on a vehicle stop.

Mattyboy, that is an excellent question, but that is what the law requires. I doubt that the law is meant to deter theft. To me personally, this law only makes sense in terms of keeping said weapons away from children, which, given that many children today are not instructed about safe gun handling, is extremely important. When I was a child, I was not only taught gun safety and marksmanship, it was drilled into me that if I got near firearms without parental supervision, there would be H311 to pay!!! (there were no laws requiring that firearms be locked up back then).

Good to see how well gun control works in this state. Hannah-Beth, to the rescue. You have more work to do to keep us safe.

Irresponsible gun owners like this, who disrespect the laws, shoot all the rest of us responsible gun owners in the foot, as well as themselves. As was stated before: in a locked container, unloaded, and not in the glove box. This is precisely the kind of thing that fuels the prohibitionists in their futile pursuit to eliminate firearms through legislation.

OCEANDREW, The analog to your comment is that like missusing alcohol, shooting someone or even threatening them with a firearm is illegal. My point is that law abiding Citizens have a right o use both alcohol or firearms as long as they do it legally and responsibly.

CHANNELFOG, do drunk driving laws impair the ability of law abiding drivers and automobile owners to drive or own automobiles? Shutting down ANY discussion on the sensible regulation of deadly and easily abused tools only aids in increasing the carnage and kicking the bucket down the road.

Hi Oceandrew, please allow me to explain; my concern is that more laws DO impair those of us who are law abiding Citizens, while doing virtually nothing to disarm criminals, and that these efforts distract energy from a plethora of other social issues wherein such energy could realize positive, effective change for society.

Why would you be concerned that this is the kind of thing that fuels prohibitionists if the pursuit is futile?

Ughhh dummy to leave a loaded weapon in the car! Probably was unlocked and that's how it was taken. Hoping it's recovered fast! And glad That the theft was reported even though you know the gun owner is embarrassed.

PC§ 25610 [8].When being transported, handguns must be unloaded and in a locked fully enclosed container other than the glove box or any console attached to the vehicle.

I don’t mean you, btw, Roger. I meant whomever left their backpack/firearms in the car.

I'd offer the thief 50.00 Bucks but it's all I have 30.00 after I get to Rite Aide.

I was going to start the post with Smooth Move Exlax but I'm sure they feel bad enough they probably thought it was ok to leave the gun in the vehicle as Santa Barbara is such a sleepy little town where nothing bad ever happens.

If you haven't been out and about since the early '70's it was Bonanza Steakhouse back in the day.

Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on the exact model of the firearm I posted what I thought I heard and made this a Code Red because I'm sure this crime is a high priority case for the police as they want to get this gun off the street...

I do hope the person that ripped off the gun is a responsible gun stealing criminal.
