A 2012 White Dodge Ram was stolen from El Rio Market, near the Ace Hardware in Santa Ynez, this morning around 6:30 AM. Two firearms are inside the vehicle.

It's unknown what direction of travel the vehicle went in, but the driver left the truck running while they went inside. When they came outside, the truck was missing.

The only description is a 2012 White Dodge Ram Truck plate possibly 29471N1. Noted heavy police presence on the southbound side of Highway 154 if they anticipated the driver was coming to SB.

Guns don't kill people, people who leave their guns in their trucks with the motor running at the hardware store and then someone steals their tuck do.

More guns. GUNS, GUNS, GUNS! This country is so sick deep in its soul. I will never be able to fathom our fascination and attachment to guns. REPEAL the 2nd Amendment, it's not Holy. We have ammended and repealed other parts of the constitution when something isn't working... and hey, something isn't working! I don't know what's worse either, someone with no moral compass in possession of stolen guns or some idiot who leaves a van running with guns inside it in front of a liquor store! Pfffft.

Oops - Ok, please tell us how civilians with guns protect our 1st Amendment right? Are the civilians with guns out there fighting wars to protect our nation from tyrannical foreign regimes ? No. The military is. Are civilians with guns defending us from our own government? No. The military would roll over all the gun owners in an instant. So please, please explain how the right for civilian's to own guns is protecting our fundamental rights (not just the 1st Amendment presumably). I'm interested to hear what you think. I think it's really insulting to service members to say that the civilians (via the 2nd Amendment) are the ones protecting our rights.

I don't think you understand how all this "law stuff" works. Let's just hope that we can all get along without the divisiveness, rhetoric, and lies. Look where all of the lies have gotten us so far....not very far at all. Peace to everyone.

Nearly 40,000 auto related deaths in the United States last year. Less than 15,000 murders by firearm in the United States last year. Those are just the stats. Risk of murder by firearm is exponentially increased in certain geographic areas of the United States. Unfortunately, this is not as true with auto related deaths as it is more odds game . Personally, I see it as only sensible to be in greater fear of dying in an automobile accident living in Santa Barbara California .

"A vehicle is just as dangerous as a loaded gun!" No, it's not. A vehicle, if used as directed and designed is perfectly safe. A loaded gun, if used as directed and designed is deadly or at least very destructive to whatever (or whomever) it is used as directed and designed against.

The NRA is an active advocate of gun safety. They teach hands on safety more than anyone. The NRA is a grass roots entity and advocates for the preservation of the US Constitution. So quaint and outdated. Leftist grass roots are the only worthy democratic advocacy groups.

No. The NRA is no longer a gun safety organization. It is a gun manufacturers lobby that is paid to promote the use and sale of firearms of all kinds and they will trumpet any drivel that gets people excited and motivated to purchase more guns. They don't care if you purchase a trunk full of guns legally or illegally. Like any arms dealer they don't mind supplying both sides of the legal divide.

The NRA used to advocate for firearms safety. Now they are shrill monomaniacs advocating for extremist, insane policies.

Ughhhh!! I really hope the person who took the truck ditched it before they realize there were guns in there. One can only hope!

Exactly right Roger, we have no idea who ripped off the truck, why some make references to some illegal alien killing someone I have no idea.

What the h*ll are you people talking about? Nowhere does it say the guns were not locked, in the glove box, etc. It just says 2 guns were inside the truck.

Doesn't say there was a baby in the passenger seat and an attack rottweiler in the back protecting it either but it doesn't mean it was there.

The law states that when being transported in a vehicle, guns must be unloaded, secured with safety locks, then locked in a case, and stored away from the passenger compartment. So in the trunk, NOT the glove box. In the case of a van/truck, must be stowed so as to not be readily accessible or visible. Ammo must be stored separately. This guy broke all those, apparently, and SHOULD lose his gun privileges AND be charged accordingly if these are used in the commission of a crime. Unbelievable.

Exactly. This kind of thing should go on a record or database and prevent this truck owner from ever buying guns in the future. Of course, the NRA will not take any responsibility, just blame the criminal for stealing the guns that were in a running truck......

Remarkably similar to the gun stolen from a fed agents car, and then used to murder Kate Steinle in the safe sanctuary city by The Bay....San Francisco. Sanchez will probably walk since he is a guest in our country. If you think what happened to Kate was bad, then you are considered a racist gun nut.

People who are born here or have legally immigrated here are not "guests," they are "citizens" or "residents," meaning this is there home Nor are we "guests" on this earth. A "guest" is "a person who spends some time at another person's home in some social activity, as a visit, dinner, or party." (Dictionary.com). "ANOTHER" is the key word here. It means you are at a home or place that is not your own, meaning you have your own home somewhere else. So, for all these folks who think we are merely "guests" here or "guests" on this earth, please tell me where our home is? If it's not here, then where is it?

"If you think what happened to Kate was bad, then you are considered a racist gun nut." This is the sort of strawman that racist gun nuts like to attack because they're too chicken to address peoples' actual positions.

YOU are also a guest in this country, don’t forget that. We are all just guest on this earth and it’s so sad the way we have decided to end our stay. With fighting, crime and pettiness. Just because this incident happened near the El Rio market does not mean the perp was Mexican. Wow. As soon as all you lefties and righties can start working together again a lot of the nonsense will go away.

If anyone is hurt or killed (God forbid) with those stolen guns, the truck owner should be held liable to some degree of negligence for leaving the truck running when it contained firearms. That's about as reckless as it gets!

I actually saw the CHP pull up to El Rio and then there were 6 CHP hidden by the time I got to the end of the pass. It was still dark out when I went by the El Rio. Yup, now we have two guns in the hands of someone with no moral compass.

I don't know what's worse. Someone with no moral compass in possession of 2 stolen guns or the so called "good guy with a gun" who leaves his guns unlocked in a truck left running and unattended in front of a liquor store. I miss the good ole days when the NRA was for gun safety not promoting the privilege of mindlessly careless individuals.
