When Only Cops Have Guns . . .

…They’ll be targeted for their guns. It’s a funny thing — criminals being criminals, they tend to take what they want. And some of the things they seem to want most are firearms. Who knew? It’s not clear from this TV nooz report whether or not the burglars who’ve been knocking over houses in the formerly sleepy San Francisco exurb of Brentwood in Contra Costa County specifically targeted cops’ homes looking for heaters. The report lists the three peace officer pad break-ins as part of a string of twenty-five. But here’s some good news — at least one of the boys in blue actually stored his gats in a safe (which the bad guys appropriated and cracked elsewhere). The report conspicuously avoided mentioning if the other two cops’ gun storage practices were fully Cali-compliant. ¬†Guess we’ll never know.
