    HUH!?! The guy who broke the law got punished for it. It may be a bad law, but the law is clear, and he unquestionalby violated it.

    I really don't get where you're coming from on this.

    Coming right down the middle of the road. I don't remember the thief getting punished for stealing the gun.
    But "Jerome said the next day he discovered his pistol had been lifted from the car’s unlocked glove box and the driver’s side door was open."
    Even if the car door was locked (it wasn't) that doesn't seem to matter anymore either "Capt. Richard Conklin told The Register the state believes storing a firearm in a car – even a locked car – is not “a prudent thing to do.”

    Looked like Jerome was immediately arrested and stripped of his rights for reporting a stolen gun.

    Only curve ball is many laws are created to make our lives more difficult.
    What's the next law that we fold for? Because it's reasonable and for our own good.

    When is inconvenience an infringement?

    The thief hasn't been caught yet. When he is he will, no doubt, be punished.

    No. It doesn't look anything like that. What it looks like is that he was arrested because he violated the law concerning storage of a firearm. He broke the law. Plain and simple.

    If you want to argue that it's a bad law, we can do that (and I will probably -- mostly -- agree with you). But continuing to insist that he was arrested for making the stolen gun report is just ridiculous.

    Sorry, I'm the under educated welder that wants to help make a difference but has issues with clearly making his point in the written word.
    Yes, I think it's a crappy law and we did not gain our freedom by following all the laws.
    I'm going to make a couple aSSumptions.
    Jerome, his friends and most that hear about this are going to think twice about reporting a stolen or missing firearm.

    I will have to insist if Jerome kept his mouth shut Jerome would be missing one gun and we would not have this conversation.

    You don't sound undereducated to me. You sound spot on.

    Might work for a while. . . perhaps until the thief gets caught commiting a crime with the stolen firearm and then law enforcement is able to trace the firearm back to the owner that didn't report it stolen. Then there might be some splainin' to do!
