Need not worry, more laws are coming.
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?
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.
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.
