I have a 2019 Ford F-350. “Had” a safe. Truck was broken into caught of surveillance video at my house. Truck was locked and alarmed. Jerks had some kind of electronic over ride. Opened the door ripped my center console to pieces took the safe and my gun.Saw a spot on local news this morning discussing illegal and stolen guns. Apparently the vast
majority of the daily shootings in my town are using illegal (whatever that means) or stolen guns.
They went on to say most guns are stolen from businesses or vehicles. As for the vehicles
thieves target, vehicles with some type of gun related sticker or political emblems were
the #1 target. NRA, Trump, Sig, or anything gun or politics related.
Sure enough the reporter randomly stopped a few trucks in the parking lot. One had a "thin
blue line" sticker, the other NRA. Both guys said yes they had a gun on board, and neither had
safe in their truck.
I think it's a BIG stretch to make a correlation between logos or stickers and gun thefts,
but it does make sense to an extent.
They also talked about using safes in your vehicle, but that's a tough option to sell. Most safes
are easily removed and the one's that aren't almost have to be custom installed. Not to mention
thieves is the big city come prepared. Sledge hammers and pry bars are their "tools".
