I think the law should be changed to reflect the greater seriousness of this crime. It is not simply about the theft, it is the theft of firearms with the intent to redistribute illegally. To steal countless guns and then sell them to people in the neighborhood thereby creating further opportunity for even greater crimes, if not countless crimes. This is far more serious than simply thieving and dealing in stolen goods.

You are more right than you may know.
How about selling to domestic terrorists?
These people don't care who they sell to.
This is where the "gun on the street" comes from, not a legal source.

Why didn't the Ostrander Police handle this? Was the Chief to busy playing Dateline to be on patrol?

Well now all they'll be able to play with are their guns. I myself have a nice collection. I stole none of them but worked two jobs to get them. Oh well. Telling somebody from "the Hill" to work hard would just be a waste of breath now wouldn't it?

WHAT IN THE HELL IS THIS KIND OF SENTENCE? Five years (they will be out in probably two) for this kind of grand theft? The jury did it's job with a guilty verdict; however, The judge must have manure for a brain! It should have been 15 years MINIMUN! I would probably get more time for not having a CCW permit if I, a law-abiding citizen, never been arrested, had to use one of my firearms to defend myself in a proper way.

Holy cow! This state is getting like Obama's People Republic of Illinois!

The real question here is, did the police recover ALL the stolen weapons or just part of them? Some of them may still find there way to the wrong people anyway. Again five years for something that has significant consequences to the public?

This guy will be back on the street doing the same thing again because it's what he wants to do. When will the lawmakers and judges ever figure it out?

Those pesky Guns...

Hundreds of them.

Five years is not enough for this brazen crime...

Which had the potential to cause over two hundred deaths.

Sad.

Friend, there are millions of them (guns)- you have to learn to live with them even if you do object to them on the most guttural level.
Use the skills you have and arm yourself as well - keep safe, and live well.
