Officers discovered the stolen gun in the possession of Jelani Lemon, 22, of Old Town Road, Bridgeport, who was later connected to 45 firearms allegedly taken from the same Shelton residence.
'lemon jelani'... isn't that, like, italian ice cream?

45 Guns? Just how many did he have if did not notice 45 were missing? Did he just have them laying around the house?

How do you keep guns out of hands of those who intend to do harm? I don't know that you can really.
You can create all the laws you want but most criminals aren't really much on obeying laws anyway.

What difference does it make.
Urine tests for welfare recipients. But if they pass a law that says I have to turn my guns in. They will as the saying goes, pry it from my cold dead fingers.

States with the most restrictive guns laws STILL have violence. I like the idea that the Government knows we have so many guns, kind of lets them know if it gets out of control we can shoot back.
What difference does it make.

#8 Apr 30, 2014 do you lose 45 guns over a period of time from the same residence? Sounds more like a gun-running operation to me.
