    Where were the Pawn shops alarms system, cameras and bars on the windows to guard against this.

    "IdoN0TliveinDurham, shouldn't you be keeping obamas sac warm right now ..."

    This is the funniest reply of the whole tread.

    Records are required...but they are stored AT the pawn shop.

    Not all pawn shops deal with firearms.
    A FFL, Federal Firearms License, is required.

    Records are required, will not be easy to find all of the
    firearms but they will be on the 'hot list'.

    Most likely they are in NY City or DC by now.
