    They did until the legislature outlawed it. I saw a few posts on national gun forums where they posted the address of one of WRAL's editors, along with stuff like his wife and daughters name and where she went to school. Lots of their personal info was made available. You can look it up.

    Anyone who thinks that the gun owner should share the responsibility as the criminal is crazy and I honestly mean that.

    Thats just like saying the airlines are guilty for the terrorists flying into the twin towers or car manufactures being responsible for wrecks.

    My gun "Fat-Boy"safe weighs 900 lbs. (empty) and is by no means a small safe. If someone tried to walk off with this one, they would not get very far. Quite possibly they would need surgery to repair the rupture they got trying to move it. It took 3 men, professional movers who delivered the safe about an hour to get it in the house and set in place.

    The home owner was very responsible due to the fact that he owned a gun safe and he used it. The only negligence that "MAY" have happened is if he left the safe open and unlocked. I rather doubt that though.

    I'm amazed he stole the safe. So next step to keeping your weapons safe is to bolt down the safe, and hook it up to a car battery?

    Um no it wouldn't. First that perp was in someones house uninvited, Second the gun owner did what he was legally supposed to do with his guns. So he would not be to blame for anything. So how do you figure the gun owner was irresponsible? So I broke into your locked car on your property and drove off and killed someone while driving your car, Then by your logic you are just as guilty as I am, right. Would you share the blame in that? I don't think so. Your logic is a liberal way of thinking.

    Read the article. He stole the entire gun safe! Sure, charge the legal gun owner for being irresponsible while having them locked in a safe.

    So putting your weapons in a safe is irresponsible?

    So what about an accomplice? Surely he didn't steal a safe and guns in it by himself. I have a safe and it weighs several hundred pounds not including contents.
