Over at Arms and the Law, I see a story about theft.
The objects stolen were firearms (newly-manufactured, most likely in transit to a dealer). The thieves sold the firearms to like-minded criminals.
A couple of the criminals were caught, and confessed.
This kind of story is rare; but it points out several things. Among them, that laws about background checks don't get in the way of criminals who are capable of finding and stealing what they want.
I wonder what the insurance costs were on that shipment, and who the insurer was...
