So, you're okay with the police stealing the rest of his guns out of his house?

If you're going to be careless enough to leave a gun in an unlocked vehicle.... what makes anyone think you're not also going to be careless enough to leave your house unlocked with weapons inside, ripe for the taking?   Idiocy.   I have no sympathy for people this stupid.  Sorry.

The person is a dumbass.   Leaving a weapon, whether loaded or not, in an unlocked vehicle is about as dumb as it gets.   One might expect this idiot to also leave his front door unlocked when he leaves, with weapons inside.   Personal responsibility is something any gun owner must be cognizant of if they want to be a gun owner.   Idiots like this  one give the rest of us a bad name/rep statistically... as they give the anti-gun ownership left more than enough ammo to justify yet more anti-gun ownership laws...

and I don't appreciate that.
If being a dumbass was a crime, this would be a real prison planet.

I don't leave my firearms in vehicles, locked or otherwise. I normally don't lock my vehicles, because if there was anything in there worth stealing, someone could just break the glass, something my insurance doesn't cover.

So you are justifying the theft of the rest of the person's firearms BY POLICE FROM HIS HOUSE because of a lapse in judgement, because the left could use that to take firearms from the rest of us. Nothing like throwing gun owners to the wolves to make sure you get eaten last.
I would wager this person would be more vigilant about securing their firearms in the future--IF THEY HAD ANY!
Just checking...and disgusted, no matter how you spin it.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

He had a weapon in his car that, as far as I can tell, was unlocked. Glove compartment was unlocked too.

Off-topic but serious question:  When was the last time you had a "glove compartment" that locked?

This story is just another story about a far-Eastern state behaving as far-Eastern states do, as we expect.  That has a lot to do with why those of us in the far-West live here.  The laws back East suck in many ways, not just the gun ones.  They are no different than California, Oregon and Washington state.
