As ABC reports, Surprise, AZ Police Chief Daniel Hughes was working out at the Mountainside Fitness center when someone broke into his locker, stealing his gun, badge, uniform, and police vehicle. The vehicle, an unmarked 2007 Chevy Tahoe, was recovered. The gun, badge, and uniform were not recovered.
This is yet another example of the fact that criminals who want guns will get them. Whether they steal from the police chief, the evidence room, or smuggle guns into the country, a criminal who wants a gun is going to have one. At the same time, gun control laws will disarm the law abiding citizens, preventing them from defending themselves against the gun toting criminals. Furthermore, the peaceful citizens who choose to keep their guns for self defense tend to be the ones prosecuted – not the violent criminals.
