Gun Guy: 1700 Guns Were Stolen in Marion County in 2017 - and It's Our Fault

IMPD Chief Bryan Roach and Guy Relford discuss ways to reduce the number of guns ending up in the hands of criminals

On Saturday's The Gun Guy Show, IMPD Chief of Police Bryan Roach and I discussed ways to reduce the number of guns stolen in Marion County - after an astounding 1700 guns were stolen in Indianapolis last year.

A large percentage of stolen guns are obtained by thieves breaking into vehicles.  As responsible gun owners, we should avoid leaving a gun in our vehicles, but if we must leave a gun in our car or truck, we should lock it up.  A wide assortment of safes are available for our vehicles, like the console safe that I have in my GMC pickup truck.  Safes are also available for long guns that fit under the the rear seat of a vehicle or in the back of a SUV.

In our homes, we can balance accessibility with security.  Modern safes can be opened with a fingerprint or a quck-access code to allow us to defend ourselves and our homes if necessary, but still prevent the theft of a gun by a burglar or intruder.

Hear my whole conversation with Chief Roach here - and together, let's do a better job of keeping our guns out of the hands of criminals:
