Anyone with information is asked to call police.
I have some information. Gun shops should have reinforced glass that cannot easily be breached. They should also have their merchandise secured in proper gun safes that cannot easily be compromised.
Gun shops, like individual gun owners, need to be more responsible for the security of their guns. Failure to do this should be a crime.
