NOTICE TO ALL GUN OWNERS!!!! Tagging a Gun Owner's Vehicle
If you own a gun
and therefore go to gun ranges or gun shops, you might want to read the
attached and keep this in mind…..and share the word with your
TAGGING GUN OWNERS VEHICLES PSA WARNING
Gun lovers public service announcement: While I was in a Texas gun store
today, my car was tagged on the wheel in the parking lot. The gangs do
this on wheels or bumpers at gun stores, shooting ranges, gun shows etc.
Later when you are parked at a restaurant, hotel, or other location
that’s less well guarded or under video surveillance, other gang members
spot the marker and break into the car for a quick gun grab. This is so
RAMPANT in San Antonio where we were for a National shoot this summer,
the Sheriff of Bexar County came out to brief the 400 participants of
our competition. Too bad three teams had already been victimized the
first day. This is the first I’ve heard of this in Texas.
Please pass this info along to your 2nd amendment list. Daily check your
car, truck or motor home for unusual painted dots, marks, check marks
or other strange looking symbols that are not normal to your type
vehicle. It could prevent you from being a victim of robbery, or even
save your life if you catch the thief in the act.
This next comment from a Gun Site instructor:
I don’t know how widespread this is becoming, but the info regarding
the NSCA Nationals in San Antonio is correct, as all of us who compete
in sporting clays know. Competitors there were having their
vehicles marked with a small adhesive dot on the rear license plate or
rear bumper, then followed for miles and having their vehicles quickly
and efficiently broken in to when parked for lunch etc.
crews were working the parking lot at the Nationals itself. 27 high end
shotguns were taken there recently. They know when 1400 shooters with
high $$ competition guns are in town.
BTW I shot with a young
man who was trying out a new gun at the Nationals. He and his father
lost all their guns and equipment while making a quick stop for lunch at
a BBQ place in Corpus Christi the month before.
So please when attending a gun show, going to the range or at the gun store. Check your car for any unusual markings that their before.
