Ok, two guns were stolen and recovered? From vehicle break ins? Who leaves guns in their cars, when they're parked out on the street or in their driveway? That's awfully careless and thoughtless. I never leave it in my car, even in my garage at home. It's either on me, or it's at home, in my home..within reach. Never leave a firearm in an unattended vehicle.
