Is anyone really surprised at this?
The law makes it plain that a law-abiding citizen cannot carry a firearm in certain places and must leave it at home or in his car. Now criminal are breaking onto cars where they know there is a higher probability of a gun waiting to be stolen.
The only real surprise it it took this long for the thugs to figure it out. It's a good bet that it will take the authorities even longer to figure out what to do about it.
Decals aren't the only thing criminals are looking for, police said they are also going after vehicles parked at places where concealed weapons are not allowed inside like businesses or schools, places where there's a high likelihood gun owners have left their firearms in their car
