I'm not sure it was because of a real reason or a BS one http://finance.yahoo.com/news/shop-sold ... 31774.html

I found this about the night of the raid, don't know how true it is but it was a local TV crew & at the time of the raid. I have a Brother in Law that lives in Windsor but have no idea of how close it is to him or if he knows anything about it, I'll have to give him a call.

Maybe part of why they lost their FFL was because they have been lax on security, over the last few years they have had weapons just "walk" out the front door. They also had severe inventory accounting problems.

An acquaintance of mine used to own a firearms store. One night, his store was broken into and robbed of several firearms. A fee nights later a phone call to a local pizza place was made. Two pizzas were ordered and an address was given. The owner of the pizza place called the person who made the order out on the address. The house was vacant and everyone in town knew it. The house in question was a few blocks from my girlfriend's house. 'Oh, we just bought the house and were working on it all day.', pizza shop owner believed the caller.

An hour later a car pulled up to the vacant house. Pizza delivery person was killed before he got out of the car. My girlfriend and I heard the gun shots and wondered what was going on. Two shooters, using stolen guns from the gun store in town. The acquaintance of mine, lost his FFL, his business, his house and was run out of town.

I need to add my input with this because there are a couple disturbing points here. First off, the only person guilty of committing a crime with a stolen gun is the person who pulled the trigger. Period. Gun stores should not be held accountable and gun owners who have their guns stolen (I don't care what your safe is like, if the right person has enough time, your guns are GONE) should not be held accountable. The person who pulls the trigger is at fault, period. This is just another form of scare tactic gun control wearing a cute little costume. Gun control is gun control, no matter how nice of a dress you put on it.

I read the article IOF, sick stuff. Reminds me of the sick teenagers in the Ukraine, The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs, who viciously slaughtered 21 innocent people with hammers and screw drivers, actually filming it and posting it online. They laughed and joked about it while they were doing it, like it was nothing more then a fun game. They did it just to do it. The sheep keep their heads in the sand, thinking people like this don't exist. They do. Everywhere. That is why we have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. That is why we are permitted to carry a concealed weapon. To make sure demon spawn like these scum bags cannot continue their terror. You see evil will always be evil until they are stopped. The more of us that practice our right to carry, and carry EVERYWHERE, the less often bad things like this will happen. Would be a$$holes are a lot less apt to be a$$holes when they know everyone is packing heat. As they say, an armed society is a polite society. Or, you can go the sheep route and wait for the police to show up while you are being beat with a hammer...your call.

Maybe this the real reason Riverview Gun Sales lost their license:

http://www.wfsb.com/story/20396452/east-windsor-gun-store-under-fire-after-man-caught-stealing-rifle

[..]
In a video obtained by Eyewitness News, Jordan Marsh, 26, of South Windsor, can be seen stealing an AR-15 with a scope just four days earlier.

Marsh was caught stealing a 50-caliber long gun from the Riverview Gun Sales on Saturday. Police found the AR-15 in a duffel bag in a room at the Hartford Hilton that day.
[..]
Police said Riverview Gun Sales had no idea the AR-15 Marsh stole was missing. Management at the store didn't know about 11 guns that Marsh had allegedly stolen last year until they were notified by detectives.

Inventory control issues at Riverview Gun Sales have occurred before. In 2007, state police raided a Somers home and found a bunch of stolen guns from the store.

"It was found that the same Riverview gun store was missing upwards of 30-plus guns," said East Windsor police Detective Matthew Carl.
[..]

How do you NOT notice 30-plus guns missing from inventory?

Aside from the gun loss, How can a store not know that they are missing that much inventory consistently over the years and stay in business. I don't know what the value of the missing guns were, but I'm sure it was more than a couple of bucks. I think that if they dig deeper the IRS might even find some tax issues as well.

I'm fairly certain that there is a law on the books that any guns stolen have to be reported to local police within a certain time frame. From some of the local comments I have read this stolen gun thing happened quite often but seldom reported, it was said to be known as a cash & carry out the back door dealer, it's all hear say right now but it will come out they could even get nailed with insurance fraud if that was the case.

Based on the news story this has absolutely nothing to do with Sandy Hook. As far as we know the guns used at Sandy Hook were purchased legally by the mother, and enhanced background checks would not have prevented the shootings. This appears to be nothing more than the media trying to capture additional ratings from the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Wait, I'm wrong. There is one thing in common with Sandy Hook. The 28 YO has mental issues and nothing was being done about it. Mr. President, when can we expect you and the Sandy Hook parents to lobby Washington for laws that address the REAL issues?
