A Gun Safe in the Open

Is a Gun Safe at Risk

The Three Problems:

Gun safes attract criminals

Many times it’s innocent: a cleaning lady, repairman, gardener or even child’s friend may absentmindedly mention to the wrong person that they saw a large safe in your home.

Point burglars to your valuables

An obvious safe is like gift wrapping to a burglar who breaks in to your house. Why spend their time searching your home when they know where the valuables are?

Safes are easy to defeat

If burglars can’t break in through the front, they’ll try the side. Or they may carry out the entire safe. Why put your valuables to the test of a criminal’s skills?

What the FBI says.

Firearm’s are frequently targeted by criminals across the nation. Many locations used for long term gun storage are at high risk. As The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports:

“An average of 232,400 firearms are stolen each year from households. 68% of property crimes involve firearm theft.”

– 2010 National Crime Victimization Survey by BJS.

As SafeWise.com, a popular security website, details: “Make no mistake, burglars crave this most commonly stolen item. But the last thing you want is for your stolen weapon to be used by a criminal in the commission of a crime”. You value your guns, but unfortunately thieves do too – and they know where to look.

What real criminals say.

Recently, Channel 5 NBC of St. Louis completed a fascinating study: they received written responses from 86 convicted thieves serving time in jail revealing how they broke in to houses. One inmate made a point directed at proud gun owners about how he determined which houses to break in to:

“NRA sticker on car bumper = Lots of guns to steal.”

 – written in the KSDK Interview.

As another convicted thief said:

“I would leave everything else to get this – nothing means more to me than the safe.”

– written in the KSDK Interview.
