    Semi automatic, full auto, who cares a gun is a gun but the main part of the story is STOLEN. Don’t let your crazy fears of the government coming to take all your guns away take away from the story.

    Everyone able bodied adult in this country should have at least 3 weapons and 1000 rounds plus of ammo at all times. The government wants to take away everyone's guns so they will have less resistance when they declare martial law and enforce a true police state, whereas setting up happy camps for all the "terrorists" to go so the rest of cattle will feel secure. Give me a break. This story about stolen guns will be the least of our problems when people wake up and realize the billions being squandered by our own government. Buy now while you can and protect your families.

    Isn't this the kind of thinking that perpetuates the shootings that happen in the poorer communities? "If anyone threatens me, I'll pull my gun & shoot. How many shooting do we hear about outside the nightclubs? In the neighborhood streets at night? It happened in Vanceboro the other night. Nobody really wins, do they?

    FYI "semi-automatic" weapons mean you pull the trigger once and ONE bullet is expelled this story is printed to mislead people to believe that AUTOMATIC weapons (machine guns) were found this is an example of the media playing on people's fears.

    Do any of the "gun control " crazies even know how a semi auto works ? I've seen a pro rabbit hunter down in Ga who could fire his single shot 20 ga as fast as a lot of people can fire a semi.
