    Why punish the victim of this crime? Surely it is the crooks that should be punished, life sentences for the theft of firearms would be a huge deterrent.

    Easy to say, but perhaps the keys were adequately concealed and whoever made entry to the house had inside knowledge? Who knows?

    Certainly makes you think about your own security, doesn't it?
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    "a Lamber double barrelled up and under 12 bore shotgun"

    May be the suspect is an Eddie Waring fan.

    The good news is the semi auto was a Hatsan so not too harmful if it gets used in crime, bad guy will be lucky to get a shot off without it jamming or falling apart!

    There isn't really enough information in that report to suggest that the certificate holder should have the book thrown at him. The police, quite rightly are focusing on finding the offender(s) and getting the firearms back. Good for them, although I'm sure someone will look at the circumstances and consider whether security measures were up to scratch.

    Why is this the default setting for so many in the shooting community?

    Instead of supporting a victim of crime, they are all too ready to throw someone under the bus and jump on the moral high ground. As already stated above, there is nothing to suggest that the individual had not taken reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised access to his firearms.

    You, Sir, demonstrate the biggest threat to shooting sports in the UK; the fractured, factions that are all too willing to offer up a sacrificial offering in a vein hope of distracting attention away from their own pastimes.

    Might I suggest a quick Google of Pastor Martin Niemöller.

    We should show solidarity and sympathy until proven negligence.

    If, however this was an attempt at irony, may I suggest the inclusion of an emoji to your post to avoid confusion.
