Concealed weapons are now legal inside bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, in parks and on school campuses, if they are locked in cars.
Some drivers may be making themselves a target for thieves to break in and go after their guns.
Just a few weeks ago, police in the University Division arrested a group of suspects officers say broke into cars specifically looking for firearms. They looked for various gun-related decals and bumper stickers to pick their targets.
Larry Hyatt, owner of Hyatt Guns said, “They’re really advertising to criminal they may have a gun in their car so it may not be the best place to make those statements on the bumper of your car.”
Hyatt said thieves have even lurked in his parking lot.
