According to LATimes Democratic California Rep. Karen Bass’s home was broken into but the thieves were curiously selective. They didn’t take her money, electronics, or anything much of value. No, they stole her unregistered guns that were supposed locked away—Almost as if they knew they were there.
The Five hosts, Jesse Watters and Jeanine Pirro expressed suspicion Thursday saying that the story ‘stinks’ and I have to admit—It really does.
“The confusing story of the Democrat whose guns were stolen from her house is still as muddy as ever,” Watters said, discussing the Sept. 9 incident. “Cops arresting two men for burglarizing Democrat congresswoman Karen Bass’ house. She’s also running for L.A. mayor. The perps stole two registered handguns that were in a lockbox stashed in a closet. No cash, jewelry, or electronics were grabbed at all.”
The quick arrest was noted by Pirro, who claimed that 91% of residential burglaries are unsolved, but raised questions in the aftermath of Bass’s public statement.
“I have more doubts than before,” Pirro said. “Here’s the thing, the burglary – it’s a residential burglary which in California, the most [time] that you can serve is six years, according to their penal statute. And it occurs on September 9th. They make an arrest on September 13. Now, that’s a pretty good closure rate.”
“Why is her place in disarray when there’s valuables, there’s cash, there’s all kinds of, what did she say, electronics available?” Pirro asked. “And they go to a lockbox. So I look up Brinks – the lockbox. It doesn’t have a mirror on it, it doesn’t say gun, it’s just a box, and she says it’s stashed in the closet. How do they know what’s in the box in the closet that’s stashed, and they forego everything else? There’s something screwy about this.”
Federal law has provisions addressing stolen firearms under 18 United States Code 922(i) and (j). Violations can receive punishment up to ten years in federal prison, according to 18 United States Code 924.
LATime also reported that police to have two people in custody in connection with the burglary of Bass’s home. No word on where her guns are. Kind of ironic, that the politician calling for more gun control has her guns stolen—but nothing else. Does that seem weird to you?
