If a pawn shop did that they would be screwed

Unless the law man owns the pawn shop. The only time I ever had my guns stolen I learned they were hocked at a gun shop owned by the Sheriff of Texarkana, Texas. That bastard bought my guns and kept them. The guy that stole them originally went to prison (for this theft and others) but the Sheriff stole them again.

30 years ago but I learned then the law is not blind.
