    Brighton, Vermont - August 11, 2008

    Vermont State Police are looking for suspects after burglars broke into a state police cruiser and stole a high-powered gun and ammo.

    It happened at the trooper's home on Route 105 in Brighton.

    Police say sometime over the weekend someone smashed out one of the cruiser's windows and removed a gun case containing an M-16 patrol rifle and a large quantity of ammunition.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact their local police department.

    Why is every gun either "high powered" or "semi automatic" when it comes to news stories.

    Why is that patrol man leaving his high powered baby killing machine gun in his car rather than inside of a gun safe unassembled and with trigger lock on it?

    Seriously. If I leave a gun in my car my car never leaves my sight.

    30...you really think they'd keep one chambered? Maybe if it was a holstered Glock while giving a presentation in front of a packed classroom.

    It wasn't an M16
    Probably an AR

    I would expect a great deal more hysteria surrounding the loss of something with a happy switch - like declaring martial law in half of the state and hours of CNN coverage.
