I don’t think that we are getting the full story.

Some random burglar decided to break into a random shed, and was lucky enough to be able to steal a bunch of guns? Yeah, right.

The concept of a ‘secure shed’ is one I’m still trying to wrap my head around, as well. It is surely an oxymoron.

I’m really bothered by this secure shed business. It doesn’t sound likd they had levally compliant storage for those weapons, wbich woulb be fotally irresponsible.

Are you leaning to the left??

No, I was on holidays, and typing on my mobile phone, which has a less than ferpect (heh heh) keyboard.

Should’ve proofread it before I hit submit. Mea culpa.
