A Stratfield Road resident told police he last saw the guns over the summer.

A Stratfield Road resident reported to police Monday that three guns were likely stolen from his home.

According to police, the man last saw the guns when he took them out to clean them over the summer. He noticed Monday that they were missing.

He described the guns as a 9 mm MP5 rifle, a 45 mm HK tactical handgun, and a 22 mm Walther PP handgun, according to the report. Values were not disclosed in the report.

The complainant said family members and people doing work on the home had access to the residence since he last saw the guns, police said.

The guns were in a secured, padlocked case, according to the report. This is under investigation. Anyone with information should notify police at 203-254-4800.

Wonderful. So glad that gun owners can be trusted to keep guns at home where they are so "safe." And yet, we don't need any more regulation?!? Painful. This guy hasn't seen his guns in over 6 months. Why even own them?

Ooh Ooh Ooh ... Let's FINE HIM for not being a responsible gun owner. If the second amendment junkies hearts will stop beating without their guns let's fine them enthusiastically when they don't properly secure their weapons. That way we aren't "taking their guns and peeing on the constitution" yet we're holding them responsible. That's what this argument is all about isn't it? Personal responsibility? I don't want to take your guns. If, however, you cannot account for those guns, regardless of circumstances, you will pay a hefty price. It will pail in comparison to the damage they may do in the wrong hands ... but it's your gun and it's your fault it ended up in those hands. So you're at fault as well as the person who illegally obtained your weapon. No vilification needed. If you want a gun legally then have at it. Everything that weapon does from that point forward is your responsibility. Unless it's legally sold of course. At that point it's the new owners problem.

You get in more trouble for letting a 16 year old drink a beer on your property than you do if someone takes your poorly stored gun and kills someone. Nuts.
