Federal agents are searching for two men they say stole hundreds of firearms from a UPS facility in Tennessee over the weekend.

Authorities said the men drove a U-Haul van to the UPS warehouse in Memphis Sunday, where they stole about 400 guns.

Investigators said surveillance footage shows one man in a black and gray jacket with dark pants and the other in all black. Both wore neon worker vests.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating and offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to arrests and convictions.

Authorities are also investigating whether the theft was an inside job.

The exact number and type of guns stolen is still being determined and investigators are still working on a timeline for the crime.

The guns were being shipped to various cities and companies.

Did they take lessons from this other guy doing the same thing at memphis UPS last december? https://wreg.com/2017/12/08/suspect-wanted-for-stealing-guns-from-ups-facility-arrested/

"According to authorities, Christopher Brown and several other men were caught on camera breaking into a locked tractor trailer at the East Holmes Road location. They reportedly loaded a dozen firearms into a private vehicle and then fled the scene."

Gang bangers were stealing them off of trains around here not too long ago according to the FBI. http://www.wdrb.com/story/25205191/fbi-louisville-police-to-address-youth-gang-memo

"YNO members are "armed in a major way." There is apparently a "gun train" that comes through the West End (specific location unknown) and stops for a couple hours every Sunday night (the reason for this stop is unknown). This train is legitimately transporting firearms from suppliers to retailers to be sold. The train is apparently heavily guarded by armed individuals, but YNO members have figured out how to sneak onto the train and steal guns."

Tell me again how banning bump stocks or making me wait extra days to get a gun is going to stop crime?
