Hi,

Under the state public records law, I am a journalist writing to request data from your department as part of a national project on stolen firearms. Can your department please provide the following:

1) Number of guns that were stolen in each 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

2) Number of guns that were stolen from motor vehicles in each 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. For this category, please include any firearm stolen during a motor vehicle theft, carjacking, larceny from a motor vehicle and burglary of a motor vehicle.

For both Nos. 1 and 2, we are only seeking the number of guns stolen for each year, not police reports or any other details. If possible, please include only the number of stolen firearms, not lost firearms. If lost firearms must be included, please advise us.

Brian,

I have attached a spreadsheet for the stolen gun data. Just be aware that we are not able to distinguish with our records system which guns were stolen from vehicles or not. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
