    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are actively searching for a suspect who stole a fully automatic submachine gun from a gun show at the Metrolina Expo last weekend.

    The weapon is used by SWAT teams throughout the world. It was stolen from Altamont Tactical Outfitters’ booth at the Metrolina Expo on Statesville Road Saturday.

    The weapon, a Heckler & Koch HKMP5/10 MM, is valued at $4,000.

    According to the Heckler & Koch Web site, “Firing from the closed-bolt position during all modes of fire makes MP5 submachine guns extremely accurate and controllable.”

    Some 6,000 people attended the gunshow Saturday, and police believe the crowds may have aided the suspect.

    The dealer the gun was taken from said the weapon was laying on a table alone with the rest of his merchandise. Police believe the thief picked up the gun and walked out. He was likely never stopped or checked by security.

    Some gun dealers said there isn’t nearly enough security at gun shows. No security guards are stationed at the exits at the Metrolina Expo.

    No arrests have been made.

    So I guess that the dealer view these weapons as any other merchandise, like underware, so he can leave the table unatended? What a moron.

    I'll agree with that. I have been to that gun show before and frankly, I am not surprised that it happened.

    That sentence tells all that needs to be known about this situation. If a gun dealer is stupid enough to leave anything valued at $4k laying on an open table (much less a select-fire weapon...) and not be watching it like a hawk, he deserves the financial kick in the balls. IMO he should lose all his licenses too, for criminal negligence.
    What a moron.

    you would think he would have had it cabled up or somthing, besides it being auto, it was very pricey, all the gun show ive been to everything was either cabled down, or behind glass, except for acsesories, you know keep it back or under glass, if someone wants to see it let them, then put it back, i think the dealer shoud be at fault also, i mean come on he didnt steal a watch
