Controversial “Muslim Free” Gun Store Burglarized, Some Question Surveillance Video

INVERNESS (CITRUS) – The controversial gun store owner who made headlines for declaring his business a “Muslim Free Zone” is back in the news again, after several guns were stolen from his business during a burglary Tuesday morning.

Florida Gun Supply owner Andy Hallinan captured surveillance video of what he says are images of two burglars breaking into his store and stealing several firearms.

Hallinan says around 3:30 a.m. burglars stole 14 firearms, including handguns and long rifles, that were unsecured throughout the store. Hallinan says “99% of the time I keep my firearms locked up and put away.”

Hallinan claims ADP failed to notify the Sheriff’s Office of the break-in but that he did receive a text message of the breach. The Sheriff’s Office confirmed that an investigation is underway but would not elaborate on the details.

Immediately after the burglary, Hallinan posted the surveillance video to social media and included an offer to win a firearm. Some Facebook commenters questioned Hallinan for using his misfortune to promote a gimmick. Anita Stover said “Is this a gimmick to get you to register to win the Glock 22?” Hallinan replied (sarcastically) “Yes. We hired people to rob our gun store to get your attention.” Hallinan later posted “I knew this video would get a lot of shares. Why not show people we won’t back down or be afraid?”

Hallinan is an advocate for protecting the Second Amendment and has produced videos and organized rallies to support gun owner rights.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

  • Well if the owner himself did not know these individuals were going to hit his establishment then they must be the luckiest stupid thieves in the world……… Under NORMAL things how would they know all those guns were left out that night?

    The owner made a statement that 99% of the time they lock them up??? Okay so he is saying the 1% was this night and these 2 just happened to know they were going to get lucky??? MOST gun shops or pawns have high end stuff in a safe and the handguns are locked in a glass case……

    POINT: These 2 idiots smash a window and leave the hammer that would be the tool to smash the glass case the guns would normally be locked in “left it outside?”

    POINT TO THE POINT: THEY “KNEW” Those guns were going to be left out…………. This guy has to be the BIGGEST DUMB *** or just does not use his head??? I have seen where he is personally being sued in that County Court for over $110k in risk of losing home, land and possibly his business which is in debt big time and he is also asking for help to raise money to fight for custody??? IF this is all true that is CLEAR CUT MOTIVE for the ATF to deny his license back and close him down……. They do not have to PROVE he did it, set it up all they have to do is prove he had motive………

  • No matter what a RESPONSIBLE gun store owner should of locked up his guns in the One gun in the wrong hands is too many guns in the wrong hands! He should not be able to have a license to sell, much less too carry!

  • And out come the victim blaming muslim apologist ‘all the bad guys just need a hug’ ****tards – this mans business was broken into, his livlihood is damaged and all you grade school morons can do is bully him – as a small business owner myself I know how hard it is to keep it going every day without some filthy scumbag stealing your stuff

  • Lets wait for the FBI and ATF to complete their investigation and see what turns up…….. While I feel it is strange that the supposed 1% the guns were left out like this was really questionable because it is CLEAR in the video these 2 KNEW those guns were waiting for them…. I have seen many saying the scoped the place out??? Okay well look at it from this angle; You go to a gun shop to scope things out…… You see the glass case the guns are normally locked in and say hey we can do this………. Then WHY? did they not bring the hammer in with them to bust the glass case??? They come smashing through the window and just went right to the one counter that had all these guns just sitting there???? We will see but looking at this from a Law Enforcement stand point when and if I found these guys my 1st question would be “HOW THE HELL DID YOU KNOW THOSE GUNS WOULD BE THERE LIKE THAT?” THIS SMELLS!!!!

  • I think this is lousy coverage, you said the police would not respond so you automatically pretend to know more than they do. When they bring out the evidence is the time to start problems. You are looking people to look at your fake news instead of reporting the truth. I for one am not happy that you would try to destroy someones character with this garbage. I am sure from looking at other post that mine will be deleted but at least someone has to read it first. I have dealt with Andy and his store many times in the past year or so and have always been treated with respect. The least you could do is treat him in kind.

  • NO MATTER WHAT you do a crook will get to your stuff if he wants what you have bad enough! …now for you that think oh it’s an inside job…..really?? I think if it where an inside job a whole lot more would be missing

    • Pehaps his friends wanted specific guns they couldn’t afford so they cooked up a sheme to get what they wanted & get publicity for his shop at same time???? Plus he gets insurance monies for repairs & replacements. Yes ADT should shoulder some blame BUT with all the possibility of theft / breakins HE SHOULD HAVE SECURED THE WEAPONS !!!!! PERIOD.

  • He refuses to sell firearms to Muslims but gives them to criminals for free due to negligent practices.

  • Bet this comment is moderated and you won’t even let the comments fly that call you out for the clickbait.

  • great system. adp failed to notify the sheriff of a firearm store being broken into and knew about it. sounds like liability should some one get hurt by one of those guns. you pay for these services and they fail you when you need them most. im all for having firearms to those that arent violent felons but there should be tight restrictions on gun stores. now law enforcement has to worry about these guns out on the streets. not to mention the civilians also are at a higher risk. criminals and guns never mix well.

    • Food for what? You have the reading level of a 4th grader. If you’re going to attempt to make a point, at least have the ability to form a coherent and complete sentence.

      • you can judge how I read by a quick comment I left on this site? oh wow. what next are you going to tell me how i smell over the internet? Are you sniffing paint mr fundamental. since you can tell my ability to read via a few sentences I typed. My statements were very clear and obvious. You might want to cut back on mid day cocktails or get an mri scan of your brain to check for possible damage.

  • Put this on FB: putting it here too.

    Listen buddy, this wasn’t nice to write the article like this. Liberal or conservative this nation needs to come together. The whole click bait thing and the fact that you said “some question surveillance video”, “what he says are images of two burglars” and “immediately after the break in, Hallinan posted a video to social media containing security footage of the break in”. Immediately and 4 HOURS!!!!! is not the same thing. Immediately would be 15 minutes. 20 minutes. Not over four hours. And it was 7 50 something in the morning. I know I get up earlier than that. Whoever suggested that Andy did this to promote his own store is a freaking internet troll. Report on real news, not the half minded opinions of Facebook comments. Reporting this story would been FINE, it’s news, I get it. But the bias twist you put on this was unethical and disappointing for a local news source.

  • I think it should be ADT that did not notify the police.

    Wednesday, 7 December 2016, 6:15 pm
    • Well I took is free class. and you know everybody criticizes everybody but Andy is Right criminals will be criminals. No matter what if a criminal warrants your stuff bad enough they will find a way to get it

  • Lmao, this jerk should be out of business. I took one of his “free” classes that ended up costing me 70.00 after all the fees. The class was a joke put on by idiots. Got my permit though!

    Wednesday, 7 December 2016, 4:49 pm
    • Backwoods Hillbilly… YOU NEED to contact me I have some questions about your experience with his class….

      Wednesday, 7 December 2016, 8:08 pm
    • His class is free .. you have to pay the state for the license. …putz

      Thursday, 8 December 2016, 8:36 am
      • No you pay to use their gun, bullets, notary, safety glasses, photos, etc. And pay the state. Being a veteran I didn’t have to take the class but went with a friend. Ahole putz

  • Anyone notice the “muslim” is wearing a hoodie ??? Told you they should be banned. And yes how convenient that the “muslims” knew the 1% of time he didn’t secure his guns ???? REALLY !!!

    Wednesday, 7 December 2016, 2:54 pm
  • He says normally the firearms would have been locked up??? Why not this time???

    Wednesday, 7 December 2016, 2:38 pm
  • Such a responsible gun owner/dealer. People like him are the reason its easy for criminals to get guns. Stupid people like this “man” who are against responsible ownership and put stupid preconceived notions above basic common sense are causing this great country to decline.
