COLUMBUS -- An assault rifle, a semiautomatic rifle and a handgun were reported stolen from a west side home.
One of the weapons is similar to an AK-47.
"With all these crazy shootings going on right now, you're thinking your weapon could be involved in that," the gun's owner said. "That's scary."
The weapons were legally purchased and have a total value of about $3,000. The owner says one of the guns had more sentimental value, belonging to his father.
The guns were kept in a secure area in the home but discovered by burglars. Police have no leads in this crime but gun owners say the best way to keep weapons in the right hands is by purchasing a gun safe.
