On Christmas morning, instead of remembering the One who came to save sinners from sin, three thugs decided to engage in the sin and crime of stealing from a veteran-owned gun store.
A criminal threesome broke into veteran-owned Double Tap Tactical early Christmas morning and proceeded to smash glass tops to steal 30 guns in under a minute.
They were captured on surveillance video and their pictures were posted to Double Tap Tactical's website in hopes that there will be someone who can identify these criminals.

Posted by WZTV FOX 17 News, Nashville on Thursday, December 28, 2017
The guns were valued at over $20,000.
Fox 17 reports:
The thieves got away with 25 semi-automatic pistols, three revolvers and three rifles, all with brand names such as Glock, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Walther, Taurus, Sig-Sauer, and several others.
“At this point now we’re trying to figure out who did this and where our guns are at,” said Ron Berger, store owner.
Berger is a military veteran who served in Iraq with the U.S. Army. He transitioned to civilian life, has a wife and three kids, and has owned Double Tap Tactical for five years.
Berger had recently relocated his store and has not yet been insured.
The new store is located in Clarksville, Tennessee.
“So moving forward from this point I don’t know what direction we’re gonna go unless we get our firearms back,” Berger said. "It’s not looking promising."
“We gotta get these guns off the street, and we gotta get them back,” Berger said.
He did say that police had a lead in the case.
“We’ve been informed they pulled a tag of ours that was attached to one of our firearms that was tagged to a juvenile in Hendersonville, which is pretty scary,” Berger said.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also investigating, according to a report.
