A report of weapons stolen September 9 from Los Angeles mayoral candidate Rep. Karen Bass’ home raised questions for Fox hosts.
“The confusing story of the Democrat whose guns were stolen from her house is still as muddy as ever,” Fox host Jesse Watters said. “Cops arresting two men for burglarizing Democrat congresswoman Karen Bass’ house. She’s also running for L.A. mayor.”
“The perps stole two registered handguns that were in a lockbox stashed in a closet,” Watters added. “No cash, jewelry, or electronics were grabbed at all.”
Fox host Jeanine Pirro noted two suspects were arrested in connection with the reported robbery. According to a Fox News report, 42-year-old Patricio Munoz and 24-year-old Juan Espinoza, were arrested Tuesday after detectives witnessed them entering a vehicle spotted at Bass’ home during the alleged burglary.
The super-quick arrest was noted by Pirro, who stated 91 percent of residential burglaries are unsolved, which makes an arrest after three days almost a record. She raised questions surrounding Bass’ report of stolen guns and the quick arrests.
“I have more doubts than before,” Pirro said. “Here’s the thing, the burglary – it’s a residential burglary which in California, the most [time] that you can serve is six years, according to their penal statute.” Pirro notes the alleged burglary occurred September 9 and police made arrests September 13. She remarked that is a pretty good closure rate.
“Why is her place in disarray when there’s valuables, there’s cash, there’s all kinds of, what did she say, electronics available?” Pirro continued. “And they go to a lockbox. So I look up Brinks – the lockbox. It doesn’t have a mirror on it, it doesn’t say gun, it’s just a box, and she says it’s stashed in the closet.”
“How do they know what’s in the box in the closet that’s stashed, and they forego everything else?” an incredulous Pirro questioned. “There’s something screwy about this.”
The California congresswoman, after representing the state’s 37th Congressional District since 2011, has entered the race for mayor of Los Angeles. Her opponent, Rick Caruso, is a billionaire with extensive real estate holdings in the Golden State. The two winners of their party’s primary are facing off in November’s midterm election to lead the City of Angels.
Los Angeles Magazine had a slew of questions, also, about the alleged theft of guns from Bass, who learned to shoot in Cuba during the 1970s.
“Why does Bass, who during a March debate said she feels safe in Los Angeles, have a pair of firearms?” reporter John Regardie questioned. “How long has she owned them? How often does she go shooting?” He whimsically wondered if she named her guns while wondering what kind of firearms they were.
“And if “only two” firearms were taken—how many are there in the residence total?” he asked.
