Rep. Karen Bass says her firearms were wiped out in home burglary


Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif) said two firearms were stolen from her Los Angeles home on Friday in a burglary.

Bass, a Los Angeles mayoral candidate and a California representative since 2011, wrote in a statement that she discovered the break-in Friday and called the Los Angeles Police Department for help.

She said two “securely stored” firearms were stolen, although cash, electronics and other valuables were not taken in the break-in.

“It’s unnerving and unfortunately it’s something far too many Angelenos have dealt with,” Bass said.

Bass spokesperson Sarah Leonard Sheahan told The Los Angeles Times that Bass owned the firearms, which she claimed were registered in the name of the mayoral candidate, but she never tried to get a license to carry.
