I was there today and their display case is nearly empty. The thieves took all the semi auto handguns in the display case and left the revolvers.

I don't know where the cutsie emoticon is, so I'll have to wing it:

This thread is a dupe. At least two others have already been posted.

not a robbery, but a burglary.

Thank you! Not trying to be petty but I fricken HATE it when people put, "I was just robbed!!!!" then later put that they got home and thier **** was gone or like in this case "GUN STORE ROBBED!!!"
The reason is I quickly click in to see if anyone got hurt and everyone was ok from a violent force of stealing items of the person only to find out that there was no violence of forcing something from someones hand. No one was around to defend it.

OK, so Ivan and Bill can get the wheelguns and finish the job correctly ;)

right,

robbery=taking something through force
burglary=entering property with the intent to commit a felony

Every news article I read used the word robbery. I didn't think there was difference so I just looked up the two words.

Robbery is the crime of seizing property through violence or intimidation.
Burglary is the crime of breaking and entering into a structure for the purpose of committing a crime...and some definitions say at night.

So if I understand this correctly the burgler must first break and enter before he can committ a crime through violence or intimidation!

It's all clear to me now.

Almost...
In CA, you don't need to "break and enter" a structure for burglary (459 PC) to occur. All the suspect has to do is enter the premises w/ intent to commit a felony.

No. That would be 2 crimes, both burglary and robbery.

If a victim is present, it ain't burglary anymore. Robbery is an act of violence against a person. Burglary is a property crime. HUGE difference.

Think of it this way. If there were a robbery at a gun store, the likely result would be a gun fight. If there were a burglary at a gun store the likely result would be an alarm sounding.
