The problem? An inordinate number of unregistered and unlicensed guns on the city’s streets. Just the number of guns stolen from vehicles and residences in Beaumont over the last two years amounts to hundreds upon hundreds of untracked firearms that were at least one time in the hands of a criminal. Judy Hickman from Beaumont Police Records Division reports that 476 firearms were reported stolen in 2016 and 379 were reported stolen in 2015.
