TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- More than three dozen submachine guns were among 200 firearms stolen during a home burglary of a former Tulsa gun dealer.

It is the second time in two weeks that the home has been broken into. The submachine guns were taken Monday night, said Sgt. Robert Holman.

In total, more than 200 guns were stolen from the homeowner, who was a former licensed gun dealer and current collector.

"They're not going to be able to pawn something like this without having the proof of ownership and the registration because the pawn shop would know what it is that they're handling," Holman said.

The ATF has given the homeowner two days for a written inventory of his guns, which includes hundreds more firearms.
