For a limited enough supply there is no resale value for stolen goods.
The theft of a fine piece of art would come to the attention of art dealers worldwide almost immediately, making reselling this limited good quite difficult. At least at a premium…
What other goods have the same property?

Sometimes Fascism Feels Good…
There’s an internet meme going around that in Finland, you cannot buy a dog until all the shelters are empty.
It’s not true, but people wish it was, because we’ve all seen the “In the Arms of the Angel” Sarah McLachlan commercial, and if you didn’t feel bad for not picking up the next stray you see on a street corner, you should just step off that corner into traffic, you monster.

… and all you want is more pay to flip burgers.
Never before has so much education been freely available to anyone with a library card, and everyone’s still trying to get $15 for working at burger king…

Do you like Hockey?
No wait, Baseball. Do you like Baseball?
I find it intensely boring (but that’s not important right now), because Baseball has an interesting property I’d like to explain.
You can play Baseball just like you can play a flute, but someone can steal a flute and they cannot steal Baseball.
Obviously, if you own a physical baseball, someone can steal that, but now you’re just playing catch with homonyms.

In less than 48 hours California inventors came up with a way around the new AR-15 restrictions, proving yet again that the government will always be behind the innovation of the free marketplace.
Many will miss the point entirely, and argue specifics and technicalities, but if you want to know why Governor Brown didn’t just ban what California has already legally designated as “Assault Rifles” completely, then you’re asking the right question!
But you won’t like the answer…
