The sad thing is, most SPD cops are pro-gun far as I can tell.
I know a lot of people with guns,my self included-and NEVER has anything like this happend
We have had guns left at our range. We had one member leave a boxed handgun on the roof and drive off. The Sig box was found on the side of the roadway by someone driving be later in the day. An M1A was left in the rack after the end of a match a few years back. It happens.
Understand what you are saying-but this is by Police Officers.This is why I only trust my self when it comes to fire arms.
When I was at Camp Lejeune somebody lost their rifle while in the field. After 19 straight hours of the entire unit searching for it, it turned up buried in the back of a Humvee. Needless to say that person was not only charged, but he also "tripped" down the stairs.
I was referring to the criminal element in that city more than anything else. Criminals will snatch something like that right up, given the chance
Well, considering there is hardly any steel at all in AR (a few pins, the springs, hammer and sear) I'm going to say ix-nay on the ings-spray.
Bubble gum? Maybe.
Since there is a mag installed, I'm guessing it was loaded, too.
What a pair of boobs. Hope they are on bicycle patrol for a good while....like, the next ten years or so.
You might be onto it. Maybe they had seldom touched a gun before their first LEO job.
The opposite has happened in Memphis. Some thugs followed an FBI or other agency's truck or SUV to a restaurant by I-40.
Maybe they followed them from another city, or could easily recognize the type of car and license plates which often transport such guns?
While the agents were eating, the car was apparently in view but all of the high-powered guns were stolen.
Seems to be a bit of an unfair generalization. I know plenty of people who were kept safe due to police intervention. The little vomiting icon you put after your comment doesnt seem very high road in this context.
This topic can go nowhere but south if you ask me....ONE person made ONE mistake and it's a reflection on ALL of us???? Typical.
In his defense, perhaps the fellow was merely referencing case law that affirms that police have ZERO obligation to protect people. I'm sure the lawyers that visit here know what I'm talking about.
As I understand it, most departments prefer semi auto patrol rifles even though they can get cheap surplus FA weapons from the military. You don't gain that much with full auto (marksmanship in a gunfight is bad enough with semi), it looks bad in court to use a "machine gun," and the record keeping requirements are less onerous with a Title I firearm.
Also, those BATF rifles smuggled over the border had GPS microchips hidden in the buttstocks. At no time were they off the grid. Federal agencies were tracking them all the time.
Doctors have amputated the wrong limb before. Doesnt mean all doctors are incompetent.
The comments are similar to .us just before final decision to fold
Point being, someone as in "1" left rifle on trunk
Enforcers as a rule are not liked
Then you have others who want to explain it from their own perspective
Someone '1', messed up, and will be punished
Most who have commented should read the article, close LOL...
Separate names with a comma.
