California Needs Gun Control…That’d Be California LEOs.


Hundreds of police-issued weapons missing from Bay Area, California agencies
Nine-hundred and forty-four guns. From Glocks, Sig Sauers and Remingtons to sniper and assault rifles, some equipped with grenade launchers. They used to belong to law enforcement officers across California, but a new Bay Area News Group investigation found hundreds of police-issued weapons have been either stolen, lost or can’t be accounted for since 2010, often disappearing onto the streets without a trace. Despite the attention, a year later guns are still being stolen from law enforcement officers’ vehicles. A year after a bullet from a federal agent’s stolen gun killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier, this news organization surveyed more than 240 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and discovered an alarming disregard for the way many officers — from police chiefs to cadets to FBI agents — safeguard their weapons. Their guns have been stolen from behind car seats and glove boxes, swiped from gym bags, dresser drawers and under beds. They have been left on tailgates, car roofs and even atop a toilet paper dispenser in a car dealership’s bathroom. One officer forgot a high-powered assault rifle in the trunk of a taxi. The tally includes Colts, Rugers, Smith & Wessons, a Derringer, a .44-caliber Dirty Harry hand cannon and a small snub-nosed revolver called a “Detective Special.”In all, since 2010, at least 944 guns have disappeared from police in the Bay Area and state and federal agents across California — an average of one almost every other day — and fewer than 20 percent have been recovered.

And here is a little description of what went “missing:”

California LEO lost guns

I am not even surprised anymore. We now live in a country with different set of rules for different people and no accountability for a selected few.

But Gun Owners are the problem.

    Wait, is that actually assault rifles, or is it just AR-pattern rifles?

    And it doesn’t surprise me that the police lose so many guns. I’d put money on most guns sold illegally and used in crimes coming from police armories.

  3. If you try to disarm the public where do you go to steal guns? It doesn’t help that familiarity breeds contempt among the only ones in regards to safe storage and transport.

    Maybe they should institute the same rules the Chinese used when they recently armed previously unarmed police: From the time they leave their police station where their guns are locked up to the time they return, they are required to keep a hand on the grip of the holstered proprietary revolver. I mean, if it’s good enough for the Chinese… kent

    Of course, if I want a special firearm in Kaliforniastan, I would be treated like I had leprosy. No chance at all. Meanwhile we have criminals with “community guns” who NEVER serve the full term of all the laws they broke because of our justice and prison system. Watch out, eventually we will go vigilante!

    Let’s pile some more laws on the good citizens while our betters (politicians and LEOs) get special treatment like security details and fancy weapons. We have, but should not, firearms designated LEO only and that is plain unConstitutional.

    MAYBE the damn fools (yes the LEO community, who “lose” their firearms) be put on some sorta no buy/no fly list? No?
