More than two dozen semiautomatic rifles owned by the city of Miami Police Department are missing.
The prime suspects: The city’s own officers.
It’s not a matter of theft, however, but record-keeping — at least for now.
A strongly worded internal memo sent out to 1,400 sworn police officers Wednesday morning listed the serial numbers of 25 missing AR-15 rifles and warned officers that if the firearms are not returned by Monday, it could land them in hot water.
“Effective Monday, May 17, 2021, these rifles will be reported stolen…” the note read. “You are hereby ordered to return it to the Quartermaster unit immediately. Failure to do so may expose you to criminal liability for possession of stolen property.”
But we are the problem. We are the irresponsible ones that cannot be trusted with “weapons of mass killings” and they need to me removed from our possession because we do not have the training that cops do.
I know where my guns are, I suspect you do too. And I believe if we were to misplace any, the wives would go medieval on our asses.
