I'm sure there's enough grist here for anyone's mill in the gun debate:

**** happens. Unfortunately, as always, the media chooses to focus on the gun instead of the creep who stole it.

Nice gun too.

It's kinda ironic, though, ain't it?

Agreed. But what was he supposed to do with it? I mean, you can have a gun locker in your trunk and have your car stolen.

True...There's more to this story, I suspect. Who knows what we'll learn later on.

While he wouldn't expect someone to burgle his car, as the Chief of Police one would think he would be more responsible, especially with a gun.

Oh, it's definitely embarassing for him, but it could happen to anyone. Remember, a gun is just an inanimate object, but a very desirable one for a thief.

More negligent I think. Like I said as Chief of Police he of all people should know better.

Why? That's a typically silly comment. Remember, the gun was STOLEN.

One could suppose it was his own fault...

I'm missing a steak knife. Should I be worried someone might use it to commit murder?

Of course, steak knives are meant to cut meat, while guns ___________________ (fill in the blank).

True, but not exactly following the logic of the sentence. Pretend it's the SAT...

I think the point is that as the Chief of Police he should be more cognizant of where he leaves his gun.

It should be noted that this was his personal, off duty weapon. It's pretty difficult to carry two full size sidearms, unless you want to look like Jesse James. Clearly a mistake on his part, but still, there was a crime (theft).

Lost a cell phone lately, anyone? Tools of the trade.

I have no idea what the laws in Washington state are regarding firearms. In Massachusetts it is illegal to leave your weapon in your car, even locked in a trunk. A private citizen, at least, would lose his license to carry a concealed weapon if it was found he had left it in his car and walked off, even if the car was securely locked and equipped with a gazillion burgler alarms. A high police official like that would face disciplinary action for his negligence.

Massachusetts has lots of really stupid laws like that. Just look at who runs the place.

I don't know what the law in the USA says about a case where a police officer leaves his gun in his car to have it stolen, but if it were used to kill someone then I think he would be in deep doo doo.

First of all he would be pilloried by the media ( person dead because of policemans incompetence)

I'm going with my original statement, if his gun is used to murder someone I think he can kiss his career goodbye.

I hope for everyones sake it doesn't happen that way.
