You may recall last year’s tragic shooting death of 32-year-old Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal alien at Pier 39 in San Francisco. While that incident sparked a nationwide debate on immigration at the time, what most people forget is that the pistol used in that incident was actually stolen by a BLM agent two months prior.
Since that time the San Jose Mercury Newspaper has been investigating 240 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies across California. They’ve discovered that since 2010, these police departments have lost track of 944 pistols, revolvers, shotguns, rifles of all types, sub machine guns, and even grenade launchers.
More importantly, these weapons are often lost in the most negligent ways. According to Mercury News:
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.
Out of the 944 firearms that have gone missing, 192 were stolen, 35 were misplaced, and 717 are simply “unaccounted for,” whatever that means. And yet the left says that only cops can be trusted with firearms.
