Homeland Security Loses A Lot Of Guns

179 Department of Homeland Security weapons were lost between 2006 and 2008 — some falling into the hands of criminals — after officers left them in restrooms, vehicles and other public places, according to an inspector general report.  This is mainly because officers did not properly secure them.

Unfortunately this type of loss is always going to happen.  DHS is a huge agency, which makes me wonder exactly what percentage 180 guns equates to?  Do other large agencies such as the FBI have a similar number of guns lost every year?

I am assuming there were no repercussions at all for officers that lost their firearms, because according to the article DHS doesn’t even have a policy in place regarding the control of firearms.

  1. WTF Batman! I wonder what happens to these guys that loose them, and how the hell do you just happen to leave your sidearm behind? What are these guys doing in the bathroom?

      My guess is they fill out some minor paperwork, then grab a new gun.

      Yea leaving a gun behind in a bathroom does seem odd.

  2. Maybe we should make them purchase thier own fire arms. Like a mechanic has to purchase thier own tools. They might take better care of them?

      Not a bad idea! Or else issue them one, and if they lose it then the next one is up to them to purchase. There definitely needs to be more accountability!

  3. Hmmm… What do they carry? Maybe I need to start following scatter-brained DHS officers around.
