Guns Lost By a Firearms Dealers

or rather (oops, my mistake), by the dealer’s government agency watchdog…

Impressive FOIA results.

“It is clear that agency rules were not followed in many of the incidents, which show at least 49 guns were lost or stolen nationwide between 2009 and 2013.”

“The newly released ATF reports show that between 2009 and 2013, agents lost their guns or had them stolen in at least 45 incidents — with a couple of the cases involving the loss of three firearms.

It is unclear if the records include “missing” guns, a separate category used by the agency.

Most of the lost weapons were handguns, but there also were at least two assault rifles stolen. Typically the reports do not indicate what happened to the unrecovered guns. However, in a November 2008 incident, the gun may have wound up in Mexico, according to the report.”

“The report cited examples similar to those in the documents obtained by the Journal Sentinel, with agents leaving weapons in public bathrooms, atop their vehicles, on an airplane and one in a shopping cart.”

I sit here wondering how this compares with licensed firearms dealer records, and, of course, the whole Fast & Furious debacle.  And wonder if any of the BATFE missing arms are responsible for crimes or even murders?

Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. Why is it that I’m never around when one of these idiots “lose” their gun? I wouldn’t mind having a nice government issued Glock.

  2. But, it doesn’t say how many incidents involved lost or stolen tobacco, alcohol, and explosives…
