US Park Police Loses Hundreds of Guns

So the US Park Police lost about 1,400 firearms, including machine guns, according to a report in the Washington Times.

Poor management and shoddy oversight have led the U.S. Park Police to lose track of hundreds of rifles, handguns and machine guns, a watchdog agency said.

“We found that staff at all levels — from firearms program managers to their employees — had no clear idea of how many weapons they maintained due to incomplete and poorly managed inventory controls,” investigators with the U.S. Interior Department’s inspector general’s office said, in United Press International. “As a result, we discovered hundreds of handguns, rifles and shotguns not accounted for on official USPP inventory records.”

Conditions were ripe for theft, the watchdog report found. And records are so skewed that the Park Police may never be able to discern whether weapons were actually stolen, UPI reported.


I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about. I mean, it’s not like the Obama administration has a history of losing track of weapons that end up with the Mexican drug cartels or anything…
