    Sorry, but, "...only one gun in the vehicle, ma'am?"

    "Yes, just one."

    "We're investigating 5 murders, five guns...one more...meh."

    Exactly the reason I do not keep a gun in my vehicle. Only time I will is if I go somewhere I can't carry and even then it's locked up.

    Its a stolen car, at the heart of it all. They're looking for it, BOLO issued.

    Is there something they need to stop by her house for? Some information she can't give them over the phone?

    Sorry to be so callous. They are short staffed, and more than have their hands full. They don't have time to hold hands, unfortunately.

    She shouldn't have left it in the car if she was so worried about bad guys getting it. What does she think, they don't break into cars and steal stuff in Detroit? They don't steal cars?

    "What if a child gets this in his hand? I’m responsible, and I just can’t have that on my conscience,”

    She should have been more concerned about the situation before her vehicle was stolen. She doesn't care about someone getting hurt, she cares about being charged with a crime. Don't know if Detroit has laws on the book that make it illegal to keep a handgun in an unattended vehicle. Regardless she shouldn't have left it there.

    It should be pointed out that she deserves a pass IF she were forced to disarm due to her going into a Pistol Free Zone. Say if she parked in the apartment lot to go to church, or a bar.

    Car safe wouldn't have made a difference with the whole car stolen, none are sufficient to deny entry given all the time in the world, they can only deter a smash and grab type burglary.

    I made the mistake of assuming she lives at that apartment building, or was visiting someone there, and there was no good reason to leave the pistol in the car.

    TBO Why so serious? CLM

    The little voice of experience in me can't help but whisper she was just trying to move her case priority up.
    She wanted the Police to drop everything and get "her" property back, now.

    Sent from the capacitor of my Taser.
