[Marianna Macleod] said she was stunned when she found a gun in the glove compartment of her Avis rental car on Sunday.
She wanted to get the firearm out of her possession, so she immediately called Avis.
“I opened my glove compartment to look for something and discovered a gun in my car. I wasn’t expecting that at all, so I freaked out and called Avis,” she said.
Macleod said after a three-hour hold, Avis gave her the runaround.
“Avis has a law enforcement department and they transferred me there, then they transferred me to the roadside assistance department. But the said hey we can’t do anything because we are just a towing company,” the Kirkwood resident said.
Macleod said Avis told her to call the Atlanta Police Department and she was surprised at what an officer said.
“’You are allowed to have a gun in Georgia, so it’s OK to have it in the glove compartment.’ I said, ‘But it’s not my gun.’ He said, ‘Did you call Avis?’ I said, ‘Yes, they told me to call you guys.’ Whose responsibility is it? It’s not my gun and it’s been over 24 hours now,” she said.
