“A submachine gun is among the gear missing after an Orlando Police officer’s unmarked patrol car was stolen Saturday. The officer, who is a part of the agency’s SWAT unit, woke up Saturday morning and noticed his patrol car was missing from outside his apartment complex in Baldwin Park, police spokeswoman Wanda Miglio said.” And with it, his department-issued UMP 45. That’ll ruin your whole morning.
Plenty o’ gun owners keep a gat in their vehicle during the day as they go about their appointed rounds. Some leave one (or more) in their whip at all times. The biggest drawback to that: the possibility of theft. Like the Orlando SWAT officer, you might think your car is safe in the driveway in front of your house. But as Sportin’ Life would advise, it ain’t necessarily so. Do you leave a gun in your car?
