I know: this should be a post about an irresponsible gun owner violating the rules of proper gun storage, with a side note about cops blackmailing low-level criminals to risk their lives (unarmed) to catch the baddest of bad guys. And the fact that cops buy GLOCKs (and other guns) at a discount and then sell them for a tidy profit. I couldn’t help but wonder, though: would this barnacle-encrusted firearm fire? Whaddya reckon?


  1. And this is why Cops and ex-cops are better than other people & in deservense of special carv-outs in legislation that is unconstitutional to begin with…

  2. The story of interest isn’t about the gun. That’s trivia. The story is about why the deceased confidential informant was forced to deal with such nasty people, even after they threatened to kill her. It’s a scandal across the US, pervasive: Someone gets busted with some weed or a few pills. Next thing they know they either go to jail or agree to serve as a CI, crime bait. I’ve even seen it with minors. Crystal River was a little bit of heaven 40 years ago for those who had a house on Kings Bay. I passed through there seven years ago, and the landscape was saturated with no-money-down two BR houses. Crime was way up. Sad.

  3. Unknown somebody “A” told unknown somebody “B” where the gun was stored, and knowing it’s lineage could only be traced back to LEO, used it for the murder and then “planted” it at an easy to access location. Possibly an attempted frame job, possibly just trying to make LEO look bad while at the same time getting rid of a problem. The other 4 burglaries in the area were cover for the pistol theft.

  4. Did they say gun buyback? Buyback from the public or buyback of department from officer? If former, isn’t the (stated) point to keep guns off the street and therefore prevent their use in crime?
