  1. This is troubling on a couple of different fronts. The information I referenced previously, was contained in a couple of posts on Facebook, from a person who is known to be knowledgeable here in the CSRA, or so I would’ve thought. Second, if you have concerns about “interest” in a firearm in your possession by a child, an automobile glovebox would not be my storage location of choice. I would probably feel the need to procure a single pistol vault from Cabela’s. This allows security of the weapon, but still offering accessibility. Car keys are just too easy to access.

  2. Leaving a firearm in an unattended vehicle is an open invitation to have it stolen and used to commit a crime, but it’s stunning how many people do it. It’s not only the monetary loss, but the possibility that the weapon you owned may be used to injure or kill someone. You share the blame for being an irresponsible gun owner.

    “…a loaded Black Glock 48 handgun…” Racist Freudian slip? Auto-correct set on woke AP Style Guide? Of what import is the color of the pistol? Is black more sinister?

  3. They got the gun description from the police report. In almost all criminal reports they have to be extremely specific as to the descriptions of what happened or was found. If it isn’t, a defense attorney would pick the report apart in a court case. Reports have to be written as though you are talking to a blind 10-year-old… Silly but necessary. As for the father, he should be given a misdemeanor charge of reckless conduct. No way the child should have gotten to a gun stored in a vehicle glovebox. One, the vehicle should be locked. Two, if you are going to store a loaded weapon in a glove box it should be locked in the glove box. Three, if you have a special needs child you should be checking their bags before the head off to the bus or to school. Especially the first week of classes! But it is Greenbrier ($$$) so parents get a free pass…
