On another note, it's a bit hard to swallow that the chief didn't notice the gun he (should) carry every day was missing for four days.

....


One possibility is that after the town meeting he changed from his uniform to civvies and he doesn't usually carry off-duty, so he didn't notice the gun (and his entire batman belt?) was gone until he went to put his uniform back on. The town meeting was in the evening on 9 Nov, a holiday weekend, and the PD issued a bulletin about the gun on Monday. So I'm guessing he took Friday off, had a long weekend, then when he went to put his uniform back on Monday morning, he went, "Now where's that heavy thing that hangs off the right side...lessee, when's last time I saw it...OH :shock: !!"

I hope whoever found it puts it someplace safe, like a TEOTWAWKI cache.

and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

They must have updated the article. There is no mention of a Glock service revolver now.

Only the police should carry guns.

It's still there in the first sentence, at least in the version I just pulled up.

"An Arizona police chief who accidentally left his service revolver in a restroom stall inside a library is asking for the public's help in retrieving the weapon."
