WTF? Child Happens Upon A Loaded Glock In Boehner's Capitol Bathroom

Child Finds A Loaded Gun In John Boehner's Capitol Bathroom
TPM * May 1, 2015 * Ahiza Garcia

A 7- or 8-year-old boy found a loaded gun in House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) Capitol suite bathroom a little more than a month ago, Roll Call reported on Friday.

The gun, which Roll Call only referred to as a Glock, was reportedly left there on March 24 by a dignitary protection officer.

The incident, however, was not isolated, according to Roll Call. The publication reported that Capitol police have a tendency to leave their guns in the building's restrooms.

On Jan. 29, according to Roll Call, one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) security guards left a Glock and its magazine jammed into a toilet seat cover holder in a restroom stall at the Capitol's visitor center, where it was found by an employee.

And on April 16, a janitor found a Glock that had been left out in the open as he was cleaning the headquarters of the Capitol Police, according to Roll Call.

While two of the officers are still under investigation, according to Roll Call, the officer from McConnell's detail was suspended without pay for six days after the incident. The investigation and suspension were part of a report for the Capitol Police Board that Roll Call obtained Thursday.

12. This speaks to an all-too-common "tendency" of some of our "law enforcement" & security personnel

 

To be dim-witted, forgetful and trigger-happy. I'm hoping those that fit this description are rooted out in the wake of Baltimore. I actually believe this could happen, as I don't doubt there are many 'good cope' in the ranks that would like nothing better than to out the bad apples.

14. Yeah pretty bizarre

I carried a 45 on a chest holster in the Army. I often had a WEAPON!!! freak out because I was so used to it. But going anywhere without your weapon iwas simply not a possibility.

26. I carried a .38 in a chest holster as part of my survival kit in Vietnam,

later upgraded to the .45, then to the Baretta 9mm.
It just felt like part of me after awhile and it was no big thing, but I NEVER once left it loose somewhere, the Army just has no sense of humor when it comes to their firearms.

29. Decades after the war, a buddy sent me a pic of us in-country

Of the three of us in the photo, I was the only one who still had my M-16 in hand. I never let it go, even when we were just outside our firebase.

13. My husband found a loaded gun in the restroom of a crowded park

with lots of children running around.

A careless security guard had left it there.

There should be very serious consequences for mistakes like that.

20. I'd attach a chain to them that they would have to wear...

and it couldn't come off. Wait they use to make MP wear lanyards attached to their weapons. I have for a limited time the $14.99 solution...

21. Someone is clearly sending a threatening message to these politicians

 

I will not cheer this on because it is wrong and if it can happen to them it can happen to everybody else.

... OR .. maybe I'm misunderstanding you. Not totally sure what you mean.

Do you seriously believe there's a 'conspiracy' afoot to harm Speaker Boehner and his ilk?

27. It is time for these allegedly elite security forces

to clean up their acts. The Secret Services has been acting like the Keystone Cops and now the capital police are acting like Barney Fife.
