Lorne Gunter: When police mishandle guns vs. when you do

“Jamie Graham, the highly regarded Victoria, B.C. police chief, has been reprimanded for leaving his loaded service revolver under the front seat of his car while it was in the police HQ garage. Detectives discovered Chief Graham’s gun while searching the building and all cars inside it for riot gear that had gone missing – a shotgun, tear gas, pepper balls and tactical vests. Ironically, at the time of the discovery, Mr. Graham was upstairs at a news conference telling reporters how “unacceptable” it was that the riot equipment was missing and warning the public about the danger it posed.”
