Loaded gun found at Macy?s inside Military Circle Mall | WTKR.com


Norfolk, Va. – Norfolk police are searching for the owner of a loaded handgun that was found inside of a dressing room at Macy’s inside of Norfolk’s Military Circle Mall.
Officers went to the scene after a customer reported the finding to loss prevention.
This occurred at around 12:40 p.m. on Monday.
 

"Quick get a reporter out to the Macy's - there was a loaded gun!"

Wow, what a waste of effort that report was.

Now the important question: "Does this dress make my Glock look fat?"
 
What a real pain is using the bathroom in stores. I won't leave my gun on my pants in the floor and not all have the TP in a box so you can put it on top. A lot of toilets have a big pipe so you can't put it there. And urinals just pull my pants down to the floor.
You guys have the same problems?
 
This past year a man left a loaded firearm at a LL Bean outlet store bathroom in Ellsworth, Maine. I believe he was charged with reckless conduct with a firearm and most likely lost his CWP. As much as its a honest mistake, it could prove to be a deadly one.

I use the hammock method.
 
I got another one for you. Just about a month ago a man left his loaded Ruger LC9 laying on top of the toilet paper dispenser at the Wa-lmart I work at. Apparently he placed the gun up there while taking care of business and then walked out the bathroom without it. He later came back in to customer service and asked if someone had turned in a loaded handgun to them. The gun has yet to be recovered....

It can be a pain, in fact my daughter found a gun in a dressing room one time, she calls me and asked what to do with it, I asked what it was it was a 9mm Hi Point, I said dont touch it call store security with your cell phone, security came and picked it up and I guess call the Police, ...............but I was thinking what a odd sort of gun for a women to carry.........
 
When I try on clothes, my first priority is determining where to set the pistol and WHEN I will put it back on. Since it is IWB, I just keep it on the trousers and make sure it is not on the floor for someone to be alarmed. If I have to use the restroom, I place it on my lap or in the coat pocket. One must always make a conscious effort. If a child or someone mentally unstable were to get a hold of it, the results would be catastrophic.

Norfolk, Va. – Norfolk police are searching for the owner of a loaded handgun that was found inside of a dressing room at Macy’s inside of Norfolk’s Military Circle Mall.
Officers went to the scene after a customer reported the finding to loss prevention.

Hopefully the weapon didn't kill anyone.
 
That is an inexcusable mistake, period. That is also the kind of crap that feeds the anti-gun frenzy.
 
UPDATE: Loaded gun found at Norfolk mall belonged to Sheriff’s Deputy

UPDATE: The loaded gun found inside of a Macy’s dressing room at Military Circle Mall on Monday belonged to a Norfolk Sheriff’s Deputy. Officials say disciplinary action has been taken against the deputy.
Norfolk, Va. – Norfolk police have located the owner of a loaded handgun that was found inside of a dressing room at Macy’s inside of Norfolk’s Military Circle Mall. The gun belongs to a Norfolk Sheriff’s Deputy.
A customer reported the gun to loss prevention on Monday afternoon.
The deputy realized as soon as he went back home that he had left the gun. He immediately notified the store and officials.
The Norfolk Sheriff’s office has taken disciplinary action against the deputy.
The Sheriff’s office is not releasing the name of the deputy because it is an internal NSO matter officials say.
No criminal charges will be filed.

I wonder what kind of charge the owner of that firearm would get if the person who found it, handled it- whether to take it to store security.. or what not- and accidentally shot themselves or someone else with it, and worse, killed themselves/someone else with it from the accidental discharge. involuntary manslaughter? (manslaughter is charged when negligence is involved? yes no?)
 
I usually wear khakis when I go shopping for clothes. Seeing how my 9mm STI and .40 Colt are humongo, I just stick them in a cargo pocket. As for the urinal? Zipper pisser. When I gotta duke, I wait for the handicap stall. Some around here have a shelf. The others are big, so I just set it down muzzle pointing towards the door in case a perv decides to look. (had it happen once, wasn't carrying then.)
 
I'm sure media was very hungry to jump on a potential citizen for the mistake to further the gun control agenda. What a disappointment to them that it turns out to be law enforcement - the ones on a pedestal as being part of a small group of people qualified to handle firearms.

Well if he’s not fired, they’re far too lenient. From my experience in the Marine Corps, for an officer or senior enlisted (E-6 & above or so) that would definitely be a career ender. For junior enlisted E-5 & below it would almost certainly be loss of a stripe, probably a fine, and at least 30 days of crap detail. For the law enforcement agency I’m associated with, dismissal. And that’s how it should be. That’s not a small mistake.
