Help wanted: Looking for a patsy
Handguns… Rifles… Even machine guns… Are no where to be found, according to the report from the Interior Department’s Inspector General. There’s no indication the weapons are in the hands of criminals, but there’s also no assurance they aren’t.
Investigators did find 1,400 guns that were supposed to have been melted down. Another 200 are sitting in a DC warehouse and don’t show up in any records.
The report blames in part, commanders who have a lackadaisical attitude towards firearms management — an indifference that’s a product of years of inattention.
