During their investigation, officers received a call from a retired corrections officer, claiming he had found the gun and safely secured it in the truck of his vehicle.

That's open and shut theft, depending on who found it.

accidentally?  Negligently.

At least half of the people running around with guns are exactly the types of people who should never be able to own a gun, and I am not including criminals in that assessment. This is just the average Joe I am talking about.

Not when someone abandons it in a public place.

Believing you left a gun in a bathroom at Costco is not the same thing as leaving a gun.

I believe my wife, Morgan Fairchild, disappeared in a different Connecticut Costco the same day.  The police were too busy to help since they were assisting at the other Costco, looking for a loose gun.

Yeah that really sounds like theft to me too, why the fark wouldn't you hand it over to the manager?  The farking last thing I want to handle or take with me is a potentially hot gun.

Is true. Like a partially haunted salad, possession is 9/10s of the slaw.

Only if the finder had an intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property.

Which he obviously didn't since he called the cops and said, "Uh, I found a gun in the john at Costco and I have it safely secured, please advise."

Little hot dogs and guns in the bathroom are not mutually exclusive.

Jesus Christ, you need a gun to go Costco down there?

Ikea, I can understand; but Costco?

Might want to see a doctor about that.

We should just greenlight violence against people that make threats against others in public.  Only truly responsible gun owners would be left standing after a year.

How about Walmart? I can't go into that place without feeling all 'merikun 2nd amendment'.

Lowderback was charged with second degree reckless endangerment and issued a $2,500 non-surety bond.

Non-sure if serious...

A weapon being sequestered until the police can come get it is not theft, period.

that he called the police to report it kind of blows your opinion out of the water.

If he had waited 2-3 weeks to report it, I'd be agreeing with you.

Now here's the fun part:     He is due in Manchester Superior Court in early February.

I wonder if it'll be in front of the same judge who repeatedly leaves his firearm in the shopping cart at the local grocery stores?  That ought to make for an eventful proceeding.

Yeah, the guy stole it (after it was apparently abandoned) and then called the cops to let them know he had it.

OK.

Imagine trying to go up to a manager at Costco like, "Hey, look at this gun I found!"  Hilarity would ensue.

It's been a while since I've been in a costco, but they generally aren't on the high seas.

Oh good. Now the moms with their three kids can stand there and clog the aisles again while they use the free samples to feed their kids lunch.

A man is due in court next month after police say he accidentally left a gun inside the bathroom of a local store.

So he doesn't work for the TSA then?

I'm never able to get to Costco in time for the free gun samples, I try and get there when they open the doors, but Mrs  Baka farts around putting on makeup and finder her shoes that they are always out by the time we get there

And Sams has shiatty sample guns, like made by Moonies shiatty

Then you've never been to one after a Florida hurricane.

Count yourself lucky.
