A secretary at one of the criminal defense law firms in a large city in shall issue state had been carrying a glock pistol in her purse. Her reason for this, of course, was self-protection. After all, the people who came into the office were those facing criminal charges. Some of these people were violent criminals.
It made sense in her mind to carry a gun for protection. 10 years of carrying the gun, she never used it.
But after 10 years, her purse was stolen from the office--along with the gun--a couple of weeks back.
The really amazing part was that the video cameras in the building got fried in a power outage. That meant the video footage was missing that would help to identify the culprit. That means the gun in now out on the street and in the hands of a criminal.
This story, which I figure is quite illustrative of one of the problems with carrying, was sent by a friend who shall remain nameless. I have every reason to believe it's a true story. The only question is how representative is it?
