    He reportedly used a restroom in the mall where his offices are located, then 'trolled the schools?

    Not ONCE, somewhere in the interim of the route did he:
    - not notice the weight change,
    - the "no bump" at his elbow,
    - it's placement when entering or exiting his vehicle (somebody that lazy didn't walk)
    - or more importantly it's absence if he checked his equipment in the name or readiness?

    My words for his lack of awareness is not printable.

    "they don't know if the gun is loaded'??? say what? every gun is loaded unless proven otherwise and then it should still be treated as if it were loaded... What a negligent thing to say.

    (also, why would the guard be armed if it was not loaded)

    So the guard leaves the gun in a bathroom. Happens sometimes.

    The security guard doesn't know if his gun was loaded? I'm guessing he doesn't want to admit it was loaded. I'd have a lot of questions if he was carrying around an unloaded gun.

    What's the one most sensitve piece of equipment a guard (or officer) carries, and should in my opinion, be most aware of in terms of posession or security thereof?

    I am a professional armed security officer. This is appalling. No excuse is going to save this clown's job. Shades of Barny Fife. Greydog.

    I couldn't agree more, greydog111.

    One more comment, then I'll shut up ... Oblivion.

    Well, the source seems to be media in the first place. That alone is suspect.

    I wonder if he is lying about not knowing if the gun is loaded because : A) he doesn't know if he loaded it, B) he thought he would get in less trouble if it was unloaded, or C) he carried it empty because it weighed too much.

    Anyone care to wager or offer different options? :bluelaugh:

    Option 1: Check the pawn shops in and around Salem, or check the guard's pocket for a pawn ticket for the "lost" gun.:laugh:

    Option 2: Dig under the giant pile of McDonald's wrappers and Taco Bell boxes in the back seat of his patrol vehicle, and tada there it is. :laugh: :bluelaugh:

    but hey, we have to close the "gun show loophole" since everyone knows that is how bad guys get guns...

    lanyards have their place in life.

    The news article says "It's not known if the gun was loaded." probably because they didn't actually ask the question. They then attempt to create speculation with editorial sensationalism .
