In the military I served in, they beat into our heads THIS:

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS SECURE YOUR FRIGGIN' WEAPON!!!! There were serious penalties for allowing your weapon to fall into enemy hands......

Of course, we aren't talking about the military in the OP are we???? Chew on that one for awhile......

That is scary. I'm aware of another situation similar to the one you shared.

I surmise it is due to the fact they have absolutely NO SKIN IN THE GAME.

Not only did they get firearms, they also got those gov't grade hand held talkies with all the state of the art scrambling technology.

Pretty impossible to completely secure weapons in a car. If there is something in there they want they can take the whole car. Not a huge issue seeing as car theft happens every day.

Shop burglaries are becoming more common.

You are like Cliff From Cheers. Random pieces of info unrelated to the conversation.

John Ratzenberger played one of America's most beloved sitcom characters, Cliff the Mailman, on "Cheers" for 11 years. Since then, he has become one of the most-employed voices in Pixar movies, with a role in the latest, "Finding Dory."

But he's also a longtime Republican activist who will be appearing in four panels at Politicon starting Saturday and running through the weekend in Pasadena, California.

LifeZette talked to the actor, 69, about his opinions on the issues involved in two of his four panels at the weekend gathering -- his passion for the Second Amendment ("Tons of Guns") and his support for Donald Trump ("The Trump Panel").

"One of three cities."

Translation: the employee left the car unlocked as s/he was driving around and missing items were noticed when the car was returned.
