Orlando's police chief lost her gun

How Embarrassing
Orlando police Chief Val Demings lost her gun in a burglary of her city vehicle.
The theft happened weeks ago, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, but did not become public until late Tuesday.
The 9mm Sig Sauer pistol was stolen the night of Feb. 27 and discovered the next morning. The weapon was left in a duffel bag inside her agency sport utility vehicle, which she parked outside the home she and her husband, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, share in an unincorporated area of the county.
"I never leave my gun in the car, but I did that night because we were expecting guests for the weekend and they had young children," Demings said. "We are allowed to store our [weapons] in the trunk or passenger compartment as long as they are out of plain view. It was clearly out of plain view."

Imagine that two top law officials can't protect themselves from crime.
