Cornwall Ontario – A CFN viewer emailed in upset over an alleged cover up over a missing gun from the armoury.
We get lots of information from the public. Each case has to be evaluated and of course verified because even a gonzo newspaper has to tell the truth.
The Armoury is home to the
SD&G Provincial Liberal Riding Association SD&G Highlanders.
The police confirmed that a gun was reported stolen, but that it’s still under investigation and that they would release no further information.
According to the source the gun was stolen months ago and they are alleging a cover up.
The gun, according to the source, is a C1 sub machine gun, modeled on the British Sten gun, that was on display.
While it was missing its firing pin, according to the source it could be replaced or fabricated in this internet age.
A call to the unit, where Captain James Borer (former Liberal Riding Association President) is the media rep, was not responded to however we did get a call from the military in Toronto who simply wanted to know when our story deadline was. Chain of command in the military is a reality of their lives of course.
The bigger questions are why wasn’t this reported via the police blotter? Why wasn’t the public informed that a sub machine gun has been floating around?
And how could a gun on display in an armoury go missing? Isn’t the point of an armoury to safeguard weapons in case of time of need?
If it wasn’t for this source would the public ever know, and of course how many other weapons have gone missing that have also not been reported?
All legitimate questions. While at the end of the day someone may simply have wanted a souvenir to hang on their wall surely a 9mm submachine gun on the loose is something the community should be concerned over?
What do you think dear CFN viewers? Does the Armoury need to be investigated? Should it be allowed to hold any weapons in a city of this size if they can’t be secured? You can post your comments below.
