    Yeah, let's trust the federal government on the gun issue. Wow, just wow.

    From the link:

    The U.S. Park Police has lost track of thousands of handguns, rifles and machine guns in what a government watchdog agency concluded is the latest example of mismanagement on a police force trusted to protect millions of visitors to the city’s iconic monuments.

    ...

    The probe was launched in part because of an anonymous tip that Park Police officers were improperly taking weapons home. Investigators discovered two instances in which that had occurred, but they found many other troubling examples of mismanagement, according to the report.

    Investigators found 1,400 guns that were supposed to have been destroyed or melted down. An additional 198 handguns donated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are sitting in a building in Anacostia but don’t show up in official records.

    Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out whose been stealing the guns. These park rangers a thieves. More government workers you can trust and count on... for nothing.

    If the government workers faced felony charges I bet they be less "lackadaisical" about their approach to securing weapons and/or deposing of them properly.

    nice try vangator of trying to spin this into a problem caused by Obama.

    in the article is the following

    "Investigators took an unusually harsh tone in part because they said similar problems found in 2008 and 2009 were never fixed — a symptom of “the decade-long theme of inaction and indifference” of top Park Police managers. The Washington Post obtained an advance copy of the report."

    so this problem existed prior to Obama. and existed in the GWB administration.

    Most likely this has been going on for decades.

    Try reading entire articles and you won't make a fool of yourself like you did in your first post in this thread. Evidently you can't get past a paragraph or two if you see something that you can use in an attack on Obama. And then either not read or disregard the rest of the article. Seems like you are auditioning for Fox

    Unless he edited his post I don't see where he attacked Obama at all. He mentioned obamacare and how he didn't trust the government handling it. Ease up cowboy...

    Yep, the IRS never makes mistakes like sending millions of dollars, or personal information, to one address in Atlanta...

    This is about the govt running anything. And when Obozo is gone, we'll still have the govt running our healthcare unless common sense returns.

    The govt is a parasite.
