This story doesnt add up.
Everyone is so observant and all, so I'll lay it out there.
#1 the wife just got put on probation recently for a disorderley conduct charge on St Patrick's day.
#2 She is 20 yrs old. under 21 no hand guns in florida.
#3 she is pissed it was there and feels like if I push the issue she goes to jail. There is no reasoning with her on this either.
Like I said before it is my fault for leaving it in the car, I am soley responsible for that weapon. I knew she could take off in the car whenever.
#4 I am not 100% certain it was Vero Beach who took it, thats what she said. I only called them and Ft Pierce. The only other one is Indian River Sherriff's office. I just felt deep down in this situation leaving it alone was the best thing to do.
Bottom line I told most of the story to lay out the scenario. The main reason I did is because I thought my right to buy more guns would be stripped away over this ordeal. So I signed up here to get some opinions. If I did push the issue, maybe myself AND the officer would get in trouble, and my wife.
One last thought I had recently: If this cop can turn his head to his duties (He should have arrested my wife), then why couldnt he have left my gun in my car and just gone away. That comes down to just respecting a fellow man's property. You know?
