The police department of a California city is facing accusations of severe incompetence after the agency’s police chief left her Glock handgun in a restaurant bathroom. City police later searched the home of an innocent man with the hopes of recovering the lost weapon, and went on to detain the man’s children on false child endangerment charges.
San Luis Obispo Police Chief Deanna Cantrell left her Glock 42 handgun in the bathroom of an El Pollo Loco earlier this month. After she determined she had forgot the weapon and that it was missing from its last known location, she asked restaurant staff to check surveillance camera footage for anyone who might have taken it.
Cantrell apparently determined that an area man named Skeeter Mangan took the weapon at the time, but the San Luis Obispo police later received an anonymous tip alleging that an thus-unnamed man from Moro Bay may have come into possession of the handgun. The police chief took a full two hours to report the weapon missing in accordance with the law, having realized the gun was unaccounted for at noon and finally following the legal procedures for missing firearms after 2:30pm.
Police executed a supposedly lawful search of the home, failing to find the Glock. When the weapon couldn’t be located in the man’s possession, officers took “protective custody” of the Morro Bay man’s children, on the extremely flimsy and outrageous basis of the man’s home being “filthy.” It’s unclear if San Luis Obispo officers will face repercussion for their seemingly retaliatory seizure of an American’s children.
Later, Mangan’s brother-in-law revealed that his relative was in fact in possession of the weapon, after which police officers finally recovered the sidearm.
Police Chief Cantrell later published a video apologizing for her actions and lack of transparency throughout the incident.
In perhaps the most bizarre twist of the story yet, San Luis Obispo City Manager Derek Johnson praised Cantrell for her “integrity throughout the incident,” even though he ordered her to be fined $1,600 for violating city police pertaining to weapons.
Meanwhile, the state of California continues to enforce heavily restrictive laws against law-abiding citizens, as local police officers lose their weapons in restrooms.
Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Luther is running for the Texas Senate.
Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.
Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.
Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:
It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.
“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”
Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.
Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.
“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”
Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.
Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.
With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed. America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
