    Stamford, Connecticut: A Connecticut gun owner forgot to lock his gun up one night while it was parked, and someone stole his handgun from the glove compartment. When he went to report it, he was arrested for “reckless endangerment” and later on the charge of failure to have “safe storage” of his weapon was tacked on. Then the rest of his guns were confiscated.

    The Stamford Advocate reported on October 2,

    Sgt. Jennifer Pinto said police were called to Reynolds Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a car burglary that involved a stolen gun. The owner of the car, Christopher Jerome, 26, parked his car at about 8:20 p.m. Monday and, thinking that he was going to get back into the car a short time later, did not lock the doors.

    When he got up the next morning, Jerome saw that his driver’s side door was open and his gun had been taken out of the unlocked glove box, Pinto said. Jerome presented his pistol permit to officers and told them that he had more firearms in his home.

    That’s when police went to his home and confiscated the rest
