The US Park Police lost track of hundreds of handguns, rifles, machine guns and shotguns, some of which were being stored in officers’ homes, a new Inspector General’s report found. Investigators also discovered that 1,400 guns intended for destruction were instead stored in Park Police facilities, and at least 198 handguns donated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had not been properly registered. The Park Police is responsible for protecting Washington, D.C.’s national monuments and parks, and the latest example of mismanagement has caused concern that the weapons may have fallen into the wrong hands.
State police are also investigating a voicemail left for Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, a Phoenix Republican who supports the Medicaid expansion. She appeared visibly shaken Thursday as she described the message on the House floor and asked lawmakers to tell their constituents to be civil.
"The voice was a male who left a long rambling message with derogatory remarks aimed at Governor Brewer for Representative McGee," Bart Graves, a spokesman with the Department of Public Safety, said in an email Friday. "She felt there was a threatening undertone."
Lawmakers said they have received dozens of messages from supporters and opponents of the proposed expansion containing varying layers of vitriol.
"Sadly, the tone has been quite intense. People are emotional," said Republican Rep. Ethan Orr, of Tucson, who supports the Medicaid plan and received the email but said it did not make him feel threatened. "I wish people would have a more civil and respectful tone, but I understand why this is so important to them
