Another agency loses track of its guns
A surprise inspection of a Nuclear Regulatory Commission office shows it can't account for 15 of 17 issued guns.
A linked report tracks how the agency achieved armed law enforcement status despite the fact that no employee has made an arrest in the last quarter-century.
Hat tip to Dan Gifford...
The NRC is strapped? Didn't know that. I guess I'll have to be more careful next time I have to go into the radioactive area at work :)

And these folks work with radioactive material on a day to day basis and couldn't keep track of their firearms. May the Lord have mercy on us all.

Your's is the first place I heard of this story, OTOH, this morning CNN was making a big deal of the fact that the Army can't account for a couple of hundred AK47's issued to Afghan police.
AK47's in that region are a dime a dozen; the Peshawar area is famous for cranking them out using hand tools.
