Rep. Ellmers has had quite a month.
U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers’ husband reported an AR-15 rifle stolen from the family’s home in Dunn last week, according to a police report.
The weapon had been left leaning against a gun locker in an unlocked garage on Kingsway Drive, the report said.
The rifle, a gun case and a GPS, with a cumulative value of $1,100, were reported stolen, according to Chief J.D. Pope. Police think the theft happened on the night of Oct. 15.
“According to the report, they had been out target shooting and brought the gun back and leaned it against the gun safe,” Pope said. “ … The garage door was left unsecured, according to the report.”
I suppose we should be giving them credit for having
a gun safe. We may need a bit more training here on how a gun safe is supposed to work, but hey—at least the possibly-still-loaded AR-15 was left in the general area of the safe, right? Ellmers, for her part, is miffed:
“Gun safety is of the utmost importance in their household, which is exactly why she’s so upset and doesn't understand how this happened,” Doheny said
She's already had a difficult time of late, what with rude people suggesting that in light of her stalwart support of a government shutdown she might want to forego her own paychecks
. Then some mean person on CNN had to treat her rudely for her obsession with her "Obamacare is failing" talking point
. Nope, some months you just can't win.
