Lancaster man arrested after child finds his gun

A Lancaster man was arrested over the weekend after he left his loaded pistol at a Fort Mill playground and a 7-year-old girl found it, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
A deputy was called to Plaza Fiesta just after 1:45 p.m. Saturday by a man who said a 7-year-old girl had given him a gun that she found on the playground.
The weapon was fully loaded when the girl discovered it, the report stated.
Later, 31-year-old Anthony Roberts asked a security guard if he could have his gun back, the report stated. Roberts told the sheriff’s deputy that he had his gun on the playground and must have dropped it when he went to get his son.
Roberts has a concealed weapons permit, but signs at the entrances to Plaza Fiesta said no weapons were allowed
, the report stated. Roberts was charged with trespassing after notice because he brought the gun into Plaza Fiesta.

How the heck do you not notice you dropped your firearm or not know it's missing?

I could have gone my whole life without hearing that. How do you not know? That is how children get a hold of one and the rest is on the news to make Gun owners look irresponsible.I hope he owns up to his mistake

Many people that carry dont know the importance of a good holster..They think a generic holster off the shelf is all you need.

Hope the guy changes his ways of carrying.

Take note of this charge. In SC the signs, if proper, are proper notice and no additional notification is required. In other words unlike other states where signs do not mean anything in SC they do not have to ask you to leave. If the signs are legal and you go anyway then you are already trespassing and can be arrested.
Roberts was charged with trespassing after notice because he brought the gun into Plaza Fiesta.

I am sure he will now be subject to a few other possible charges. I am not fluent with SC law but in TX that would leave you open for leaving a firearm where accessable to children. The implications between the tresspassing and other charges will probably get him a license revocation.
But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

Although all of the information is probably not been available, this guys seems like living proof that there's not enough chlorine in the gene pool. If the evidence does prove that he was negligent, his permit should be lifted and never given back. He put a lot of people at risk, including those of us who carry responsibly. How in the hell do you drop your weapon and not know it? As a group who is judged harshly by incomplete and often inaccurate information, maybe we ought to give the guy the benefit of the doubt until all the facts are in, but on the surface, it sure sounds like this guy shouldn't be carrying plastic tableware much less a lethal weapon.
