Interesting and disturbing. The pieces just don't fit together. I hope they have some security footage to find the missing owner

Wow! Hope they catch the person. I'm sure it wasn't an accident!
Now that would make a perfect MDA story...probably no connection...nope.
Pleased to read that someone found it prior to a youngster picking it up.
Will be quite interested to any follow up news on this. I trust that someone did not intentionally plant the said gun in the toy section.
I hope they figure out who it was and can tie him/her to Bloomberg.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
Makes you wonder if some sicko put it there hoping a kid would pick it up and shoot someone.
I'm pointing my finger at an anti-gun extremist. They're getting desperate.
I'm glad there wasn't any accidents on a serious note. This is why we must educate children on proper firearm handling.
But it's just as likely (probably more so) that some clown who was not supposed to have a gun (e.g. convicted felon) was carrying, maybe feeling a little paranoid, saw a cop or security guard and was afraid he'd been "made". Ditched the gun to keep from getting caught with it.
I definitely wouldn't put it past the "antis" to pull something like that, but there are a WHOLE lotta dumb crooks out there, too!

And that is why my five year old has been taught gun safety.
Well it was either a.) someone that was prohibited from owning a firearm to begin with or b.) an anti-gun jackass trying to cause an incident.
It wasn't a legal concealed permit owner that's for sure. I can't think of ANY reason why you'd pull out a firearm in a toy aisle and set it down if you were legally carrying.
