Harper's office issued a statement Friday morning in quick reaction to the news that the RCMP had taken some firearms that they said weren't stored properly in empty homes.
"If any firearms were taken, we expect they will be returned to their owners as soon as possible," the statement said. "We believe the RCMP should focus on more important tasks such as protecting lives and private property."
I agree that they should of been taken due to that looters could of taken them. But they are the property of the home owners and where probably legally stored but just not in a locked safe.
